How to Repair Pipes Without Digging

Water and sewer lines can crack, burst, or corrode. When this happens, most homeowners will dread getting the repairs done because it can be inconvenient and expensive.

But did you know that repairing underground pipes doesn’t have to ruin your yard, sidewalks, and landscaping? When you need repairs completed on your underground pipes, there is a no-dig solution: trenchless pipe repair.


Trenchless pipe repair technology means that contractors use a robotically controlled device that won’t disturb landscaping, sidewalks, or streets. The robotic device makes the repair, and then reconnects the sewer line to the main after the new lining is put in.

A video camera inspection will be done to pinpoint the exact cause of the damage and how the damage is affecting the water or sewage flow. This means that some of the guesswork is eliminated and it allows the plumber to focus exactly on the area in the section that needs the most work. Knowing this will save you money in repair costs and can also help prevent future problems.



This type of repair can be done on most water pipe and sewer situations. Here are some scenarios that trenchless repair can work well.

Trenchless pipe replacement and repair has been around for more than 20 years, but it is still considered somewhat new in the plumbing field. Because of this, it’s important to remember that not all jobs will qualify for this type of repair, so be sure to talk to a plumbing professional before you make a decision.

    Apollo jetted the basement drain line in our old 1927 Portland house. The line has been backing up thru the floor drain for a while. The technician cleared out the line with the hydro-jet, and it’s running great now. On-time and professional!

    Apollo Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning was on time, professional, and very knowledgeable. He took the time to inspect our rain drain to our dry well and do everything he could to alleviate the issue. I would highly recommend Apollo, they were informative and straight forward. Honesty is obviously a value they uphold for their customers.
