In the past, water and sewer line repair was a messy process. It meant digging up your entire yard to unearth pipes just to rebury them and deal with the damage to your lawn. Thankfully, technology has come a long way, and now it's possible to repair most sewer or water line damage with little to no digging.
At Canyon Plumbing & Heating, we offer the highest-quality trenchless water and sewer line repair services in Boulder, CO. You can count on us for timely, clean, courteous service.
If you need to break through tough build-up in your pipes, our hydro-jetting services might be just what you need.
How Trenchless Pipe Replacement Works
Our plumbers start the trenchless water line installation process by using a fiber optic inspection camera to locate the problem in your pipe. We then prepare by creating a pipe that matches your plumbing system and digging small access points at the beginning and end of the damaged pipe.
We feed a cable through the first access point to pull along an expandable head, which will burst apart the old pipe to make room for the replacement. The cable also drags the pipe liner into position before we extract it from the second access point, leaving your new pipe section in place.
While the liner cures into place, we perform a second video inspection to confirm that the replacement is working. We can perform pipe relining using similar methods.
With relining, instead of a bursting head, our specialists pull an inflatable bladder through the access points to place fiberglass material at the damaged section of the pipe. Then we cure it with epoxy resin to ensure that your old pipe will work like new.
When You Need Trenchless Pipe Repair
Even without video inspection, there are some easy ways to tell if your plumbing system needs professional attention. If you notice any of the following signs, you should contact us for trenchless sewer or water line repair:

Benefits of Trenchless Water Line Repair
By digging two shallow access points for your trenchless water main replacement, we avoid the intrusive methods required by traditional pipe repair methods. We won’t have to dig up large portions of your basement, garden, or yard, and less digging work means that you save money as well.
This method is also much faster. The entire inspection process, pipe bursting, and pipe curing only take a few hours. Some trenchless pipe replacements only take a single day to complete.
