Sewer repair is a common reason to need a plumber in Tacoma, WA from Jim Dandy Sewer & Plumbing. In some cases, trenchless methods may solve the problem. While the trenchless route is often what homeowners prefer, there are times when traditional excavation is the ideal option. Here are a few instances where excavation would be more beneficial.
Your Pipes Are Severely Damaged
One of the main requirements with trenchless sewer repair in Tacoma, WA is that the affected pipe has to be stable. If your sewer line is severely damaged or if it has collapsed entirely, excavation is usually ideal. This way the damaged pipe can be completely removed and replaced with a new one.
Utility Lines Are Too Close
With sewer line repair in Tacoma, WA, there's also a need to consider nearby utility lines. If underground utility lines are too close to the affected segment of pipe, excavation may be recommended. With excavation, our trained technicians can clearly see anything around your sewer lines so precautions can be taken.
The Damage Is In a Hard-to-Reach Area
The first step taken with sewer line repair in Tacoma, WA is usually a camera inspection. If it turns out that the damage is in a hard-to-reach area of your sewer line, excavation may be recommended. This is more likely to be the case if your sewer line has unusual twists and turns near the damaged area.
You Prefer Not to Have an Older Pipe Buried
One trenchless approach to sewer line replacement in Tacoma, WA involves breaking up the existing pipe and pushing it into the ground. A new pipe is then inserted in its place. However, if you prefer not to have your older pipe buried, excavation can leave you with an entirely new pipe after the old one is entirely removed.
