How Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Work?

The beautiful trees in your yard could lead to a serious problem with your sewer line. It’s common for homeowners to encounter tree root intrusions that cause damage to their underground sewer lines. As the roots of the trees grow under the surface they naturally seek out moisture, so wastewater pipes are hard to resist. Roots can enter pipes through joints or gaps. As they absorb the water inside they expand, eventually causing damage. Traditional tree root sewer line repair entails digging all the way through to the line, tearing up massive amounts of grass and landscaping in the process.

How Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Work?

Fortunately, Mr. Rooter® Plumbing has a far better solution than digging up your lawn to find the source of the tree root intrusion. With trenchless sewer repair, your lawn stays completely intact so you won't have to worry about the costly and lengthy process of repairing your property.

A team of expert plumbers will examine the line using a camera made specifically for sewer line inspections. Once they snake the camera through your sewer line and find the source of the intrusion, our skilled plumbers will use a high-powered water jet to flush out the pipe from its shallowest point, typically found in your basement or near the perimeter of your home.

Once the old pipe is flushed, a new one made from a quick-curing resin is installed. Once the resin pipe has dried, or “cured,” the camera is once again inserted to check the new line. The entire process can usually be completed in a day, and you can have your sewer service restored immediately when finished.
