What Is a Trenchless Sewer Replacement?
When a home’s sewer pipes burst or become damaged, the repairs can be extremely expensive. In some cases, a homeowner must pay for a trench to be dug across the street of their home. If this is needed, a homeowner could be looking at paying up to $20,000. Many homeowners are unaware there is the option of Trenchless Sewer Replacement. There are two main types for a homeowner to choose from with each one offering their own benefits.
CIPP technology or cured in place pipe is a method that attempts to use the existing structures of the sewer system and rehabilitate them so the system is renewed and no longer damaged. With this type of Trenchless Sewer Replacement, there is less digging because the company does not need to dig along the entire pipe. A liner is put in place and then cured once it has been installed. This method creates a brand new pipe within the confines of the original one. Many homeowners are confused and think this is a temporary fix for their sewer. CIPP is meant to be a permanent solution and can last up to fifty years.
Another option for trenchless sewer systems is pipe bursting. This has become an even more popular option than cured in place pipe. In this method, the old pipe is broken apart and destroyed. The reason this process is so easy is because digging does not have to be done since a machine breaks up the pipes. As the old pipe is destroyed, the new pipe can be laid at the same time, maximizing time and minimizing effort. This method of piping the sewer typically lasts the same length of time as CIPP.
A trenchless sewer can save homeowners tons of money while ensuring their home’s sewer system is working effectively to handle their waste.
