How Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Work?
In the past, sewer pipe repair involved the complex, messy, and arduous task of excavating your yard in order to gain access to and fix the pipe. But while the old methods are still used in some cases today, trenchless repair has become the preferred method when possible.
The service aims to repair sewer line damage without the use of digging by instead using an epoxy “cured-in-place” tube and liner. This tube can be pulled into the existing damaged sewer line through the use of specially designed tools, and once in place, the sleeve will cure into a strong, singular tube within the old sewer line, effectively creating a “new” sewer line.
The Advantages & Drawbacks of Trenchless Sewer Repair
You may be wondering why trenchless repair is the preferred method these days, but if you check out the benefits of using this method the “why” becomes quite clear! Trenchless sewer line repair is:
- Faster than other methods. Once the pipe in question has been surveyed and cleaned out, a trenchless repair can often be completed in a single day—a fraction of the time it takes to perform a traditional repair.
- Safer for your landscape. In a trenchless repair process, the contractor only needs to access the highest point in the pipe, often meaning very little or no excavation will be needed at all.
- Much more cost-efficient. Sewer line repairs can cost thousands upon thousands of dollars, and in many cases, no portion will be covered by homeowners insurance (unless you specifically sought this type of coverage in your policy), but a trenchless repair can cut costs by half, or often even more.
- Capable of providing a stronger pipe. Because the resulting sleeve cures into a single length of pipe, the pipe lacks any joints, which increases the overall strength of the final product.
The problems with trenchless sewer repair are thankfully quite few, and the long major factor for consideration lies in the limits of the technology. In most scenarios trenchless repair offers an excellent solution, but some forms of damage—such as extensive pipe collapse—are simply too extensive for a trenchless repair to be effective, as the process utilizes the existing pipe in the repair.
It’s also worth noting that on a bill, trenchless repair has a higher cost than traditional repairs. However, this is deceptive, as trenchless repair requires less labor and avoids the cost of rehabilitating and reconstructing your landscape, saving immensely on costs overall.
