It used to be that a plumbing crew would have to spend days tearing up a yard from the house to the street to replace a sewer line. Now, with our Video Camera Technology we can easily locate the problem and stop the leaks with a new pipe. This service is offered by the expert technicians at Pinky’s Plumbing and is called Trenchless Repair.
Trenchless methods came on the market for residential homes about 10 to 15 years ago, but many consumers are still unaware that they’re an option. And because sewer pipe replacement decisions are often made when an emergency situation arises, it limits time to do important research. The best part of this method is it makes minimal digging possible. Traditional methods can be disruptive, displacing landscaping and hardscaping, and even forcing unlucky homeowners to dig up garages, driveways and decks when their lines run beneath them. But for those looking to bypass the backhoe this is a good option.
Experts say it’s a good idea to have your sewer line inspected with a camera made for this purpose before you purchase a home. That way, you can make an informed decision and budget for future repairs or replacement. Tacoma has begun requiring an inspection before selling a home.
