Trenchless pipe lining in Spokane, WA

Trenchless pipe lining in Spokane, WA is just one of several solutions we offer at Vietzke Trenchless. If your water lines are too damaged, however, we offer another specialization of ours. When it is time to replace your galvanized or copper water lines, you may benefit from pipe pulling. Here's what you need to know about this option.

What Is Pipe Pulling?

Pipe pulling is one option we offer when dealing with a damaged water line. While our team is known for providing trenchless sewer replacement in Spokane, we also offer quality solutions that focus more on just sewer pipes. With pipe pulling, this is done by using the space that already exists where an older or damaged water line needs to be removed. It's similar in concept to pipe bursting, except the existing pipe isn't broken up. The result is a new pipe that's inserted in a way that doesn't require further excavation.

How Does It Work?

With this water line rehabilitation technique, the new pipe is attached to the old one. It is then pulled into the ground as the existing pipe is pulled out. The same space that was there for the existing pipe is used during the pipe pulling process. This method is usually better for smaller diameter pipes.

When Should You Consider Pipe Pulling?

At Vietzke Trenchless, we recommend trenchless pipe repair in Spokane, WA to address issues that affect your sewer pipes. This offers plenty of benefits such as efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Our pipe pulling method can also provide many benefits not just for your water line, however. This is likely to be the case if the existing pipe has collapsed in certain areas, or if it's unstable. 

Pipe pulling is:

  • non-invasive in that additional excavation isn't needed
  • less labor-intensive, so it can be done faster
  • cost-effective since there's no need for a big excavation
  • sure to leave you with an entirely new water pipe
