It may be possible to repair or replace your sewer using a trenchless technology known as pipe bursting, which minimizes the amount of digging involved. Dwyer Plumbing provides trenchless “no dig” solutions known as pipe bursting or  in Northern Virginia.

What is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Before trenchless technology, the way to repair a sewer line was to dig a trench—sometimes a really large one—in your yard to access and replace your sewer line. Sometimes, areas like walkways or driveways had to be dug up and replaced. As you can imagine, that could get expensive and messy. Trenchless sewer repair allows sewer repair technicians to replace your sewer line without digging a trench.

With trenchless technology, some digging is still required, but the impact on your landscaping is minimal. One of the best parts about trenchless repair is that your entire sewer is replaced—not just repaired. Trenchless technology also allows us to follow your existing sewer’s path. Dwyer Plumbing’s trenchless technology gives you minimally invasive sewer repair—saving you time, money, and cosmetic damage to your lawn.

Trenchless Technology: Pipe Bursting

It might be possible to repair or replace your sewer using a trenchless technology method known as “pipe bursting,” which minimizes the amount of digging we have to do. While pipe bursting may sound bad, it’s absolutely not!

During the pipe bursting process, we dig two holes that can be used to repair or replace short or long sections of your sewer pipe. After the holes are dug, we insert a cable into the pipe that’s attached to a bursting head. We then pull that through the sewer line, which breaks away the old pipe while inserting a new one in its place.
