Solve Winter Sewer Repair with Trenchless Technology

Cold weather is officially here in Glenview, IL, which means that the ground becomes frozen and the whole notion of digging up your yard becomes too difficult to contemplate. Unfortunately, treating a problem with your sewer line used to mean dealing with it regardless, or at least it used to. A sewer breach in the dead of winter was one of the more serious issues a homeowner could confront, and digging through that dirt to get to the problem meant days of work and considerable expenses. But recently, all those issues have become a thing of the past. The advent of trenchless technology means that you can solve sewer repair much more readily, even in the winter when cold weather and freezing ground makes it all so difficult. Here’s a quick look at how it all works.

No Digging

The biggest problem with a breach or a clog in the sewer line in the past was that the plumber couldn’t reach it to make an assessment, or repair the issue without uncovering the entire line. Trenchless technology ends all of that. It starts with the assessment, which can now be conducted with seismic detectors and miniature video cameras small enough to run down your system on a line. With an accurate assessment provided by those devices, the plumber can then dig just a small pair of holes in the ground, then run a seal, industrial plumbing snake, replacement pipe, or whatever else is needed directly into the problem area to fix it.

The Results

As a result, the problems of frozen ground are side-stepped and the operation itself can be completely much more rapidly than it might have otherwise. It requires fewer personnel too, and the results are often just as effective or more so than they might have been in the old days. The issue gets fixed, and you save yourself a lot of money and hassle in the bargain.
