How much does a trenchless sewer line repair cost

Finding trouble lurking in a sewer line — in the form of a crack, leak, or tree root invasion — is a pain for a homeowner, but it doesn’t necessarily need to be a moment of worry. With the advent of more advanced plumbing techniques, materials, and tools, plumbing professionals are able to perform modern repair procedures, such as trenchless sewer line repairs, to more quickly and easily address homeowner’s concerns. As more trenchless sewer line repairs are performed in place of the traditional trenched repair method, questions about differences between the methods start to emerge — namely, what are the costs of a trenchless sewer line repair?

The Savings of a Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

Breaking down what a trenchless sewer line repair costs is more easily understood by viewing what it provides to a homeowner in savings. To do this, let’s start by first looking at the impact of the traditional method.

When considering a traditional trenched repair, there are several major expenses that need to be considered along with the repair itself. To begin with, the trench that needs to be dug, and the equipment needed to make the trench, as these costs will be worked into the bill for the entire sewer line repair.

Unfortunately, a homeowner cannot choose the best place to perform a trenched repair — this is left to fate, and wherever the sewer line issue has cropped up. As such, wherever the trench ends up being dug could end up costing a homeowner a significant amount in replaced landscaping or concrete repairs in some cases, should the issue take place under a driveway or walkway.

To create the trench, the professionals will need specialized equipment to perform the task, an operator specifically trained for that equipment, the right conditions in which to be able to dig (it’s difficult to dig during inclement weather), and the need to repeat the process once the repair to the sewer line has been made. All told, it’s exceptionally involved, time-consuming, and ultimately, costly.

During a trenchless sewer line repair, a plumbing professional is able to access the affected sewer line from a minimally invasive access point, without the need of heavy equipment, inspect and perform the repair remotely, and remove the equipment without creating a major disruption to the surrounding area. And because of how the procedure is performed, with much less involved overall, the trenchless repair can be performed much quicker than the trenched repair.

So, how much does a trenchless sewer line replacement cost?

How much is the homeowner’s time and sanity worth? Between time, money, and potential disruption to a homeowner’s space, the trenchless sewer line repair ends up creating significant savings for a homeowner, providing much greater peace of mind knowing that a repair can be performed without tearing up the yard with heavy equipment, for an untold amount of time.
