Metro Earthworks offers our Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Technology to Minneapolis, St. Paul and its Surrounding Suburbs. Our cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) technology is one the trenchless rehabilitation methods we use to repair existing sewer pipelines in the Twin Cities. This technology is a jointless, seamless, pipe-within-a-pipe and we have the capability to rehabilitate pipes ranging in diameter from 3” to 10”. As one of the most widely used rehabilitation methods CIPP has application in water, sewer, gas, and chemical pipelines. As a trenchless technology, CIPP does not require excavation to rehabilitate a pipeline that is either leaking or structurally unsound. Depending upon design considerations an excavation may be made, but the liner is often installed through a manhole or other existing access point. CIPP has a smooth interior and no joints. While CIPP can repair a pipe with bends, special design considerations must be taken into account to prevent wrinkling and stretching. CIPP can effectively reduce infiltration and leaks in pipeline systems without digging.
Trenchless technology is a type of subsurface construction work that requires few trenches or no continuous trenches. For some homes in the Twin Cities Metro Area there is not a whole lot of space between your home and your neighbor’s. With our Trenchless Repair Technology, there’s little to no digging in our process, making for a cost-effective and less disruptive method than traditional “dig and replace” pipe repair methods. The liner can be inserted using water or air pressure. The pressure required for insertion is generated using air pressure. Hot water or steam is used to cure the resin and form a tight-fitting, jointless and corrosion-resistant replacement pipe.

Metro Earthworks uses a resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester, fiberglass cloth or a number of other materials suitable for resin impregnation. The tube is then inserted or pulled into a damaged pipe. It is usually done from the upstream access point (manhole or excavation). It is possible to insert the liner upstream (e.g. from the downstream access point) but this carries greater risk to the pipe and property. Metro Earthworks can diagnose your unique sewer problem and find a series of options and solution that will be the most effective for your particularneeds.Other Minneapolis plumbing companies may tell you that they need to dig up your yard in order to repair your sewer system, we offer many solutions, in some cases don’t require the use of troublesome, expensive machinery.
