Traditional vs. Trenchless Sewer Repair

Just like any other piece of plumbing, sewer lines running to and from a property can fall into disrepair over time. Tree roots, earth movement, and corrosion all play a part in forming cracks and leakages and, without treatment, a broken pipe can quickly turn into a smelly, unhygienic, and damaging mess.

Unlike the regular plumbing in your home, however, main sewer lines are difficult to access and, therefore, much harder to repair. For a long time, the only way of locating and replacing the problem section would often require you to dig a trench and uncover the entire length of the pipe. In the process, this also means you would possibly have to:

  • Dig up large chunks of your garden.
  • Tear up parts of your concrete driveway and sidewalk.
  • Restrict access to a large, potentially hazardous area of your property.
  • Shut down traffic to the road.
  • Obtain time-consuming and expensive permits to dig and disrupt traffic.

Trenchless sewer repair provides a solution to many of the problems that the traditional method faces. For both of the main trenchless repair techniques—pipe bursting and pipe lining—the access required to the pipe is minimal, and an entire sewer line can be replaced without ruining your home and garden.

That isn’t the only difference between the two approaches. To find out more about the advantages and costs of each, just check out this infographic. If you’re not sure which one’s right for you, call us at (512) 246-5400 for a free quote!
