How Do I Know if I Need Trenchless Sewer Repair?
If you’re sewer lines are more than 40 years old, they may be in danger of needing repairs. Old clay and cast iron pipes may accumulate damage over time, especially at the joints where the sections of pipe connect.
Because of the weakening joints or roots of near by trees, older pipes are more prone the bursting which can lead to large amounts of damage to indoor and outdoor property.
Clogs occurring further along in the piping can also cause the need for sewer repairs. Many things, including tree roots, can be the cause of these clogs.
A professional pipe specialist can come examine your sewer pipes and determine what type of repairs you may need.
What are the Benefits?
Choosing trenchless sewer repair over the standard type of pipe repair has many benefits. The major benefit is it lacks the need for digging large trenches around the damaged area. Only two holes are needed, one at the start of the damaged pipe and another at the end of the repaired section.
If your problem occurs under a deck or patio or over a large area, trenchless repair can save your outdoor entertainment areas and surrounding property from costly damage and timely repairs. Another major advantage is the short amount of time it takes to complete repairs using this method. Repairs that normally would have taken weeks of digging to fix or replace the old pipe can now be completed in a single day.
How Can I Stop this from Happening Again?
Taking precautions and planning for the future are your best hope against needing costly repairs. One major step you can take to prevent the need for repairs is to replace the old length of clay or cast iron sewer pipes with new jointless pipes or insert a pipe liner.
Both of these can be accomplished using trenchless sewer repair method. Jointless pipes and pipe lines can also help prevent against root damage caused by tree roots growing into the joints of connecting sewer pipes.
While rooting can temporarily solve the problem, the roots of the tree will continue to grow and may cause more problems down the line.
