When is trenchless pipe repair the best option?

Trenchless pipe repair is a solution to a potentially ugly problem and includes most sewer and water pipe repair situations, such as:

  • Pipes that run below ground, under landscaping and/or underneath your house or apartment building
  • Burst sewer pipes from blockages due to tree roots and household debris in the lines
  • Persistent sewer backups or leaking sewer lines due to improperly installed pipes>
  • Broken and cracked water pipes due to earth movement or house settling
  • Pipe damage from repeated ground freezing and thawing
  • A perfectly intact pipe may need work when you need a larger water line to better accommodate the needs of your household

What is Pipe Pull?

The Pipe Pull technique replaces broken sewer or water lines, using just a small hole at the beginning and end of the piping run. The damaged sewer line serves as a guide to place the new pipe, which is pulled in with a large pointed installation head. The new, replacement pipe is code compliant, non-leaking, root-deflecting, chemical resistant piping, with a century long lifespan.

What is pipe relining?

Pipe relining eliminates any need for removal of broken pipes. We essentially create a brand new pipe right inside the old one. Your Mr. Rooter plumber inserts lining material, coating the interior of the existing pipe. Next, an air-filled bladder is used to hold the lining in place until it hardens. Then, the bladder is pulled out, leaving behind a new, strong and seamless pipe, inside the old sewer line or water pipe.

Maintenance Is Cost-Effective Pipe Insurance

Mr. Rooter offers drain cleaning, plumbing maintenance and free inspections to help avoid catastrophic sewer pipe cracks and overflows, plumbing leaks, clogged drains and backups. Ask about our Advantage Plan.
