Trenchless Sewer Lining

Trenchless sewer repair brings a contemporary approach to pipe repair. True to its name, this technique avoids the large trenches that are usually a staple of conventional methods. Many favor this method for its minimal disruption and potential cost savings. It keeps the landscaping and structures intact by eliminating extensive digging. While there are various types of trenchless techniques, the key advantage lies in their ability to fix problems without significant excavation.

What Determines the Cost for Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

What’s the difference between a $2,000 sewer line repair and a $20,000 repair?

Here are some factors to consider that can help figure out the overall price you’ll pay:


The complexity of installing longer pipelines, which require more materials and significant excavation, results in greater time and labor investment. These extended systems often need extra connectors, potentially introducing weak points. Costs may also rise due to any necessary bends or angles in the piping.


The location of a pipe can significantly affect repair costs. Trenchless sewer repair becomes particularly advantageous when dealing with lines that are difficult to access, such as those under concrete. Traditional repair methods in these cases might necessitate wall penetration or street excavation, leading to additional demolition and repair costs, which can vary based on local regulations.


Trenchless sewer repair and replacement techniques, while not always cheaper than traditional methods, offer advantages in terms of reduced disruption. They bypass the need for extensive digging and landscaping restoration. This makes them potentially more economical, especially in scenarios involving complex yards or pipelines embedded in concrete.


Estimating labor costs for sewer line repairs can be challenging since it’s not a DIY project. Professional plumbers generally charge hourly rates ranging from $50 to $150, depending on their level of expertise. On the other hand, trenchless pipe repairs often have a fixed rate per foot, offering a more predictable cost structure.


Cracked Pipe

Pipes damaged by freezing temperatures or heavy surface traffic can often be effectively repaired using trenchless techniques like lining and spin-casting. This method, which generally costs between $60 to $250 per foot, tends to be more cost-effective than completely overhauling an entire sewer line system.


Tree Roots

Tree root intrusion in sewer lines is a common issue. In these instances, a plumber may opt for a ‘spot repair’—replacing just the affected pipe section rather than the entire line. This targeted approach can efficiently resolve the root-caused blockages.

Bellied Line

When a subsurface pipe sinks or collapses, it can hinder water flow and lead to blockages. Unfortunately, such collapsed lines often require full replacement. However, trenchless methods may be a feasible alternative in certain scenarios. The costs for traditional excavation repairs or replacements usually fall between $50 to $200 per foot, while trenchless techniques range from $60 to $250 per foot, offering a potentially more cost-effective solution.

Quick Detection

Camera Inspection

If you have concerns about your sewer line’s condition, scheduling a camera inspection is a wise first step. Although the results might be unsettling, they will provide clarity on your available options for sewer line repair or replacement. Tackling sewer line replacements is a substantial undertaking, necessitating thoughtful financial preparation. Therefore, if you know your sewer line is getting older or has had past problems, it’s sensible to proactively allocate funds for potential future repairs. Thank you.
