The Modern Technology in Sewer Repairs
Residential and commercial sewers that need repair can be best attended to by hiring plumbers. The problems of your sewers can be pinpointed quickly and efficiently by plumbers of today using the modern technology and video inspections. People do not like the damages that go with the old method of sewer line repairs. The use of video inspection is a good way to see cracks in your sewer lines, or root intrusion, or a collapsed sewer line without destroying your sewer system. With the use of a tiny camera being attached to the end of an auger line, plumbers can achieve their video inspection.
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. In the past, repairs of sewer systems have to do 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.
The trenchless sewer repair have two types of options and these are pipe relining and pipe bursting. In pipe bursting, the old pipe undergoes bursting apart while the new pipe is inserted.
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. With the fiberglass lining, the pipes are sealed and this could last for several years, especially with the details and how the work was done.
When you discover that your house is suffering from a faulty sewer line, it is recommended that you get in touch with a plumbing service that has the new trenchless technology. The no-dig method is becoming more of the practice among professional plumbers in solving sewage and water line problems. Plumbing services who are updated with the trenchless method and have highly advanced cameras, are performing their diagnosis about sewer problems in an efficient manner. With this new modern option, household members who do not like to see their properties destroyed, are most happy with the new system. With these new technologies, sewer repairs are now more efficient, faster and less costly compared to the traditional way of repairing our sewer lines.
