Trenchless sewer line repair can save your yard. Groundwater gets contaminated when sewer laterals of drainage lines that are damaged or have aged, start leaking. That is the reason that the EPA has set a target for replacing all home lateral by the year 2015. After this, you will not have to worry about being fined for floating water damage regulations. The damage if any becomes apparent after an inspection by our company and any replacement of the pipes will be done without excavating any trenches. Every job, whether it be big or small, is undertaken. To do this, the company has the latest models of equipment available in the market, and this allows the replacement of the sewer lateral to be done in a way that is friendly to the environment, and with the utmost efficiency and speed. You will indicate your environmental awareness if you take action immediately to ensure that your sewer is undamaged.
Replacing Laterals By Excavation
When any replacement method is used that needs excavation, there is a need to use heavy construction equipment for digging up the old pipe. Such large equipment and the wide trenches will end up causing a destruction of expensive landscaping, while it can also kill trees and cause damage to lawns. Once the laterals are installed, through excavations, there can be soil settlement that can damage structures on the surface. Repairing and putting the landscaping back in place can not only takes time, years at times, but is expensive while it is difficult to execute. The excavations remain open for long periods of time, and the method itself is quite slow in achieving completion.
Replacing Laterals With the Trenchless Method
The technology used in this trenchless sewer line repair method allows the work to be carried out from access points that will not be more than two. What this means is that:
- Your daily routine is hardly disturbed and the repairs are done quickly
- The new HDPE pipe that is installed is guaranteed not to leak
This new pipe is resistant to any corrosion and will not be affected by roots, earthquakes or movements of the ground. There are other methods like the lining of the leaking pipe, but this will reduce the flow in the lateral and will work only as a short-term solution. Replacement of laterals by the trenchless method needs hardly a day’s working time.
Sewer pipes can be repaired or replaced without any need to dig up the area around your home. This method, known as trenchless repair, will avoid any damage to your street, pool driveway, and the yard. It will definitely not disturb any landscaping.
The work starts with a video inspection of all the pipes, whether residential or commercial. Sewage lines connect to septic systems or municipal sewers and are vulnerable to roots of trees that can block the lines or cause them to leak. This leakage can then damage not only your yard but also your home if it is not repaired in time.
In trenchless repair, a fiberglass tube that has a coating of epoxy resin is inserted into the pipe that shows damage. This pipe is then blown up, just like a balloon, and itself becomes the new pipe. The new pipe expands to the same diameter as the old pipe and bursts and destroys it.
