A Brief Introduction to Trenchless Technology

Trenchless technology in its earliest form dates back to the early 1970s. This is when an agricultural engineer named Eric Wood needed a less intrusive way to fix a duct above mushroom beds. His solution: apply a new lining to the inside of the pipe to restore it internally. Today, trenchless technology has evolved to the point where it can be safely and effectively used on many types of pipes, including lateral and main sewer lines of varying sizes and diameters.

Benefit from Trenchless Repairs

No longer having to replace your azaleas and begonias – or other living parts of your landscape – is one of the top advantages of trenchless repair that we often talk about with homeowners in our service areas. When compared with traditional methods, trenchless pipe restoration or repair is often preferred for the following reasons:

  • It’s less labor-intensive – fewer workers are needed to do the job
  • There’s no heavy machinery used – a perk often appreciated by property owners
  • The results are long-lasting
  • Full pipe flow and capacity is restored
  • The original pipe is preserved

Count on Our Trenchless Services

If a trenchless repair is right for your situation, we’ll deliver prompt, long-term results. Our trenchless services in the San Francisco area include:

Trenchless Pipe Lining

Our preferred approach to minimally invasive repair is trenchless pipe lining. This method is characterized by the application of an epoxy coating to a liner that goes inside of the existing pipe. Once the coating cures or hardens, you’ll be left with a like-new pipe inside of the existing one. It’s a pipe repair method that saves time and money while also creating a smooth, flawless surface.

Common issues typically addressed with trenchless pipe lining include:

  • Tree root damage
  • Misaligned or weak pipe joints
  • Small gaps within the pipe
  • Structural damage from wear, age, or ground-shifting

Camera Inspections

Also referred to as sewer scoping, camera inspections offer a non-intrusive way to look inside pipes. Our local service technicians do this to identify the location, as well as the nature, of the problem affecting the pipe. Sewer scoping is also a quick and easy way to determine whether or not trenchless methods can be used to resolve the issue.

We conduct a sewer camera inspection by:

  1. Inserting a high-resolution camera into an existing access point or cleanout
  2. Running the scope through the pipe
  3. Viewing the results on a monitor in real-time
  4. Recording for reference
