Many people are not fond of replacing their sewer lines and they have a good reason to be so. This whole process requires much of one's time, effort, and resources. Conventional sewer lines repair involves a lot of digging, which explains the laborious work. So any kind of repair would mean a ruined and dug up lawn or driveway and an unpleasant trench in the front yard. 

Fortunately, there's another alternative for your sewer line problems

Viable Alternative Available

Trenchless is the way to go if you're not a big fan of excavating the yard. There is no underground work involved in trenchless repairs in Salt Lake City or elsewhere.

This alternative does not replace pipes; instead, it uses slip lining, which installs smaller pipes into existing ones. The pipes are rehabilitated and repaired by injecting a sealant or epoxy liner into the damaged pipes. This liner cures quickly and seals the leaks, cracks, and holes in the pipe line.

Pipe bursting is also part of the rehabilitation process. The process involves pushing pipes through a small hole and pulls out the damaged ones through a hole. 

The Advantages of Trenches

In trenchless sewer repair process, there is no creation of new drains, so the water supply is not turned off or re-routed. So you and your family need not worry about a day without water.

Another benefit is that this process applies video inspection and hence any potential issues can also be detected and corrected before it escalates. The only digging focuses on creating more access holes. Once the end of the pipes have access points, future repairs do not require any digging at all. If your home plumbing system goes through this type of rehabilitation process once, it will last much longer than its old conventional counterpart. The water flow will also improve with the rehabilitated pipes.

Improve your home's waterflow without compromising the yard with this alternative. Always ask professional help first to ensure your home's pipes are in good condition.
