At The Rooter Drain Expert we specialize in different methods of trenchless sewer repair and replacement. We have been working in the San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles area for many years and know which methods work best.


The most common methods are pipe bursting and trenchless pipe lining.


Lets talk about trenchless pipe bursting. It requires 2 access points. One at the start point of the problem pipe and one at the end. A special cable is ran through the old sewer system and a hydraulic puller pulls on the cable, which drags along a new pipe behind it. When the puller drives the new pipe in the old pipe will break and the puller will leave the new pipe in place. This is where the name pipe bursting comes from. It is called trenchless but it does require minimal excavation once again 2 access points. The trenchless pipe bursting happens in between the 2 access points just as pictured left. This prevents the need to excavate the entire lenght of the pipe to be replaced, thus saving drive ways, time and money to the home owner.
