Many people don’t know what trenchless plumbing is. This article will help you understand the various types of repairs that are possible and how to find a good plumber for your needs.

Trenchless plumbing is a type of plumbing that has become increasingly popular in recent years.

This form of plumbing, also known as “no-dig” or “pipe bursting” can save homeowners from the hassle and mess caused by traditional repairs – but many people are still unaware of this new technology!

If you need sewer pipe repairs, then you should consider a team of expert plumbers in Atlanta, Georgia who are trained in using trenchless technologies. There are several different types of trenchless plumbing repairs. Here’s a list of them: Pipe Bursting Method, Cured-in-place Pipe (CIPP).

What is pipe bursting? It’s baiting an old sewer pipe to cause it to burst and then installing a new one in its place. The process of bursting the pipe is done with an expander head, pulling rods, a pulling machine, a retaining device, and a hydraulic power pack.

Basically, the bursting head is pulled through the old pipe from inside until it bursts open. As it’s being pulled through the old pipe, it’s pulling the new pipe behind it.

Pipe bursting is often the most cost-effective solution to replace a sewer line.

Are there any common problems with the Pipe Bursting Method?

An abundance of head movement coming from the percussive bursts could cause significant ground movement, possibly damaging nearby structures.

There’s also the risk of ground heave occurring with shallow pipes.

If you’re in need of plumbing services, it’s important that you find an experienced plumber who can help with trenchless plumbing. Not all methods are created equal when it comes to repairing your sewer pipe. At Zippy Plumber we specialize in trenchless technology for sewer line repairs in Atlanta GA – but there are many different types of procedures available on the market today, so be sure

What is Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) method?

Cured-in-place pipe, also known as CIPP or cured-in-place pipe lining, is a technique for installing new pipes inside of existing pipes. It’s also called cured-in-place pipe rehabilitation. A liner with an epoxy coating is used to line the inner surface of the old sewer system and then when it cures the pressure from outside pushes it against the inner walls. The curing process lasts about 3 hours but will continue for up to 24 hours after installation before finally being ready.

Are there any common problems with the Cured-In-Place Method?

Partial coverage is a common issue. Partial coverage is when the pipe lining isn’t able to extend all the way around a curve in the line. The epoxy coating may not have been applied long enough for it to fully set up and adhere to the pipes or there may be some kind of blockage preventing it from extending past that point.

The only two trenchless sewer repair methods that don’t involve digging are Pipe Bursting Method and Cured-in-Place Pipelining (CIPP) Method.

The last option is the old-school method of digging up your yard and creating a big mess. This method is called the Dig-and-Replace Method.


With the Pipe Bursting Method, small pipes are pushed into the existing pipe and inflated. With CIPP Method, a fabric tube is pulled through the old pipe and an epoxy mixture is applied as it moves forward. The CIPP process usually takes less than 24 hours before finally being ready for use.

"Reasonably Priced"

Very prompt, friendly, and professional services. Matt fixed my tub and toilet and got them to drain properly! He was very thorough, explained what the problem was and what he needed to do, worked very quickly and cleaned up all the mess after he finished leaving my bathroom looking better than it did before he started! Very reasonably priced too! I will definitely be using Zippy Plumber in the future and recommend them to friends and family!
- Magda S.

"Very Nice"

I contacted Zippy Plumber to come by my house to investigate whether I had a leak (my water bill had skyrocketed but I did not notice any signs of a leak). The plumber David was very nice and knowledgeable. He was thorough in his investigation and even gave me some tips for the future. He was able to narrow down the issue to the irrigation sprinklers in the yard and luckily I did not have a leak inside the house. If I do in the future, I now have someone I can rely on! Definitely recommend!

"Lovely To Work With"

We called Zippy Plumber on a Sunday and they were fast to respond and at our house within a few hours. Sean and Tyler were particularly lovely to work with and made sure to show us the issue, what they planned to do, and even taught us some things. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone and will them again for any plumbing needs!
- Sarah S.

"Great, honest company!"

We used Matt and his team to replace our hot water heater that is in the attic. They did a great job and completed the work all in one day and it was Father’s Day weekend! We appreciated their help! We also contacted them for help with a clogged kitchen drain and Matt spent 20+ minutes talking us through different methods to help unclog the drain before having a plumber come out and incur a cost that might have been unnecessary. Great, honest company!
- Abby S.

"Efficient & Professional"

I needed to replace my disposal and started looking for a local plumber last night. After reading multiple five star reviews for Zippy Plumber I decided to give them a call today. I spoke with Matt and he was able to schedule an appointment for me later that evening. Matt arrived within the appointment window and had all the supplies necessary for the repair in his truck, which saved me a trip to Home Depot! Matt was very efficient and professional. He explained the problem, went over my options for replacing the disposal, and then showed me tips to take care of my new disposal. I would definitely recommend Zippy Plumber to a friend and will call them the next time I have a plumbing issue!
- Caroline D.

