Have you recently experienced the smell of raw sewage in or around your residential, commercial, or industrial real estate? Are there puddles in your yard, driveway, or parking lot even though it has not rained in the past week or two? Perhaps raw sewage and wastewater has invaded the interior of your home, place of business, or investment property through the toilets, water faucets, or drains? If you answer yes to any of the questions as listed above than you may very well be having a major issue with your sewer system.
Although it is an unfortunate part of owning real estate you are certainly not alone. Tens of thousands of properties in the Roy, Utah area require a major sewer repair, system overhaul, or complete replacement each and every year. This holds especially true if your property is over forty years old. Sewer pipelines tend to chip, crack, break, and rot when exposed to ground conditions along with normal wear and tear at that age. Back then the sewer pipes were manufactured with materials, such as cast iron and clay that are considered inferior by today’s standards.
You need to keep in mind that it is extremely important to stay calm, cool, and collected when a sewer related disaster strikes. Although that is a whole heck of a lot easier said than done being informed of all of your options ahead of time certainly goes a long way in keeping the panic at bay. Plumbing contractors have been incorporating the use of the traditional sewer repair process in Roy, Utah since they dug the holes by hand with shovels. That being said technology has now replaced excavation as the best way to fix a broken sewer pipeline.
Thankfully the trenchless sewer repair method was invented approximately fifteen years ago. It does not require the excavation of a large and destructive trench in order to reach the sewer pipeline for repairs or even a full replacement. With trenchless sewer repair the plumbing contractor can reach the entire sewer system through one or two small access points located at the beginning and or end of the sewer pipeline. High-tech machines and methods allow the plumbing contractor to perform the work without the need to see, let alone expose the sewer pipes.
Trenchless sewer repair does not ruin your expensive landscaping and hardscaping meaning your lawn, trees, shrubs, flowers, driveway, patio, walkway, sidewalk, or parking lot will stay intact during the process. In addition the procedure can take as little as one day to complete from start to finish. As a reference point, the traditional excavation method can take multiple weeks to complete. Perhaps the best aspect of the trenchless sewer repair approach is the fact that it is approximately fifty-percent more cost effective than the traditional excavation method. Just image what you could do with all of the money you will save.
