Damage to the main sewer line can be a costly problem. In addition to getting the repair, you have to contend with restoring your lawn once the repair is finished. If the trench passed underneath your driveway, then you’ll have to install new concrete in addition to new sod. Fortunately, there is another way to make repairs to your main sewer line. In fact, many homeowners would say it’s a better way; it’s trenchless sewer repair.


What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?

Trenchless sewer repair is the process of fixing your damaged sewer line without digging a trench. At face value, a trenchless sewer repair may seem impossible, but it is, and many homeowners prefer it.


The Benefits of Getting a Trenchless Sewer Repair

When it comes to getting a trenchless sewer repair, many homeowners prefer it because of the benefits. For one, without the need to dig a trench from the road to your home, you’ll save time getting the repair. Without the need to rent or employ heavy-duty digging equipment, you may save on the overall cost of getting a trenchless sewer repair, compared to the regular sewer line repair.


Another benefit to getting a trenchless sewer repair is the fact that you won’t have to restore your lawn once the repair is finished. As stated earlier, a sewer repair doesn’t simply affect the sewer. With a traditional sewer repair, you’ll have to dig a trench to access the damaged section of the line and make the repair. The costs of restoring your lawn to its original glory following the repair can be thousands of dollars, in excess of the fees charged by your contractor.


Types of Trenchless Sewer Repair

If you are considering getting a trenchless sewer repair, then there are two types you should consider.


The pipe liner is a simple solution to problems with your sewer main. To get an idea of what a pipeline is, just imagine a pipe inside a pipe. A liner is placed inside your sewer main. Once everything is in place, the liner is inflated and becomes a pipe inside your existing piping. The process is simple and can be completed in a day, generally.


The other option for fixing your sewer main without trenches is lining your pipe with a new pipe. At Steve’s Plumbing, this technique requires us to remove the old pipe as we go. We do this by digging holes strategically so that we can access the old piping. Although a little more involved, this process is just as effective as the process of laying a pipe liner.
