Typically, when you need a sewer line repaired, the sewer line needs to be exposed in order to make the repair. This can involve cutting through a concrete slab or tearing up your yard. Accessing the sewer line can be one of the most laborious and expensive parts of the repair. Fortunately, there is now an alternative to regular sewer repair called trenchless sewer repair. Read on to learn everything you need to know about trenchless sewer repair, including the benefits.
What is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Trenchless sewer repair involves inserting a tube down your sewer line. This tube is then able to use pressurized water to remove clogs and debris, including stubborn tree roots. Once the pipe is clean, another tube is injected into the sewer line that sprays a resin around your sewer pipe, which helps seal leaks and repair cracks. This process is done without having to dig trenches to access the sewer line, as the line is fed through your drains, instead.
What Are the Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Repair?
The major benefit associated with trenchless sewer repair is the cost. Trenchless sewer repair is significantly cheaper than traditional sewer repair. Digging trenches and accessing the sewer line is a laborious process that increases the cost of the repair. By cutting that process out, you can have your sewer lines repaired faster and cheaper. You also won't have your yard or driveway torn up.
Is Trenchless Sewer Repair Right for You?
Trenchless sewer repair can be used if you have clogs or cracks in your sewer line. However, if your sewer line is collapsed or has major damage, this type of repair may not be ideal. In these cases, the line may need to be dug up, and a new line may need to be installed. Before the process begins, we will use a sewer line camera to assess the condition of your pipes and determine if trenchless repair is viable for your sewer line.
