The Benefits of Trenchless Technology

Friday, July 11th, 2014

There was a time, really not so long ago, when the idea of repairing or replacing a sewer line was enough to make your average homeowner cower in the corner. Modern technology, specifically trenchless technology, has taken much of the headache out of such services, though. You see, with trenchless technology, our plumbers are able to repair and replace sewer, lines faster and with less disruption to your property and convenience than ever before. To learn more about trenchless technology, or to schedule sewer line repair or replacement in Phoenix, AZ, call the experts at The Trusted Plumber. Here is some information to get you started.

Why Consider Trenchless Technology?

Your sewer line is responsible for the disposal of waste water from your home, including waste from your kitchen and bathroom. Needless to say, problems with a sewer line are a major inconvenience to day to day life. They can also lead to seriously unsanitary conditions if not dealt with as quickly as possible. Because your sewer line is buried beneath the ground on your property, diagnosing a problem with the pipe, as well as repairing or replacing it, used to require that a trench be excavated along the length of the line. Anything sitting above the line was torn up and broken apart. This made an already inconvenient service even worse. Fortunately, when you work with us, you can take advantage of quality trenchless sewer line repair and replacement services.

If your sewer line is deemed salvageable, we can repair it from the inside out. Two small pits are dug, one at either end of your sewer line. An inflatable liner can then be pulled into the line, inflated, and allowed to harden. This creates an interior seal without the trouble of removing the line entirely. If your sewer line is beyond the point of repairs, we can replace it in much the same way. A conical head is pulled through the old pipe, and a new one dragged in its place. The damaged pipe is either burst or forced out the opening at the end of the line. In either case, a new sewer line is already in place.

You can count on us to do the job right. Our outstanding plumbers have the training and experience to handle any job that you could send their way.
