The thought of having our lawns, gardens, or even homes subject to the will of heavy machinery or equipment can be, literally, earth-shattering. But, unfortunately, the need for belowground maintenance on our homes is sometimes unavoidable. However, whatever the culprit when we recognize the symptoms of plumbing system damage, we can breathe easier knowing that there is now another less invasive option of pipe repair than the traditional method of dig-and-replace. Trenchless pipe repair is an exciting modern technology with many benefits, and C. Lee Services near Akron, Ohio, specializes in professionally passing on these benefits to you.
1. Less Invasive Trenchless pipe repair is, often most importantly, less invasive than traditional methods. While damaged below ground plumbing previously meant creating large trenches with heavy equipment to tear out and replace old piping, trenchless repair uses HammerHead® point repair equipment that accesses your piping through a single small opening. This equipment then injects an inflatable tube coated with resin, which is inflated, coating and sealing off any damaged areas in your plumbing and creating a new, durable and long-lasting interior within your pipes.
2. Fast Repair Times As a less invasive method, trenchless pipe repair is often much faster than the traditional alternatives. First, a small waterproof camera is inserted belowground to assess and determine the extent of damage. Then, when the problem is pinpointed, trenchless pipe repair technologies can often fix the damage in a matter of hours to days instead of days to weeks.
3. Minimal Cost In addition, the lesser amount of time invested often makes trenchless pipe repair much cheaper than competitive methods. With a minimal amount of equipment and no new piping needed, C. Lee Services’ trenchless pipe repair ensures that your dollars won’t go to waste.
4. Less Waste and Impact on Environment By eliminating the large amounts of dirt and fill waste which are often created in excavations, trenchless technologies are much more efficient and less wasteful than traditional methods. By utilizing and fixing existing infrastructure, trenchless technologies proves that cheaper and greener can go hand in hand.
