It’s almost inevitable – cast iron sewer pipes have a lifespan of anywhere from 30 to 60 years, which means if you live in an older home or a new home connected to existing sewer lines, you could be looking at a repair in your future. When you’re looking for a company to perform those repairs, however, be aware that new, trenchless technologies in sewer repair can offer significant advantages over the old methods.
1. Your Trees and Landscaping Remain Safe
You’ve probably seen large sewer trenches in other yards and thought about the headache of replacing grass, shrubbery, flower beds, and other landscaping after the sewer work is done. In particular, trees are often sensitive to excessive digging near their roots, even if the roots themselves are not damaged. With trenchless repair, such digging is not necessary, saving your trees and other landscaping from stress.
2. You Can Avoid Costly Permits and Restoration
When you have a sewer emergency, the last thing you want to do is research and acquire a permit so your plumber can begin digging. Most trenchless repairs do not require a permit, so the hassle and expense are no longer a factor. In addition, traditional sewer repair often requires contacting your local government to reroute traffic, as well as replacing any landscaping destroyed in the process. Trenchless repair is minimally invasive and does not require rerouting or harm to your landscape.
3. You’ll Be Back Up and Running Much Sooner
Traditional sewer repairs can take anywhere from a few days to a week or more. In contrast, we can often accomplish a trenchless repair in a matter of hours, minimizing the disruption to your daily life and allowing you to get back to normal much sooner.
Sewer repair isn’t something anyone looks forward to but choosing trenchless sewer repair can minimize the damage to your yard, avoid the additional hassle of permits, and get your life back to normal much faster.
