What are the Costs Involved with Trenchless Pipe Replacement?

Dealing with a damaged or failed sewer pipe is no easy task. It is a messy issue and creates a variety of problems until you have it repaired or replaced. The good news is, with new trenchless technologies, you may not have to spend thousands of dollars to have your sewer lines replaced.

With trenchless pipe replacement as an alternative to traditional pipe replacement, there is no need to disrupt your yard, driveway or general daily life if a large section of sewer pipe fails. Trenchless pipe replacement can be done in a few ways including pipe lining, which is far less invasive than traditional methods.

Cost of Traditional Pipe Replacement vs. Trenchless Pipe Replacement

Sewer line replacements range in cost depending on the size of the pipe used and how far your property is from the main sewer line for both trenchless repair and traditional pipe replacements. A trenchless pipe replacement can range between $6,000 – $12,000 whereas a traditional dig-and-replace repairs can cost anywhere from $4,000 – $13,000.

When it comes to the cost for traditional dig-and-replace repairs, you also need to factor in the cost of replacing driveways and walkways, landscaping, lawns, and the cost of labor for each of these jobs, which can lead to traditional pipe repair costing more than trenchless pipe repair.

Trenchless Pipe Replacement

When it comes to trenchless pipe repair there are a variety of methods to choose from including:

Pipe lining: The cost of relining a damaged sewer pipe runs at about $80 – $250 per foot, averaging roughly $160 per foot. In the average home, trenchless sewer pipe replacement costs roughly $6,000 -$12,000. The cost is determined by the length and diameter of the replacement line that is needed.

This method is known as, “cured-in-place pipe,” or “pull-in place pipe,” uses a flexible tube coated with a 2-part epoxy resin. This coated liner is blown into the damaged pipe, so the resin can harden, creating a new jointless line in the existing pipe. The pull-in-place lining method will cost an average of $3,000 – $4,000 for pipes less than 50 feet in length.

The cost of this method varies depending on the location, depth, and length of the pipe that needs to be repaired or replaced.
