How Does Trenchless Technology Work?

leaking-sewer-lineWhen something goes wrong with your main water line or the sewer line servicing your property, what do you do? Hire a professional plumber, of course.

But what is that plumber going to do? Dig up the entire pipe just to access it for repairs or replacement? There was actually a time when this was the only option. Thankfully, we’ve passed that time to a point where trenchless technology is available for use.

Trenchless technology has many benefits to offer homeowners in need of drain and sewer services. Trenchless technology, whether used for pipe repair or replacement, is also something that only skilled and experienced plumbers can work with. Even professional plumbers may not be qualified if they lack the proper training for trenchless tasks. Work with our plumbers, and you will enjoy prompt and successful drain and sewer services in Benson, AZ.

How It Works

Excavating an entire pipe that is buried on your property requires digging a trench along its entire length. Trenchless technology eliminates the need for such disruptive action. Getting the job done requires the professionals dig only two small holes.

The plumbers dig a hole at each end of the pipe in question. Then, using a pneumatic machine, a pipe burster or liner is drawn from one end of the pipe to the other. If the pipe needs to be replaced entirely, the existing one is burst to make room for the new one, or it may just be forced out of the opposite hole as the new pipe is drawn into place. If the pipe can be repaired, a liner is pulled in. Once in place, it is inflated, allowed to dry, and creates a new pipe within the old one.

Benefits of Trenchless Technology

Thanks to trenchless technology, you are not going to experience the same level of disruption to your property that you would if you had to excavate the pipe entirely through conventional methods. This is great news not only for homeowners looking to preserve their landscaping, but also for those looking to have the job done in a timely fashion. A faster turnaround with less follow-up work means reduced service costs, as well as greater convenience.

If you notice soggy spots in your yard, your water bills rising without any changes to your usage habits, or drains continually backing up throughout your home, you should contact our professional plumbers right away. The issue may not seem like an immediate emergency, but ignoring problems with your drain and sewer line can result in extremely costly damages, and you may wind up with an unhygienic situation on your hands.
