Trenchless Pipe Repair vs Cast Iron Pipe Replacement
Trenchless pipe repair and traditional pipe replacement are two distinct methods used to address issues with underground pipes, such as water supply lines, sewer pipes, or drainage systems. Trenchless pipe repair can save you a serious amount of money over traditional pipe replacement. There are a number of reasons why this is the case.
Trenchless pipe repair offers a less invasive, faster, and cost-effective alternative to traditional pipe replacement. This makes it a preferred choice for many situations. It minimizes disruption to the environment and surrounding infrastructure. This alone makes it a valuable option for maintaining and rehabilitating underground pipes, for most property owners.

What if my problem is the cast iron sewer line to the municipal sewer line?
The iron pipe that runs from your home to the municipal sewer line is called the “lateral line”. If your home is experiencing this issue, it may be the responsibility of your municipaliy to repair. However, this repair used to mean digging up the old pipe all the way to your home. This means removing the old iron plumbing or damaged pipe, then putting in new pipe. That causes property damage along the way.
We now offer solutions for all municipalities to repair this using a form of trenchless sewer repair, called a “Lateral Monolithic Repair Program”, or Lateral MRP. Find out more about our trenchless pipe technology (including CIPP) and pipe lining solutions in the links below.
