Why Consider Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement
Previously, a sewer line replacement required a substantial amount of excavation on your property. A trench would have to be dug out along the length of the sewer line. That may not sound so bad, but considering the fact that there may be walkways, driveways, trees, and bushes above the sewer line, you can start to see why it may become a serious issue. The good news is that trenchless sewer line replacement goes a long way towards resolving such issues.
Using trenchless technology allows for a much simpler, less destructive method of replacing a sewer line. You just need to make sure that any such project is helmed by a skilled, trained professional. To pits must be dug out, one at each end of the sewer line requiring replacement. A pneumatic device is placed in one pit, and this machinery simply pulls the replacement sewer line through the old one from the opposite end. There are a few ways in which this process may play out, depending upon the material your existing pipe is made of, as well as its condition. If the pipe in the ground must be burst, a conical head will lead the way in front of the replacement pipe. This will burst the old one as the new one is pulled into place behind it.
In other instances, the new pipe may simply force the old one out of the ground as it is pulled into place. In either event, you have a brand new sewer line in place with far less cost and disruption to your property.
