Signs for Needing for Sewer Pipe Lining
Here are the situations when trenchless pipe replacement is the optimal solution
- Deteriorated cast iron pipes
- Root intrusions into pipes
- Split and or cracked pipes
- Large holes in the pipes
- Sections of pipe are missing
Let us look at specific signs for needing sewer pipelining
Toilet flushing issues – when a toilet is not flushing properly or is making new rumbling noises, it signals problems with the sewer line. It could be a clog, cracked line, or decaying sewer pipe.
Unpleasant smells – foul smells of sewer gas indicate that sewer line has backed-up sewer fixtures that emit unpleasant smells.
Slow drains – in a bathtub, shower, and sinks draining slower than they used to. This signals sewer drain failures.
Mice or insects – can infiltrate into home via even a small crack in sewer pipes.
Sinkholes – on landscape signal about plumbing issues. This may cause harm to property.
Increased water bill – may be a sign of leakages in underground pipelines.
You do not need to tolerate foul sewer smells or half-flushed toilets even one more day. Our experienced technicians will get your plumbing issues solved right away.

Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Replacement Technology
Until recent years, water pipe or sewer line repair and replacement would likely involve yard, landscaping, driveway, and street being torn up to allow access to damaged pipes. This involved digging of unsightly trenches and extensive cleanup after the project is complete.
Thanks to advancements in plumbing technology, Allstate Service Group offers trenchless pipe and sewer repair and replacement in Las Vegas and beyond.
Main benefits of trenchless technology include:
- Less destructive, no property damage compared to the traditional method
- Higher quality replacement materials allowing increased water flow
- Deduced timing of repairs and replacement
- Higher quality repairs and replacement
- Longer-lasting solutions and life expectancy
- Significant cost savings
Trenchless Piping Solutions
Trenchless pipe replacement employs one of two methods: pipelining or pipe bursting. With pipelining, a new pipe liner of high-quality material (known as “cured in place” piping CIPP) is set within existing pipelines. Conversely, with pipe bursting, new pipe liners are set in place while simultaneously bursting the old, broken pipes. Let us detail each solution.
Whether it be a partial or full pipe replacement, your pipeline can be repaired with relining epoxy solution. The epoxy solution is pulled through the existing pipe and air blown in to inflate the solution to fill the area of the existing pipe. It is then allowed to harden, becoming as durable and functional like a brand new pipe.
If the existing pipe is beyond repair, a specialized pipe bursting technology is used. The powerful and fast-moving rotor blade is inserted, which destroys the existing pipe and seamlessly lays through a new pipe. This results in a new replacement pipe without destructive digging.
Our qualified technicians will accurately diagnose problems with existing pipes or sewer lines suggest the optimal trenchless pipe lining solution. If you notice signs of a leak, call (702) 518-4720 to schedule site inspection for trenchless pipe repair or replacement works in Las Vegas and surrounding communities.
How Trenchless Sewer Replacement Works
CIPP procedure is performed in the following steps:
- Video Camera Inspection – The fiber-optic camera penetrates through the sewer line and inspects damaged segments. This helps determine the optimal solution.
- Sewer Pipes Cleaning – pipes are cleaned of blockages, cleared of debris and dirt, etc. Descaling routine then frees up the pipe of mineral buildup. Powerful hydro jetting will clear blockages and restore the pipe diameter to its original size.
- Liner installation – new pipes are installed from the access point. This is how the trenchless method is different from the destructive method of traditional sewer line repairs. The soft tube is inserted along the length and inflated.
Next, the epoxy resin within the new pipe is “cured”, effectively making it solid hard, replacing the inner lining of the problematic pipe. The resin is mixed and poured into a liner, which is inserted into the pipe being replaced. Inside the liner is a balloon that inflates and holds the liner in place and allows it to cure. The balloon is then removed, and the new pipe is ready for service.
The new inner pipe liner is a new stand-alone pipe. It is strong enough to go under load-bearing footers, roads, driveways, etc. The second video inspection ensures the new pipes are properly installed.
