Instead of digging up all of the plumbing ona property, trenchless sewer pipe repair uses a new pipe lining to clear obstacles. First, call a plumber for a video camera inspection of the existing pipes, which will help determine whether relining the sewer pipe is the best option.
If the inspection shows trenchless sewer pipe repair to be the best way to fix the problem, the plumber will flush out the pipe to clear loose obstacles. A new lining will then be prepared and injected with a resin that will later be cured to keep obstacles within the pipe at bay and allow water to flow easily again.

The newly replaced lining will provide many more years of service before needing any more attention.
