In the past, repairing or replacing sewer lines required digging a huge trench around the pipes and making a pretty big mess of the yard where the pipes need work. It was an invasive process and unpleasant project for everyone involved, but thanks to modern technology, that is no longer the case. Trenchless pipe repair and replacement makes it easy to diagnose the problem and repair or replace necessary pipes without extensive digging in your yard or property.
There are plenty of benefits that come with trenchless pipe repair, including the fact that it involves less hassle and mess than the former methods. Trenchless repair jobs also cost less than traditional repairs because there is less labor involved with removing and replacing dirt. Other benefits include:
-Quicker diagnosis with video cameras used to identify problems in pipes
-Exact location identification so that only one or two small access points are needed
-Fewer people coming and going on the job
-Quicker repair and replacement of old, broken, or corroded pipes
Trenchless pipe repair involves using different techniques to repair pipes without damage to the property, depending on the work that needs to be done. The first method is called pipe bursting and involves pulling a new pipe through the older, damaged pipe. Two small access holes are dug on each side of the pipe, and then the new pipe is pulled through. This will cause the old pipe to fracture outward, at which point it can be removed, and the new pipe can be installed. This method can still be used if a line has collapsed, provided there is enough room to pull a cable through.
Pipe lining is another option for replacing pipes without excessive digging. This involves putting a liner, or cured-in-place pipe inside the damaged pipe. Liners are made of flexible resin, which is inserted into the old pipe and then inflated to fit the interior dimensions. The resin will cure and create a new interior pipe within the existing damaged pipe so that you don’t have to remove it. This is going to reduce the diameter of your pipe by about 1/4 of an inch, but that won’t affect the ability to remove waste from home. This method may not be an option if there are joints in the line or if there has been a collapse.
