Sewer problems can create a major disruption in your home. As little as 15 years ago sewer pipe issues involved trenching the lawn, landscaping and sometimes even sidewalks, patios, and the flooring of structures to access the sewer pipe. Fortunately, today’s plumber has modern technology to rely on. In fact, trenchless sewer repair can also typically be provided in a day or less. Contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing licensed plumbers to receive a video pipe inspection, and trenchless sewer repair of your home’s sewer plumbing in Fort Worth.
Trenchless Sewer Repair
Before work begins on your home’s sewer line, it must be examined by a sewer camera. Also called a video pipe inspection, the procedure uses a small, specialized camera that is snaked into the pipe. The camera provides the plumber with a live view, and the ability to locate and identify the problem with your home’s sewer plumbing in Fort Worth.
A trenchless pipe repair often requires digging small access points, and for many homes there may be no digging required at all. If you’re having problems with the sewer line, contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.
Signs of Sewer Pipe Issues
Sewer pipe issues typically develop over time, and often present with drainage problems.
Common signs of sewer pipe problems include:
- Lush, green grass in or near sewer lines
- Water pooling on the lawn
- Poorly flushing toilets
- Sewer back-up
- Gurgling toilets and/or drains

When sewer pipe problems occur, our licensed plumbers offer a fast diagnosis with a video pipe inspection.

With the information the inspection provides, our plumber in Fort Worth is able to identify the cause and the location of the problem, and determine the solution.
The trenchless method saves time and prevents unsightly lawn trenching, and can be used in the following situations:
- When a larger sewer pipe is needed
- Identifies burst, offset, bellied, cracked, crushed, collapsed, deteriorated, or corroded pipe
- Tree root infiltration
- Leaking sewer lines
- Allows the replacement of pipe that is located underneath structures without destruction
How it Works
Trenchless pipe repair uses the process of pipe bursting, which provides new pipe for your home’s sewer plumbing in Fort Worth. A bursting head fragments the existing sewer pipe, pushing the fragments out of the way into the surrounding soil, while pulling new pipe into place for a flawless job. The trenchless method can be used to replace a damaged section of pipe, or to provide the complete replacement of the entire sewer line. Furthermore, the process offers a cost efficient, time effective alternative without destruction.
