Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

In the past there was basically only one way to completely replace piping: dig up the entire pipe, remove it, and install a new one.  This process is expensive and extremely time consuming, leaving homeowners to deal with unsanitary and uncomfortable conditions for days or even weeks.  Luckily, there have been recent innovations on the pipe replacement front.  Trenchless sewer line replacement is a cutting edge technique for replacing broken or corroded pipes, without digging up the entire pipe.

Trenchless sewer line replacement involves feeding a soft, malleable pipe into the existing pipeline.  This can be done from one relatively small hole in your yard.  The new pipe is then filled with air, expands to fit the old pipe, and hardens.  The new pipe is only slightly smaller than the old pipe and it is much stronger.  Since the pipe installed using the trenchless sewer line technique has no seams or joints, it will hold up against invasive tree roots and ground shifting.  Furthermore, the entire process will be completed in about 8 hours…that’s only one day of work!  Consequently, labor costs are significantly reduced and the raw materials used in the process are cheaper as well.

The best part about trenchless sewer line replacement is that there is no need to re-landscape your yard.  In traditional sewer line replacement, the homeowners yard is often completely destroyed leaving them to pay hundreds for its repair.  All that needs to be fixed in trenchless sewer line replacement is one relatively small hole.  Moreover, experts maintain that Cured in Place Pipe (the type of pipe used in this process) will last 50 years or longer.  Trenchless sewer line replacement is a simple, long-term solution to broken or corroded pipes at an affordable cost.

So the next time a pipe bursts and you are faced with a decision to go with traditional methods or trenchless sewer line replacement, try this new method out and enjoy a quick, cost-efficient solution to your plumbing problems.  After all, who wants to wait a week enduring awful smells and loud drilling, when you could get the entire process completed in a measly 8 hours.
