The “No Dig” Solution
We rely on the trenchless sewer and water line repair service to meet the needs of customers who want sewer repairs done in a shorter time, and do not want their landscaping dug up. The technology is faster and there is no digging involved.
Saving Time, Money & Your Yard
Our customers are happy and excited when we explain the trenchless technique to them. They are relieved once they understand their yard doesn’t have to be excavated as part of the sewer repair or replacement process. Trenchless sewer repair provides a reliable option that minimizes the damage and disruption to a homeowner’s or business’ yard and landscaping.
Introduced in 2004, the trenchless pipe bursting method has become widely accepted and a preferred option to full excavation. Whether you are installing or repairing underground sewer or water lines, or seeking options to excavation, the trenchless “no dig” pipe bursting method is an excellent solution.
Experienced & Trained in Trenchless
Trenchless sewer pipe bursting requires specialty equipment and properly trained plumbing technicians. Proactive Sewer & Drain has been performing trenchless sewer and water line repairs since the technology was introduced, and we have an expert team to perform these jobs.
Trenchless Sewer Replacement Technology – How It Works
Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of replacing underground sewer, water, or natural gas pipelines without having to dig trenches throughout the yard. There is a launching and receiving pit dug where the new pipe is fed in and out, eliminating the need for full length trenches.
The pipe bursting machine is set in the receiving pit and is connected to the pipe at the entry via a cable. The machine pulls the “bursting” head and new HDPE pipe into the line. In the process of pulling the new pipe through, the old pipe is broken apart and the new pipe replaces it.
Once the new pipe has been pulled entirely through, our technicians connect the new sewer pipe to the sewer main line, the entry pits are filled back in, the city inspects the line to make sure everything meets code, and you’re back in business!
Why You Should Consider Trenchless
It can be difficult to make an accurate assessment regarding sewer line problems without excavating your property. However, excavating is a unsettling technique that can potentially cause damage to your property, and it is very labor intensive.
- Shorter project completion time
- No damage to landscaping and infrastructure
- Ideal for sewer and water lines
- Proven technology

When the scenario is right, the trenchless method can be used instead of excavation. The trenchless “no dig” technology allows you to replace your sewer line without digging up your driveway, yard, landscaping, lawn and sidewalks.
