One of the most aggravating moments in your life as a homeowner will probably be when you realize that you need a sewer line repair, sewer line cleaning, sewer line replacement, or another such aggravating but necessary task taken care of. With 104,852 companies in the U.S. ready to deal with your sewage and plumbing needs, the prospect of choosing one contractor may seem daunting. However, you now know that your first question should be about whether or not they offer pipe bursting or trenchless sewer repair and replacement.

What Does Trenchless Pipe Repair Mean?

If you’re unfamiliar with trenchless sewer repair, you’re not alone; 78% of surveyed Angie’s List users hadn’t heard of “no dig” technology. A trenchless pipe repair or replacement refers to the practice of using trenchless technology to repair or replace sewer lines and plumbing. Trenchless technology ensures that 90% less damage is done to surrounding landscape and concrete work.

How Much Does A Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Cost?

Trenchless sewer line replacement cost varies from company to company; however, 73% of those polled on Angie’s List said that they would pay more for a sewer line replacement if they could be ensured that damage to their yard would be minimized. Indeed, the cost of repairing damage to your property can easily outdo a trenchless sewer line replacement cost. Plumbing and sewer lines put in place by trenchless technology are also very durable, potentially providing more of a return than work done through traditional methods.

Can I Have Pipes Replaced Or Repaired With Trenchless Technology?

You absolutely can, through pipe bursting. “Pipe bursting” refers to the process by which buried piplines are replaced in a trenchless manner. The trench is replaced with launching and receiving pits, which means that the pipe can be laid without excavation. As with trenchless sewer line repair and replacement, pipe bursting cost is made up through the minimal damage done and ensured durability. In fact, pipe bursting often comes with a 10 to 50 year warranty.

Why Should I Care?

You should care because traditional methods of repairing and replacing sewer lines and plumbing can take an agonizing amount of time and money. This is compounded by the fact that you then have to wait to have your yard repaired, all the while making further payments to have those repairs done. Trenchless technology is particularly appealing if you live in a neighborhood setting, wherein the aesthetic appeal of a property is important.

Although traditional sewer line and pipe repair is an option, it’s not a particularly appealing one when you consider the combined efforts and cost involved. It’s advisable to look into new technology, and soon.
