A number of problems can cause you to need trenchless sewer replacement in Gaithersburg, MD. The A-1 Trenchless Services team has the advanced equipment and expert training to be able to handle sewer lines that are affected by large blockages, invasive tree roots, severe corrosion, complete line breaks and more.

One of the most common trenchless sewer replacement options is pipe bursting. This type of modern sewer line replacement offers several benefits over traditional trenching replacement methods. Ultimately, your project is finished faster and at less cost. The A-1 Trenchless Services team will evaluate your sewer issues to determine if pipe bursting is the best solution. We provide sewer line replacement in the following locations:


Traditional sewer replacement solutions can take days to complete. The extensive digging is detrimental to your lawn, landscaping, and home flooring. Depending on the depth at which your sewer line is buried, traditional methods may call for heavy machinery, like backhoes, to remove the line.

Trenchless pipe bursting with our Gaithersburg plumbers is a much better solution. When you choose our modern technique, you’ll benefit from:

  • Fewer technicians to complete the job.
  • Most projects completed within one day.
  • No expensive repairs needed on your home flooring or lawn.
  • No heavy machinery.
  • No trenching required, so your landscaping is unharmed.
  • Pinpoint accuracy allows for fewer accidental disruptions to nearby lines.

A-1 Trenchless Services is recognized as the industry leader when it comes to quality sewer replacement with pipe bursting in Gaithersburg, MD. Our process is efficient and leaves you with a new sewer line that lasts for decades.


Some sewer problems can be repaired with drain cleaning or trenchless pipe lining, but for severe issues, a complete trenchless sewer line replacement in Gaithersburg, MD, with pipe bursting is necessary. The pipe bursting process is typically performed in just one day through a three-step process.

Before our technician begins any plumbing solution, a sewer camera inspection will be performed on your system. The technician will insert a high-resolution camera into an existing entry and guide the camera through your pipes. The live video will reveal the pipe’s condition, showing buildup, cracks, breaks, blockages, and more.

Once the technician identifies the beginning and ending spots for the damaged pipe, the process can begin. A bursting head with a replacement pipe is guided into one of the two small entrance holes created by the technician. The bursting head travels through the existing pipe, breaking it into small pieces and pushing the broken pipe material into the surrounding soil. Simultaneously, a new pipe is being laid in the old pipe’s path.

After the new pipe has been laid, a secondary camera inspection is performed to make sure the project was completed successfully. The pipe will last for decades to come and offer optimum flow performance that can be disrupted by old or broken sewer pipes.
