Years ago, it used to take major excavation work to access and repair sewer lines. Plumbers used to dig long, narrow ditches (trenches) to access faulty lines so they could be fixed or replaced. This meant heaps of displaced dirt and the need to re-route traffic, which could make the job take days. The cost was also significant due to the amount of labor involved.
Trenchless sewer repair offers a number of advantages for any property owner. It can be completed faster, cheaper, and with less destruction than traditional methods.
Trenchless Repairs Are Faster
The amount of time it takes to complete a trenchless sewer repair is dramatically less than traditional methods. Depending on the scope of the project, a trenchless repair can be done in a day. Digging a trench, re-routing traffic, and putting everything back together can take days (or even weeks).
It Costs Less to Go Trenchless
The cost of trenchless repairs is significantly less because there is less labor and equipment involved. Think about what it takes to dig trenches, not just in dirt, but potentially through tree roots, below concrete, and near a home or office building. Without having to dig a trench and re-route sewer lines, your costs will be far less.
