Is your sewer struggling with clogs or does it seem to be leaking? It doesn’t matter what caused the problem because you can always call Apollo Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning about trenchless sewer repair in Hillsboro.
Our professional plumbers will repair your sewer without digging up your entire front yard. Utilizing trenchless sewer repair technology, we’ll get everything flowing again so you can get things back to normal.
What is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
When most homeowners ponder sewer line repair, they think about bringing in backhoes that dig up their whole yard to unearth the sewer line. Over the last few years, however, plumbers have moved away from traditional sewer repair methods like these.
Now, we handle most sewer repairs via the hatch inside your house or in your yard. We’ll begin the process by sending a camera down through this port and the whole length of your sewer line. This gives us a 360-degree view of the entire sewer so we can see precisely what has gone wrong. Whether your line is clogged, corroded, or clogged, the camera will show us.
The camera also permits us to determine the location of the problem. We have specialized equipment that can detect its signal from the ground.
Once we know what has gone wrong and where the issue is located, we’ll let you know if trenchless sewer repair technology will work for you. The vast majority of sewer repairs use either pipe relining/cured in place pipe (CIPP) or pipe bursting in Hillsboro.
Pipe Relining or Cured In Place Pipe (CIPP)
Pipe relining, or cured in place pipe (CIPP), allows us to replace a piece of pipe when the rest of the line is still intact. We’ll dig a small hole, then tug a flexible pipe through your current line. When it’s in the right location, we’ll inflate it. A resin attaches it to the existing pipe and covers any holes or cracks.
Pipe Bursting in Hillsboro
Pipe bursting in Hillsboro allows us to replace large sections of a broken pipe. We’ll dig two holes, then pull a new section of pipe armed with a bursting head through the broken pipe. The bursting head destroys the old pipe while pulling the new pipe into the right spot.
Both of these technologies allow for your sewer line repair without destroying your yard.
Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Repair
The benefits of trenchless sewer repair go beyond salvaging your yard.
They also allow for:
- Lower-priced sewer repair. Not only are you not paying to replace your yard, but you’re also not paying to bring in a dig crew and their backhoe. All of this makes trenchless repairs cheaper than traditional ones.
- A safer repair. Digging up the sewer can release gases and fumes that would be better off remaining underground. Trenchless sewer repair keeps them down where they belong.
