If you are facing a major home or commercial building repair it is extremely important to be aware of all of your options prior to contacting a contractor in your area. This advice holds especially true regarding a major sewer pipe repair or replacement. Issue with your sewage system can be amongst the most expensive and downright nerve racking problems that any property owner must deal with. Not only does it take a it take a large chunk out of your bank account, replacing the sewer pipes also causes a major disruption to anyone residing in or working at the property.
For example, when a qualified plumbing contractor is working on the sewage system you simply cannot use the bathroom(s) until they have completed the work. In turn it forces both residents and commercial tenants out of the property during that time frame. That being said, this major disruption should certainly play a key role in your decision of which plumbing contractor to hire. If they are still utilizing the old school Traditional Sewer Pipe Replacement method instead of high-tech Trenchless Pipe Bursting in Pasadena, Texas than you should be aware of a few facts.
Traditional Sewer Replacement
Traditional Sewer Replacement is method that plumbing contractors have been using for years. It involves the use of heavy-duty excavation equipment to literally dig a large trench along the entire length of the sewer line in order to expose the pipe. Not only is this outdated method extremely expensive, it also is enormously time consuming. Once the trench is dug, the pipe is removed and replaced. It can actually take weeks on end to complete the job. Not to mention that once the plumbing contractor is finished with the job it takes both time and money to repair the yard.
In addition, you need to keep in mind that sewer lines run directly under bushes, lawns, flowerbeds, trees, and even pavement. Everything on ground level must be destroyed in order to reach the pipe. That means extensive landscaping work must be performed after the repair to put your yard back in working order. When you calculate all of the costs and time it takes to complete all of the work it becomes more than obvious that it simply does not make sense to hire a traditional sewer replacement plumbing service.
Trenchless Pipe Bursting
Trenchless Pipe Bursting is a technologically advanced method that has been utilized by advanced plumbing contractors over the past decade or so. It does not require the excavation of a large trench along the entire sewer line. Instead only two small access holes are dug at each end of the old pipe. A brand new, one-piece, high-density polyethylene plastic pipe is pulled through the existing sewer pipe. As the new pipe is traveling through the old one it burst the broken pipe in an outward motion. The pieces of the old sewer pipe fall into the ground where they are left to disintegrate.
At this point the new polyethylene plastic pipe literally replaces the old, broken sewer pipe. The two small access holes are then filled in as if they were never there. Perhaps the most incredible aspect of this extremely impressive sewer pipe replacement method is that the entire job can be completed in a day or two at most. That means that your life can get back to normal in the blink of an eye. Trenchless Pipe Bursting is by far the most cost effective and fastest technique of sewer pipe replacement available in the plumbing industry.
