As a homeowner, maintaining and repairing sewer lines can seem like a daunting task. Luckily, with the development of trenchless technology for those repairs, you don't have to face the same overwhelming upheaval to deal with fractured, old or otherwise damaged sewer pipes. Here's a look at a few advantages to opting for trenchless sewer line repairs if you have a damaged line.

Saves You Time and Money

Traditional sewer line repairs require that the plumbing company have the soil excavated above the pipes, digging up your yard along the entire length of the line where the work needs to be done. This initial preparation to expose the pipes can take a lot of time. When you opt for trenchless repair, you won't have to allow for excavation time, which means that the work can be done quicker and easier. When time is of the essence and you need things up and running, this is a great way to go.

Additionally, when you don't have to include the excavation process, you won't have as much of the labor costs and other associated expenses to pay. You also won't have to pay for the use of excavation equipment, soil shoring and the necessary cleanup after the repairs. This can save you significantly on your repairs as well as the cost of a hotel or other accommodations while the work is being done.

Less Intrusive and Cleaner

If your damaged sewer lines are below a carefully and meticulously manicured lawn, you want to choose a repair method that is going to do the least damage to your landscaping. Trenchless sewer line repair only requires a small hole or two in the soil to reach the lines, so you won't have the same disruption in your landscaping. This also results in less upheaval and work to restore the yard when the repairs are done.

Environmentally Friendly

Trenchless sewer repairs allow for specialized equipment that will replace lines without causing any ecological damage. Since there's minimal digging required, you won't disturb plants and native greens, so it maintains the balance of the ecosystem on your property.

As you can see, trenchless sewer repair is a great option when you need to have your sewer lines replaced or patched.
