Before You Give the OK on a Pipe or Sewer Repair, Read This

Sewer line repair cost

Pipe or sewer line repair always has to be a major headache, right? Wrong. That may have been true a decade ago, but the rise of trenchless pipe repair and trenchless sewer repair on the residential market has been a game changer. Essentially, trenchless technology (also called “no dig” technology) involves inserting a high-tech liner into an existing pipe in order to rehabilitate it, rather than having to dig up the entire length of the pipe in order to repair or replace it. Here are the three major advantages trenchless pipe repair offers homeowners:

  1. Less Time

    Trenchless pipe and sewer repairs take less time than traditional repairs, since there’s no need to excavate in more than one small spot (in most cases, the liners can be inserted from a single upstream point along the pipe). That means instead of taking weeks, a repair can take only a couple days. You’ll be back to normal life before you know it.

  2. Less Hassle

    Trenchless pipe repairs come with a lot less hassle than traditional ones. You’ll be dealing with less of a mess, since your whole yard won’t need to be dug up. You’ll have fewer worries later on down the line, too, as trenchless repairs can actually provide superior quality; they last just as long as traditional replacement pipes, but also increase system functioning and resist damage from tree roots, corrosion and cracking.

  3. Less Money

    This may sound too good to be true, but trenchless pipe replacement costs less, in many cases, than traditional repair or replacement. It may not seem that way at first, since the materials themselves may be more expensive. But because trenchless repairs take so much less time, there’s a significantly reduced labor cost, which can tip the balance in the other direction. And, of course, you’ll save money by not having to replace the expensive landscaping that’s usually disrupted by pipe and sewer line repairs.
