How Trenchless Pipe Replacement Works
If you’ve experienced a burst sewer pipe, root invasion, or debris infiltration, you will need to schedule a pipe replacement. As a homeowner, if you are worried about the possibility of extensive yard damage that could take months to restore, then trenchless pipe replacement may be your solution. What does this service entail? Let’s discuss how trenchless pipe replacement can ensure your plumbing is repaired while protecting your yard from damage.
Trenchless Pipe Replacement Procedure
The broken pipe is flushed out with a hydro-jetter, and any remaining debris is cleared out with a mechanical plumbing snake. Once the sewer line is clear, the new pipe lining is inserted into the sewer. This is all completed with minimal excavating since only a portion of the sewer line needs to be accessed to conduct trenchless pipe repair.
When Shouldn’t You Go Trenchless
There are some instances where trenchless pipe replacement is not an option. For example, if a pipeline is significantly damaged then the only course of action is to dig a trench. However, these instances are rare and can be avoided if you employ a technician to repair any cracks, erosion, or root damage before it gets to that point.
Protect Your Wallet and Yard With Trenchless Pipe Replacement
As we’ve mentioned, using trenchless services helps you avoid major construction and costs associated with digging into your yard. While this type of pipe replacement could cost 30 to 50% more than the traditional digging option, it can still be more cost-effective in the long run. Traditional trenching often forces homeowners to tear up their landscaping, hardscaping, driveways, and other structures, leaving them with a bill for restoration ranging from a few thousand dollars to $20,000 or more.
