Under certain circumstances, a trenchless solution just won’t do the job. That’s when we provide you with the least invasive open trench solution.

An open trench repair involves digging along the existing sewer or water pipe. Once exposed, depending on the situation, either an entire new pipe will be laid down in place of the old pipe, or the defective portion of the line is replaced or repaired.  

Open Trench Spot Repair

If the pipe is in good condition but there is a flaw in one small area of the line only, such as a sag/ slump, partial collapse, cracked pipe, or broken connection caused by improper bedding or improper installation by the previous contractor, then we will be happy to provide you with an alternative fix such as a spot repair. Spot repairs consist of digging over the faulty area of the pipe and repairing only that section, rather than replacing the entire service.

Trenchless Point Repair

In some circumstances, a point repair may be a cost-effective and more practical alternative for pipe repair. A trenchless point repair utilizes Cured-In-Place-Pipe or CIPP technology to provide an environmentally friendly rehabilitation for sewer and storm pipes of small to large diameters.

A point repair essentially creates a new pipe within an existing pipe to:

  • Repair an infiltration or exfiltration
  • Provide structural restoration
  • Improve performance and flow quality

A point repair creates a protective wall or lining around the damaged pipe at only the compromised areas of the pipe. This process is relatively quick and, in most cases, can be completely in a few hours with minimal line disruption or even no disruption to services at all.

A point repair is the preferred method for a variety of reasons including it is affordable, effective and long-lasting, easy to install, and no digging is required! Call TerraBurst for a video inspection of the line to determine the condition of the damaged pipe and location. At this time our experienced technicians will be able to determine if a point repair is the recommended solution to sewer pipe issues.
