When Are Trenchless Solutions Necessary?


Ready to go trenchless in Walnut Creek, CA? Absolute Plumbing and Drain offers minimally invasive alternatives to traditional excavation. While trenchless solutions aren't right for every situation, there are many instances when trenchless options we offer can be a great way to complete underground repairs or installations.

Your Pipes Have Been Damaged by Tree Roots

Tree roots are a common reason for structural damage in pipes. If this is what's affecting your pipes, trenchless pipe repair may be necessary to repair the damage. This is more likely to be the case as long as the pipe is still structurally sound.

Drains are Slow and/or Clogging Frequently

Trenchless sewer repair may be what we recommend if there's structural damage primarily limited to one area that's affecting your drains. Misaligned joints, for instance, can slow drains or increase your risk of having partial or full blockages.

Your Underground Pipes Are Leaking

Trenchless sewer replacement and repair are minimally disruptive trenchless solutions we may recommend if your underground pipes are leaking. The specific method that's right for the situation will depend on where the leak is located and the extent of the damage that's causing it.

You Have Older Cast Iron Pipes

One other reason why trenchless pipe lining may be necessary is because of older cast iron pipes that need to be strengthened or repaired in certain spots. Lastly, trenchless solutions we offer can also be beneficial for:

  • Gas line repairs or installations
  • Pipe replacement with pipe bursting that replaces the pipe within an existing space
  • Sewer and water line installations
