No property owner is overjoyed at the prospect of dealing with sewer problems. Broken, leaking or collapsed pipes can be a major headache, not to mention an unexpected expense. Those facing a sewer repair will be happy to learn about trenchless sewer repairs–a minimally invasive procedure that can repair cracked and leaking pipes while saving time and money.
When most people picture sewer repair, they probably imagine a backhoe tearing up their property over several days of work. While traditional sewer repairs do require excavating the entire length of pipe, modern trenchless technologies help property owners get their lives–and yards–back to normal much sooner, and with less damage.
Trenchless repairs give property owners the peace of mind that comes with having a fully functioning sewer system, without having to worry about the hassle and expense of restoring unsightly damage to landscaping and hardscaping.
The thing that makes trenchless plumbing methods so effective is a liquid epoxy resin that creates a brand-new pipe within the damaged one. The plumbing technician will push a line filled with the epoxy into the old pipe, then inflate it, so that the resin thoroughly coats the inside of the pipe. When it finishes curing, the resin becomes a long-lasting new pipe.
The most expensive component of traditional plumbing techniques isn’t the materials, machinery or tools, but the long and difficult hours it takes to restore a broken pipe. By contrast, completing a trenchless repair project typically requires digging only one small access hole. Not only do trenchless plumbing specialists have to use less labor and equipment, but they can also finish the work without tearing up lawns, driveways, patios and foundations. The best part is that plumbers can typically finish a trenchless repair project within one day, which is a far shorter turnaround time than traditional plumbing projects.
Trenchless sewer repair is one of the best investments a property owner can make–not just for the long-term health of their plumbing system, but for the satisfaction that comes with knowing they’re less likely to have to deal with sewer repairs in the future.
