What Is Trenchless Pipe Repair? 

As the name suggests, trenchless pipe repair is the process of repairing or replacing old, broken, or outdated pipes with new ones—without having to dig trenches. With traditional pipe repair and replacement, plumbing professionals must dig trenches to access the pipes. This can cause damage to landscaping, driveways, and other areas of your property. It also takes longer, as trenches must be dug and then refilled after the pipes have been repaired or replaced. 

Trenchless pipe repair, on the other hand, utilizes several different techniques to effectively reline (repair) or replace pipes without any trenches. Also known as “cured-in-place pipe” (CIPP) or pipe relining, trenchless pipe repair minimizes destruction without sacrificing results. 

How Does It Work? 

There are several different types of trenchless pipe repair, including: 

  • Pull-in-Place (PIP): The PIP method involves pulling a new, thin lining through the pipes, which is then set in place and left to cure with a two-part epoxy coating. This essentially creates a pipe within the pipe, but because the pipe liner is cut to the exact diameter of the existing pipe, the pipe itself remains the same size.
  • Continuous Inversion: With the continuous inversion method, the tube is saturated with resin. Then, a specialized device turns the material inside out (inverts it) as it is installed or pulled through the existing pipes. This method generally allows for greater lengths of pipe to be repaired or replaced than other forms of pipe repair.
  • Spray Coating: Also known as sewer spray lining or pipe coating, spray coating involves the use of a state-of-the-art, spray-on polymer resin, rather than a structural liner. This allows for greater flexibility than epoxy, which can become brittle and may crack with subtle shifts of movements of the pipes over time.
