Project: Broadview Trenchless Repair
SEWER REPAIR NORTH SEATTLE
(Sewer Repair North Seattle, specifically in Broadview, WA)
Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement
- New pipe pulled under concrete walkway
- 135° Turn
- Add new pipe for new bathroom addition
REASONS TO REPLACE:
- This original concrete pipe from 1948 had completely crumbled out in one section
- An 8″ rootball had grown into a nearby joint
- Several cracks present in exposed concrete
Owner was very happy with the outcome and we recommended putting in a Y for future expansion of their line to accommodate a detached dwelling unit.
How it Works
Trenchless sewer repair is carried out by inserting a flexible lining into the existing sewer pipe. The lining is then inflated, forcing it against the interior of the pipe and effectively creating a new pipe within the old one. This new pipe is strong, durable and seals any cracks or leaks in the existing sewer pipe.
Advantages of Trenchless Sewer Repair
Trenchless sewer repair offers several advantages over traditional excavation methods. It is a quicker process, with most jobs completed in just one day. It is also less disruptive, as there is no need for excavation, reducing the impact on gardens, driveways and other landscaping. Additionally, it is a cost-effective solution, as there is no need to pay for excavation, backfill or restoration of surfaces.
Trenchless sewer repair proved to be a highly effective and efficient solution for repairing damaged sewer pipes in this North Seattle home. With its quick completion time, reduced disruption, and cost-effectiveness, it is quickly becoming the preferred method for sewer repair in the area.
