One trenchless option for repairing sewer lines is pipe bursting. Continuous use and age can cause even the most durable piping material to degrade overtime. After decades of flushing wastewater and delivering water to your home, the sewer line can develop cracks. Those small cracks can lead to weakening or a collapsed pipe. Traditional pipe repair work meant days of digging an invasive trench through your yard to remove the old pipe and install a new line. Not only would you face the cost of pipe repair, but you would also be left with a steep landscaping bill. In some circumstances, sewer specialists will recommend pipe bursting sewer repair option.
Fortunately, Western Rooter uses a trenchless drain line replacement method that eliminates the need for tearing up your yard. With trenchless pipe bursting, our technicians can replace underground pipes in a timely manner without days of digging.
Pipe bursting is a technique that allows our highly skilled technicians to eliminate the old pipe while simultaneously laying a new pipe in the path. With trenchless technologies, we can complete this job with only two access holes rather than excavating your entire lawn. One access hole is used as an entry point for the bursting head. The head is guided through the old pipe, shattering it along the way and pushing pieces of the pipe into the surrounding soil. While breaking apart the old pipe, the burst head is simultaneously leading the way and laying the new pipe. The newly laid pipe will last for decades.
Trenchless pipe busting is considered one of the most effective plumbing repair options for pipe replacement. The primary benefit of choosing pipe bursting over another repair option is there is no loss of internal diameter for your pipes. Flow of water and waste will not be restricted by smaller pipes. Secondly, the condition of the old pipe has virtually no effect on the trenchless pipe replacement process as it will be destroyed during the repair.
Your home or business will face minimal downtime as the trenchless sewer repair process typically takes only one day to complete. In addition, the repair process works for several pipe materials, so even if you are dealing with an older plumbing system, pipe bursting is a viable option.
