A burst sewer line is a nightmare plumbing scenario for almost every homeowner, and for good reason. Traditionally, sewer line repair was a long and expensive ordeal that oftentimes destroyed a home’s surrounding landscape. Fortunately, there’s an easy (and affordable) alternative. With trenchless sewer line replacement , your plumber can install a brand new sewer line without having to dig up your yard or take up weeks of your life. Read on to learn more about the benefits of trenchless sewer line replacement, and then talk to your Jacksonville plumber to learn if this service is right for you.
In many cases, going the trenchless route can save you thousands of dollars compared to traditional sewer line repair and replacement, particularly in situations where homeowners are responsible for the sewer line up to its connection with the main line. In these cases, traditional trenching would require the added costs of permits and rerouting traffic to dig up the street in front of the property.
Another reasons trenchless sewer line replacement is less expensive is because it’s faster than trenching, which is an added benefit in and of itself. Trenchless sewer line repair and replacement only requires digging two small holes, as opposed to traditional methods which can require days spent just digging up the ground with backhoes and other heavy excavation and trenching equipment.
Expanding on the last point made above, another good reason to go the trenchless route is that this option will prevent your landscape from looking like a war zone after the old sewer line is replaced. Even though plumbers who perform traditional sewer line repair and replacement will usually fill in the trenches when the job is done, it can take a long time for the grass to grow back and look normal, and in some cases trenching might also require trees, shrubs, and flower beds that lay above the sewer line to be dug up.
