Repairing Sewers through Trenchless Technology
Residential and commercial sewers that need repair can be best attended to by hiring plumbers. The problems of your sewers can be pinpointed quickly and efficiently by plumbers of today using the modern technology and video inspections. People do not like the damages that go with the old method of sewer line repairs. The use of video inspection is a good way to see cracks in your sewer lines, or root intrusion, or a collapsed sewer line without destroying your sewer system. This is done with the use of a tiny camera attached to the end of the auger line.
There is another new method called the trenchless technology, that allows plumbers to conduct repairs one point to either end of the line through the two small access points. With this system, your entire sewer line does not need to be uncovered because of the efficient repair that does not need for your yard, landscaping or driveway to be disrupted. In the past, repairs of sewer systems have to do large scale of excavation. The past method was considered both an expensive and a lengthy process, because you are left with a damaged yard or driveway or landscaping that needs also another repair. In fact, the cost in repairing your driveways, yards, and landscape would be much higher than the sewer repair itself. For these reasons, the modern technology gives sewer repairs a new service that is efficient and less costly.
In a trenchless sewer repair, you are offered with two kinds of options which are the pipe relining and pipe bursting. With pipe bursting method, as the new pipe is pulled through, the old pipe undergoes bursting.
Pipe relining differs from pipe bursting in the sense that this method does not split the old pipe apart, and instead, fiber glass lining is placed inside the destroyed pipe. The pipes are thus sealed and this will give the pipes a longer life with the kind of work and details applied.
So when you think you have a damaged sewer system, it is good to contact a professional plumber with the knowledge and equipment of the no dig technology. The no-dig method is becoming more of the practice among professional plumbers in solving sewage and water line problems. Those professional plumbers who are adapting to the no-dig technology and also using highly advanced video cameras, are giving more efficient jobs in a fast manner. This system is advantageous especially to the homeowners who will not see their beautiful gardens being destroyed. This new technology is a great alternative to the traditional way when work takes longer and more destructive to one’s surrounding properties.
