If you are having sewer related issues at your residential, commercial, or industrial real estate the good news is that there are choices on how you can go about having it repaired. Although a great deal of people are only aware of the traditional excavation method there is a far more cost effective and significantly less time consuming process available to property owners in the Ogden, Utah area. In addition, this superior approach is non invasive, meaning it will not destroy your lawn, trees, flowerbeds, mulch beds, shrubs, patio, walkway, sidewalk, driveway, or parking lot.
Unlike the traditional excavation method, Pipe Bursting is a technologically advanced process that does not require any major excavation or order to reach the sewer pipeline for replacement. Long gone are the days when the only way to repair a broken sewer pipe was to dig a large and destructive trench along the entire length of the sewer pipeline. Long gone are the days of sitting idly by as large, loud, and obnoxious machines ruined your expensive landscaping and hardscaping. Last but certainly not least, long gone are the days when it took weeks on end to complete the project.
Instead of a large and destructive trench, pipe bursting only requires a small access point at each end of the sewer pipeline. A high-tech machine incorporates the use of the small access points to install a continuous, one-piece, plastic PVC pipe through the existing sewer pipeline. As the new PVC pipe is being pushed, pulled, or blown through the system the old sewer pipes burst in an outward motion. The fragmented pieces are naturally disbursed into the ground where they are left to harmlessly rot away.
When the process is complete the new plastic PVC pipe sits in the same exact spot as the old broken sewer pipeline that no longer exists. The new sewer pipeline will last well over fifty years, most likely closer to one hundred years. Either way by the time any major repair work is required it will most likely be the next property owner’s responsibility. Trenchless pipe bursting is approximately fifty-percent more cost effective than the traditional excavation method, and the entire process can be completed in as little as one day from start to finish.
The traditional excavation method offers property owners absolutely zero benefits. The only reason that so many plumbing contractors still employ the outdated process is due to the fact that they are either extremely slow to adopt the technology, or simply cannot afford the equipment and training that it takes to make the change. Either way it should not negatively affect your bottom line.
