WHAT IS ‘TRENCHLESS’ PIPE REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT?
Trenchless pipe replacement uses video inspection to pinpoint the exact source and location of the problem in the line, which means the fix is done faster and more effectively.
Pipe bursting or pipe pulling method: Two access holes are dug on either side of the section of sewer pipe that needs to be replaced (which is located by video inspection.) Next, a new pipe is pulled through the old one using a cable. This breaks up the damaged existing pipe and pushes it aside without needing to dig it up. The new pipe is then connected to your main plumbing system.
Once it’s all said and done, a second video inspection is performed to ensure that the new pipe is properly installed and ready to handle waste.
BENEFITS OF TRENCHLESS PIPE REPLACEMENT AND REPAIR OVER TRADITIONAL METHODS
- Affordable, fast, less destructive way to repair and replace broken underground pipes
- Does not require digging up your whole yard or driveway
- Trenchless pipe replacement only requires a few small access holes to be dug, keeping your property intact
- Can replace broken pipes by way of a special machine to break apart old pipes while pushing new high-quality pipes in
WHEN WOULD YOU NEED THIS SERVICE?
Trenchless pipe replacement becomes necessary when there is a problem within your sewer line, which is often caused by leaks or breaks within the line. This can happen for a multitude of reasons, but the most common reasons include:
- Ground shifting
- This causes separation and erosion around pipes
- Tree roots also tend to break into your pipes seeking moisture
These unavoidable acts of nature cause damage directly to the pipes, as the ground becomes unable to hold them in their correct place within the system.
When you’re debating between trenchless or old fashioned sewer repair, it’s important to account for both the short and long-term costs. Trenchless methods do tend to cost more upfront, since they demand a specialized skill and state-of-the-art technology. However, it is well worth the price when you consider all the additional work involved with traditional trenching.
- Non-trenchless pipe repair often requires digging long, deep trenches across your yard, which could result in damage to your garden, patio and driveway.
- In extreme cases, you could be saddled with the costs of excavating the street in front of your property and repairing city-owned property.
- The task of restoring your property to its original state could take weeks and cost hundreds or thousands of dollars.
