4 REASONS WHY YOU WOULD NEED A TRENCHLESS SEWER REPLACEMENT IN PHOENIX
FEB 08, 2017
Although the technology has been around since the beginning of the 2000s, many homeowners have not heard of or considered trenchless sewer line repair or trenchless sewer replacement when dealing with broken or backed up sewer pipes. Unfortunately, it is not a service that all plumbing professionals are prepared to offer. Also, since the homeowner is dealing with a plumbing emergency, they do not have the time to thoroughly research all of their options. They have a “professional” telling them that they have to dig up their yard, so they are left to deal with the hassle and costs of traditional (trench) sewer line repair.
IS TRENCHLESS SEWER REPLACEMENT A GOOD OPTION FOR YOU?
Most clogs occur in the sink trap or in a pipe close to the drain (especially if you do not practice good drain maintenance) and are relatively easy to repair; in fact, there is a decent chance that you could even fix that type of clog yourself. But in instances where a pipe is clogged, broken or collapsed further down the line in the lateral sewer pipes, more extensive measures are necessary. A plumbing professional will use sewer line cameras to pinpoint the exact problem and assess the situation to advise you of all of your options. Trenchless sewer replacements and trenchless sewer line repairs are a viable and even superior alternative to the older method of sewer line repair (digging an unsightly trench in roads, yards or driveways).
Here are the top 4 reasons you should consider trenchless sewer line replacement in Phoenix:
1. TRENCHLESS SEWER REPLACEMENT AND TRENCHLESS SEWER LINE REPAIRS ARE CHEAPER (IN THE LONG RUN)
While the upfront costs of trenchless sewer line repair may be more, there are hidden costs for the traditional option such as digging(which will require a backhoe), permits, and replacing landscape, hardscaping, or a patio that may fall victim to a trench. Because of these additional costs, trenchless sewer replacement is often the more practical option. The exact cost is highly dependent on individual situations, so be sure to get thorough quotes in writing when deciding how to move forward with your sewer line repair.
2. TRENCHLESS SEWER LINE REPAIR AND TRENCHLESS SEWER REPLACEMENT ARE QUICK AND EASY
Most trenchless sewer line repairs in Phoenix are finished in a single day. Because they require small access holes rather than large amounts of digging to access an entire section of piping, the amount of time that goes into the repair is immediately quicker. Furthermore, you do not have to take the time afterward to fill a trench and then replace (expensive) landscaping, hardscaping, or repair a deck.
3. TRENCHLESS SEWER REPLACEMENT AND TRENCHLESS SEWER LINE REPAIRS ARE VERSATILE
Whether your plumbing issue is caused by a small defect in a lateral sewer pipe or a more serious problem caused by a seriously clogged sewer drain or tree roots intruding on the lines’ space, trenchless sewer line repair can be done in a couple of ways to thoroughly address the problem.
Plumbers use what is known as a pipe burst method. In this instance, a new pipe is dragged along a cable that is going through the pipe via access to a hole dug at either end. As the new pipe is dragged, it pulverizes and replaces the old pipe.
4. TRENCHLESS SEWER LINE REPAIR AND TRENCHLESS SEWER REPLACEMENT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME
Trenchless sewer repairs and replacements use a material known as high-density polyethylene (HDPE). The material is among the most reliable and durable pipe materials currently on the market in the United States.
In fact, we at Donley Service Center are so confident in the strength of HDPE, we offer a 25 year warranty on it when we complete any trenchless sewer line repair or replacement using the material.
