The Low Down On Trenchless Sewer Repair

Blog

A clogged sewer line is never welcome news. You often become aware of the problem only when drains begin to slow or raw sewage begins to back up into your home. Fortunately, you have options when it comes to repair. Trenchless repair can be the least invasive and quickest way to solve your sewer line clog.

Benefits of Trenchless Repair

Traditional sewer line repair involves digging a large trench down to the sewer line. The old line is then removed and a new line is installed. This method is time consuming and quite damaging to your landscape. Not only will you have to pay for the digging of the trench and the line repair, but you will also have to spend cash repairing your lawn and landscaping after the work is done. Trenchless repair is much less invasive since there is no need to dig up your yard. Not only is it more cost effective not to dig the trench in the first place, but you also save money and time since you won't need to fix your landscaping.

Trenchless Repair Method

Sewer lines typically experience issues either from clogs or leaks. Tree roots are a common cause of clogs, while leaks occur as the pipe begins to break down. Repair begins with removing any clogs in the line, either via a rooter or by using pressurized water to blow out the clog. Once the line is clear, the leaks are repaired. This may be done via a resin that is sprayed into the line to seal small leaks, or a new liner pipe may be fed through the old pipe, effectively replacing the sewer line. The method used depends on the extent of damage to the sewer line.

When To Choose Trenchless

Trenchless sewer line repair isn't suitable for all types of damage. You can opt for this method if you have a major clog or leak. It isn't suitable if the old sewer line has begun to collapse, since it won't be possible to insert a new liner or blow a clog out of the collapsed line. Typically, a camera is first inserted into the line to determine the extent of the damage so you can make an informed decision on whether trenchless repair is the right choice.

Trenchless sewer repair can be the best option in many cases, for your wallet, yard, and time constraints. Contact a sewer repair service in your area to learn more.

Exploring The Importance of Plumbing Pipes

Hi everyone, my name is Linda Strickerts. I am going to talk about plumbing pipes problems, repairs and upgrades on this site. Although the pipes hide beneath the floors and behind the walls, they are an integral part of the home. Without plumbing pipes, we would still be heading out to the outhouse to do our business. Washing clothes, dishes and ourselves would also not be possible without carrying buckets of water in and out of the home. I hope to explore the different ways plumbing pipes changed our lives for the better. I will talk about keeping the pipes in great shape as well. Thanks.
