Trenchless Sewage Pipe Replacement
Unlike traditional drainage pipe replacement, where you’ll need to dig out the old pipe and then replace it with a new one, trenchless sewer pipe replacement aims to limit the extra labor and potential damage that can occur during replacement. There are two methods of trenchless replacements; pipe bursting and pipe lining. Any of the above methods will have the experts digging access holes in the streets and areas where the sewer lines enter your home.

In pipelining, the trenches are not removed; instead, a sleeve will be inserted into the existing pipe. This epoxy sleeve is then inflated and allowed to create a new pipe from the old one.
Advantages of Trenchless Sewer Pipe Replacements
You’re bound to enjoy several advantages when you opt for this type of sewer replacement. Here are some of them:
Reducing Potential Property Damage
Traditional sewer pipe replacements usually have a plumbing crew digging the sewer area to remove and replace the pipes, which has a risk factor of damaging the property. Conversely, trenchless replacement doesn’t require digging, which in some ways reduces potential property damage.
You’ll find minimal hole damage around the access entry point since the crew incorporates tarps to minimize damage. This preserves the dug-up grass for replanting later and also prevents making a lot of mess.
The process is affordable compared to traditional sewer pipe replacements since there’s no need for intense manual labor. However, the cost of this service depends on the complexity of a particular project. In some cases, you’ll find that its costs can be higher than the traditional method. Even so, the process saves you time and effort and ensures you restore your property to the right standards.
Shorter Completion Date
Traditional pipe replacement services take about a week or two for experts to complete the project. Trenchless projects, on the other hand, take a day or two for the job complete, as digging up the two access holes and running new pipes or building one using epoxy takes a few hours.
Replacing a sewer pipe is a big project; the crew working on the project will have to close the streets to make way for equipment or protect the workers working on the project. In addition to this, sewer services will become unavailable to you.
This means no water waste will run down the sewer lines. It’s not an easy way of living for days on end. Trenchless pipe replacements take a few hours to one day to complete, which means fewer inconveniences for most parts.
Longer Lasting Results
Replacing your sewer pipes using trenchless methods provides long-lasting results. Today, many sewer pipes are made from durable materials compared to the past. You’re, therefore, assured of durable sewer lines that last 50 years and more.
As awesome as replacing your old sewer pipes with trenchless method sounds, it’s not always the right choice. If the situation you’re dealing with has something to do with collapsed pipes, burst pipes causing damage to the surrounding area, or pipes installed incorrectly, then this method will not be a suitable option.
Overall, professional plumbing technicians can help you choose the right method depending on your circumstances.
