In the past the only way to replace a broken sewer pipe was to dig a huge, ugly, and downright expensive trench that ran along the entire sewer line. Do you know that property owners are the responsible party when it comes to paying for the upkeep, repair, and replacement of the sewer line that is servicing their residential, commercial, and industrial buildings? That means that you had a large, expensive mess on your hands. If your garden, lawn, driveway, deck, sidewalk, or parking lot was in the way it became collateral damage.
Fortunately for property owners a sewer line replacement system that does not require any excavation arrived on the scene approximately a decade ago. Trenchless pipe bursting in Germantown, Maryland has become the best option for homeowners, businesses, and real estate investors that need to replace the existing sewer line without having to destroy their property during the process. Although there are well over one hundred thousand licensed plumbing companies in the United States only a fraction are able to properly execute the trenchless pipe bursting process.
That is why it is so important to contact a plumbing contractor like SPT Pipe. Our company has not only been extensively trained in the latest pipe bursting technology, we also have a great deal of real world experience using it in the field. So what exactly is trenchless pipe bursting and what are the main advantages that this high-tech procedure presents to property owners with a broken sewer line? Let us take a look.
Trenchless Pipe Bursting requires two small access holes, one at each end of the sewer line. A special machine is used to pull a continuous plastic PVC pipe through the existing sewer pipe. The new PVC pipe acts much like a blunt drill. For example, as the new pipe is pulled through the old sewer line it expands. The expansion causes the old pipe to burst into thousands of fragmented pieces. The pieces of the old pipe do not need to be removed. Instead they are left in the ground to rot away. Once the process is complete the new PVC pipe completely replaces the old one.
When the trenchless pipe bursting method is properly used, your sewer system will be back up and running in as little as one day. If you have ever experienced a major sewer system repair in the past than you know exactly how disruptive it can be. The entire water system must be shut down while the work is being performed. All toilets, and water faucets are out of operation for the duration of the project. When a plumbing contractor utilizes the traditional excavation method it can take a week or longer to complete the process.
Can you even imagine living without water at your home or building for that long? In comparison a day to complete the trenchless pipe bursting approach from start to finish seems like an absolute luxury. SPT Plumbing is proud of the fact that we are able to save our customers a significant amount of money. Trenchless pipe bursting costs approximately fifty-percent less than excavating.
