What Is Trenchless Technology?
There was a time when encountering a problem with one’s sewer line meant that a serious headache was inevitable. In order to access the sewer line to inspect it and to pinpoint the source of the problem—let alone resolve it successfully—a trench would have to be dug along its entire length. This meant that anything above that sewer line, be it trees, shrubbery, or even paved walkways and driveways, would have to be torn up as well. With trenchless technology, this level of disruption is completely done away with.
By using any number of methods, including pipe ramming, pipe jacking, horizontal directional boring, and others, trenchless technology allows trained plumbers the opportunity to remove, replace, install, and even to repair pipes buried underground without the need for digging them up. In the event of a sewer line replacement, for instance, a winch will typically be used in order to pull a new pipe into place, requiring only that a hole be excavated at each end of the pipe in question. The winch will pull the new pipe into place, forcing the old one out the other end, or simply breaking the old one up via the use of a pipe–bursting head, which leads the way.
Benefits of Trenchless Technology
The most obvious benefit of the utilization of trenchless technology is the fact that so little excavation is required on one’s property. Not only does this mean that your property won’t be as torn up as it otherwise would be, but it also facilitates the relatively quick completion of the project at hand.
Should you have any reason to believe that you need your sewer line repaired or replaced, be sure to give a member of our team of experts a call before resigning yourself to having that pipe excavated completely. We’ll assess the situation, and we’ll determine if trenchless technology is a viable option on your property. If so, we’ll see to it that the job is completed with the requisite skill and care.
