Excavating yard for repair

Trenchless pipe repair is arguably one of the best solutions for all types of sewer problems. It is much faster, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly than traditional methods. That said, there are certain situations and problems that are best resolved using traditional sewer repair. NGI Trenchless Pipe & Sewer Repair discusses these below:

Tree Root Invasions

Tree roots are one of the leading causes of cracks and leaks in your sewer lines. Roots enter your pipes in search of water and nutrients, and as they grow over time, they can block your sewer and lead to other problems. While this issue can also be resolved with trenchless sewer repair in Atlanta, GA, we often recommend the traditional method. Since we need to excavate your yard to repair the pipe anyway, you can also have any mature trees near your sewer system removed to prevent the problem from recurring.

Old Cracked Pipes

While trenchless sewer replacement and repair can be used to seal any cracks in your pipes, if the cracks are too severe or the pipe is too old, we may recommend a traditional repair instead. This is because the surrounding pipes may not be stable enough to support the reinforced pipe.

Large Part of the System is Affected

If there is a large section of your system that needs to be repaired, traditional repairs are often recommended. Trenchless pipe replacement and repairs use epoxy-filled liners to repair damaged pipes, but this can be difficult to do when a big part of your sewer system needs repairs.
