Our Step-by-Step Sewer Repair Process

Our trenchless sewer repair process is designed with your convenience and property in mind. We utilize impact moling, a trenchless technology that allows us to install underground pipes, such as water service lines, without the need for extensive excavation. 

Here’s how it works: 

We start by digging two holes, one at the water meter and the other at the house foundation. These serve as entry and exit points for the new pipe installation. The old, problematic pipe is replaced with durable SDR9 plastic, built to last 75-100 years. This innovative approach ensures minimal disruption to your landscaping and a swift resolution to your sewer issues.

FAQs on Trenchless Sewer Repair

Trenchless pipe lining offers several significant advantages over traditional excavation methods.

  • It minimizes disruption to the surrounding environment. Unlike traditional digging, which can damage landscaping, driveways, and sidewalks, trenchless pipe lining requires only small access points, preserving your property’s aesthetics.
  • It saves time and money. Trenchless repairs are typically faster, reducing labor costs, and eliminating the need for extensive excavation lowers restoration expenses. Additionally, it minimizes the inconvenience caused by lengthy construction projects.
  • Trenchless pipe lining also enhances the durability of your pipes. The epoxy resin lining creates a seamless, jointless, and corrosion-resistant inner layer, extending the lifespan of your pipes. It also improves flow capacity, reducing the risk of future blockages.
  • Trenchless pipe lining is environmentally friendly. It reduces the carbon footprint associated with excavation, as fewer materials are transported and less disruption occurs. 

Trenchless pipe lining is a cost-effective, efficient, and eco-friendly solution for repairing and rehabilitating underground pipes.

The two most common trenchless sewer operations are pipe lining (also known as cured-in-place pipe or CIPP) and pipe bursting.

  • Pipe Lining (CIPP): This method involves inserting a flexible resin-coated liner into the existing damaged sewer pipe. The liner is then inflated, and the resin cures, creating a new, seamless inner pipe. CIPP is highly effective for repairing cracks, small-scale pipe deterioration, and preventing root intrusion. It significantly extends the lifespan of the sewer line and improves flow capacity without the need for extensive excavation.
  • Pipe Bursting: Pipe bursting is used when the existing sewer line is severely damaged or requires upsizing. It involves pulling a new, slightly larger pipe through the old one while simultaneously fracturing the old pipe outward. This method effectively replaces the damaged pipe with a new one and can accommodate larger-diameter pipes or solve more extensive issues. Pipe bursting is particularly useful in situations where traditional excavation would be impractical or costly.

Both methods offer minimal disruption, cost savings, and efficient solutions to various sewer line problems, making them popular choices in trenchless sewer repair.

The duration of trenchless pipe lining can vary depending on several factors, including the length and diameter of the pipe, the extent of damage or deterioration, and the specific conditions at the site. However, on average, a typical trenchless pipe lining project can be completed in one to two days.

Here’s a breakdown of the general timeline:

  • Preparation: This involves cleaning and inspecting the existing pipe, which may take a few hours to half a day, depending on its condition.
  • Lining Installation: The actual lining process usually takes several hours. It involves inserting the resin-coated liner, inflating it, and allowing the resin to cure. This can be done within a day, but larger or more complex projects may require additional time.
  • Quality Assurance: After the lining is cured, the pipe is inspected to ensure a proper seal and adherence. This inspection can typically be completed within a few hours.

Trenchless pipe lining is known for its efficiency and minimal disruption, making it a faster alternative to traditional excavation methods, which can take several days or even weeks, depending on the extent of digging and restoration required.

Trenchless pipe repair and rehabilitation methods offer a highly favorable alternative to traditional pipe replacement for several compelling reasons:

  • Minimized Disruption: Trenchless methods require minimal excavation, typically only needing access points at the beginning and end of the pipe. This means that landscaping, driveways, sidewalks, and other structures remain largely undisturbed, reducing property damage and costly restoration.
  • Cost-Efficiency: Trenchless techniques are often more cost-effective than traditional replacement. They reduce labor, equipment, and material costs associated with extensive digging, as well as the expenses related to restoring the affected area.
  • Faster Completion: Trenchless repairs are generally completed much more quickly than traditional replacements. This reduces the inconvenience to property owners and minimizes downtime for businesses or households.
  • Improved Pipe Lifespan: Trenchless methods not only repair the existing pipe but often enhance its longevity. Techniques like pipe lining create a durable, corrosion-resistant inner layer, effectively extending the lifespan of the pipe.
  • Eco-Friendly: Trenchless operations are environmentally friendly, as they reduce the carbon footprint associated with excavation and minimize the disposal of old pipes. This aligns with modern sustainability goals.

Trenchless pipe repair and rehabilitation offer a practical, cost-effective, and minimally disruptive solution that can extend the life of existing pipes, making them a highly attractive alternative to full pipe replacement.

    I observed Todd Snider, with Thurgood Plumbing, using the camera the check the neighbors sewer line for obstructions. Our drains have started to to slow a bit so I had them come check our main sewer drain line. The camera showed finger sized roots in our drain. Todd was able to use the proper tools to clean them out and also checked and cleared all of our interior drains.Everything drains great now!!Todd did a great professional job. He was efficient and clean in his work. I highly recommend Thurgood plumbing!!!

