The Modern Technology in Sewer Repairs
Plumbers are the go to experts when you need to repair your sewers in your residence or in your offices. These experts are using today a state of the art technology with video inspections in order to pinpoint the problems, immediately and efficiently, in your sewers. People do not like the damages that go with the old method of sewer line repairs. With the video inspection, cracks on sewer lines, root intrusion or a collapsed sewer line can be easily seen without damaging the lines. This is done with the use of a tiny camera attached to the end of the auger line.
Another technology allows the plumbers to repair two small access points with either one on either end of the line, and this is called trenchless technology. With this system, your entire sewer line does not need to be uncovered because of the efficient repair that does not need for your yard, landscaping or driveway to be disrupted. The old way in repairing sewer lines would involve large scale of excavation. This past way of sewer repair was a long and expensive process considering that after the repair you will have another repair to be done because of your damaged driveway or yard or landscape. In fact, the cost in repairing your driveways, yards, and landscape would be much higher than the sewer repair itself. These conditions give the new technology in sewer repairs an advantage in terms of efficiency and cost.
With a trenchless sewer repair, two kinds of choices are given and these are the piple relining and pipe bursting. With pipe bursting method, as the new pipe is pulled through, the old pipe undergoes bursting.
Pipe relining differs from pipe bursting in the sense that this method does not split the old pipe apart, and instead, fiber glass lining is placed inside the destroyed pipe. The pipes are thus sealed and this will give the pipes a longer life with the kind of work and details applied.
It is thus advisable, that when your sewer system is faulty, get a professional plumber who specializes in the new trenchless method. Note that the no dig technology in solving sewage and water line related concerns are now getting popular. Those professional plumbers who are adapting to the no-dig technology and also using highly advanced video cameras, are giving more efficient jobs in a fast manner. With this new system, homeowners are more happy to know that their properties will not get damaged in the process of the sewer repairs. This new method is a fantastic way to replace the old method because it is now faster, easier and less costly.
