How Does Trenchless Sewer Replacement Work?

Trenchless sewer replacement is a method of repairing or replacing underground sewer pipes without the need for extensive excavation or trenching. It is an alternative to traditional methods that involve digging trenches to access and replace the pipes.

There are several techniques used in trenchless sewer replacement, including pipe lining (also known as cured-in-place pipe or CIPP) and pipe bursting. Here's a brief explanation of how each method works:

Pipe Lining (CIPP)

  • A flexible resin-coated liner is inserted into the existing damaged or deteriorated pipe through an existing access point or small entry hole.
  • The liner is then inflated and pressed against the inside walls of the old pipe.
  • The resin is cured using hot water, steam, or UV light, causing it to harden and form a new pipe within the old pipe.
  • Once the resin has cured, the liner is removed, leaving behind a smooth, structurally sound pipe.

Pipe Bursting

  • A bursting head or expander is inserted into the old pipe through an entry point.
  • The bursting head breaks apart the existing pipe as it is pulled through the line, displacing the fragments into the surrounding soil.
  • Simultaneously, a new pipe made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) is pulled into place behind the bursting head.
  • The new pipe takes the place of the old pipe, and connections are made to complete the installation.

Both methods offer advantages over traditional excavation, including reduced disruption to the surrounding area, shorter completion times, and cost savings. 

Is trenchless sewer replacement suitable for all situations?

While trenchless sewer replacement is a versatile and effective method for many situations, it may not be suitable for all cases. The applicability of trenchless methods depends on several factors, including the condition of the existing sewer pipes, the specific requirements of the project, and local regulations. 

Here are some examples of situations where trenchless sewer replacement may not be the most suitable option:

  • Severely damaged or collapsed pipes: If the existing pipes are severely damaged, collapsed, or misaligned, it may not be possible to use trenchless methods. In such cases, traditional excavation and pipe replacement may be necessary.
  • Limited access points: Trenchless methods require access points for inserting the liners or bursting heads. If there are limited or inaccessible entry points, it can make trenchless replacement challenging or impractical.
  • Large diameter pipes: Trenchless methods are generally more suitable for smaller and medium-sized pipes. When dealing with larger diameter pipes, the feasibility and cost-effectiveness of trenchless techniques may vary.
  • Certain soil conditions: Trenchless methods rely on the ability to navigate through the existing pipe or the soil surrounding it. Certain soil conditions, such as rocky or unstable ground, may pose challenges for trenchless operations.
  • Complex pipe configurations: If the sewer system has complex pipe configurations, multiple bends, or tight spaces, it may be difficult to install the liners or bursting heads accurately, making trenchless methods less feasible.

It is important to assess the specific requirements of each situation and consult with our experienced professionals to determine the most suitable method for sewer replacement.
