Trench-less Doesn’t Mean Can’t Trench
Conventional Sewer Pipe Replacement
While other companies may start with conventional methods for sewer pipe replacement – The Trenchless Co. only considers conventional methods for situations when trenchless methods can’t be applied, or the rare circumstance that conventional methods are more cost effective for our customers. However, just because we are The Trenchless Co. doesn’t mean that we can’t handle the job when nothing but a trench will do.
- Can be applied in circumstances where Trenchless methods cannot be used
How Does It Work
- Excavation To Expose Old Line
Excavation equipment or a hand digging team is brought in to dig up the line that needs to be replaced, following from where it leaves the foundation out to the end of the run. Areas such as patios, foundations, walkways, and landscaping is demolished along the way to provide access to the pipe below ground.
- New Line Installed
After the old line has been exposed and removed, a new line is placed into the trench created to remove the old line. The line is checked to ensure proper grade and alignment and then re-connected on either end.
- Excavated Materials Put Back
After the new line is in place, the excavated material is put back into place and the trenches refilled. As much landscaping elements as possible will be restored, but many times additional contractors are needed.

Pipe lining is a process of creating a new seamless plastic pipe within the old pipe. The process can be applied to completely replace the line or for spot repairs of problem sections - all without the expense and damage of conventional trenching methods. Because the new pipe is seamless high grade epoxy, weak joints are eliminated leading to a permanent solution.
Pipe Bursting - like pipe lining - is another method used to produce a permanent solution for sewer backups. A pipe bursting head is hydraulically pulled underground to simultaneously break apart the old pipe (even cast iron) while pulling into place a new seamless HDPE pipe. Pipe bursting sewer replacements come with a lifetime warranty.
