Having problems with your sewer lines and pipes can be quite unpleasant. Once you have backed up sewage in or around your home, there is no mistaking the odor. This is definitely a job for a local plumbing company. The first thing that often comes to mind is how expensive the repair or replacement is going to be. However, much of the expense with sewer lines come from the repairing of the structures and landscaping that has to be disrupted or broken to reach the pipes. Having to restore sidewalks, driveways and landscaping can be costly. Luckily, there is a new improved method like trenchless sewer line repair. When it comes time to have your sewer lines repaired, it’s worth comparing the cost of the traditional method (digging) or trenchless pipe repair. Rely on a Sandy plumbing company to help you weigh the pros and cons of both.
Traditional Sewer Line Repair or Replacement
The more traditional approach for sewer pipe replacement or repair is the more invasive method. It involves disrupting surface areas and landscaping by digging above your sewer line to access the pipe. Most often this means cutting through sidewalks or driveways if the sewer lines run underneath. Once the old sewer line is uncovered, it is removed and a new line is installed and reburied. One of the biggest downfalls to this method is the costly repairs it creates from all the digging.
Trenchless Sewer Line Repair or Replacement
At Plumbing Utah Heating & Air, we are able to utilize two different trenchless sewer line repair and replacement techniques. These trenchless pipe repair and replacement methods include pipe lining and pipe bursting. With both of these methods, an access hole is dug to allow repiping tools to reach the current sewer line. The trenchless method is minimally invasive and relatively fast in comparison to the traditional method. Depending on where the pipes are located, projects using the trenchless method can usually be completed within a day, and often in just several hours. In addition, avoiding the need to dig can save on landscaping/concrete repair costs and the need for permits.
Pipe Relining Method
Pipe relining is a process where a new pipe lining is sent through your old pipe once it has been cleared of all debris. The pipe lining then hardens into a new pipe that is just as strong as a traditional pipe. It also has the added benefit of being resistant to corrosion and having no joints (where potential leaks can happen). Furthermore, this method allows you to replace cracked or damaged pipes that have not collapsed, allowing huge savings!
Pipe Bursting Method
If your pipe has collapsed and you want to pursue a trenchless sewer repair method, pipe bursting maybe your best option. With this trenchless method, a pipe bursting tool is put through your old pipe. The tool is able to break or burst apart the old pipe as it pulls a new pipe behind it.
