There’s an old joke that we have two seasons here in Havertown and Springfield, PA: winter and road repair. You could expand that last part to include “sewer line repair” as well. The cold weather and frozen ground make sewer line repair extremely difficult in the winter, and since our cold season is so long, there is a limited window of opportunity to fix problems with your sewer line. Doing so in the summer can save you a lot of hassle and expense, as can relying on trenchless sewer repair rather than more traditional methods. What are the benefits of trenchless sewer repair? The answers to that question are both simple and powerful.
Trenchless sewer repair works by drilling two holes on either side of the affected pipeline, then sending down and fitting a replacement line in place through those holes. Because we don’t have to excavate the entire sewer line, the job can be done much more quickly – usually in just a day or two – which makes a huge difference if you’re waiting to get your toilet or showers up and running again.
Because trenchless repair doesn’t involve heavy equipment or additional personnel, and because it happens much more quickly than trenched repair, it tends to cost a lot less than it would with more old-fashioned methods. Furthermore, it doesn’t tear up your yard the way a more complicated technique would, saving you from expensive replanting and landscaping costs. And that savings comes without any loss of quality with the repairs themselves: your sewer line will be just as reliable as it was when it was first put in.
The warm temperatures of summer make trenchless sewer repair even easier, so if you feel the time has come to fix a faulty sewer line, call the experts at Wm Henderson Inc. to schedule a consultation today!
