Trenchless Sewer Repair
Facing sewer problems is never fun! If you suspect you need sewer repair or you think there may be a sewer problem but you’re not sure, call us at The Pipe Doctor in Alexandria today! We’ll find out what is going on down in your sewer line and come up with the right solution for you. Most of the time, we can use trenchless sewer repair techniques to get everything back to normal.
What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Trenchless sewer repair is technology that allows us to fix your sewer line without digging it up. When you avoid sewer line excavation, your repair is faster, cheaper, and less stressful for everyone involved.
When we use trenchless sewer repair techniques, we’ll access your sewer line via a hatch in your home or an access port in your yard. We’ll use computers and other technology to see your pipes and fix them. Keep in mind that we may still need to dig a couple of small holes, but these won’t be nearly as extensive as those involved in sewer line excavation.
Trenchless Sewer Repair vs. Conventional Sewer Repair
Some homeowners aren’t sure if trenchless sewer repair is right for them. We don’t blame them! After all, these techniques are newer and haven’t been tested as extensively. However, they are still designed to fix your home. Here are just a few of the reasons why people end up going with trenchless sewer repair.
- You don’t have to replace your whole yard. At most, you end up replacing a few feet of grass or sidewalk. We can often avoid trees and shrubs.
- It doesn’t cost as much. When you factor out those yard replacement costs, trenchless sewer repair is the best choice financially.
- It is faster. When we don’t have to get our sewer excavation team out, the job goes much quicker. You also won’t have to spend time fixing your yard in the end!
