As the metropolitan areas of the United States grow and become more populated, there is more of an interest to protect investments making the need for trenchless pipe solutions greater. A trenchless approach to installations and repairs permits underground pipeline to be accessed with disrupting or damaging structures at the surface such as buildings, landscaping, and walkways.
Trenchless technology is ideal for installing, replacing, repairing, and maintaining water and sewer pipe systems.
In years past, it would be mandatory to dig a trench using large pieces of equipment and tools leaving areas such as gardens, sidewalks, decks, and patios damaged or destroyed. By using a no-dig approach, these complications and additional costs are eliminated.
Having trees as part of landscaping has many benefits – and detriments. Tree roots can cause major damage to water and sewer lines by growing within the pipes and causing them to crack from the inside out.
However, with trenchless pipe replacement technology you can have peace of mind that if a tree’s roots do damage your water or sewer pipes, they can be replaced with needing to dig a trench and damage your foundation, garage, walkway, landscaping, or deck. This is a proven break-through method and is quickly growing into the standard practice for many underground pipe jobs.
