Trenchless Sewer Repair


Broken water or sewer pipes can be a huge inconvenience for your family, and traditional repair methods can cause a lot of damage to your yard. In the past, repairing broken pipes required digging up landscaping, driveways, or patios. Getting your lawn fixed after being overly excavated only creates an extra expense for you.

With trenchless sewer repair, Cates Heating and Cooling can replace the damaged sewer line without a big mess or hassle. We can avoid digging up your lawn, so there are no huge piles of dirt or mud and no extensive lawn damage. Your sewer line will be repaired in a timely manner using high-quality materials that will last a long time

What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

At Cates Heating and Cooling, we use unique technology to access the sewer line from a small hole we dig in the ground. Because we only have to access the part of the line that’s damaged or blocked, we dig a much smaller hole that minimizes any mess or damage. While some digging is still involved, it’s nothing compared to those big trenches required in the past.

After we access the sewer line, we do any cleaning or repairs that are needed. Here are some potential reasons you may need trenchless sewer line repair:

  • Piping that needs to be repaired may run below your home or valuable landscaping.
  • Pipes may be broken or cracked from freezing and thawing cycles.
  • Sewer lines can burst because of debris or roots in the soil.
  • Improper initial installation may lead to leaking pipes or frequent blockages.

Trenchless sewer repair is also a lot more efficient than traditional repair methods, so you’ll be able to return to your regular schedule in no time without worrying about the hassle of lengthy repair.

How Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Work?

We typically access your sewer line from a shallow point in your yard or basement. After an initial inspection, we can fully assess what repairs need to be made for your sewer line. Here is a look into our step-by-step process for completing trenchless sewer repair.

1. Line Cleaning and Clearing

First, the main sewer line is flushed to clear debris such as tree roots, soil, or vegetation. We may need to cut through larger tree roots if they create a significant obstruction in the line. We also use water and a plumbing snake to get rid of any remaining debris.

2. Pipe Relining

After the sewer line has been cleared of any dirt or blockage, we reline the pipe. This restores any old or damaged lines, especially if the damage is minimal. The liner we use is coated with epoxy, which is inflated to press against the sides of the pipe. This creates a smooth, intact surface.

3. Final Inspection

After all repairs are completed, we inspect the line again to ensure all damage is fixed and that the sewer line meets all quality control standards. We then refill the hole we dug.
