What Exactly is Trenchless Sewer Line Repair?
The first thing is to understand what trenchless sewer line repair is. As the name implies, it involves repairing sewer lines without the need to dig up the whole line. There are a few different types of trenchless sewer line repair.
First, there is pipe bursting. Once again, the name is fairly self-explanatory. It means to break and expand the pipe – or, in short, to burst it. The pipe is then replaced with high-density polyethylene pipes. First, we pull a head through the pipes to burst them. Second, we follow with laying pipe that replaces the broken pipe.
Another option is slip lining. This does not replace pipes but instead acts as a pipe repair. This involves installing liners through the current lines – sort of like a pipe within a pipe. A third option is curing in place pipe, which is similar, but instead of using an epoxy lining, we use a resin-saturated liner that can expand with the pipe. Once it does, we cure it with heat.
Advantages of Trenchless Sewer Line Repair
Now that you know what the options are, you might be wondering what the main advantages are of this option. First, it does much less damage compared to digging up the entire yard. With traditional repair, your landscaping might be damaged, and you will need to replant grass where a trench was dug through your yard.
Second, trenchless options are much faster than digging and replacing your pipes. If you want to minimize inconvenience and get the problem taken care of quickly, then trenchless is the way to go. Third, this is much more affordable than digging up and replacing your pipes. Why? Because it takes less time, we do not have to deal with the cost of disposing of pipes, and it requires fewer resources.
Finally, many clients appreciate that this is a very eco-friendly option. Instead of throwing out pipes, we are able to re-use them in top condition in some cases.
