Question:
Will trenchless installation save money over open cut trenching?
Answer:
Yes. Every day more utilities realize the advantages of trenchless technology. More trenchless projects are being installed than in the past because of cost savings. Savings result from quicker installations, faster permitting and design time, fewer disruptions to business and residents, less damage to parks, trees and landscaping and less disturbance to road beds (and subsequent road repair).

Question:
Is cured in place pipe strong?
Answer:
Yes. Millions of linear feet of cured in place materials have been installed worldwide. They have withstood every corrosive environment plus the test of time. Billions of dollars have been saved because excavation was eliminated.

Question:
How large of an access area is needed for trenchless replacement?
Answer:
Our techniques can be launched through a cleanout. These techniques keep digging to a bare minimum, which saves money. Our system can also start and stop anywhere in the line which will reduce your material cost and make the job more affordable.

Question:
Will there be a reduction in pipe flow?
Answer:
No. Cured in place pipe actually increases flow capacity because the new pipe is much smoother than old clay and concrete pipe.

Question:

Yes. Cured in place materials mold to the host pipe. The new seamless pipe prevents infiltration and exfiltration, restores structural integrity, and eliminates joints that can weaken and allow root intrusion.

Question:
Friends and neighbors have told me that the best way to protect my landscaping during a sewer repair job is to hire a contractor who specializes in Trenchless Sewer Line Repair, can you tell me why go with the trenchless method?
Answer:
Trenchless sewer replacement is convenient, economical, and time saving. Today with aging pipes, calcification, and tree root intrusion, sewer line failures have become a major problem for home and business owners.

However, with Trenchless sewer repair and replacement, replacing a sewer line has become much easier and faster. Trenchless sewer replacement is a technologically advanced method to replace a damaged sewer line but is also the most cost-effective method to get it repaired.
