Sewer Repair Services – Trenchless Repair & Pipe Bursting

Facing the prospect of a sewer repair can be a daunting thought, but with extensive experience and the latest equipment, Alpha Environmental can help make the process as smooth as possible. Our repair services include trenchless sewer line repair via pipe-bursting or directional drilling. What does that entail?

The pipe-bursting method allows us to use your current sewer line as a guide and essentially pull the new sewer line through your existing one, bursting the old sewer line out of the way. This trenchless method prevents you from having to completely dig through your yard, driveway or sidewalk in order to repair the lines. Instead excavating two holes 3 feet wide by 5 to 7 feet long down to the sewer line.  Trenchless repairs result in less damage which therefore means less cost to repair what had to have been dug up.

Directional boring is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipe, conduit, or cable in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig, with minimal impact on the surrounding area. Directional boring is used when trenching or excavating is not practical. It is suitable for a variety of soil conditions and jobs including road, landscape and river crossings.

What causes problems in your sewer line?

There are a variety of reasons for why you might be having issues with your sewer line when it is clogging & backing up. The most common causes include:

  • Tree roots growing into the pipes, causing blockage or holes in the pipe.
  • Low area in the pipe(pooling) caused by poor installation or soil movement.
  • Older pipes deteriorating and collapsing over time
  • Using your plumbing as a trash can, which can create blockages from excess garbage being disposed of in your toilet, sink & drain.
