How Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Works
There are several trenchless sewer repair techniques, but the most common is epoxy pipelining, which we offer at Three Way Plumbing. In this process, a flexible epoxy liner is inserted into the pipe inside out, and air pressure is used to invert the liner and roll it into place.
Once the epoxy cures, it creates a rigid pipe very close to the diameter of the original, and the new pipe has a service life of several decades or longer. It’s a durable, long-lasting repair with far less digging and damage, and it’s ideal for homes where excavation would be challenging.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does trenchless sewer repair last?
The epoxy pipe lining process essentially creates a new pipe inside the old one, and once the pipe has cured, it’s quite durable. Most trenchless pipe repairs will last several decades or longer, often up to 50 years.
New sewer pipes can last 50 to 100 years, depending on the material, but a conventional pipe replacement would require digging up large portions of your yard.
How does trenchless sewer repair work?
The epoxy pipelining method uses a video camera to check for damage that would prevent the repair, such as crushed pipes or sharp bends. Then, the pipe is cleaned with a hydro jetting system.
Next, a flexible, epoxy-impregnated liner is inserted into the pipe, and air pressure is used to invert or inflate the liner, expanding it to fill the entire length and diameter of the existing pipe.
Once the pipe cures, final connections can be made. Depending on the pipe’s location, a small access hole may need to be excavated at one or both ends, but the amount of digging and damage is far less than traditional sewer repair.
Is trenchless sewer line repair cheaper?
The price of trenchless sewer repair is competitive with traditional repair methods that use extensive excavation to remove and replace the pipe.
Often, a traditional sewer repair is slightly less expensive than a trenchless repair, but if you have costly landscaping, buildings, driveways, or walkways over the top of the pipe, the additional costs to relocate or repair those items can increase your overall costs.
In such cases, a trenchless pipe repair may be the most cost-effective option. Trenchless pipe repair is also significantly faster, which can be beneficial if you have a tight schedule.
