Massive clogs in main sewer lines often require complete replacement instead of easy repairs. Many homeowners are intimidated by this repair and don’t know what options are available to them. You can choose between trenchless or traditional sewer line replacement in Hamilton. Both have their pros and cons, which an experienced plumber can explain fully. At Dr. Pipe Drain and Plumbing Services, we can answer any questions you might have regarding these two options. Here’s a brief introduction:

Sewer Line Replacement Options: Traditional vs. Trenchless

1.Trenchless vs. Traditional: Costs Involved

Trenchless replacement cost is a little higher than traditional repairs as it uses more sophisticated technology. Traditional replacements are more affordable outright, but you need to spend more on follow-up landscaping and gardening repairs. When you combine both, these can cost more than what you pay for trenches repairs. Typical trenchless sewer line replacements cost per foot is between $70 to $125 for pipe relining and $60 to $110 for pipe bursting. The combined cost of traditional replacements can go as high as $250 per foot.

2.Trenchless vs. Traditional: Amount of work

Traditional sewer line replacement in Hamilton requires excavating large portions of the ground to access the entire section of damaged/clogged pipe. This means you must hire another vendor for repairing your landscape after replacement is complete. This project is messier and disruptive, which is why many homeowners prefer trenchless replacements.

In trenchless repairs, we only excavate small portions of land on both ends of a damaged area. Once the replacement is done, this area is refilled and finished without too much disruption.

3.Trenchless vs. Traditional: Effectiveness

Both of these methods are effective. Once you have done a sewer line replacement in Hamilton, the pipe will last for nearly 50 years so all initial investment is worth it. Trenchless repair is well-worth your money because it is done in a matter of hours without ruining your landscape. Sometimes plumbers will recommend traditional replacement because trenchless doesn’t work in all circumstances.

An experienced plumber will examine clogged or damaged sewer lines thoroughly recommending a good solution. This inspection usually involves small drain camera that scans entire lines to isolate damaged areas. There’s no guesswork involved as they know exactly where the problem is before carrying out replacements.
