You can save quite a bit of both time and money by using the trenchless sewer repair method vs. the traditional dig and repair / replace method.
Trenchless sewer line replacement is an excellent option to avoid the disruption and the higher costs that accompany traditional sewer repair which involves digging long trenches in the yard, possibly through driveways and other structures, disrupting landscape, etc.
The cost between traditional pipe repair and the trenchless method may be the same, but the difference comes in the hidden costs that are found in traditional pipe repair.
The additional costs can include…
- excavation of old pipes
- replacement of landscaping
- disruption to businesses (on commercial projects)
How Effective Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
The effectiveness of the Trenchless process is recognized by manufacturers, contractors, plumbers, engineering firms and more. In fact, an entire day each year has been dedicated to acknowledge the major accomplishments of this technology.
The savings of course depend on the extent of the work that has to be done.
One of the best uses of Trenchless work is if your pipes or sewer lines run under a driveway or concrete sidewalk or patio. The trenchless system saves you the time and money it would take to drill (and destroy) your driveway or concrete slab and then replace it after the sewer lines have been repaired.
- 100 year service life on the HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) pipes
- Costs less than traditional sewer repair process
- Saves your yard from being dug up and torn up
- Usually takes 1 day from start to finish
- An easy way to replace pipes beneath driveways, patios, etc
With all it’s advantages, we do have to acknowledge that there are times when it’s simply not possible to use the trenchless system – there are occasions where the pipe is so irreversibly damaged and corroded that there is no choice but to dig it up entirely and replace them.
