Non-Invasive Plumbing Solutions
When you’re dealing with a problem with your sewers, such as a back-up or a leak somewhere along the line’s route from your home to the sewer, you’re in need of professional plumbing help from the team at Big Blue Plumbing. Trenchless sewer replacements, also known as pipe bursting or line pulling, is a fairly standard service and one that we proudly offer.
You may need to replace your sewer for a variety of reasons, including:
- Age. If your lines were installed a long time ago and have sustained heavy usage, they will likely require a replacement.
- Frequent clogs. If you find yourself continually dealing with clogged toilets or sinks, repairing may not be the best option and a replacement may be the better choice.
- Roots. It’s natural for roots in the ground to grow into your sewer lines, damaging them beyond repair.
- Neglect. If you haven’t had your sewer lines maintenanced routinely, the damage they’ve sustained over time may be too much to repair and they will likely require a replacement.

How Trenchless Works
The biggest advantage of trenchless sewer replacements, obviously, is that they are far less invasive than a sewer excavation, particularly when there is a driveway or landscaping. A trenchless pipe replacement works by using a cone shaped bullet, which is pulled through the existing pipe by a hydraulic hoist. The bullet is attached to a high density plastic pipe, which gets pulled through the old pipe.
Holes are dug at both ends of the sewer line and at other connections along the sewer, the new plastic pipe is then connected to the existing connections at the city main in the street (in some cases) and at the good connection where the sewer exits the building. Clean-out fittings are installed at both ends and, after inspection, the ground and concrete or asphalt are replaced. Sewer lateral replacements do require permits and inspections.
