Sewer Line Replacement Needed? 4 Reasons to Go Trenchless
If a sink hole has developed in your yard or the lawn is giving off an unpleasant odor, you might need to replace the sewer line. These signs are not always present when a replacement is needed, but they both indicate a problem. Replacing the sewer line is a major job, but a new alternative known as trenchless sewer line replacement offers a number of benefits.
Because of the health risks associated with a damaged sewer line, consider a trenchless sewer line replacement sooner rather than later. This effective technology has been used for more than two decades. Here are four benefits that await you when you choose trenchless.
A sewer line replacement is not something you budget for. Luckily, trenchless techniques are significantly cheaper than traditional plumbing work, which is the primary reason more homeowners are considering this method. Reduced downtime There’s simply no convenient time to have your sewer line out of service. Fortunately, trenchless sewer line replacement gets your system up and running again sooner so you’re inconvenienced for as short of a time as possible.
The need to dig up your lawn, break concrete and otherwise disrupt the landscape on your property is part of why traditional sewer line replacement is so expensive. As you can guess by its name, trenchless techniques don’t involve digging into the ground. Therefore, there’s no surface disruption and no additional landscaping costs associated with the replacement.
Lower chance of future problems Your old sewer line is replaced with a sturdy pipe made of strong epoxy resins. This material doesn’t rust and stands up against intruding roots. Expect your sewer system to flow smoothly for decades to come after the trenchless sewer line replacement is complete. When it comes to cost effectiveness, speed and longevity, there’s simply no comparison to trenchless techniques.
