When you are a homeowner, there is much care and maintenance involved in taking care of your home and property. Costly maintenance is not something that anyone wants to deal with, but at times, it is necessary. One such type of maintenance is that of your home’s sewer or water pipes.
There can be several reasons that your septic system requires service – an obstruction in the pipe, leaking at the seals or joints, corrosion or cracking. A plumbing professional will need to determine whether or not replacement is required. If you live in or around Pasadena, CA, trenchless sewer repair may be available to you to save money, time and serious disruption of your property.
With regular pipe repair, a trench is dug in your yard and the damaged pipes are fixed within the trench. Using the trenchless method, only one or small sized entry holes are required to access the pipes. After that, one of two different processes are used.
The first process involves using a liner, which is a flexible, resin-coasted tube that is either pulled through or blown into the damaged pipe. It is then inflated and as the resin hardens, it creates a brand new sewer pipe on the inside of the old one. This decreases its size, but only marginally, and does not affect overall flow. Now seamless and jointless, the new pipe will be longer lasting without any worries of joints cracking, leaking, or roots invading through seams.
There is another process that is called pipe-bursting that can also be performed, particularly when there is quite of bit of damage to your original pipe. Using this method, new pipes are inserted through old pipes, thereby cracking the old pipe and pushing the pipe outward. Both processes are very effective as well as durable; choosing one over another depends on your particular situation.
The price for using trenchless processes can be roughly 30- 50 percent more than traditional processes, but because there are no large holes to be dug, this can actually end up costing less. You will not have to pay for teams of workers plus equipment to dig up your yard, driveway, etc. Likewise, you will not have to pay for them to put everything back in place when finished.
Trenchless drain repair technology also saves a lot of time and hassle. Digging only one or two openings, rather than a large, yard-wide one, takes much less time, which means your home will be back to normal again much faster. Plus, you don’t have to endure the inconvenience of your entire yard being dug up and temporarily unusable.
If there may be problem affecting your home’s pipes, you will need to call in a professional to decide if using trenchless pipe repair would work for you and your home. Contact your local Pasadena septic specialist to find out what would be the best choice for you. It wil be determined by the damage to the line, age, and the condition of the line, depth of your pipes, as well as other conditions. If this form of pipe-lining will work for your home, you can possibly be able to save a lot of money, as well as time, which is a huge benefit in itself for any homeowner.
