Drain Pro Plumbing Inc., one of the top Plumbing Kent companies in the populous area of King County in Washington state, is now offering trenchless sewer repair services as a preventative maintenance measure to repair old pipes before they break, or to replace ones that have already been damaged too far.
Raman Singh, owner of Drain Pro Plumbing Inc. said, “Trenchless sewer repair allows us to go in and add a PVC liner to your existing plumbing line without having to dig up your entire yard, driveway or street as you normally would have to. This is both far more efficient and cost effective.” Singh added, “A lot of homeowners need new pipes but are hesitant to spend thousands of dollars, understandably. We’re proud to now offer this solution that saves time and money for them, and will make their sewer pipes last longer.”
While any medium to large city in the United States will likely have an expansive sewer system with hundreds or thousands of homes connected to it, your ability to utilize it is only as good as the pipes and lines that connect you to the sewer. Although sewers have been around since the sixth century BCE in Rome, the technology used in them has advanced considerably, especially in the past few decades with better materials like PVC.
If you are a homeowner in the United States or elsewhere in the world, there’s a good chance that you benefit from having a connection to your city’s sewer system right now. While many rural areas still rely on septic tanks that do not connect to the greater grid, which have to be pumped in a special way and are entirely separate from a larger system, every home and business still needs a way to transport waste into the sewer or septic system safely and reliably.
If toilet waste, garbage disposal refuse, and other waste is not properly disposed of or moved into a sewer or septic system, it can have very serious consequences for your family’s health and make your appliances that connect to drains useless, as they clog up more and more with no drain left clear. Modern PVC sewer pipes are unlikely to leak on their own, and can last for quite a long time without maintenance. However, as Singh told us, “Many homes’ sewer lines built before 1970 in the United States were made with older materials that are prone to cracking and leaking.”
For instance, despite being one of the most populous and technically advanced areas to live in the United States, many of the cities in the Seattle and King County area have thousands of homes using sewer systems that were built with poor materials, like clay and concrete which are now becoming compromised due to age. Thankfully, trenchless sewer repair methods now allow plumbers like Drain Pro Plumbing Inc. to reline these older pipes with PVC, effectively replacing them. If the pipe is too far gone to hold a liner, trenchless methods also allow plumbers like Singh to burst the old pipe intentionally so that it can be replaced entirely, which is still faster and cheaper than traditional methods of pipe removal.
