The technology used in the construction of sewer systems has come a long way. Traditionally, sewer systems were constructed by digging up trenches and laying up the pipework to form the complete system. Problems would be encountered when there was a breakage affecting any of the pipes in the system. Repair works on the system could not be carried out unless a larger part of the system was dug up and exposed, which would ultimately affect any overlying structure. Nowadays, this is not the case. Trenchless sewer systems have been manufactured that are way better than their predecessors. The trenchless sewer repair involves the digging of only two access holes from which the broken part can be accessed and replaced. This mode of sewer system repair has numerous advantages as compared to the usual method of digging and replacing the pipe network. Here are some advantages associated with this method.
When you select the trenchless sewer repair method, you will, in the end, find that you are spending less than if you’d have used the traditional method. The repair work does not involve as much work of digging and replacing the damaged parts. And since there will be less work involved, fewer people will be required to work on the system to restore it fully. The result will be the lowering of the total cost of repairing the system.
It is also possible to carry out the repair of the system quickly and at a very high efficiency. The sewer system actually serves the purpose of obscuring from view human waste that would otherwise sicken whoever beholds it. When the pipes burst, there will be a spread of bad odor, and the possibility of infection will be high. There is need to have such a system repaired quickly to avoid such an eventuality from happening. With the trenchless sewer repair method, you can be able to carry out this process very fast and achieve your intentions.
There is also minimal damage of property when this approach is used. Some homesteads have sewer lines laid down under buildings, across gardens and other important structures. When digging and replacing is used, it will lead to destruction of such structures since trenches and furrows have to be dug to unearth the damaged parts. Trenchless sewer repair, however, does not disturb these structures but rather leaves them intact.
The use of the trenchless approach to sewer repair will eliminate the need to replace damaged equipment. Because of the minimal disturbance to property during the procedure, very few structures will be broken down or destroyed. This is because the repair work may either involve passing the replacement pipe through the old one and aligning them together, or bursting the old pipe with the new one. This process protects any structure lying on top of the pipe system and leaves it intact.
