Traditional sewer replacements require an extensive amount of digging, time, and money. It can cause a great deal of frustration for you as a homeowner. As such, people have starter looking for easier ways to repair their sewage pipes. Here are a few of the reasons individuals have started going trenchless.
1: No Digging or Destruction Involved
Even with extensive drain cleaning practices, it’s not uncommon for your home to face a plumbing disaster. When your sewer system gives out on you, it can require a whole crew of diggers and plumbers to tear up your lawn, walls, and even your carpeting. In many cases this can damage the value of your home and incur a great deal of repair costs. Luckily, trenchless sewer replacements don’t require landscaping or irrigation. The process involves filling your pipes with a resin that re-lines the pipe with a hardening resin. Beyond one or two holes in your yard, there is no need for any additional destruction. This keeps the interior and exterior of your home free from the digging and destruction of a traditional sewer repair job.
2: Cost Effective
Repairing your sewage system often comes down to how much it will cost. Luckily, trenchless sewer replacements are often financially beneficial in both the short-term as well as the long-term. Trenchless options are actually more affordable than the traditional alternative. This is because they do not require excessive digging. Depending on how the piping is laid out in your home, crews may have to dig up holes in the neighboring road. Because this is public land, it can require excessive labor and repair charges to tear up. Trenchless options don’t incur these costs because the process doesn’t call for major digging or destruction. For those few instances where trenchless replacements might be more expensive than the traditional alternatives, you may still want to consider paying the extra cost. The process is much more reliable, and in the long-term your pipes will be structurally sound and less prone to future disasters.
3: Prevents Root Intrusion & Leaks
One of the biggest concerns with sewer systems is that roots will intrude upon the aging pipes. This can create major problems with leaks and the overall integrity of the system. With trenchless sewer replacements, the expanding resin technology eliminates the possibility of root intrusion by sealing up all cracks and gaps. In most cases where there are cracks, you will find that sewage or rainwater is seeping out below your property. This can damage the structural elements of your home. By committing to a trenchless system you can avoid these issues for quite some time.
