During the summer months homeowners want to be lounging poolside or in a lawn chair with a cold drink and a hot plate of food from the grill. After all, this is the time of year when there is still a nice bit of sunshine when you get home from work and you can relax and unwind in the warmth of a beautiful sunset.
No one wants to be sitting on their deck watching heavy equipment dig up their yard or patio because of a water or sewer line rupture. In fact, this is probably every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Thankfully, there is an option for accessing broken sewer and water lines via a trenchless approach.
Essentially, this means that it is not necessary to dig a trench to get to the pipes, but rather just a few access holes. Here are some situations where a trenchless approach is best used:
- When water or sewer pipes run underground and go underneath the house, landscaping, patio, or deck. Any type of landscaping or outdoor home improvement that you would like to see preserved can be using a trenchless approach.
- When sewer lines have burst because of tree roots or household debris built up in the line.
- When sewer lines have repeated problems or back-ups because they’ve been installed improperly.
- When water pipes are broken or cracked due to shifting soil or house settling
- When pipes are repeatedly damaged due to the ground freezing and thawing over and over again
- When you need a bigger pipe installed to accommodate a bigger household with more water needs
To avoid a summer project like repairing your entire yard and landscaping, consider a trenchless approach to your water or sewer line repair job.
