Roto-Rooter Uses Trenchless Pipe To Save Trees
The trenchless system was adapted from the gas industry to enter the ground via a small access hole. Using the broken sewer line as a guide, hydraulic machinery pulls full-sized replacement pipe through the old path while breaking up the damaged pipe. The small entrance and exit holes can be quickly refilled. The high-density polyethylene pipe is fused without joints to eliminate root intrusion or leaking, and has a longer life expectancy than other pipe material.
