Did You Know About Trenchless Sewer Line Repairs?

Over time everything ages and sewer line pipes are no exception. The pipes can crack, become crushed by tree roots or settle to leave cracks or gaps between the sections of pipe. And when that happens, sewage can begin leaking into your yard or even worse, into your home. At the first sign of an issue with your sewer pipes, it is important that you call Flow Plumbing at 214-388-8838 or email us at service@flowplumbing.com to schedule an appointment. We use the latest technology to locate and repair sewer issues so that we can avoid digging up your property.

The Old Method Of Sewer Line Repair

In the past, the only option to locate and repair a sewer line issue was to dig up the pipe until the issue was located. This could entail trenching up a large portion of your yard. Then, after the repair was made, the trenches needed to be refilled and any damaged landscape replaced. It could take months for your yard and landscape to return to its original appearance. And in some cases, there were issues with the soil settling and leaving low spots in the yard.

The New Method For Sewer Line Repair

Rather than destroying your lawn and landscape, a new method of repair called trenchless sewer line repair can be used. In this process, a flexible pipe is coated with a special resin. Then the pipe is inserted into the damaged pipe. Once the new pipe is in place, it is inflated and the resin bonds the new pipe to the inside of the old pipe. This process does reduce the diameter of the sewer line but only by about ¼” which will not have an impact on the drainage function. The only destruction of your property is a single hole that is dug to access the original pipe so that the new pipe can be inserted. Property owners should expect the price per foot of the trenchless sewer repair to be a little higher than the old type of repair. But in most cases, the overall cost of the job is lower when using the trenchless method as there is far less money spent on refilling trenches and repairing the damage to the landscape and grass.
