Plumbing is one of the oldest technologies on the planet, dating back to at least 2500 B.C. It’s also one of the most important, with an entire trade dedicated to it, with professional plumbers skilled in all manner of plumbing situations.
One of the newest and preferred methods of plumbing is the “trenchless pipe” version. These are preferred because of the lack of digging that is required in order to perform the job, especially for trenchless pipe repair. Unlike traditional plumbing repair, this is a little more complicated than your traditional home plumbing and may require a professional familiar with the technology.
If you do choose to hire a professional for your trenchless pipe repair, here are some of the benefits you can expect.
- Minimal Resources Used
It may seem like the initial costs of a trenchless repair are equal, or even greater, than that of a traditional plumbing repair, but when you take multiple factors into account, that quickly appears to be false. These factors are time, labor, and post-repair costs.
Trenchless is also more green than traditional options, as you use the broken and damaged piping as a skeleton for the new pipes in most instances. No resource wasted.
- Little Labor Needed
Unlike with traditional methods of pipe repair, which can mean a lot of labor-intensive work like digging up piping and other aspects, trenchless has a far less initial labor investment. Your pro-plumber will not have to dig at all, they just need access to the entry points on the pipes.
- Longer Lasting Repair
The modern pipe repair and replacement methods don’t use the metal and plastics of the past, which had a higher degree of needing replacement or breaking. Instead, there are perma-liner and epoxy resins, which have a higher performance and can last longer than 50 years in some instances.
There are, of course, other benefits like the removal of the landscaping fees from not having to dig, and the convenient nature of trenchless piping technology because you don’t have to relocate and disrupt your day due to the work needing to be done.
