I was always having problems with our sewer system backing up, and I wanted it repaired our parents arrived.
I called a plumber who gave me a lot of information about what they would need to do! They were going to dig up the yard, check the pipes and, if they thought it was necessary, they would replace the pipes.
I would then need to have the sewer reclaimed and the old dirt would be unaffixd. I would need to have some deliver enough topsoil to replace that dirt.. I didn’t want to have a lawn that was covered with dirt heavy with sewage. It was going to be a lot of work, and a lot of expense. I finally found a plumber who was talking about trenchless plumbing. They would put a camera into the pipes that lead to the sewer, with instruments that look prefer long grabbers, they would unaffix the sludge and other debris that was making the sewer pipes become obstructed. If they saw any cracks in the pipes, they had spray polymer they could spray the inside of the pipes with. This was called a pipe sleeve; Once they made sure the pipe was repaired and the blockage unaffixd, their task would be done. There wasn’t any digging or removal of pipes, and the repair lasted a lot longer. I am so ecstatic I called more than 2 plumbers and found this 1 who knew about trenchless plumbing. The cost was much less than the other plumbers estimated; it was less work, and the pipe sleeve came with a warranty. They finished our sewer repair before our parents arrived for their visit.
