What’s one of the worst home disasters that can befall your lawn? Sewer line problems and repair. When homeowners with a green thumb find out their sewer line has failed, it’s easy to understand their panic. Apart from the cost and hassle of having your lawn torn to pieces, it’s downright painful to see those hours of mowing, planting, weeding, and lawn work go down the drain.
Thankfully, Schneller & Knochelmann Plumbing, Heating & Air brings a better solution to the Cincinnati area: Trenchless Sewer Line Repair. Find out how this new technology saves homeowners time, money, and heartache in the event of a sewer line disaster.
What’s the Downside of Traditional Repair?
Conventional sewer line repair and replacement requires digging down to the line to access it. After the line has been repaired or replaced, returning the yard to its original state can be an expensive and time-consuming proposition for the homeowner.
Depending on the placement of landscaping on the property, the homeowner may be faced with tasks such as reseeding the lawn, replanting flowers, bushes, and trees. If there are hardscaping elements in the path of the sewer line, homeowners might also deal with repairing any damage to irrigation systems, raised beds, driveways, and walkways. Sometimes homeowners are even required to pay to repair city sidewalks, all to get their home’s plumbing back in working order.

The Trenchless Alternative
Trenchless sewer relining offers an alternative option. What’s the benefit of trenchless sewer relining? Simply put: minimal digging!
- The relining process is fast, efficient, and does not require extensive excavation. The process starts with a thorough inspection and cleaning of the existing, damaged sewer line.
- Next, a single access hole is dug. A specialized machine then inserts a custom sized, resin-coated liner sleeve through the entire length of the damaged pipe. A balloon-like inflatable “bladder” presses the liner up against the interior walls of the existing pipe, sealing all cracks.
- Finally, when the resin has cured, the “bladder” is removed, and the newly lined pipe offers the strength and functionality of a brand new sewer line without the destruction and excavation that typical replacement and repair require.
The new, seamless sewer line will last for decades, resisting tree roots, leaks, and corrosion. Not only is your lawn safe for now, but for years to come!
