If there’s one thing that all home and business owners have in common, it is the immediate feeling of dread when plumbing issues arise. Unfortunately, plumbing repair does not really fall under the “DIY” category, but that doesn’t mean you can’t control how your pipes get fixed.
With hydro jetting services and other trenchless drain repair techniques, you can obtain these important fixes without having to sacrifice your beautiful landscape. Whether you own a home or business, you likely take pride in the aesthetic appeal of your building exterior. Trenchless methods avoid the need to destroy your landscape, saving you thousands of dollars in restorative work.
Since trenchless professionals will be completing the entire repair for you, you don’t necessarily need to know all of the boring details of pipe lining and bursting. However, you should have a basic understanding of these methods so you can make a joint decision with your plumber regarding what you’d like to invest in. Here’s a quick overview of three of the most common and beneficial trenchless repairs:
Hydro jetting services
Before your trenchless repair begins, your plumber will perform drain inspections to diagnose the exact issue. If the problem in your pipes is a clog, whether it be from leaves or sewage, hydro jetting services may be the best solution. Hydro jetting uses high-pressure bursts of water to blast away the issue. This is all done without the need to dig a giant hole in your landscape, and the process can be completed in just one visit.
Trenchless pipe lining
If you bought your home as opposed to having it built, there’s a very strong chance that your pipes have already begun to deteriorate. Consumer advocate Angie Hicks of Angie’s List recommends an inspection of your sewer lines if your home is more than 40 years old. Trenchless pipe lining enables your plumber to essentially insert a reinforcement pipe into your current pipe, solidifying it for years to come.
Trenchless pipe bursting
Pipe bursting is similar to pipe lining, but instead of merely reinforcing your current pipes, this method will replace them. A new pipe goes into the current pipes and “bursts” it, creating room for the new pipe. Experts say pipe bursting and lining are equally durable, and many come with warranties ranging from 10 to 50 years.
About 78% of Angie’s List poll respondents hadn’t heard of “no dig” sewer technology, but once they learned of its many benefits, they were completely on board. Invest in one of these three incredible plumbing repairs and spare your landscape from damage.
