As a homeowner, you are responsible for the well being of the property. This responsibility includes the sewer line, an often overlooked and largely misunderstood component that plays a large role in the livability of your home. Since the sewer line is buried somewhere in the yard, it is out of sight and typically out of mind, so-to-speak. However, it is something that you need to be fully aware of. If your neighborhood is on a public sewer then you are responsible for the part of the sewer line that runs from inside your house to the main pipe that runs under your street.
If your Baltimore home has a septic system then you are responsible for the entire thing. In essence, the sewer line runs from the interior of your property to a large storage tank that is buried in your yard. Whether you’re on sewer or septic, if there is a clog in the pipe or a break in the sewer line, it is up to you to have it fixed. At that point it is extremely important to contact a professional before any further damage occurs. Before you do it is important to be aware of the reasons why trenchless sewer pipe lining in Baltimore, MD is the best option.
1: Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining is Cost Effective
Trenchless sewer pipe lining is by far the most cost effective method of fixing your problem. Unlike the traditional technique it does not require any heavy-duty excavation. Instead of digging a humongous trench to expose the sewer line for repair, the plumbing company only needs to dig one small access hole at the end of the sewer line. A high-tech machine is then used to line the existing pipe with an epoxy. Once the epoxy dries, (or cures-in-place for a more technical term) a brand new pipe is formed. Since the plumbing company does not need to perform a lot of expensive excavation, and does not need to spend resources removing the existing pipe for replacement, it is a far more cost effective option for the homeowner.
2: Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining is Fast
Typically speaking, trenchless sewer pipe lining can be completed from start to finish in as little as one day. The traditional method can take upwards of two weeks on average. As they say, time is money. In addition, by going trenchless your plumbing system will only be out of operation for a very short period of time. In essence things will get back to normal a lot faster.
3: Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining Stands the Test of Time
Trenchless sewer pipe lining lasts for approximately fifty years. Once the job is complete you will no longer need to worry about further repairs to the sewer pipe for an extremely long period of time. Chances are that within fifty years you will have sold the house.
4: Trenchless Sewer Pipe Lining Requires No Additional Work
Once the trenchless sewer pipe lining job is complete, it is only a matter of filling in the small access hole. Typically the plumbing company will take care of this for you. When less advanced plumbers use the traditional method they will fill in the large trench, however it is the homeowner’s responsibility to fix the landscaping that the contractor ruined.
