There are various advantages to trenchless sewer line replacement. These benefits have many homeowners choosing trenchless pipe replacement over traditional.

IS TRENCHLESS SEWER LINE INSTALLATION REALLY MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT?
Anything billed as “traditional” is usually dated and has been improved upon. When it comes to replacing sewer or water line pipes, the traditional method of excavation is much more time-consuming. There’s a lot of equipment, machinery, and labor involved.
Comparatively, trenchless sewer line replacement doesn’t require the invasive excavation of the traditional method. Nor does it involve the same degree of equipment, time, or labor. This in and of itself makes trenchless pipe replacement much more efficient.
Trenchless sewer replacement also leaves much less of a carbon footprint than standard excavation. Your landscaping doesn’t look like a bomb went off and there’s much less cleanup at the project’s conclusion.
HOW CAN TRENCHLESS PIPE REPLACEMENT BE MORE COST-EFFECTIVE WHEN IT’S MORE EXPENSIVE?
Yes, trenchless sewer replacement is significantly more expensive than the standard method of pipe replacement. The cost of trenchless replacement can be as much as 50% higher.
However, there are added costs associated with traditional pipe replacement that are TBD (to-be-determined) at the time you get the initial pricing for a traditional sewer line replacement. These costs include – but aren’t limited to – landscaping rebuilding or repair, driveway or sidewalk demolition and replacement, patio rebuilding, and other possibilities depending on the piping’s location.
Needless to say, these costs accrue over time. This is why you need to weigh the up-front higher initial cost of trenchless pipe replacement vs. the additional costs associated with the traditional method. So much of the added costs are tied to unnecessary work and exertion that are avoidable with trenchless plumbing replacements.
CAN A TRENCHLESS SEWER LINE REPLACEMENT REDUCE MY WATER BILL & IS IT DURABLE?
Trenchless replacements are much better in terms of water transportation efficiency. Lines aren’t connected by piping joints. It’s just one continuous sewer line replacing the former ones. This makes these replacement lines much less vulnerable to a water leak or pipe burst. Events where gallons of water can be wasted, which would spike your water bill.
This is much more durable and sturdy piping that can withstand tree roots and other underground disturbances. Not only does this durable piping keep your water bills in check, but it will also reduce the cost and need of any repairs down the road. This equates to outstanding long-term efficiency.
