The sewer line, the pipe that runs underneath your yard and to the sewer system, is not something you’ve given a lot of thought to. But when you find out it’s broken, it can become your biggest stress. A broken sewer line could leak sewage onto your property, and backup is more than just a hassle; it’s a health hazard.
But the idea of ripping up your front yard to replace this vital part of your property is an annoyance, to say the least. Thankfully, local plumbers may have a solution. Trenchless sewer repair allows some plumbers to essentially replace the sewer line without the need to rip up your yard. Learn more about this process below.
The process of a trenchless sewer pipe replacement or repair involves some heavy equipment designed specifically for the job. That’s why many local plumbers may not have it, and why you may not have heard of it before. There are a couple of variations of this process, which involves pushing or pulling a new pipe where the old pipe was.
Most plumbers primarily use pipelining rather than pipe bursting. Pipe bursting may be dangerous with public utilities around. With pipelining, the new pipe should cure in place within a few hours. While your pipe diameter will be a bit smaller, this shouldn’t have any noticeable effect on drainage.
Trenchless sewer relining benefits you in a couple of major ways.
Typically, you’ll only need to have one hole in the yard, and it should bypass your landscaping. You’ll save on restoring driveways and sidewalks, gardens, and any costs the city charges for repairs to public roads.
If sewer relining is available, we often recommend it—but not always.
And trenching may be something you and your family are fine with. A skilled plumber may be able to dig a trench in a way that does not really ruin your yard. Ask your plumber for more information, but make sure trenchless repair is something they offer.
