When your sewer lines backs up, the problems pile up, too. You’ve got no usable bathroom until the issue is resolved.
When your sewer lines backs up, the problems pile up, too. You’ve got no usable bathroom until the issue is resolved. You’ve got to schedule repairs and shell out the expense for them. On top of all this, traditional repairs are done by creating a gaping trench through your lawn, driveway and/or garden.
The folks you hire will take care of everything --- except the strip of dirt running through your yard. That’ll be there for the length of time it takes for grass to take root and grow. And if your sewer line fails in the middle of winter, that won’t be until spring.
Now, practically speaking, this is more of an inconvenience than it is a tragedy, but the point is, its avoidable.
The trenchless fix
The modern approach to sewer line repairs requires little to no excavation. A small point of entry is all that’s needed. Trenchless pipelining involves inserting a new liner into the existing pipe. Even in instances where long stretches of pipe are broken, a fully functioning pipe can be installed using only the existing tunnel. Often, the pipe can be accessed in a spot that’s inconspicuous. And if a clean outfitting isn’t right in the best spot, one can always be installed onto the existing pipe.
Eliminating excavation from the process saves you a mess and an eyesore. It also streamlines the process. Trenchless repairs can be done same day, and in most cases much less than a full work day is required. That means you’ll have a usable bathroom within a day of the pipe failure. And the speedy process is more cost effective anyways. No heavy equipment. Less time on the clock. Less money out of your pocket.
