We at Snowbridge have noticed various misinformation about trenchless pipe repair in Breckenridge, CO. We understand there's a lot to learn, especially for first-time homeowners. Today, we're going to take a magnifying glass to some of the widespread myths to see if they stand up to scrutiny.
Myth #1: It's More Expensive
Our first myth is a tricky one. On the surface, it's correct. The upfront cost of trenchless pipe replacement is typically higher than that of conventional excavation. But this is because the technology being used by technicians for trenchless repairs is more modern and specialized.
The claim of greater overall costs doesn't hold water for long, though. Traditional sewer repairs involve extensive digging to access the pipe in need of repairs. Putting the ground back in place, repairing the area directly above it, and restoring wiring and appliances to working order come with steep price tags. All of these expenses are circumvented entirely by trenchless options.
Myth #2: Trenchless Repairs Aren't Flexible
Many people claim that trenchless sewer replacement and repair aren’t versatile solutions compared with excavation. They say that they can harm surrounding appliances during installation. However, this is entirely false.
Different trenchless methods exist to suit a variety of situations. Trenchless pipe lining, for example, replaces the old pipe by using a super-heated epoxy solution that forms an entirely new pipe inside of the old one. Pipe bursting, meanwhile, uses bursting rods and guidance tools to literally destroy the old pipe by pushing it into the surrounding soil from the inside. These methods are non-invasive and disruptive, making them ideal and cost-effective for both residential and commercial properties.
