Our Seattle trenchless sewer line installation and repair are performed using a variety of methods. We start by inspecting your sewer line to locate the problem and the extent of the damage.

Your Options for Trenchless Sewer Work
We offer two types of trenchless sewer options:
- Pipe bursting includes the installation of a new, flexible pipe (SDR-17) that is pulled through your existing sewer. It requires an access hole at both ends of whatever segment we are replacing. It uses your existing sewer as a conduit that gets burst, or pushed out of the way, as the new pipe pull through. The pipe is seamless, because we fuse together sections with a special hot iron. This means there are no couplings or fittings to fail or allow roots in. Once connected, the pipe is filled with water to test for any leaks or flaws.
- Perma-Lining is a method we use when we only have one access point due to obstacles or cost. For instance, if we want to replace the section of sewer from your property line to the city main, we can dig a hole on your property and "line” the pipe to the middle of the street without the exorbitant cost of digging a hole in the middle of the street. We can save you thousands by installing a liner. The Perma-Liner is an epoxy that enters the pipe as a soft, thick, glue-type material that hardens into a shell after it is exposed to hot water. There are some limitations to the liner, such as collapsed pipe or major holes in the pipe, but when it is an option, it will save you money and headaches.
If you are interested in trenchless sewer work, we can inspect your sewer with a camera and come up with the best options for you. We offer a 10-year warranty on both options above to protect you from defects or installation errors, but they are considered 100-year materials.
