Most homeowners never give their sewer line a second thought until they become full of nightmare-inducing surprises. Not only can damaged sewer lines prevent you from using your sinks, showers, and toilets, but also it can pump tons of unsanitary water into and around your home. For years, a sewer line repair meant excavating your yard and breaking up driveways and sidewalks to get to your plumbing. Luckily, we have an alternative. At First Choice Plumbing, we offer trenchless pipe repair in Gainesville, which can help fix your plumbing without the need for extensive digging. The worst plumbing problems often need to be replaced along the sewer line.

What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
The unfortunate reality of sewer line repairs is that it often requires digging giant trenches through the lawn. Trenchless pipe repair avoids obliterating the yard with a unique method where only two holes are dug. First, an opening is created in a section of the basement floor or home where the sewer line exits the home. A second hole is created outside, at the point where the sewer connects to the pipeline in the yard.
A cable is then fed through the sewer line from the holes, and the new sewer line is attached to the cable and built to the second hole as a machine pulls the cable and pipe to the second hole. This new line is guided by a wedge that breaks the old plumbing line as it goes, making room for the new full-sized sewer line.
It’s also the best way to protect your yard’s bushes and trees, flowers, and landscaping that trenches can damage or require to be removed or destroyed to conduct the work.
What Can Trenchless Sewer Repair Take Care Of?
Trenchless sewer repair can take care of several plumbing troubles and is typically done to replace damaged lines causes by severe clogs, natural wear and tear, and root growth, which can all prevent the line from working properly.
Older homes often experienced bowed or bellied pipes that have sunk due to erosion or water damage to the surrounding earth. Joints and connections of pipes can also become damaged over time, resulting in the need for replacement. Perhaps more common, tree roots can puncture pipes and wreak havoc on the sewer line itself. This problem results in the inability of sewer lines to flush sewage from the pipes. Trenchless sewer repair can be used to replace these pipelines without tearing up the lawn.
Of course, if your entire plumbing system is suffering, it may be time for a larger upgrade. Be sure to ask about our whole home repiping services, and give your home a boost.
