Replacing sewer lines can be a big project. It used to be that whatever was above your existing sewer line, including your driveway, steps, landscaping or your favorite trees, would have to be torn out. A trench would then be dug, a foot or two in width, all the way down to the sewer line to expose it. Once the job was completed the trench would be filled in and the soil raked over and seeded, leaving a mound of grassless dirt in your yard or a driveway in need of repair. You can still choose to have your New Hope sewer lines replaced this way, of course. With the trenchless technology available to us today, though, why would you want to?
Modern trenchless technology eliminates the need to expose your sewer line. When you call Resolve Rooter to replace your sewer line with our trenchless technology there are very few steps to the process, and they are minimally evasive to your property.
First we dig two small pits. One is dug at the starting point of the line into your home, and the other at its termination point in before connecting to the city sewer lines. When the job is finished these pits are filled back in. The process leaves so little damage to your property that it is hard to believe a job of this size was even performed on it.
Once the pits are dug it is time to hook up our hydraulic machine. Using about twenty tons of pressure this machine pulls a bursting cone through the existing line, which either bursts underground or is pulled out by the bursting cone. At the same time, the new sewer line is pulled into place by the machine.
Once the new sewer line is in place all that is left to do is cleaning up after ourselves. You can imagine that, compared to the trenching method, cleanup is a breeze after a trenchless sewer line replacement. The pits are filled in and we put down some seed after disassembling the machine that pulled your new sewer line into place.
Trenchless sewer line replacement is not always the most feasible option for this type of job. If you do decide to utilize this technology when you need new sewer or water lines installed in New Hope, call Resolve Rooter. Our team of plumbing professionals will get the job done quickly and conveniently, even by trenchless standards. Call us today for more information.
