Trenchless sewer line repair and replacement techniques offer a way to fix problems without damaging your lawn, patio, or driveway. As our properties age, so do the piping and sewer lines underground. It is easy to forget about our sewer lines until there is a problem. These lines face root intrusion, environmental hazards, and normal wear and tear 24/7/365. This hostile environment results in cracked, leaking, collapsed, and broken pipes. Compared to the dig and replace sewer line techniques of the past, trenchless methods require less restoration and less disturbance. One of these noninvasive trenchless sewer methods we offer is Pipe Bursting. Innovative Morningside Plumbing is one of the only plumbers to offer Druid Hills Pipe Bursting Trenchless Sewer Repair.
What Do Other Plumbers Have To Offer?
As far as sewer line repair and replacement, most other plumbers stick to the original dig and replace trenching techniques. Dig and replace goes something like this:
- Plumbers dig out the old sewer line and area around it.
- Next, they lay the new piping in the trench
- Then plumbers cover the new piping with dirt, filling the trench.
- The plumbers send you a bill. After you pay the bill, the restoration process is yours to navigate.
Problems With The Old Dig And Replace Method
- It is a challenge for plumbing companies to complete trenching and excavation safely 100% of the time
- Excavation requires heavy equipment, transported by even weightier machinery.
- Sometimes the process requires tree removal and the complete removal of the tree’s root system.
- Accessing the sewer line may require ripping out driveways, patios, landscaping, and more.
- Often the public right of way region of the sewer line must be excavated with the removal of city sidewalks, trees, and the like.
- Trenching projects regularly encounter unforeseen complications mid dig that extend timelines, raise costs, and stress out homeowners.
- Most homeowners will see the beautiful yard they have nurtured for years destroyed. One of the worst scenarios is losing something with sentimental or even historical value like an old shady oak.
What is Druid Hills Pipe Bursting Trenchless Sewer Repair or In-Line Expansion?
Druid Hills Pipe Bursting Trenchless Sewer Repair is a no-dig method, sometimes referred to as in-line expansion. Typically, the process starts with a fiber optic camera inspection. Next, to gain pipe access, we dig contained entry and exit areas. Lastly, specialized pipe bursting machinery pulls the new pipe through the existing sewer line. The old line bursts and breaks away with the installation of the new pipe in its place. Like all trenchless technologies, pipe bursting is the top choice because it limits digging and construction.
