If you are a homeowner, chances are that you have had to deal with one issue or another. From roof leaks to broken windows, the repairs needed on your home never seem to end.

One type of repair that can’t be stalled is sewer replacements or repairs. The health and sanitation of your family is at stake, as well as the privilege of receiving potable water, showering, and disposing of ones waste. Sewer repairs must be dealt with right away, especially to protect against further damage and to save as many expenses as possible.

When you visualize sewer repair, you probably get nightmarish visions of torn of lawns and offensive odors permeating the neighborhood. But did you know that there IS another way? If you are like 78% of respondents to an Angie’s list poll, you haven’t heard of “no dig” sewer technology. It is time now to revolutionize your understanding of how sewer repair can work.

Trenchless pipe repair only requires two access points — one on each side of the pipe — through which a skilled technician is able to insert either a camera to make a diagnosis, a strong jet of water to clear out blockages or clean out the drain, or something called a CIPP.

A CIPP, or cured-in-place-pipe, is the key to the revolutionary technology that makes trenchless sewer repair and sewer cleaning possible. It is a jointless, seamless pipe that is inflated within the offending pipe and then allowed to cure in place right there, effectively rehabilitating or completely replacing the broken pipe.

CIPP has a 50 year lifespan — that’s the same as their traditional counterparts. Its no wonder that U.S. trench less technology is enjoying and upward growth trend — it’s already captured about narly half of the $3.4 billion market for sewer line rehabilitation, and about an eigth (12.9%) of the $1.5 billion spent on repairing potable water pipes.

Even though you probably haven’t heard of it, trenchless sewer replacement and repair will soon be all the rage. If your home is 20 years or older, consider getting a trenchless pipe repair and reap the rewards!
