The Trenchless Sewer Line and the Convenience It Brings
If you live in an old house, it’s highly likely that your sewer line is quite old as well.
Traditional sewer lines require long deep trenches that allow homes to access underground pipes. Their condition may be affected by factors like tree root infiltration, blockage, pipe damage due to shifting soil, and material aging and degradation. These issues warrant sewer line repair, which can be difficult and expensive. It entails a lot of time, effort, and digging, resulting in messy yards and expensive repair or replacement costs.
The advent of the trenchless sewer system changes all of that. This repair option has been around since the 1940s, but it only gained traction in the 1970s. As suggested by its name, a trenchless sewer line does away with trenches and extensive digging.
One of the more efficient sewer line repair options, the trenchless sewer line involves minimal digging, making it a viable choice for cities. Given that a trenchless sewer line causes minimal disruption to properties, there’s no need to close off streets, reroute traffic, or even pay high repair costs.
The Advantages of a Trenchless Sewer
Apart from the convenience having trenchless sewers offers, its relatively low repair costs makes it an appealing option to many homeowners.
It’s also a safer and longer-lasting alternative to traditional sewer lines. With traditional sewer systems, there’s a risk of exposing biohazardous materials when pipes are exposed for repairs. A trenchless pipe system minimizes this risk, as it doesn’t involve extensive digging.
A trenchless sewer line uses cured-in-place pipes (CIPPs), which are used to repair existing pipes. They get their name from a process that creates a pipe within a pipe. This process involves the use of a resin-saturated tub that hardens after curing, creating a durable pipe-within-a-pipe system. CIPPs are a widely-used option for water and sewer line repairs in the US. They’re a jointless and seamless system that offers a more affordable and efficient option to open-cut replacement methods.
Moreover, trenchless pipe repair is a quicker alternative. Most repairs can be done in a few hours, so you and your family can continue your regular activities. Given that the repairs require minimal to no digging, they won’t damage your landscape.
Another advantage of a trenchless sewer is it’s designed to be as effective, if not better, than conventional sewer lines. Trenchless sewers are a durable and long-lasting alternative. Most HDPE replacement pipes have around a 50- to 100-year life expectancy. This gives you and your family peace of mind for years to come and lets you significantly save on sewer line repair costs.
