You may have heard about a plumbing repair known as trenchless water line
repair. Though this technology has been around for over 10 years, it is
not well-known by the homeowners who can benefit the most from it. Here
is a look at the
two different water line repair technologies: trenchless and traditional.
Disruption to Your Landscaping
The biggest benefit of choosing trenchless water line repair over traditional
repair is the ability to maintain your landscaping. Traditional water
line repair typically involves digging large trenches in your yard and
possibly into the street in front of your house. These trenches can disrupt
your landscaping by uprooting various trees and plants, and you may have
to dismantle and remove hardscaping structures, as well. Trenchless water
line repair can be done without digging massive trenches and with little
to no damage to your lawn.
Overall Cost to You
The initial repair price of trenchless and traditional trenching can cost
around the same amount. However, traditional trench work can cost more
overall, due to the potential need to restore your landscape. Other potential
costs with traditional trenching may include fees to your city to reroute
traffic or pay for the street in front of your house to be repaired. Your
plumber can offer a full breakdown of what method will be the most cost-effective option.
Length of the Pipe Restoration
In addition to the disruption to landscaping, one of the chief complaints
about traditional water line repair occurs when the job takes too long.
Due to digging up various areas of the yard, possibly even the street
or driveway, traditional methods may take several days to a week or more.
Trenchless technology can typically repair a water line in just a few
hours, rather than a few days.
