These gardens were bigger than the last pipe burst, and just as pretty. The homeowner was very happy to hear that we could replace sewer pipe by pipe bursting. This job was a bit harder that the last one.
At some point someone had repaired the Orangeburg sewer line at the basement end and poured it in concrete. After drilling out the wall, (that took 2 hours and a quick coffee break) Justin and crew were able to continue with the repair of the sewer line.
This run was a little more than 60ft and was at an angle, again under the porch, through the gardens and driveway…and very deep.
Once the concrete was removed the pipe replacement pull went quickly, about 30 minutes.
And by the time the home owners returned home their sewer line was replaced with new HDPE, hooked up, backfilled and paved.
In talking to the homeowner, they were very thankful for trenchless technologies. A neighbor with flower gardens several years ago had a sewer pipe installation go very bad and her entire front lawn, driveway and gardens were destroyed.
If you have to have your sewer line replaced, talk to your contractor about trenchless technologies or pipe bursting it’s a great alternative to traditional sewer replacement. It’s less invasive, cost effective and better for the environment.
