What is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

August 12, 2021 | Blog

No one can escape the need to have a sewer system or pipes to help your waste-water get from your home to the communal sewer system. However, there are ways to make repairing or installing the necessary pipeline your home needs in an easier way to both your wallet and to your property’s aesthetic.

At Parker & Sons Plumbing, we want to help with all of your questions and concerns regarding what a Trenchless Sewer is and what entails repair. Read on to learn more from the top San Antonio plumbing experts.

What is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Trenchless sewer repair is a non-invasive method of repairing the sewer pipelines without having to destroy large parts of a building or home to reveal the internal piping. Instead, this method works by restoring existing piping internally by using the failed or broken pipe as the “host”, or baseline, to repair all the damage around it. This prevents any costly method of digging trenches all around the pipes to remove the damaged one and then fix the hole that was created.

This method also helps maintain a home or building’s structural integrity, because you are not ripping up parts of the building or yard to reveal the studs and “skeleton” of the home. By avoiding this, you’re ensuring that the pipes are able to be fixed in a way that keeps everyone involved safe.

Why it’s a Good Option

For residential properties, it allows for a faster repair timeline. Each main line is fixed per day, allowing for a more focused repair each day. This method of repair saves the homeowner upwards of thousands of dollars in extra costs to repair any wall or part of their yard that would be destroyed by the repair process needed in normal sewer repair.

The level of overall damage to your property when partaking in trenchless sewer repair is minimal at best, with the most invasive aspect being a toilet requiring removal to access the pipes and then replaced when the work is finished. Additionally, the major benefit to this method of repair is that the homeowner and residents do not need to evacuate the house while this repair occurs. The water that is being delivered to the home does not need to be shut off, allowing for a faster turnaround time in repairing, as well as allowing the homeowner to stay comfortable within their home.

For commercial properties, it allows you to keep your business open and running during operating hours as well as not having to cut off any water at any point. This gives you the peace of mind that you can continue to run your business while also getting needed maintenance taken care of. Additionally it doesn’t leave a large mess in front of your business, allowing you to keep your curb appeal!

Roberta C.

Very Knowledgeable

I recently had several plumbing leaks repaired and couldn’t be happier with the prompt service I received from Parker and Sons. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, reasonably priced, and do quality work. I would definitely recommend them to my family and everyone. I would trust them to repair any leak in the house.

Stacey C.

Amazing Service!!!

Amazing service!!! Called and came the same day within 2 hrs. Our toilet had to be re-fitted and snaked. They did a beautiful job on the re-fitting and got the large piece of plastic out of the toilet. Will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Great service, great people, hard to find these days!!!

Shakira C.

Excellent Service! We had some work done on our kitchen and Parker and Sons were able to come out to our house and help us with our remodel. Great guys and great service. I would recommend them to anyone needing a plumber service.

Brad B.

Great to Work With

Jim and his guys are great to work with. Had Parker & Sons come out to take a look at an AC unit at one of my rental properties. Unit is in the attic. Had to replace a coil on it and did a great job. Will definitely use again.

Jeff C.

Amazing Staff!

I have referred Parker and Sons to all of my customers and I would not think of referring anybody else. They have been great and very punctual. All of the plumbers and office staff have been amazing!

Miguel B.

Reasonable Prices

I was in good hands today with journeyman plumber Mark Rizley. He remained until all was better than before. He replaced a PRV and improved a mediocre repair recently done by another well known local company. The price remained reasonable despite the extra effort needed for the job. Well done Mark! Parker and Sons will be my first call in the future.

Todd D.

Fantastic Company!

This is a fantastic company with outstanding professionalism, quality of work, and customer service. While their prices are extremely competitive, their work doesn’t feel cheap like some of the companies you can hire of off Craigslist or on a FB yard sale page. This is a reputable company with proven work and licensed, skilled technicians.

Ben A.

Fair Prices & Excellent Work

Have used Parker & Sons 3 different times, once for a huge complex plumbing repair and twice for smaller jobs. Fair prices and excellent work/fast response time every time.
