Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

“A MapleService trenchless sewer line replacement can make a new sewer line install invisible.  Well, almost invisible.  A trenchless sewer line replacement requires a small excavation near the city connection, and a small excavation up near the home, normally at a clean-out.  The clean-out is a typical sewer entry point used for normal cleaning and maintenance, usually located just next to the house.  From the clean-out, a cable is inserted and ran to the small excavation at the street, attached to a hydraulic “jack” .  Back at the clean-out, the new pipe is connected to the “fed-through cable”.  Then, the hydraulic jack pulls the cable through and, thus, pulls through the new pipe all the way to the jack location.  This procedure is also known as a trenchless “pull”.  The new pipe guarantees no root intrusion.  MapleService offers trenchless sewer line replacement in Humboldt County and Sonoma County.”
