Trenchless sewer line replacement and repair are often preferred by homeowners for several reasons. First, it is less invasive. The trenchless method only involves digging two pits to pull a new pipe through, minimizing the disruption to surrounding infrastructure and land.
Next, the trenchless method involves less disruption to utilities. With the traditional sewer repair method, sometimes utilities can be disrupted for several hours while the repair work is being done. The trenchless method is less likely to disrupt existing utilities.
Trenchless repair is also more environmentally friendly. This method keeps the old pipe and any sewage in the ground, which creates less waste above the surface. Less digging also means that there is less need to discard old dirt and expose underground toxins.
Finally, trenchless sewer repair takes less time. Generally, routine repair jobs can be completed within just a day or two. By contrast, a traditional repair can take up to three days.
