There is no such thing as a perfect sewer. At some point, repairs will be imminent. Holes, cracks, leaks, roots, and even just old age all have the ability to compromise the health of your sewer system in varying degree. When those things happen, you may find yourself in a position to need parts of your pipeline repaired.
While it’s foolish to think that you will never have to repair any portion of your pipeline, it is not foolish to educate yourself on the costs involved with how you choose to go about repairing those pipes. If you’re like most people, you probably think these repairs involve digging, excavating, permits, and being displaced from your home while they happen.
Fortunately, there’s another way.
Trenchless Sewer Repair
Using state of the art technology, it is now possible to repair sewers without excavation and digging. This trenchless method uses small access points—that may even already exist—and allows for a liner to be placed inside your existing, damaged pipes. The end result is a fixed pipeline and an untouched lawn or driveway.
Holes, leaks, cracks, and roots are all eliminated. So are the extraneous costs involved in repairs that require excavation.
Trenchless Sewer Repair Saves Money
At first glance, it may seem like trenchless sewer repair is a more expensive route to take than excavation. While it’s true that the cost per foot for trenchless repairs can be more than the more traditional method, those costs are the only ones you have to worry about.
The Real Expense of Traditional Plumbing Repairs
Now, on top of what you’ll spend on having your pipelines dug up, pulled out, and replaced, you will also need to factor in everything that will be destroyed as a result of the excavation. And don’t forget the cost of restoration.
Take a second to consider the location of your home and the sewer lines that lie underneath it. Are there sidewalks? What about a public street? Do you have pipelines that run under your garage or driveway? What condition is your sewer line in at this very moment?
The answers to those questions should be considered before you find yourself in a position to need sewer repair. This is because they all affect the costs that you will take on in having those repairs done. This is also where saving money with trenchless sewer repair comes in.
There is a Better Way
When you choose to have your sewers repaired using the trenchless method, you’re choosing to eliminate costs down the road. You won’t need to pay for permits to dig. You won’t need to pay for an eye-sore of a trench on your property. There are no hotel costs as you won’t even need to leave your home, and you won’t be paying even more money on top of the repairs to get back any curb appeal that was lost due to digging and excavation.
Save Time, Save Money, Save Stress
Traditions go a long way in a home, and we know that, but they don’t belong in sewer repair. With the option of trenchless sewer repair available to you, there’s more to be gained than a quick, effective way to repair your pipes. There’s money to be saved.
Keep your time, keep your money, and let the experts at Rapid Plumbing help keep your peace of mind by giving the trenchless method a chance to change the way you think of modern day sewer repair.
