Trenchless pipe installation or trenchless technologies is relatively new to New England.  Northeast Sewer & Drain has had it for 4-5 years and have had great success with it. IMG_4700

We did a job recently in Portland Maine that epitomizes why we use it, old growth flower gardens.

This customers street was due to be paved and after a sewer video inspection we noticed that their sewer line was broken and it had to be replaced.  The problem was that the sewer line ran under the porch and through their front garden, one he and his wife had been working on for 15 years, they did not want to dig it up.

They were excellent candidates for trenchless technology.

This is how it’s done….

and another pit is dug in the street to connect to the main sewer, a section of pipe is removed…..

I am a first time homeowner and needed a new sewer line installed, heart stopping when I had no knowledge of such things. I called northeast sewer everyday for a week with questions and concerns. They televised my line and showed me exactly where the break was (pretty amazing) I could see it on the screen!! Fixed it in one day!!

Justin and Kelly are the owners, and they could not have been better to work with. I had a 120 year old BRICK (yes, brick) sewer line collapse and they diagnosed the problem, involved the city and fixed it for less than I was expecting to pay. I learned that they own and operate their own excavating equipment which means jobs are done more quickly and less expensively than others. I am a raving fan, and have already referred them out.

hired Northeast Sewer to inspect my main line with their sewer camera because our basement kept getting water. We had roots in our line. Northeast removed the roots put us on a yearly maintenance plan and we haven’t had a problem since. Thank you.

I just wanted to compliment your plumber, Justin, who came to our home this evening. He was a professional and absolutely fantastic. He explained everything to us and fixed our problem efficiently and with accuracy. Thank you so much. We will look to you in the future for our sewer and drainage needs.

I’m a widow living on a fixed income, Northeast Sewer & Drain not only charged a reasonable price, but gave me another 10% for being a Senior Citizen, I’ve told all my Senior friends.

I want to thank the 2 gentleman who came last Friday morning and fixed my downstairs’ toilet. They knew what they were doing, not like some so-called professionals. They let you know what was going on. Very pleasant people to have working at your house. If I have a similar problem next time, I’m going to call Northeast Sewer & Drain first!

– Ellen P. 

A great big thank you to Justin and Kelly Dearborn from Northeast Sewer & Drain Service for fixing the plumbing issues we had at our house yesterday.
