4 Top Benefits of Trenchless CIPP Technology for Sewer Line Repair
When your sewer drain is in disrepair, it can result in a variety of environmental and health risks. Fortunately, there is a solution that is clean, cost-effective, and successful. Often referred to as Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP), trenchless sewer repair technology offers plenty of benefits over traditional sewer drain pipe replacement. While there are too many advantages associated with CIPP sewer line repair to list them all, the following offers a quick look at the 4 top benefits.
1. CIPP tends to be significantly more cost-effective in the long term.
Although the exact cost does vary depending on several factors, including how deep sewers are buried, soil type, and the types of materials used, CIPP is an economical alternative to digging up and manually repairing or replacing worn pipes. For example, no digging requires less equipment and manual labor, which means fewer technicians will be needed to complete the task in a shorter period of time. This cuts down on labor costs. In addition, the material used is much sturdier and better able to withstand the effects of nature, which means it lasts longer resulting in future savings.
2. CIPP is much nicer to your yard and the surrounding infrastructure.
Using the traditional method of replacement, there is a good chance your yard, including plants, trees, shrubs, and even the driveway, may be destroyed (which will also affect how much you spend when you decide to replace them). On the other hand, CIPP usually requires just two small holes, if any, to place the liner, which will have minimal impact on your yard’s appearance.
If existing pipes are laid under the road, foundation, or other area with structures already in place, there is a high probability they will be damaged when using traditional measures to reach the pipes. Fortunately, CIPP technology allows you to work around these structures, which will save you the time and money associated with repairing the infrastructure’s damaged areas.
3. CIPP is a more environmentally friendly option.
In addition to minimizing the amount of damage to flowers, trees, etc., the lining used with CIPP technology can prevent breaks and leaks in the lines that can pollute watersheds and even seep into and contaminate groundwater. Also, CIPP requires less equipment, which means little, if any, damage or disruption to the ground’s corridors and results in less energy usage, as well as substantially fewer emissions.
4. Trenchless technology is much more time effective.
Digging up pipes is nothing if not a time consuming process. The simple act of digging can take days by itself, which leaves you unable to use the pipes in your home while the work is being completed. Essentially, you can expect to spend at least a day or two, if not more, in a motel. The repair process using CIPP technology, however, usually takes just a few hours. As soon as the job is complete, your pipes are ready for use.
If your pipes are in need of replacement or repair, you may want to seriously consider all the benefits of CIPP trenchless sewer repair technology.
