What Is Trenchless Plumbing?

Trenchless plumbing was created in 1970 by an Englishman named Eric Wood. The term

“trenchless plumbing” represents a set of modern plumbing methods that removes the need to actually dig trenches in order to replace or repair plumbing lines. There are two main techniques that encompass the definition of trenchless plumbing which are pipe relining and pipe bursting.

The professionals here at After Hour Plumbing & Drain understand how important knowledge is, and we strive to equip our customers with as much of it as possible. So here is a brief rundown of these two main techniques.

Trenchless Pipe Relining

Trenchless sewer pipe lining is the most non-invasive method of below-ground pipe repair. A properly lined sewer pipe can extend the use of your home’s sewage pipes by 50 years, essentially creating a new pipe inside of the existing one.

This process is done by inserting an epoxy-covered liner — essentially a balloon — and then inflating the liner until it completely fills the interior space of the pipe. After several hours pass, the epoxy hardens, forming the walls of the “new pipe”. The liner is then deflated and removed.

This epoxy-based method has multiple benefits. Not only does it seal any cracks or leaks in the existing pipe, but it also resurfaces the entire pipe, reducing the chance of clogs in the future.

Trenchless Pipe Replacement (Pipe Bursting)

Trenchless pipe replacement works by destroying the current pipe while immediately replacing it with another. This method is generally only used in cases where a lining isn’t sufficient and the pipes need to be replaced outright. Here’s the process:

  • Two holes are dug allowing access to the pipes — an entrance and an exit.
  • A specialized auger is fed through the pipe that is shaped like a cone. This bit destroys the current pipe as it’s fed through, breaking it down in a way that pushes it out of the way of its replacement.
  • As the old pipe is being destroyed, a new pipe is immediately fed behind it, installing a replacement.

Regardless of your issues, it’s almost guaranteed that After Hour Plumbing & Drain will have a trenchless solution for whatever pipe issue you could be facing. We strive to provide the highest quality Monterey pipe relining and when needed, replacement..
