Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Replacement?
Trenchless sewer pipe replacement helps avoid digging up your yard, driveway and other structures when replacing your sewer line. With traditional trenching it costs thousands in manual labor to dig up the entire line.
Types of Trenchless Sewer Replacements?
A pipe liner is a flexible tube coated with resin that is blown or pulled into the damaged pipe and inflated. The resin then hardens, creating a pipe within a pipe that is jointless and corrosion resistant. Lining will reduce the diameter of the lateral pipe – which connects the home to the main sewer line – by about a quarter of an inch, but won’t affect your capacity to remove waste from your home. Pipe lining typically involves digging just one access hole. If the pipe is collapsed pipe bursting must be done.
Pipe bursting involves pulling a new pipe through a damaged one, while simultaneously fracturing the old pipe outward. This typically requires digging access holes on either side of the lateral pipe.
