Trenchless Sewer Repair Puyallup

Trenchless sewer repair has been around since the forties, but many people are just now hearing about this new way of repairing pipes underground. Trenchless sewer repair is in the name; a trench is essentially a narrow ditch that is dug into the ground without being too invasive like other traditional methods. Most of the methods that people know about are very invasive and require huge piles of dirt to be dug up with very heavy machinery, undoubtedly causing inconveniences while the work is being done including rerouting traffic, leaving big mounds of dirt on your property, and having to pay for everything to be put back together again after your plumber destroys your lawn to get to the pipes underground. Not only is this detrimental to your surrounding property area and value, but it also increases the cost of everything by hundreds to thousands of dollars more due to the work that needs to be done to replace everything that was destroyed in the process of getting to the pipes. This means it is very possible for you to end up paying to repair parts of your neighbor's yard and part of the street along with your own property.  Along with all that invasive damage, your lawn and plant life that was dug up during the work will most likely not look the same afterward and you would have to face the consequences of such a heavily damaged ground. Trenchless repair was created to provide homeowners with an option that was not going to cost them an arm and a leg just to maintain well-working pipes for their homes. Digging a narrow ditch only in the area where the pipe is, allows the surrounding area to stay untouched and ensures minimal damage that does not have to be repaired afterward. Some more pros of trenchless sewer repair include;

  • Minimal damage to the property 
  • Designed to last longer with the pipes used
  • Better for your budget
  • Done in hours rather than days or weeks

Many basic sewer issues can be prevented with proper maintenance and care, and we always recommend following guidelines for annual sewer maintenance and checkups. That said, sometimes a pipe may crack or a mainline may clog even if you've been careful with your sewer system, especially if the pipe materials or style is on the older side as some homes in
Puyallup are. Traditional repairs for these kinds of issues used to almost always require digging up the entire area above the sewer so that the pipes could be accessed and repaired, which took a lot of time to do and was very expensive.

Thankfully, trenchless sewer repair is a new modern technology that can solve many basic sewer breakages and problems. The term "trenchless" is used to describe this technique because as mentioned above, only a small hole must be dug to access part of the sewer line, and the remaining repair work can be done throughout the pipe without having to dig the entire area. This saves time and money for you! If a time comes where your sewer is backing up or a major leak has occurred in your main water line, Pristine Plumbing's trenchless sewer technology and expertise may be an excellent solution to get the issue fixed quickly and simply.
