Trenchless Sewer Replacement procedure detailing pipe bursting

When drains throughout your home begin to clog, the toilet won’t flush, and you sewer backs up, you call Rooter Medic for plumbing services right away. Once your sewer has been inspected by a professional Rooter Medic Technician, who uses a special camera to delve deep into the sewer line, he may discover that your pipes are cracked and broken, and as a result, need to be replaced.If you’re like many homeowners, this news will immediately have you picturing your yard and precious landscaping being destroyed in order to access the sewer lines. You might also imagine the cost of the project and the amount of time it will take to complete, which will inevitably cause you to stress.

Now, take a deep breath, because Rooter Medic has good news. If your sewer line needs replaced because the pipes have been crushed, punctured, disjointed, or otherwise damaged, we won’t have to destroy your yard in order to fix it. Thanks to advanced technology and innovations, sewer replacement is possible without digging or destruction. Trenchless sewer replacement is the new alternative to traditional open-trench digging.


Pipe Bursting Method Magic

Rooter Medic Technicians perform trenchless sewer replacement with a pipe bursting method that takes place exclusively underground. Steel cable and new, polyethylene pipe are used to make the magic happen. Here’s a quick overview of the process:

  1. Small access points are created at either end of the pipe being replaced. A Rooter Medic Technician inserts the cable into one end and feeds it through where the existing line lies.
  2. A cone-shaped head on one end of the cable pulls in the polyethylene pipe while “bursting” through the old pipe.
  3. Brand new, high-quality polyethylene pipe with a lifespan of up to 50 years takes the place of your old, damaged, worn-out pipes.

The process is relatively quick and easy, especially compared to traditional digging. The entry points that are created cause minimal damage at most. You save time and money and are left with the yard you started out with, but your sewer line is new and vastly improved. And the quality of pipe used for replacement helps to eliminate the possibility of root intrusions and other damages in the future.
