As technology continues to advance, more efficient ways to do things are being introduced. Sewer repair is no exception to this trend, and trenchless pipe replacement combined with cured in pipe placement is working wonders to preserve landscapes all over America.
The genius of trenchless sewer repair lies in its ability to fix your pipes without digging unsightly holes in your lawn. About 78% of Angie’s List poll respondents said they hadn’t heard of “no dig” repair, but 73% of survey respondents say they’d pay more for sewer pipe replacement if it would preserve their existing landscaping and outdoor features. The benefits of trenchless repair are truly endless, and you’ll be reaping its benefits for years to come.
- Sewer camera inspection. Before your trenchless repair begins, a professional needs to check out your sewer to find out exactly what the problem is. With antiquated services, repairmen would need to dig your lawn up just to discover the problem, then returning to do more damage to your landscape when performing the repair. Trenchless options take these steps out of the equation, and your inspection can be completed in a non-invasive manner.
- Pipe lining. If your sewer inspection reveals that your pipes merely need to be resealed and restrengthened, then pipe lining with cured in pipe placement is your solution. In this case, zero trenching is necessary to install the cured in pipe placement, which is inserted directly into your existing pipes. Basically, the cured in pipe placement functions as a brand new pipe that enables your sewer to function properly again.
- Pipe bursting. Pipe bursting is needed when your pipes need replacing, rather than just being restrengthened. If your sewer is older than 40 years old, there’s a good chance that it needed to be replaced with pipe bursting. With this advanced technique, two access holes are drilled in the landscape, as opposed to an entire trench being dug in the case of antiquated methods. A new pipe “bursts” through your old pipe, forcing fragments of the pipe outward and replacing the pipe. This is the best and only method for pipe replacement that is completely trenchless, which means that those with older homes should strongly consider pipe bursting.
If you’re in need of professional sewer repair and want to protect your beautiful lawn, consider trenchless repair. By preserving your landscape, you’ll save thousands of dollars over time while also obtaining durable pipes for decades to come. It could end up being one of the best investments you ever make.
