Everything You Need to Know About Going Trenchless


Save money and time while you help the environment when you opt for trenchless sewer line repair.

Sewer blockages, broken pipes, and corrosion can wreak havoc on your sewer line system. To correct sewer line issues, it may be necessary to excavate. At Action Drain & Plumbing, we offer a trenchless sewer line excavation service; which, depending upon your situation, may be the optimal choice in repairing or replacing your sewer line.


“We noticed slow flow on all of our drains and called Action Drain & Plumbing to take a look. During their assessment they found a blockage, explained our options, and we decided on trenchless sewer line repair. Now everything is back to working order and you can’t even tell they did any work out there!” -Sally P., Spokane

The Benefit of Trenchless Pipe-Bursting Technology

Traditional water and sewer line excavation is achieved by digging long trenches to reveal damaged pipes—removing dirt, plant life, landscaping, and hardscaping to locate and service the problem. With the development of trenchless pipe-bursting technology, the “no-dig” process minimizes most disruption.


There is no need to fret about seeding new grass or relocating a hydrangea because the benefit of trenchless sewer line repair is that our crew can avoid a large excavation site.

How It Works

Trenchless pipe-bursting technology is the process of pulling a new pipe through the current damaged line and bursting out the old line as a result. This task typically requires two openings in the water or sewer line—one for new pipe entry and another for the exit.

If sustainability and low environmental impact are important to you, trenchless sewer line repair is the best choice. When you have plumbing issues, it may seem like nothing can be done without digging everything up so you can “see the problem.” With trenchless sewer line repair that just isn’t the case. We can do the work with minimal disruption because the entry and exit openings in pipe-bursting technology result in low waste, require less energy (i.e., smaller machines), and cause limited to no environmental impact.

The cost of trenchless repair depends greatly on the size of the job—the length of pipe in question, the depth of the pipe setting, and the location of the entry and exit holes needed. We will typically do a video inspection of the sewer line to determine damage, first.