    Since buying our 100 year old house, Thurgood has helped us twice. And both times, Todd & Gus (our plumbers) have gone above and beyond the call to help us. Making sure we knew what needed done, giving us options within our range, communicating the entire time. It's been a game changer.

    Todd was able to come quickly and help with a variety of projects in our home. He was friendly and explained everything he was doing. He was also patient with my kids’ questions.I would have liked a little more clean up afterward (some caulk and splatter in a few places), but overall very pleased with the work.

We especially appreciate Gusto’s quick response and communication throughout this whole ordeal. Would 100% recommend!!!
    Phil Evans
    At least five stars and maybe 10⭐️!!!!TODD SNIDER has been doing an amazing plumbing job on a very disastrous rental home next door to me. This neglected home had a failed sewer main in the crawlspace and sewage has filled the it. A sump pump in the crawlspace has been discharging sewage into the yard for sometime now. When Thurgood Plumbing was called out by the management company, they came and assessed the situation and said it was a hazmat problem to start with.Bingham restoration was the disaster cleanup company that came. They did the huge job of trying to remove the sewage from the crawlspace. They worked on it for days. The water had been shut off, but the occupants in the home continued to obtain water and use the sewage system. They had also been told to leave and stay elsewhere because of the toxic fumes. All of the good work had been for not. It was finally cleaned out enough and chemically treated so that Thurgood plumbing could go into the crawl space and make the needed repairs. Now, 2 weeks later, with amazing effort from Todd, the full extent of remediation has been identified. The home has been posted “NO OCCUPANCY”. The project is now on hold waiting for the “out of state” owner to agree to bring the house into compliance.Thank you, Thurgood Plumbing and Todd Snider for your professionalism in a very difficult situation.Waiting for the next chapter….

    Richard Hirsh
    Overall, I had a great experience with Chuck and Todd. They provided excellent service and answered loads of questions I had about my water softener (which needed replacement) and the pressure relief valve (PRV) that wasn't working any more (and which could have caused serious damage to the house's plumbing system). Both men also gave me their personal cell phone numbers in case I had further questions. Wonderful people and excellent work.
    s G
    Very knowledgeable. Gave me multiple options considering my plumbing issues. On time, efficient, kept t me up to speed on what needed to ve done, the parts they had to locate. So far so good. New water heater and softener. Now just need more work on my old pipes.

    Steve H
    Paul showed up on time to diagnose our water heater issue and we had a repair estimate before he left. We also obtained an estimate for a tankless WH and after researching the brand, type and model they were going to install we decided to spend the extra money so we never run out of hot water. Paul and Troy were able to remove the old and I stall the new in about 6 hours. They laid out floor protectors and were very friendly, respectful and professional and didn't mind taking the time to explain things to me when I got nosey. Great company, value and people. Will call on them again In the future if I need anything done.
    Emily Pogue
    Gusto completed the plumbing for our ADA bathroom and kitchen remodel. He was easy to communicate with and responsive to our needs. I appreciate that he double checked with us for placement of fixtures and such. The pictures speak for themselves. All installs were completed same day and are working great.

    Athene Grimsby
    We got home from work around 3pm on a Friday and submitted a request for an appointment and within 10 minutes, Thurgood was calling us setting up an appointment for that afternoon. By 4:03, Todd texted saying he was 20 minutes out and he showed up right on time. By 7:15ish, Todd had given us our water pressure back. He might have had to work a little later than closing time but he brought us so much joy for giving us back our water pressure. HE IS AMAZING!
    Linda Littlejohn

    We had our water heater die on us and Todd from Thurgood showed up ASAP and had a replacement in place within a few hours. Good pricing and great service. I hope I don't have to call them again anytime soon, but if I do have any plumbing issues in the future, they'll be the first ones I call.
    Valerie S
    Definitely recommend - Gusto's the manStaff was quick to set up an appointment with a short show up window. We've had some pretty Mickey Mouse repairs over the years with plumbing. Often these plumbers just told me what was going to happen, versus letting me finish a sentence. Gusto was very personable from the get-go, and listened to all of my concerns. I even said, don't worry about X, we will just live with it. But he was awesome about solving issues and skipped the "mansplaining." Gusto worked diligently, and it was all done within the day. AND he even checked in the next day to make sure all was looking good. I'd highly recommend Thurgood and recommend asking for him.
    Janet Machado
    Did what he said he would do - integrity at it's best. Gusto was on time for the estimate and the work. He worked fast, did good work and left the space clean.
    Cody Fowers
    These guys came in and fixed problems that have been plaguing us since we built the home in 2016. We finally have constant and sufficient hot water, the radiant heat works, and we have no more leaks. They are very courteous, honest, and professional. Highly recommend.
    Natalie Rodriguez
    They take their business very professionally I appreciate that they contacted me about a previous service call and apologized and came back out to fix the issues I had. Most businesses would have not done that. I appreciate them making it right 👍 and staying professional about it

    Paul was great! He fixed my shower and hose bib in a friendly and professional manner. (AND didn’t break the bank) I’d recommend 100%
