The standard way that the sewage system in a home works is that the wastewater drainage pipes lead to one central sewer line. This line runs underneath the front lawn of a house and to the main sewer line in the center of the street. Although sewers lines are built of durable material, they are still susceptible to breaks, damage, root infiltration, and (if made from steel) corrosion. Repairs and sewer line replacement can require extensive digging.
This is why trenchless pipe replacement is such an exciting development. It removes the need for time-consuming and disruptive digging that rips up landscaping and sometimes even sidewalks and driveways.

How Trenchless Technology Works
Trenchless sewer lines are a non-invasive method of installing (and repairing) pipes. Instead of digging an open trench and laying the lines deep under your property, your plumber only needs to dig small holes at the beginning and end of the pipe.
So how do repairs work without the need to dig? A hydraulic pump at one end of the pipe needing repairs pulls in a new pipe-liner or a pipe-bursting attachment from the other end. The liner enters the damaged pipe and seals it. For more extensive replaces, the pipe-burster shatters the older pipe and the new one is pulled in.
Aside from providing little disruption to your property, trenchless technology takes much less time to do, which means it costs less in labor. It’s also much easier for plumbers to diagnose problems with trenchless sewer lines because they can quickly access the pipes’ interior with video inspection equipment.
