If there’s one thing you won’t believe about trenchless pipe repair, it’s that people are still using the traditional method of sewer replacement to fix their homes when there’s a problem. Here’s why.
Too few people know about it. – First of all, not many people know about trenchless pipe repair. This system of fixing and replacing pipes has been around for about 15 years, and yet, according to a poll by Angie’s List, about 78% of “no dig” sewer technology or trenchless pipe lining.
Yet, it’s the exact option they want. – When a sewer pipe breaks, it means that the homeowner’s landscape is going to have to be torn up… usually. Trenchless pipe repair can preserve a homeowner’s lawn, a benefit that 73% of consumers say they’d pay more for. After all, isn’t that what it means to be trenchless? If you want to preserve your lawn, trenchless is the way to go, but that’s not all…
Best of all, it costs less. – Yep. That’s right. Trenchless pipe repair actually costs less than the traditional method, even though people would be willing to pay more for it. It’s cleaner, safer, and it usually saves homeowners about 40% in comparison. Plus, homeowners will save in the long run, too. See, when you fix your pipes the traditional way, you set yourself back up for the same exact problem 10 to 15 years down the line. Trenchless pipe repaired pipes have a life expectancy of about 100 years.
So yes, the most unbelievable thing about trenchless pipe repairs is that more people don’t know about them. This method can help a homeowner preserve their precious landscape, and actually costs less than the alternative.
