Sewer line excavation and repair

Open-top excavating is the most cost-effective sewer repair option when there are utility lines are close to the sewer pipes or if the pipe is too damaged for trenchless sewer line repair. The Ihn Company is equipped to handle any sewer line repair, whether it is trenchless or an excavation project. We provide free estimates for all sewer line work.


Types of sewer line excavation

  • External excavation—the pipes are dug up and exposed. The initial excavation takes the longest time in this project but is necessary for tricky projects.
  • Interior access excavation—a jackhammer is used to dig a hole directly down to the source of the leak. This method is best when there is only one leak.
  • Re-routing—part of the pipeline needs to be repaired. One type of this is cured-in-place piping, which is when pipelining is put through existing pipework and then pressure is applied so the pipeline expands and fills the existing pipe. This is a fast and cost-effective form of sewer line excavation.
