Traditional VS Trenchless
Traditional pipe repair generally means digging down to a pipe that have been damaged, cutting out sections, and replacing it with brand new piping. With advances in technology, contractors are now able to replace or simply repair pipe without having to dig a massive trench that disturbs the landscape.
This is known as trenchless pipe repair or no dig pipe repair. Almost every contractor out there today can benefit from this more versatile way of repairing pipe.
The first main benefit that you can expect from trenchless pipe repair is that you don’t actually have to do any serious digging. This means that you won’t have to worry about damaging precious land that would otherwise be expensive to fix. There is virtually no mess involved and clean up is often a breeze.
Another great benefit of trenchless pipe repair is that a pipe can be fixed or replaced in areas that would otherwise be impossible to get to.
As an example, say a sewer needs to be repaired but it is stuck underneath a building. The only two options would be to dig around the entire building and run a fresh new sewer line or to simply replace the broken pipe with a pipe-bursting machine.
Pipe bursting is a form of trenchless pipe replacement. Trenchless pipe repair is a very green technology. You really don’t need to throw dirt and silt everywhere in order to do the job. The beauty is that natural habitats won’t need to be disturbed. We think trenchless pipe repair just makes sense.
