Atlanta Trenchless Pipe and Sewer Replacement
Trenchless pipe replacement offers homeowners, businessowners and anyone in need of sewer repair services a long list of benefits. Here are some of the key points:
- Use of HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) pipe with a 100 service life on the pipe.
- Seamless fused connections, joints as strong as the actual pipe, easily connects to PVC or cast iron pipe without the need for special coupling.
- Can replace storm drains and sewer lateral lines.
- Durable pipe capable of being impacted, impenetrable by the largest roots, completely water tight, capable of a working pressure – 150PSI (Sewer pressure is at nearly 0 psi).
- Flexible installation allows maneuvering through offsets in the existing line up to 45 degrees.
- Ability to upsize lines if necessary: Example: A school is adding 10 toilets and wants to upgrade from a 4″ to a 6″ sewer line, pipe bursting can be used to accomplish this scope of work.
- Broken fittings which are otherwise inaccessible can be replaced with continuous piece of new pipe, versus a liner system which would require excavation of that location.
- Can be done with only 2 access points, we can avoid cutting down trees, destroying landscaping, draining decorative pools, replacing pipe in areas are too small for necessary excavation equipment. Lines can be pulled under roads, driveways and sidewalks with no interruption to traffic above the work area.
- Proven technology world wide, market tested in nearly every US market approved and preferred on all pipe replacement projects.
Why Choose Us For Your Trenchless Pipe Replacement?
We execute Careful camera inspection to search for any “wye” connections to the line we are replacing to insure that all active pipe lines are connected to the new line. Camera inspect to determine starting and stopping points of pipe replacement and the extent of any problems.
We make sure that pre-existing problems such as severe bellies caused by sinkholes in yards is not in your new sewer line. We will determine whether it should be routed around the sinkhole or if the sinkhole is an old trash pit, that the remaining organic material is removed and the hole properly filled with compressed soil or gravel.
All of our jobs have a state licensed plumber onsite monitoring your job. Not just any licensed plumber but one with specific knowledge of underground work and the trenchless pipe process and experienced digging safe trenches. Our underground plumbers carry utility locating instruments to further pinpoint marked utilities located by the Georgia Utility Protection Center or any possible unmarked or mismarked utilities. Not every licensed plumber is good at every aspect of plumbing: Plumbers come with specialities, just because the state license says they can install a sewer line does not mean they have ever done it before or have done anything more watched it done.
HDPE Pipe is Tested and Approved
Piping used for water and sewer applications must be tested for safety and reliability before the product can be distributed.

HDPE plays a vital part in the water, sewer and natural gas distribution systems of the world, automobile parts and everyday plastic products are made of HDPE. Before becoming the leading product in plumbing infrastructure and a preferred product in pipe rehabilitation for residential and commercial customers, HDPE pipe was tested by and approved by the United States primary pipe testing organizations:
National Sanitation Foundation (NSF): Since 1994, the NSF has certified products and written standards that protect food, water, air, and consumer goods. They are an independent, not-for-profit organization. HDPE meets and exceeds requirements of NSF-61 and is approved and certified by the NSF.
American National Standard Institute (ANSI): A private, non-profit organization (501(c)3) that administers and coordinates the U.S. voluntary standardization and conformity assessment system.
American Water Works Association (AWWA): An international non-profit scientific and educational society dedicated to the improvement of drinking water quality and supply.
International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO): Serves the Plumbing and mechanical communities around the world. This includes the development of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC).
