Avoid the Trenches! Sewer Lining Repair Can Be Done Without A Big Dig!

Do you have cracked sewer pipes under your lawn? Are you dreading the idea of possibly having to have your property destroyed in the effort to install new sewer piping? Fear not. A relatively new technology has emerged that allows for your pipes to be fixed with absolute minimal digging required. Gene’s Water & Sewer, experts in sewer lining for Twin Cities area homes offers this service as a much more efficient, cost effective means of repairing damaged pipes underground, not to mention better flow of waste from your home to the sewer system.

Trenchless technology is a type of subsurface plumbing work that calls for less in the way of trenches. A group of different methodologies, materials, and equipment are utilized to install a sewer lining within the already existing underground piping that will allow for minimal disruption to property and daily activities to home owners.

The ambient-resin based sewer liners are “pull in place,” meaning that instead of having to dig up lawn to access sewer or water pipes to repair or replace them, we simply pull the old liners (in the event of liners already existing within your piping) out and pull the new ones into place. The process and installation of these sewer liners is an altogether easier process than is digging up your property and helps you avoid potentially expensive repairs to get your lawn and driveway back in place. The resin lining may just make it so your pipes never have to be repaired again! The technology is that awesome!

The characteristics of the soil will need to be considered to see if you can have a trenchless sewer lining repair project at your home. If your water table is shallow or your soil is too sandy, you may not be a candidate for trenchless sewer lining repair. Get a hold of us and we will come out to see if your property will allow for this type of plumbing repair at your home. It will save you headaches in the long run!

A pipe within a pipe, the cracks, fractures and bursts that create the need to have a new pipe drawn in to replace the old will become a thing of the past with trenchless sewer liner repair!
