Your Guide to Trenchless Sewer Line Repair
Trenchless sewer line repair has significantly reduced the inconvenience and expense of repairing underground sewer lines. Unfortunately, sewer lines
can become corroded, cracked or broken, which can cause serious issues around your property. In the past, the only solution to a broken underground pipe was to tear up your yard, lawn or driveway, and you would also be faced with costly and lengthy repairs. Luckily, trenchless line repair techniques have been developed, which allows homeowners to enjoy a more efficient and less disruptive repair.
Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Basics
Essentially, a trenchless sewer line repair allows for a damaged line to be repaired without the need to tear up your lawn. The sewer pipe can be efficiently repaired without a need for disrupting your landscaping or driveway. Specialist plumbers use advanced techniques to ensure that there is minimal damage to your yard during the repair. This is the primary benefit of a trenchless repair as the methodology ensures that your patio, lawn, and landscaping remains intact. This is far more efficient and less intrusive than traditional methods, which means that it saves both time and money. Typically, trenchless repairs can be completed in less than one day, which dramatically reduces labor costs. Additionally, repairs are permanent and meet all industry standards.
Is a Trenchless Sewer Line Repair the Right Choice for Your Home?
If you suspect that you have a damaged underground pipe, you may wonder if a trenchless repair is the right option for your home. Trenchless repair techniques can be used to solve a difficult sewer line issue. A trenchless repair can be used to address underground pipe issues, burst and blocked pipes, which have been damaged by household debris or tree roots. It can also be beneficial in cases where pipes have been improperly installed, which has caused constant leaks and sewer backups, or pipes have been damaged by ground movement or persistent thawing and freezing.
Trenchless repair techniques can also be used for pipe relining. This allows damaged sections of sewer line to be reinforced without the need to remove a broken pipe. A hardened material is introduced into the pipe to coat the interior of the existing pipe using a small hole at both ends of the piping run. This lining effectively creates a new pipe inside the broken one, which can resolve many underlying issues and it can last for decades. Some lining materials can last over fifty years, providing a cost effective plumbing solution.
Trenchless sewer line repair offers an effective and efficient solution to many repair issues. Unfortunately, it is not suited to all circumstances, so it is best to speak to a specialist plumbing professional
. This will enable you to have access to all the facts needed to make an informed decision about whether a trenchless repair is the solution best suited to your specific requirements.
