Trenchless Sewer Repair & Replacement Methods

There are several ways to repair or replace a sewer line without digging up the entire pipe. We’ll start with an inspection and then lay out your options. Your questions are welcome and encouraged! We want you to feel comfortable and confident about the process.

Here are some of the trenchless sewer services we offer.

Trenchless Sewer Repair Wichita KS Pipe Bursting 1

Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting is a trenchless method often used for lateral sewer line replacement. The lateral is the long underground pipe that connects your home or building to the city sewer. For most single-family homes, this line runs under the front or back yard.

Back in the day, the only way to replace a lateral sewer line was to dig a trench—damaging any landscaping or concrete on top of it.

With pipe bursting, we only have one entry and one exit pit—about 3’ W x 5’ L each. We use a hydraulic-powered pulling unit to pull a new pipe through the old damaged one. The bullet head splits/breaks the old pipe out of the way, and the new pipe takes its place.

Padgett has two pulling units, so we can get to you faster. We do hundreds of pipe-bursting jobs every year. In most cases, we can do the job in one day.

Trenchless Sewer Repair Wichita KS Pipe Lining 2

Trenchless Pipe Lining

Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) lining is the least invasive way to rehabilitate a damaged sewer pipe. It sometimes requires no digging at all! All we need is one access point to feed the equipment through.

For CIPP lining, we clean the damaged pipe, then insert a felt liner. The liner contains a resin that hardens and binds tightly to the pipe’s inner walls when cured. It essentially forms a new pipe inside the old damaged one that can last for decades.

Trenchless pipe lining is usually more expensive than pipe bursting, but it can solve nearly any sewer line problem with little or even no digging. We may recommend pipe lining when pipe bursting would require digging under a building or into a basement or concrete decking.

Epoxy Resin CIPP Lining

We recommend this CIPP lining method for short runs or smaller pipes. We use top-of-the-line epoxy resin blends to ensure long-lasting installations.

Point Repair

If only a small part of a pipe is damaged, we may be able to fix it with a process called point repair. We push an epoxy-coated patch into a damaged area of the pipe. Think of it as putting a stent in an artery.

Point repair can be a cost-effective repair method for residential, commercial and industrial sewer pipes. We also use it for sewer mains and storm drains.

Trenchless Sewer Repair Wichita KS Inspection 2

Sewer Camera Inspection (Sewer Scope)

Get an inside look at your sewer line. We use an advanced camera to capture real-time footage, then analyze it to recommend the right solutions.

You don’t have to wait until something’s wrong to check your sewer line. We recommend getting a sewer scope every couple of years to spot potential issues before they become big headaches. You should always get a sewer scope done before purchasing a home. It’s well worth the money for peace of mind.
