Your sewer lines are the last thing you think about – until they stop working, that is. A cracked sewer line can be a nightmare for any homeowner. In the past, repairing your sewer line meant that you had to have your entire yard torn apart. This is not only an intrusive and destructive process but also extremely expensive. While a cracked sewer line is still no walk in the park, the repair options are much better than they used to be.
With trenchless technology, technicians can perform repairs through a minimally invasive process that avoids excavation. This method has been around for a while; however, many homeowners are still not aware of this option.
Here are the top 5 benefits of trenchless pipe repair:
1. Takes Less Time
Traditional trench digging and line replacement can take days, if not weeks, to complete. With trenchless technology, repairs can be finished in a single day, sometimes in as little as 6-8 hours. Additionally, you won’t have to spend time making repairs to the damages done to the exterior of your home.
2. Less Expensive
Completing sewer line repairs using trenchless technology is less expensive because there is no need for digging equipment or structural modification (i.e., taking out walls). With far less manual labor involved, there will be fewer technicians used and fewer hours needed.
Digging up a long stretch of your lawn to repair your sewer pipes is highly destructive. Often, plants will need to be relocated or even replaced after trenching is complete. With a trenchless pipe repair, you can avoid disturbing plants and soil around these lines.
4. It Lasts Longer
While traditional methods last for around 10-30 years, the life expectancy of Perma-Liner trenchless pipe lining products is 50+ years.
5. Higher Quality
In addition to a longer life expectancy with less-frequent maintenance, trenchless pipe repairs can improve your septic system’s functionality by increasing flow capacity.
