You Can Repair or Replace Water, Drain or Sewer Pipes Without Destroying Your Landscaping, Driveway, or Patio!
Homes built before 1999 typically have a cast iron or clay pipe sewer drain line. Cast iron, clay and “orangeburg” pipes eventually become compromised due to decay, tree root invasion or settling earth and need to be repaired or replaced before a major leak or a sewage backup occurs.
Traditional pipe repair/replace methods often require heavy-duty equipment, huge piles of dirt from digging big trenches, and ripping up your landscaping, driveway, patio, floors or walls. When completed, contractors may patch the street-cut, replace sidewalks, rough-grade and even deliver topsoil, but you’ll still have to “restore” your property. That can be very costly!
Two options can minimize the damages caused by traditional digging methods, save you thousands of dollars and be completed in as little as one day
1. No Dig – No Damage! Insert a hard-cast lining in your existing line or bore a new line underground from the street to the house.
2. Minimal Dig – Minimal Damage. Only small holes are dug to access the pipe so specialized equipment can pull a new sewer line through existing cast iron or clay pipe.
When Is No Dig- No Damage NOT the Best Solution?
When the sewer line is fully collapsed due to root intrusion or is improperly pitched. Tree roots are the warning sign!
Once your sewer line is compromised, over time it will get worse, eventually collapsing. Taking action when you first experience tree roots before the line collapses will save money, frustration and inconvenience of traditional Dig & Damage solution!
