When your sewer requires maintenance, waiting can cause even more problems. The stress resulting from a tree’s expanding roots can cause severe damage to pipelines beneath them. Plus, as pipes age, cracks and blockages start appearing, causing them to deteriorate. These issues can lead to drains getting clogged, which results in foundations and basements getting flooded or sinkholes. Breaks or blockages in a sewer line must be dealt with as soon as possible.
Traditional methods of repairing such damaged sewer lines require digging up lawns or damaging walkways and driveways, creating a mess and headaches for the homeowner. With traditional methods, an individual had to dig up and repair each section of a pipe that required attention. It proved to be a strenuous as well as chaotic process, with experts spending several hours reburying the pipelines after repair or replacement. Repairing or completing a sewer line also required usage of several heavy as well as expensive equipment and numerous technicians. That was before trenchless technology became available.
Trenchless sewer line repair offers a faster, eco-friendly and less expensive method for repairing and replacing sewer lines. Check out the benefits:
Faster and More Convenient
Using traditional digging methods require an average time span of 2 to 5 days. Time is an important factor, and the trenchless technology has been immensely successful in getting the job done within a much quicker time frame. Some trenchless sewer line repairs are even completed within a single day. Less time taken also means the inconveniences associated with any repairs are short-lived. Customers spend less time inconvenienced with having their water turned off and can return to their daily routine sooner.
Lower Overall Plumbing Cost
Trenchless technology to repair or replace sewer lines is less expensive since it does not require structural modification (e.g. taking out walls). Expensive digging equipment is not necessary because it only requires 2 small holes to be dug. Also, with trenchless technology, you will not require landscaping, which means less digging and minimized damage to the surroundings. The requirement of manual labor lessens significantly, decreasing the overall cost. Plus, Minimal digging also means reduced cleaning costs. Money saved on restoration will easily outweigh any higher cost required for trenchless repair.
Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Is Less Intrusive
The traditional procedure first locates the leak and has the yard trenched. Next, the bad section of the pipe is replaced, and the trench is subsequently refilled. It’s an extensive and weary task. The trenchless method just digs a hole at either end of a faulty pipe, busts it out and lays the new pipe seamlessly. In many instances, the entire job can be completed in a day.
Eco-Friendly Alternative Plumbing Solution
Trenchless technology utilizes specialized equipment and unique techniques to repair sewer lines without causing environmental damage. Unlike traditional digging operations, this method eliminates the requirement to dig up large areas, so it does not disrupt the land or ecosystem around a home and prevents infiltration of groundwater.
Different Applications of Sewer Line Repair
Trenchless sewer line repair offers different methods for both residential and commercial applications. Its pipe bursting mechanism replaces pipes beyond repair by utilizing a bursting head while laying the pipe. For large properties and cities, manhole to manhole lining method is implemented. Perma-liner is used to patch up any damage within the pipe. This is basically effective when only sectional repair is necessary, and replacement of whole pipes are impractical.
Improved Sewer Line Flow
Trenchless sewer line repair technology uses a special type of flexible pipe known as CIPP (cured in place pipe). It is infused with a resin that sets it up effectively, creating a stable structure. The CIPP offers a unique seamless replacement section, which lasts longer than most average sewer pipes. The seamless pipe also offers fewer obstructions than clay, PVC, or iron sewer pipes, developing a better flow of water and waste through the line.
