What is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Have you been told you need to have your sewer line repaired or replaced? For the longest time, sewer repair involved a total excavation of the sewer pipe— resulting in destroyed yards, driveways, sidewalks, and even foundations. Fortunately, new technology has allowed us to avoid the massive headache of repairing not only your plumbing, but your landscaping and home.
Trenchless repair utilizes special machinery that destroys and displaces old underground pipes without having to dig them out. We use the same machine to pull new pipe through the ground in the old line’s place. While not completely devoid of digging, Trenchless usually causes minimal damage on your property which can avoid costly concrete, structural, and landscaping damage.
How long does trenchless sewer repair take?
Most jobs can be completed within a day or two at most. Because we avoid major damage to your property, it also saves time (and money) in additional non-plumbing related repairs.
Trenchless Sewer Repair Cost
While no job is the same, one thing is true—trenchless repair typically costs more up front that traditional sewer excavation. It generally requires more specialized equipment and technicians. However, it can save THOUSANDS of dollars in additional repairs to your landscaping and home. Trenchless is typically used to avoid busting up a driveway, sidewalk, or porch; removing a tree; or even damaging your basement floor. Concrete work, sod, and interior repairs can be extremely costly, so the difference in price is often offset.

“Nothing but good words to say about the team at Prime Plumbing. I had a severe leak in my kitchen. Previous contractor did not install my new sink and garbage disposal correctly. I called Prime, they sent Ryan (just excellent) and he clearly explained what the problem was and provided several solutions. I agreed to the terms and Ryan did a bang up job with the repair and clean up. I will definitely call Prime for my plumbing needs.”

“The service we received was beyond our highest expectations. We made a last-minute call expecting to have a technician arrive the next day, but we’re lucky enough to have a technician in the area. He was appropriately covered for COVID-19, extremely personable, professional and very knowledgeable about our make of jacuzzi tub. We received a prompt diagnosis and on the spot repair with minimal interruption of our household.”