"Very Pleased"

Matt and his team came out quickly, gave me a fair price, and started on the job, and cleaned up afterward. Did a great job on replacing my water main pipe, and also gave me a warranty. I highly recommend them to everyone. Friendly, professional, and easy to talk to, also a great listener to your concern that I have going on with your plumbing. And they took care of the job in a timely manner. And I usually DO NOT give reviews at all. But I was very pleased with the work they did in my yard to repair my plumbing system. Last they put my yard back together where you couldn't tell they had been out there.
- Deborah B.

"Very Skilled"

We had a water main line leak. He fixed it and helped deal with the insurance to make things work smoothly. He also came by for free to check out a minor leak issue that I was having. Matt is honest, professional, and very skilled. I would recommend him for any major plumbing project you might have.
- Shawn T.

"Very Tidy"

I cannot recommend Zippy Plumber enough! David was very professional, careful, and thorough. He walked us through everything that he did which was extremely beneficial as a first-time homeowner. He was very tidy and left the bathroom spotless. I won’t hesitate to call them again should any issues arise.
- Peter B.

"Very High Quality"

I had a problem with a busted outdoor pipe and a nonfunctioning garbage disposal. I called Zippy, and within hours Matt and his team came to help. Matt was very knowledgeable and took the appropriate time to explain his recommendations. He and his team completed the work the same day, and the work product appears to be of very high quality. I would recommend Matt and the Zippy team.

"You cannot go wrong!"

Matt Firtha is the licensed, master plumber who owns Zippy Plumbing. He just left my home (on a Saturday!) after repairing our sewer line and installing an outside release valve to prevent backup in our home. Matt is an experienced, thorough, affordable, and dedicated, young man. I highly recommend Matt and Zippy Plumbing. You cannot go wrong! I would rate him 100 stars if this site allowed it.
- David T.


Matt and his awesome crew repaired a hole I had in my main drain. They were responsive in providing a quote (which was a great price!), they were very flexible in working with my schedule, and they completed the repair as described. Matt kept me up to date throughout the entire process, which I really appreciated. I cannot recommend Zippy Plumber enough!
- Christopher P.

"Highly Recommend"

We had a serious clog that caused the sewer to back up into our store. I called Matt and he was there within 30 minutes. Thanks to his high-tech equipment he was able to extract the object thus saving us tens of thousands of dollars and needing to chop up the floor to get to the problem! I highly recommend this company.
- Gerry P.

"Very Honest"

Matt was on time and very honest with me about the needed repairs. I would highly recommend using Zippy for any plumbing services needed.
- Matthew R.


Matt was great! My husband and I needed assistance right away due to a busted pipe. I told him the issue, and he was over within 30 minutes. He was pleasant and answered any questions that we had. Customer service was a 10/10!
- Ivy P.

"Friendly & Professional"

Matt was fantastic! He was able to fix my cold tub faucet in no time flat. He was friendly, professional, and helpful. I'll absolutely call them again whenever I have plumbing issue!
- Taylor H.

"Fantastic Job"

Matt and his team did a fantastic job repairing our main water line. Our house is set back about 200’ from the street with lots of clay and a small creek in between. Suffice to say, it was a varsity job that needed a real pro to carefully bore under our driveway without breaking up the concrete. Matt put together a careful plan, letting me know what he was doing every step of the way. He did it professionally and at a reasonable price. I’d highly recommend Zippy Plumber.
- Gabe S.

"Quality Service"

These folks came out super promptly on Christmas when we had a pipe burst after a big cold snap! Great, quality service and they were so sweet with my young kids. During this crazy time, I'm happy they were the ones who responded because they made such a horrendous experience as easy as possible.
- Holly M.

"100 Stars!"

Matt is the best! He got back to me in minutes and fit us in same day:) I can’t recommend him enough to anyone needing a plumber. Such a nice guy, knows what he’s doing, is affordable, and is super professional. 100 stars!
- Abby F.

"Highly Recommend"

I hired Matt (Zippy Plumber) to fix my leaking main water line a few months ago. He replaced it using a trenchless repair method. I am very happy with Matt's service, including his price, professionalism, and transparency. He also recently visited my house to help identify the source of an unrelated plumbing problem. I highly recommend Zippy Plumber.
- Steven M.

"Simply the best."

Matt is hands down the best plumber in Atlanta. He’s done work for us multiple times. He’s extremely skilled, knowledgeable, honest, and he doesn’t stop until the job is done perfectly. He follows up with you as well and is always there when you need him. I would recommend him for any major plumbing project you’re considering. Simply the best.
