Trenchless Pipe Repair
Trenchless pipe repair methods for water and sewer line replacement became available for residential homes about 12 years ago, but many potential consumers are not aware it is an option. Sewer and water pipe replacement decisions are usually made in emergency situations, which makes it increasingly difficult for consumers to become educated on its viability as an alternative option to traditional trenching in water and sewer line replacement.

Clog Pro happily offers directional drilling as a method of trenchless sewer and water pipe replacement technology. Directional drilling enables us to drill through all types of soil and rock, without causing any disturbance to natural habitats, gardens, walkways, sidewalks or play areas. This technology allows us to replace your damaged water or sewer pipes quickly and efficiently while being environmentally friendly, resulting in the least amount of disruption to your home’s surrounding areas.
The pipe bursting method of trenchless technology involves pulling a new pipe through the damaged water or sewer pipe. The new pipe, which is made of polyethylene, is pulled through the damaged pipe using a high powered pulling machine, while concurrently breaking the outer pipe. Pipe bursting normally requires access holes be dug on one side of the lateral (directional drilling). The new polyethylene (PE) pipe is electro-fused in sections to become one continuous whole, seamless line. PE pipe is much smoother, more resistant to abrasion, and will not be damaged by microbiologically induced or chemical corrosion. The benefits to pipe bursting include fewer labor hours, undisrupted property, and easier clean up as well.
