Trenchless sewer repair is an alternative method to traditional sewer repair that doesn’t require digging into the ground, but certain misconceptions regarding this process prevent some homeowners from exploring this option. Arrow Sewer & Drain is an innovator in trenchless sewer repair in north and central New Jersey. Here, we debunk common myths regarding this practice. 

Myth #1: It’s More Expensive 

Trenchless sewer repair, also known as no-dig repair, is an innovative solution, and you may think this means it’s more expensive. Although trenchless sewer repairs may cost more upfront, you’ll save money in the long run. For example, costs for excavation and relocation can hike up the price of traditional plumbing services, but with trenchless repair, you won’t need either. This will help you save money on the labor costs that are needed for traditional sewer repairs. Arrow Sewer & Drain also has financing available to qualified customers that can further reduce their financial burden.

Myth #2: It’s Only Suitable for Certain Repairs

Many customers think trenchless sewer repair can only be done for certain jobs, but this isn’t the case. The team at Arrow Sewer & Drain begins each project with a diagnostic process to determine if trenchless repair is right for the specific problems. Trenchless sewer line repair methods can be used to repair existing sewer pipes that are cracked, broken, or corroded and to replace damaged lines with new piping. The following methods are used for trenchless sewer repair:

  • Pipe bursting: Used when a pipe needs to be replaced. Technicians break the existing pipe apart and run a new one in its place.
  • Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP): Used when a pipe has minor damage. CIPP helps preserve existing lines with a restorative seal.

Although trenchless repair can be used for many projects, it’s not the best solution for every plumbing issue. If you’re curious about whether trenchless sewer repair is viable on your property, the team at Arrow Sewer & Drain can help you understand.

Myth #3: It’s Less Durable

Often, people think trenchless sewer repairs aren’t a long-lasting solution. On the contrary, trenchless repairs use durable, corrosion-resistant materials to repair or replace your pipes and can last up to fifty years. Every trenchless repair service performed by Arrow Sewer & Drain meets our high-quality standards to ensure your satisfaction. 

Myth #4: It’s a Time-Consuming Process

Traditional plumbing repairs can be time-consuming and laborious, and many people assume the same about trenchless sewer repairs. However, trenchless sewer repair is more efficient by nature because it eliminates the need to excavate your property. This vastly decreases the time needed to complete the repair while removing the chances of extensive landscaping damage and disruption.

For eco-conscious consumers, a common concern is that sewer repair is harmful to the environment. Similar misconceptions circulate about trenchless sewer repair, but it’s actually advantageous for ecosystems and vegetation because lawns, plants, and trees won’t need to be removed or dug up for excavation. There’s also less noise and disruption, which benefits the surrounding environment.
