Types of Trenchless Solutions for Water, Gas, & Sewer Line Repair in NJ

Until quite recently, the only way to install underground pipes, or to access them for repairs, was to excavate a trench and expose the pipe. Within the last 25 years, however, this has changed considerably. Technological developments like fiber optic sewer camera systems and trenchless sewer repair techniques have led to new innovations in construction, sewer services, and civil engineering, which have reduced the need for excavation. The term “trenchless technology” encompasses a variety of systems, tools, and techniques used for installing or repairing underground pipes and infrastructure with little to no excavation. As local contractors specializing in NJ sewer services, we offer trenchless solutions for situations when sewer excavation is unnecessary or unfeasible.

There are quite a few varieties of trenchless sewer line installation and repair techniques, many of which are useful in different settings or for different purposes. Trenchess solutions have found their way into projects of all sizes, from minor residential sewer line repairs to large-scale municipal sewer systems.

Here are a few of the most common types of trenchless technologies that we use for residential, commercial, and municipal sewer, water, and gas projects.

Horizontal Directional Drilling

Horizontal directional drilling (HDD), also known as “directional boring,” is a steerable trenchless technique for installing underground pipes, as well as cables and conduits. When trenching or excavation is impossible due to local topography or other obstacles, horizontal directional drilling provides a solution. It’s suitable for nearly all soil conditions found in New Jersey, and can be used to install large pipes up to 54″ in diameter and 8,000 feet in length. (That’s over a mile.) The pipes, which can be made from any number of materials like metal or PVC, are installed along a designated bore path, and can go underneath roads, small waterways, and other obstacles to trenching.

Pipe Plowing

Pipe plowing allows for trenchless sewer and water line installation by pulling a plow blade through the ground. This is suitable for pipe installation at depths up to about 7.5″.

Pipe Ramming

Pipe ramming is a trenchless sewer line installation and replacement technique that uses a pneumatic hammer, an alterantive to jack and boring installation. The intended grade can be set and controlled by contractors, and the pipe ramming approach is suitable for installing lengths of pipe up to 150 feet. It’s quite commonly used for culvert pipe installation.

Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting uses a pneumatic bursting head to break apart an old and damaged water or sewer pipe, pulling a new length of pipe in place behind it. This allows contractors to perform water and sewer line replacement in areas where excavation is impossible or highly unfeasible.

Slip Lining

Slip lining, favored for its cost effectiveness, is an excavation-free sewer repair method that can repair leaks and restore stability to damaged but salvageable underground pipes. A new pipe is inserted inside the old one, with a slightly smaller diameter. Grout is applied to fill the annular space between the two pipes.

CIPP Sewer Relining

Cure-in-place pipe (CIPP) sewer relining is a common, versatile, and cost-effective solution for repairing cracks, holes, and leaks in water and sewer pipes. A fiberglass and epoxy liner is stretched over a hydraulic bladder, which can be inflated in place to press the liner against the sides of the pipe. After the liner is cured with heat, steam, or UV, the bladder can be inflated and removed, leaving a sleeve that effectively stops leaks and patches imperfections in the pipe walls.
