Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement – Sewer Line Excavation

If you happen to have or had sewage backing up into your toilets, sinks or tubs it sounds like there is a problem with your sanitary line. Slow draining tubs, and toilets are another indication you may have a sewer line problem. Hearing gurgling or smell an awful smell from your drains?

When you call SWR Drain Service Ltd. about your sewer issues we will first investigate what is causing the problem. One of our sewer cleaning services or hydro jet sewer cleaning usually solves the problem, we can then perform a video inspection of sewer lines to find what was causing the issue. The video inspection will find any minor repairs that need attention but also the video inspection will also show if you require a sewer line replacement.

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

Replacing a sewer line that runs from your home or building to the street main has usually meant digging a trench, creating big mess and ruining your carefully planned landscaping.

Not anymore. SWR Drain Service Ltd. provides trenchless sewer line replacement. This method of replacing a sewer line is more cost effective and cleaner compared to traditional methods.

When Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement is the Best Solution

A trenchless sewer line replacement is the best solution when our video inspection finds:

  • Your sewer line(s) have burst due to tree root infiltration or a collection of debris has gotten so big it has broken the pipe(s).
  • Sewer lines that were not installed with the proper piping or grading.
  • Your broken or deteriorated sewer line(s) are under your home, building or beautiful landscape.
  • Your sewer line is buried very deep or is of great length.

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Advantages

There are several advantages of trenchless sewer line replacement:

  • Little or no damage is done to your landscaping and concrete work. Only 2 access points are required per sewer line.
  • Trenchless sewer line replacement cost is lower than the cost of excavation of a sewer line and replacing it.
  • Generally, a trenchless sewer line replacement project can be completed in one day.
  • New, stronger sewer line materials are installed without digging up the yard or basement.
  • The new piping seamless sewer lines prevent roots from finding loose joints to infiltrate the line looking for water plus the smooth internal surface of the lines prevents spots for debris to get caught.
  • Less mess than having to excavate the sewer line.

Sewer Line Excavation

Trenchless sewer line replacement is not the only type of sewer line replacement SWR Drain Service Ltd. can do. Sometimes the sewer line is too damaged to use the trenchless method in which case we can provide sewer line excavation services instead.
