Although most sewer lines and systems last many years, even decades, at some point they will need to be replaced. Since most sewer lines run under the surrounding yard and landscaping of a building or home, if they are physically removed and replaced, it can make a mess of the property for weeks and months to come. However there are easier and less disruptive solutions available for property owners facing this dilemma. Budget Sewer of Seattleoffers trenchless sewer replacement. Seattle sewer lines can be replaced without destroying the lawn and landscaping above.
How Trenchless Sewer Replacement Is Possible
The old way of replacing sewer lines required that trenches be dug above the existing lines to extract the old pipe and lay down new lines. This excavation process ruined any landscaping that was in place and was very labor intensive as well as inconvenient for the property owner. However there are now trenchless options that not only do not destroy the lawn above, but also take less time and are just as effective
The process involves digging only two holes, one entry hole and one exit hole. Instead of removing the old pipe, it is shattered and used as a guide to insert the new pipe. To start, a splitting head that acts like a jackhammer is inserted into the entry hole of the old pipe. As this head goes into the old pipe it shatters the existing pipe and pulls behind it the new pipe. Essentially, as the old pipe is broken, the new pipe takes its place. The entire process can be done in as little as a day or two, versus a week or more for the old method. It is much less invasive to the property, much faster and, in some cases, even less expensive.
Better Sewer Lines With Fewer Problems
Not only is trenchless sewer replacement less disruptive and quicker than traditional methods, the new pipes that Budget Sewer uses will last longer and have less problems than many of the older pipes that are in Seattle today. The new sewer pipes are seamless, made of Polyethylene, with no joints to offset or allow tree roots to penetrate. In addition, property owners can choose to have a larger pipe in diameter inserted to give better sewer flow, which is easy to do using the trenchless sewer replacement technology. Many of the problems that occur in older pipes made of clay or cast iron will be obsolete with these new pipes, saving money on repairs and clogs in the future.
