The Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Repair
One of the headaches of homeowners is having a broken sewer line. In the traditional sewer repair, your yard had to be dug up so that the sewer pipes could be exposed and removed with new pipes replacing them. Today, it is still not a pleasant thing to have a broken sewer line, but you can much better repair options that you used to have. Trenchless sewer repair are performed by plumbers today. The method of replacing broken pipes today are a lot different than before and it is trenchless so you don’t dig up anything.
There are a few ways in doing trenchless sewer repair. Pipe lIning and pipe bursting are the two methods being used today. Pipe lining, also known as cured in place pipe is one of the methods of sewer pipe repair. Plumbers install the lining in the damaged pipe. In this method, you dig a small access hole for the pipe liner to be inserted into the broken pipe. This pipe liner is inflated once it is pulled into the old, broken pipe. When the inflated pipe inserted into the old, broken pipe, is cured, it hardens and cools, and becomes the new pipe.
The pipe bursting method needs two access holes to be dug on two sides of the lateral sewer line. The new sewer pipe is pulled through the old, damaged sewer pipe and the old pipe is burst outward.
These two methods are both superior to the traditional replacement method for sewer lines. Below are some of the benefits of trenchless sewer repair.
