Many of us dread the prospect of needing work done on our sewer pipes, and it’s not just because of the cost. Indeed, the very idea of having the garden dug up in order to carry out the necessary repairs can be upsetting, especially for keen gardeners. Happily, there is now a new approach which can remove the need for this major disruption.
What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
As the name suggests, trenchless sewer repair means that work is carried out without the need for a large trench to be dug. Instead, modern technologies such as drain lining are used to carry out necessary repairs whilst minimising disruption to homeowners and businesses. For those needing work to be done to their sewer pipe lining Solihull, or other built up urban areas, this is a dramatic improvement.
And it certainly seems that a variant of the trenchless sewer approach will be a popular choice for new developments, as highlighted by Yorkshire Water’s decision to use this technology in their latest scheme. You can learn more about the project at.
When Is It Needed?
Many of the older sewer pipes are made from porous materials such as clay or cast iron and are vulnerable to tree roots growing into them. Cast iron sewer pipes are also at risk from corrosion and can often crack or break entirely. Other problems can arise from blockages built up over many years of use.
If you have a problem with your pipes, it makes sense to contact a professional at specialist sites such as www.wilkinson-env.co.uk/sewer-repairs-drain-lining-concrete-cutting/drain-repairs/drain-repairs-solihull to determine whether a trenchless sewer repair is suitable.
The Benefits Of Trenchless Sewer Repairs
Of course, the key advantage of choosing a trenchless sewer repair is that it will largely spare your garden or drive from being dug up to create a large access trench. Instead, the engineer will make one or more small entry points, or use an access chamber in order to reach your sewer pipe. This means the entire process is cleaner and more convenient for the home or business owner. There is also no need to wait for permissions or assessments that typically accompany digging a traditional trench for access. With less work required, trenchless sewer repairs also have a lower environmental impact, and the work carried out can last for up to 100 years.
