Classic Pipe Repair

Comprehensive Excavation

In cases where extensive repairs or replacements are necessary, traditional methods may be preferred. Complete excavation allows for thorough access to the waterline, ensuring a comprehensive solution.

Ideal for Larger Projects

Traditional repairs are well-suited for larger-scale projects where a complete overhaul or replacement of the waterline is required. This method provides a robust solution for significant plumbing challenges.

Proven Durability

Traditional repairs often involve the use of durable materials such as copper or PVC pipes, ensuring a long-lasting solution that withstands the test of time.

Precision in Complex Cases

In cases where extensive repairs or replacements are necessary, traditional methods may be preferred.

Trenchless Waterline Repairs

Minimal Disruption

Trenchless repairs involve minimal digging, sparing your landscape and saving you from the inconvenience of extensive excavation. Keep your property intact while we address your waterline issues with precision.

Faster Completion

Trenchless repairs often require less time compared to traditional methods. Enjoy the convenience of a quicker resolution, allowing you to return to your regular routine sooner.


With reduced labor and restoration costs, trenchless repairs can be a cost-effective solution for many waterline issues. Experience efficient repairs without breaking the bank.

Environmentally Friendly

Trenchless methods are environmentally conscious, minimizing soil disturbance and preserving your property's aesthetics. Choose a green solution without compromising on effectiveness.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whenever possible, we utilize existing drains and clean-out ports to insert new liners and pipe curing equipment. If we can’t find a suitable drain or port, it may be necessary to open the pipe at a connection point or access it by other means.

The lighting units we use generally aren’t activated until they’re placed inside the pipe, so you shouldn’t notice anything unusual in other areas of your home. The process also doesn’t generate excess heat, steam, or environmental contaminants.

The amount of time needed for UV curing is dependent on the length and configuration of the pipe. A short section of pipe may only need a few minutes to cure fully while longer pipes could take a few hours. Once the process is completed, the sewer line can be returned to service almost immediately.

The first step of every trenchless pipe repair in San Antonio, TX, involves sending a camera through the line to obtain accurate, real-time information about the interior conditions. This preliminary inspection usually reveals the location of any cracks, separations, tree roots, and other issues. We generally combine one of these tech-based camera evaluations with a complete inspection of the surrounding area to gather as much data as possible. We then use all the data that we obtain to recommend a repair strategy and prepare an accurate estimate for the work.

Our personnel will be very respectful of your home and property while we’re onsite. The trenchless repair process generally results in little to no debris or spilled water, but you can count on us to completely clean up any unused supplies or other materials before we leave your location.

Big shout out to Pete and the Murray team. Professional staff, fair price, and excellent work installing a French drain. Pete went above and beyond by frequently communicating with me about the project and ensured the work his team did actually solved the challenging drainage problem that had been causing flooding in my home. It would have been easy for the team to just “do the work” but instead they showed real professionalism and cared about getting it right. Thank you Pete and team. I’ll be recommending Murray Plumbing to my friends and family.

If I could leave these guys I would. Murray plumbing God bless your company. These guys are true to their word. The price to unclog you drain quoted is the price you pay. Not a diagnostic fee. These guys worked at my 95 yr old aunts house very hard till they achieved a good job. Not asking for a penny more. You have the Cruz, Montez, and Montoya family as loyal, life long customers. Plus everyone we can recommend. D. Garza
