Ditch The Dig: The Benefits Of Trenchless Pipe Replacement TechnologyPosted By: Ed Miller
If your drainage system suffers from chronic clogs, frequent leaks, or even if the pipes have simply become worn out from continual exposure to the elements, it could mean it’s time for a pipe replacement. Typically, in the past, homeowners would need to dig up their whole yard with trenches along the path of the pipes – it could be tedious, expensive and leave the property looking like a mess. Trenchless Pipe Replacement utilizes innovative technology to replace broken or compromised drains in a timely manner, without all of that invasive, messy digging.
Trenchless Pipe Replacement is used to replace underground pipes without digging trenches along pavements, streets and other surfaces but, instead, a brand new pipe is dragged through the damaged one while, at the same time, fracturing the old pipe outwards. Two small holes are dug and a hydraulic pump pulls a pipe liner, or pipe bursting tool, and a new pipe through and when repairing or replacing the pipe is complete, the holes are refilled. It’s typically used in case the lateral joints have collapsed or if the underground pipes have joints. With new technology comes the misconception that it’s more expensive – it’s not! And there’s several other benefits.
It Can Be A Much More Affordable Option
To fully understand the cost of pipe replacement, you’ll need to look at the bigger picture. Since conventional pipe replacement requires digging along the entire path of the pipe, you’ll also need to factor in the cost of replacing sidewalks and walls – or potentially redoing your yard. So much of the cost is from the aftermath. Trenchless Pipe Replacement only requires digging at the entrance and exit points, so the only cost you have to worry about is for the drain repair.
It Saves A Significant Amount Of Time
Whenever there’s work done around your home, the hope is it’s completed as quickly as possible, so you can get back to your daily routine. Conventional Pipe Replacement can take several days – and that depends on the size of the job and if the weather is cooperative. With Trenchless Pipe Replacement, the work can typically be done within two days, though it also depends on the weather as well, so when facing a time constraint, trenchless is really ideal.
It Allows For Precision, And Environmentally Friendly, Placement
Does the pipe in need of repair lay beneath your driveway, concrete sidewalk, or garden? Trenchless Pipe Replacement is an effective solution for pipes underneath driveways and behind concrete walls, which means no extra digging or demolition! With trenchless pipe replacement, no damage is done to above-ground structures or plants and that means minimal plants or trees will need to be dug up – it’s actually good for the environment. Plus, when there’s more digging, there’s more chances for molds and toxic substances to contaminate your lawn.
