If you think traffic jams and backups on the expressway are aggravating, then you haven’t experienced a backed-up sewer or water line!
Lots of things can block, restrict or damage water and sewer lines. Shifting soil or freezing ground can crack or collapse pipes. A build-up of grease, paper, waste and foreign objects can prohibit proper flow. And the passage of time can cause pipe corrosion or breaks in pipe seals.
A sewer line break used to mean major digging that meant a trench was dug across your lawn. It was a messy, destructive process that could take days to complete. Now an easier way to repair damaged sewer lines – trenchless sewer line repair. Trenchless sewer line repair is fast, minimally disruptive to your yard, and offers a permanent solution to the most common sewer line problems.The advantages of trenchless sewer line replacement are obvious. First and foremost, it's quicker and less expensive. Using traditional dig and back-fill methods, it usually takes two days to replace a sewer line. Plus there is the added expense of replanting the yard, replacing any sections of fence, repairing driveways or sidewalks, etc. With the trenchless system, none of these issues apply. Because the replacement process requires only two access holes to be dug, the crew can be in and out usually in about eight hours, and your lawn remains intact; no replanting expense. The patio, driveway, sidewalks, fence, cable and gas lines, etc. remain unscathed.
The cost is comparable if not less than the cost of traditional sewer line replacements. First, a video camera is used to inspect the sewer line and identify the location and cause of the damage. Cracks, tree root intrusions, splits and ruptures are the most common sewer line damage. Next, a lateral pipe lining machine inserts a permanent epoxy lining material to fill all the holes and gaps in the pipe. The result is a tough, permanent and water-tight seal that is even stronger than the existing pipe.
