Understanding your sewer line replacement options is crucial for restoring proper functionality to your plumbing system. At CPI Service, we offer comprehensive sewer line replacement services, including both traditional trenching methods and innovative trenchless options, to meet the unique needs of our customers.

Traditional Trenching:

Traditional sewer line replacement involves digging trenches to access and replace the damaged or deteriorated sewer line. While this method is effective, it can be disruptive and time-consuming, requiring excavation of your property to access the sewer line. However, in some cases, trenching may be the most practical and cost-effective solution, especially for older homes with extensive damage or tree root intrusion.


Benefits of Traditional Trenching:

  • Cost-Effective: Trenching is often more affordable than trenchless methods, making it a viable option for homeowners on a budget.
  • Reliable: Traditional trenching methods have been used for decades and are proven to provide reliable and long-lasting results.
  • Customizable: Trenching allows for precise placement of the new sewer line, ensuring optimal functionality and performance.


Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement:

Trenchless sewer line replacement offers a less invasive alternative to traditional trenching methods, minimizing disruption to your property and reducing the time and cost of the replacement process. There are two main trenchless techniques:

  1. Pipe Bursting: This method involves pulling a new pipe through the existing sewer line, simultaneously breaking apart the old pipe and replacing it with the new one. Pipe bursting requires access points at each end of the sewer line but eliminates the need for extensive excavation.

  2. Pipe Lining: Pipe lining, also known as cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining, involves inserting a flexible liner coated with epoxy resin into the existing sewer line. The liner is inflated and cured in place, creating a seamless, durable inner pipe within the existing one. Pipe lining is ideal for repairing minor damage and restoring the structural integrity of the sewer line without excavation.


Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement:

  • Minimal Disruption: Trenchless methods require minimal excavation, preserving your landscaping, driveways, and other property features.
  • Faster Completion: Trenchless sewer line replacement can typically be completed more quickly than traditional trenching methods, reducing downtime and inconvenience for homeowners.
  • Cost Savings: While trenchless methods may have a higher upfront cost, they can result in long-term savings by minimizing the need for restoration and repair of landscaping and property features.


Trenching Involved in Sewer Line Replacement:

During traditional trenching, our technicians will excavate a trench along the path of the existing sewer line, typically from the house to the connection point with the municipal sewer system. The depth and width of the trench will vary depending on the location and depth of the sewer line. Once the old sewer line is removed, the new pipe will be installed and connected, and the trench will be backfilled and restored.
