Eliminate Extensive Demolition and Rebuilding with Trenchless Repairs

Trenchless plumbing repair is a method of fixing sewer pipes without having to excavate large portions of the home’s foundation, walls, floors, and other areas throughout the property. Traditional plumbing sewer line repair involves digging a long, deep path through the building’s foundation. Not only can this practice jeopardize the structural integrity of your building’s slab, but it also brings about the need for extensive and expensive repairs to the building once the plumbing work is complete. If you wish to avoid the time and effort associated with these types of repairs, there is an alternative. JIG PLUMBING offers trenchless plumbing repair in Chino, CA, and the surrounding communities. Our team is experienced and equipped and ready to go, so call 844-899-9054 to get started.

How does trenchless plumbing repair work?

There are four primary kinds of trenchless sewer repair, and each one works a little differently. 

  1. Structural pipe lining (also known as cured-in-place-pipe lining). This method of trenchless repair involves creating a new pipe within the old one. An epoxy-soaked liner is inserted into the damaged pipe and left to cure for a few hours. Once the new pipe is dry, it is completely sealed and free from all the issues associated with the previous pipe. 
  2. Spray lining and brush coating. Similar to structural pipe lining, spray lining and brush coating involves spraying or brushing an epoxy or flexible polymer into the damaged pipe.
  3. Slip lining. Slip lining is an old method dating back to the 1940s. This process involves inserting a small diameter pipe into the damaged one and filling the space between the old and new pipe with grout. 
  4. Pipe bursting. Pipe bursting is a trenchless plumbing repair method that involves breaking and expanding the current sewer line while simultaneously replacing it with new high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes. 

What are the benefits of trenchless plumbing repair?

Trenchless plumbing takes a lot less time than traditional methods since it eliminates the need for extensive demolition. While trenchless methods tend to have higher upfront costs, you won’t have to spend thousands of dollars repairing floors, walls, and your property after you use trenchless plumbing repair methods. In addition to being less destructive, trenchless repairs are also just as effective as traditional methods. 

While trenchless plumbing repairs are certainly effective and less destructive, it doesn’t work for every situation. If your pipe is back-pitched, improperly graded, or collapsed, trenchless methods won’t work. Other times, trenchless methods aren’t cost effective. For example, if the pipe needing repair isn’t buried very deep and is easily accessible, it might be more cost effective to use traditional methods. However, if the damaged pipe is buried below a swimming pool or driveway, for example, trenchless would be the way to go, as the cost to repair damage to a pool or driveway would be extensive.
