Clogged drains aren’t just inconvenient, but they could be a symptom of a bigger problem that can cause extensive property damage and cost thousands of dollars to repair. Most people don’t think about their sewer lines until a problem arises. Sewer lines are like any other part of your plumbing system. They can last for several years but use, wear and tear, and environmental elements like tree roots can create the need for replacement.
When it comes time to make a repair to your sewer, there are two common options, traditional excavation and trenchless sewer replacement techniques.
Repairing your sewer can be a very expensive investment in your home that you probably weren’t planning for. Not to mention the fact that your sewer might be under your landscaping, under that big tree in the front yard, or under your driveway.
Today’s trenchless sewer replacement technologies might be a less invasive option for you to consider. Below are a few benefits of trenchless sewer replacement technologies.
- It preserves your landscaping: Many sewers run under beautiful and expensive landscaping. Digging up the sewer may ruin the yard, leading to costly landscaping repairs. Trenchless repairs require only one or two access holes, which can reduce the potential landscaping damage.
- Avoiding other utilities in your yard: Trenchless repairs can avoid the extra time and expense that it takes to dig around those utilities.
- It’s cost effective: Repairing a sewer with trenchless technologies can be less expensive than traditional excavation, especially considering the cost of replacing landscaping and outdoor features in your yard or driveway.
- Longevity: Repairing sewers with trenchless technologies is just as effective as traditional means. The use of cured-in-place liners and seamless polyethylene piping are approved plumbing standards.
- Better function: Replacing your sewer with a seamless repair can improve the flow capabilities of your sewer, reducing the causes of backups.
- Peace of mind: Trenchless repairs also carry long warranties, so you can have the peace of mind that your sewer will last as long as you own your home.
