Advanced Pipe Replacement—Trenchless Sewer Repair Vs. Traditional
Pipe repair or replacement isn’t easy or inexpensive. This is why selecting the method of pipe repair can be quite challenging for homeowners.
Many may opt for a traditional sewer repair because it is a cheaper method. However, the cost is not the only factor that homeowners should take into consideration.
Here are ways in which an advanced pipe replacement method, such as trenchless method, is far superior to the traditional:
A trenchless sewer repair can be done without spoiling the landscaping of the yards. Many homeowners spend several months just to make their front yard look beautiful, and all is gone within hours when a traditional sewer repair take place.
Digging up sewer lines also means that hundreds of hours and manpower put into the landscaping of the house are gone to waste; not to mention the costs.
A trenchless sewer repair only requires two holes to be dug on either side of the damaged pipe, which significantly reduce the damage to the landscaping.
A traditional sewer repair means dozens of working hours and a whole crew of workers. Nobody likes workmen in their homes for extended periods of time as it disrupts everyday life for family members.
First, the sewer lines will be dug, then repairs will be made and then the trench will be covered again—the whole process can take a week. Whereas in a trenchless sewer repair, a whole pipe can be replaced in just a few days and small repairs can be made within a span of few hours.
With a trenchless repair, the functionality of the plumbing system is improved. This is because the new pipe is always larger than the one replaced. This increase in capacity enables better flow of water in the plumbing lines.
Trenchless pipes are also seamless, which means there is no danger of cracks, off-set pipes or tree invasion. Other than that, most trenchless replacements are done with Polyethylene piping, which does not corrode or rust like other traditional piping materials.
Trenchless pipe repair is a much more efficient method as there is no risk of poor assembly of the pipes. A poor assembly or ill-fitting could lead to leakage, which ultimately defeats the purpose of the repair. Shoddy workmanship is common if an amateur plumber is hired.
Getting a trenchless sewer repair is more expensive than getting a traditional repair, but only if the labor and material costs are considered. If the historical and replacement costs of landscaping are taken into consideration, this might not be the case.
For bigger projects where digging trenches require more labor hours, the costs of labor may easily exceed trenchless pipe repair. Hence, trenchless sewer repair may sometimes prove to be even less costly than traditional.
