A trenchless sewer line repair is one of the best ways to replace a sewer pipe because it causes the least amount of disruption and damage. However, most homeowners don’t know much about this and how they work. Honest plumbing companies recommend this service over traditional sewer replacement because of the following:
- Lower Overall Cost – Traditional sewer repair and replacement methods are very complicated and time-consuming. Plumbers have to invest many hours of hard labor into the job and this increases the cost and time for the repair. Traditional repairs or replacements can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars to $25,000.
That’s just the cost of the repair and replacement. The restoration and landscaping work will only add to your costs. A trenchless sewer line repair doesn’t require as much effort and doesn’t cause as much disruption. Plumbers only need to dig two small trenches on either side of the sewer line and this can be easily covered and refinished at minimal cost.
- Quick-trenchless sewer line repairs can be done within a day’s time while traditional repairs can easily take up to a week. As mentioned earlier, traditional repairs are a long, complicated process. Plumbers have to dig large trenches to uncover the entire damaged section of the sewer.
Sometimes they can make mistakes and dig in the wrong place, which will increase the time taken to complete the repair. With the trenchless method, the plumbers just need to cut a small section of the existing sewer, run a steel cable through it, and drag the new pipe into place. This process is very quick and efficient. It also has a lower margin for error.
- Hassle-free Clean-Up-Trenchless sewer line repair doesn’t require a lot of cleanup. The plumbers just need to fill the two small trenches they dig away from your lawn and gardens. You won’t need to hire a landscaper to refinish the lawn or garden as they will still be relatively intact.
Traditional sewer repair methods can completely ruin your landscaping. You’ll have to fill in large trenches, reinstall the irrigation systems, grade the land, add grass and plants, and install walkways and paths once again. The cleanup after a trenchless repair isn’t as complicated.
