Faster It can often get the job done in just one day while the same repair could take several days or weeks using traditional dig and replace methods.
Cost-effective Using trenchless methods to repair a drain, sewer or storm pipe might seem more expensive when compared to traditional methods until you factor in the cost of replacing damaged property. Remember, traditional techniques for repairing sewers are usually quite invasive. After the work is done you’ll be stuck with the bill for putting everything back together again. Depending on what needed to be destroyed to get to the damaged pipes, this could easily mean thousands of dollars in additional restoration expenses.
Minimally-invasive Because drain, sewer and storm pipes are underground or in walls and rather hard to get at, repairs usually involve some destruction of property. Trenchless repair keeps this to an absolute minimum.
Doesn’t destroy your property Depending on where the damaged host pipe is located, traditional dig and replace methods might involve digging up floors and tearing down walls simply to access the host pipe. The cost of fixing this kind of damage could be significant. Trenchless methods can often get the job done by digging only one small pit outside, just enough to access the pipe. Patented technology is also available for a true zero dig application by accessing the host pipe directly through the cleanout.
Effective Repairing drains, sewers and storm pipes using trenchless techniques is just as effective as traditional methods. If you’re wondering why it isn’t used in all cases, is because the host pipe is not always a candidate 100% of the time. For example, if the host pipe is collapsed, back-pitched or missing major sections of pipe, trenchless repair methods may not work.
Designed to last decades Trenchless drain, sewer and storm pipe repair isn’t just a quick fix. Current trenchless technology methods provide a 50-100 year life expectancy.
