The Modern Technology in Sewer Repairs
There are plumbers ready to help your residential or commercial sewer repairs. Nowadays, these plumbers are using the new technology and video inspections to identify your sewer problems in a fast and efficient manner. Usually, we see damages caused by the old way of repairing sewers, and we do not like the site of it. Cracks on your sewer lines, root intrusion or a sewer line that is already collapsed, can be easily viewed with the use of video inspection without the consequence of damaged property. Video inspection is attained by attaching a minute camera to the end of an auger line.
There is another new method called the trenchless technology, that allows plumbers to conduct repairs one point to either end of the line through the two small access points. This method offers a faster repair, with less disruption to your driveway, landscaping or yard, since plumbers do not need to uncover your whole sewer system. For several years, when there is a sewer line repairs, it would mean excavating the line in large scale. The old method proved to be costly and a long process, leaving you with a destroyed driveway or yard that needs another repair. Most of the time, it is more costly to replace your landscape, repair your driveways or your yard, than the actual repair costs of your sewer repair. Thus, the modern technology in sewer repairs has an edge in terms of how fast it can be done and with less cost involved.
In a trenchless sewer repair, you are offered with two kinds of options which are the pipe relining and pipe bursting. With pipe bursting method, as the new pipe is pulled through, the old pipe undergoes bursting.
On the other hand, pipe relining involves putting a fiberglass liner inside the damaged pipes, instead of tearing the old pipe apart. The pipes are thus sealed and this will give the pipes a longer life with the kind of work and details applied.
So when you think you have a damaged sewer system, it is good to contact a professional plumber with the knowledge and equipment of the no dig technology. This new trenchless method is actually becoming popular nowadays in solving sewage and water line problems. Professional plumbers of today can easily pinpoint your sewer problems with the use of these no-dig technology and highly advanced video cameras. This system is advantageous especially to the homeowners who will not see their beautiful gardens being destroyed. With these new technologies, sewer repairs are now more efficient, faster and less costly compared to the traditional way of repairing our sewer lines.
