Expert Trenchless Sewer Line Repair in the Greater Seattle Area
The expense and inconvenience of repairing underground sewer pipes with conventional excavation methods can be high and really hard on your property’s improvements (lawn, walkways, flowerbeds, etc.). Fortunately, Master Bore’s trenchless sewer line repair can drastically reduce the time, cost and landscape disruption by drilling out and replacing your sewer line from just one above-ground access point. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms of sewer line failure, give us a call right away.
Lush or Soggy Areas on Your Lawn
Your lawn can help you identify sewer and water line problems. If areas of your lawn are especially lush and green compared to surrounding areas, one of your lines may be broken and leaking. If the area gets especially saturated it will turn soggy and, if caused by a broken sewer line, begin to smell bad. This also opens your yard to a whole host of problems with rodents or insects that may also find their way indoors.
Sewer Gas Smell
There should never be any odors coming from your sewer line if it’s in good health. When there are cracks or openings in the line, it’s common to begin smelling sewer gas.
Slow Drains in the House
Experiencing slow draining in multiple fixtures throughout your home or business could be a symptom of cracks or tree root intrusion in your sewer line. Our advanced imaging technology can determine the cause of your issue without tearing up your landscaping. We can then recommend the least disruptive repair solution.
Sewer Pipeline is Just Plain Old
Nothing lasts forever, and your sewer line and other underground utilities are no exception. Your systems deteriorate with age and use, especially if made of cast iron pipe. It can be difficult to determine the exact age of your piping, especially if you aren’t the original owner of the property. But if your home or building is over 50 years old, it may be worth getting a sewer line inspection to be on the safe side — especially if no repair work has ever been done.
Benefits of Trenchless Sewer & Waterline Repair
The pros at Master Bore have an admitted bias in favor of trenchless sewer line repair. We know the great benefit it provides for our customers over traditional repair methods.
- Reduced Repair Time
One of the most time-consuming lements of traditional sewer line repair is the amount of digging needed to reach the malfunctioning area. Trenchless solutions require a minimal amount of digging – only one or two small holes – saving a lot of time and expense. Repair can usually be done in one day with less labor to accomplish the same result. Traditional sewer repair methods can take up to several days or even weeks for really big jobs.
- Environmentally Friendlier
Less disruption of the surrounding environment means less ecological damage. Two small holes in the ground disturb plant life less than digging trenches, and less digging means lower risk of unearthing any existing ground toxins. This is especially true in city environments where old contaminants are more common.
- Avoidance of Damage To Surrounding Areas
As mentioned above, traditional sewer repair methods can require extensive amount of excavation work, especially if your pipe is older and has problems in multiple areas. Trenchless sewer line repair doesn’t require trenching and excavation of large amounts of surrounding landscaping, saving you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in relandscaping cost.
- Extension of the Lifespan of Your Sewer System
One common misconception about trenchless repair is that its lower-quality sewer line repair than traditional methods. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Trenchless utilizes the latest technologies which can last for decades; often even longer than your initial installation!
