3 Reasons to Choose a Trenchless Sewer Repair
Homeowners do not think about their sewer lines until something goes wrong either inside or outside of the home. Sewer lines should be checked every 40 years, so any problems can be caught at an early stage and repaired. If there are repairs needed, the new trenchless sewer repair may be the easiest and cheapest way to get the repairs done.
Trenchless lines will not require the plumbers to dig up the whole yard, as they would have to do for traditional line repairs. Repairs can be done by pipe bursting, which is when the professional plumber uses hydraulic machines to pull new piping through the old. The new piping will break up the old piping in the ground without destroying anything on top of the yard. The new piping will be the same size as the old piping so homeowners do not have to worry about having a slowing exit out of their sewer lines. If the sewer lines are running under a nice patio or expensive landscaping, breaking up the existing landscaping will not have to be done, so it will save the homeowner a lot of money in rebuilding repairs.
Many homeowners do not realize that they are responsible for the piping all the way to the main line. Sometimes that main line is in the middle of the street and the homeowner would need to pay for any damage done to public sidewalks or the street. With the trenchless system, sidewalks and the street would not have to be broken up to repair the sewer lines. When plumbers have to break up any form of concrete, the cost of the repair goes up significantly. That expense can be cut almost in half by using the trenchless sewer system for the repairs.
Professional plumbers will also be using a better material for the new sewer line. Instead of using PVC, clay or iron, which has a tendency to be damaged by tree roots, the new lines will be made of polyethylene. The new line will serve the family home well for fifty years or more. For any sewer problems, professional plumbers will save the homeowner stress, time and money, without digging up their whole yard.
