Repairing water and sewer pipes can be an extensive and time-consuming costly process. Your landscape and yard are ripped up while the plumbing company cuts a trench to remove and replace broken or damaged piping. The process can take days or weeks to complete. The end result is new plumbing but a wrecked yard and an empty wallet. Trenchless sewer and water repair change the game for homeowners.
Because the plumbing company uses high-tech technology to assess damaged pipes through a camera, there isn’t the need to dig a trench in the yard. Trenchless pipe repair starts with identifying points to access, using a camera to find the damage and placing a liner sleeve into the old pipe. The epoxy-coated sleeve pumps up to fill the damaged pipe creating a new pipe within the old. The seamless process takes significantly less time than the traditional trench method.
The traditional method of sewer and water pipe replacement requires the contractor to obtain permits and certifications from the local municipality. These often come with costs. The local government requires proper disposal of all hazardous waste coming out of the sewer. In addition, once the new pipe system is put in, you likely have to repair the landscape ruined by excavation. All those costs add up making trenchless repair a cheaper alternative since it doesn’t require waste disposal or permits and your yard isn’t torn up.
By far one of the best benefits of using the trenchless method is the lack of hassle. Spending less money and time focusing on a headache of a problem can relieve the stress surrounding the whole issue. You can take a single day off of work to complete the project at a lower cost.
Sewer and water pipe repair are frustrating experiences for any homeowner. Don’t fret, consider the advantages of the higher tech trenchless repair option.
