Have you been putting up with constant sewer line issues because you don’t want to imagine the mess of a traditional sewer line repair? Are you worried about the damage to your lawn and landscape? While these concerns are valid, it is crucial to understand that the longer you wait to have a damaged sewer line repaired, the more potential there is for a hazardous raw sewage leak or back-up in your home. In addition, you should know that there is another option called trenchless sewer line repair that is far less invasive and damaging to your property.
What Is Trenchless Sewer Line Repair?
Two innovative processes allow our plumber to replace your damaged sewer line without digging a massive trench across your property. The first is called bursting. It uses a fiberglass cone to shatter the old sewer line and pull a new one in its place. The second process uses a pipe liner coated in epoxy to create a new single-piece sewer line inside the old damaged pipe. Once the epoxy cures, the pipe is ready for use.
The Benefits Of Trenchless Sewer Line Techniques
The benefit that delights most homeowners is the lack of a huge trench in their yard. The trenchless process significantly reduces the damage to your lawn, landscape, and any hard surfaces like patios or your driveway. And when completed by a qualified licensed plumber, these repairs are as reliable as any other type of sewer line repair or replacement. In fact, the epoxy-coated liner is rated to last for up to 100 years, making it far most long-lasting than a traditional sewer pipe replacement.
Trenchless sewer line repairs are also much more cost-effective than other repair or replacement options. Digging up an entire sewer line can involve many hours of labor. And after the repair is completed, backfilling the trench and compacting the fill properly also requires many hours of labor. Eliminating all of this labor substantially reduces the cost of your sewer line repair.
Trenchless Sewer Pipe Liners
One of the fantastic benefits of this innovative technique is that the liner can be installed in all or only a part of your existing sewer line. The process involves digging a small hole at the end of the sewer line to insert the liner. The epoxy-coated liner is inserted into the pipe with a deflated bladder inside it. A small camera is used to monitor the location of the liner for a small repair or a complete replacement. Once the liner is in place, the bladder is inflated to force the liner into contact with the existing sewer line.
The bladder remains inflated for about a day to allow the epoxy to cure. The liner and the old pipe become fused together to form a single, seamless sewer line. When the bladder is deflated and removed, the new sewer line is ready for use and can be expected to last far longer than any traditional sewer line pipe.
