The life of a sewer depends on various factors that affect its integrity, but if your sewer is 30 years old, it may need replacing. Even if your home is new, its plumbing might be connected to an older pipe. Sewer pipe replacement is a traditional method that can be disruptive to your home, as it involves major excavation resulting in the damage of lawns, trees, concrete surfaces, driveways, garages, etc. Not only that, it can also burn a large hole in your pocket. Fortunately, there are new methods of sewer replacement that require no digging, and are easy on the wallet.
Trench less sewer repair methods are relatively new in the market, having been introduced 10 to 15 years ago. A lot of people are unaware of the existence of this option. This is why you should consider this modern, cheaper method over the traditional, expensive one.
It is Cost-effective:
Since trench less sewer repair involves far less manual labor, there will be fewer technicians used and fewer hours needed. Additionally, you get the same repair service, just faster and less expensive than repairs done using trenches. This method uses seamless pipe-lining material that can survive for longer against the wear-and-tear caused by nature.
It is Cleaner:
Digging up sewer lines can ruin beautiful yards and cost thousands of dollars to recreate them after you have spent thousands of dollars getting the sewer fixed. Trenchless repair does not require more than one or two small holes to be dug to reach the sewer lines. These holes are usually at the entrance and exit of the pipes, considerably reducing the damage to your landscaping.
It is Environment-friendly:
Digging up pipes can wreak havoc on the environment, killing plants, disrupting lawns, and creating a general mess of the place. The “no-dig” technology uses a set of methods, equipment, and techniques to replace pipes without the need for excessive digging. The quality of your home will be maintained throughout the process of replacement, and there will be much less of a mess.
It is Faster:
When replacing a sewer, no large trench digging means a much faster process for you. No one likes to see a repair crew in front of their home for several days on end. It is always a relief to get the work done as soon as it can be, and this also means that you will be able to use your pipes as soon as they are complete.
It Provides a Greater Quality:
Trench less pipe repairs use cure-in-place liners or full replacements may use seamless Polyethylene piping, both of which are a better quality piping material. This new technology gives a joint-free piping that prevents free root evasions, cracks, and off-set pipes that are found in older pipe materials. It will be safe from corrosion and rusting in all kinds of weather.
When it comes to choosing between traditional methods and advanced technology, you should try to opt for more modern techniques as they are simpler, more advantageous, and less obsolete.
