If your sewer pipes are due for an upgrade, you may be wondering whether trenchless sewer replacement is the right option for you. Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter, expert in trenchless sewer repair in Seattle, WA, lists four ways choosing trenchless solutions can be more beneficial for you.

Minimally Invasive

Traditional sewer replacements involve digging up the yard or pavement, exposing the entire length of the affected sewer line to the open air. While excavation is ideal in some cases, trenchless sewer replacement can be more advantageous as it only uses small access points to insert a pipeline underground and perform the necessary restoration services.

When trenchless pipe lining services are carried out, the damaged pipe is left underground, and there are no byproducts that have to be sent out to the landfill. This makes the process not just minimally invasive but also environmentally friendly.

It’s Less Disruptive

With dig-and-replace methods, you have to endure having your daily routine disrupted while the old pipes are torn out and new ones are installed. If you’re a commercial property owner, you’ll likely have to cease business operations for the time being. But with trenchless sewer replacement, what used to take weeks can often be done in a day or two with little to no disruption to your daily routine.

Moreover, since the new pipes are installed underground, you won’t have to worry about unsightly trenches in your yard.

It’s More Cost-Effective

Replacing a sewer line can be expensive, but trenchless methods are often more affordable because they can be completed by a small crew without using heavy excavation machinery – cutting back on labor costs. Trenchless pipe repair and replacement may also qualify for a tax credit or rebate.

It’s A Long-Term Solution

Sewer lines often suffer from corrosion and cracking, leading to leaks and other problems. Trenchless pipe replacement provides you with a new pipe-within-a pipe that can last up to 50 years.
