Trenchless pipe installation is a great way for people to save on labor costs and also reduce the amount of excavation needed during residential sewer repair. That being said, if you choose the wrong company for trenchless installation, you might end up with a bigger problem on your hands. At Street Works Engineering, our licensed plumbers know how to safely and effectively use trenchless sewer line repair to fix broken and crumbling pipes. Our customers trust us to provide unrivaled, lasting professional service at competitive prices.

Why is trenchless pipe installation the better option?

For starters, it requires very little excavation. Traditional sewer line repair involves digging massive amounts of dirt and concrete even when the affected section is rather small. Additionally, these repairs cost more because of the equipment and manpower used. Trenchless repair and installation is the better choice because it’s a less invasive process that requires less time on the job and very little disturbance to your yard or driveway.

Trenchless Techniques

There are two ways that our plumbers use trenchless technology: pipe bursting and hammerhead mole installation. Let’s take a moment to go over the basics of each of these options.

Pipe Bursting: After a video camera inspection reveals the location of the damaged section of pipe, we determine if pipe bursting is a reasonable option. If the answer is yes, we then draw a new pipe through the existing pipe. The new pipe has a metal tip that breaks up the old, damaged pipe as the new pipe moves through it and into place. A positive about pipe bursting is that only a small hole needs to be made at the yard’s surface to access the pipe and lay the new one.

Hammerhead Mole: Unlike pipe bursting, the hammerhead mole is a tunneling device. The mole is deployed underground where it tunnels through the soil, creating a pathway through sensitive parts of the yard where a trench isn’t ideal to place. Once the tunnel forms, the Hammerhead mole pushed the new pipe through and into place. While this technology offers budget-friendly options for our customers, it’s not always an option. Soil conditions must be favorable. Your technician will help you determine if your soil meets the requirements.
