question-mark-badgeIf you live in a house with a connection to the municipal sewer system (which is the majority of homes in the Cincinnati Area, but certainly not all) then the sewer line that runs from the house and out to the city pipeline in the street is your responsibility.

It’s a big job—but if it doesn’t get done, the consequences for your home will be unpleasantly high.

But trenchless technology gives our plumbers the ability to handle a repair or replacement in only a few hours—and with almost no digging!

The standard method for replacing and repairing residential sewer lines for many decades was through excavation work. In order to access the pipeline, digging equipment must tear open property from the side of a house to where the sewer pipe crosses underneath the property line. The process is extremely messy, making the area around a home appear like an archaeological dig, and it is also expensive and time-consuming.

It’s also not the only way to handle service for sewer lines. Meet trenchless technology.
