Trenchless Sewer Replacement
Raymark Plumbing & Sewer provides video inspection technology for evaluating the condition of your Seattle sewer pipes. This technology enables our customers to make an informed decision regarding the options of sewer repair or replacement. The option to replace old sewer pipes requires either a traditional (open cut) method or a (high performance) repair or replacement. The traditional “open cut” method requires that surrounding area be dug up, pipe removed and then repaired or replaced. However, with a “high performance” trenchless method, repairs are made quickly with minimal disruption to landscaped yards, walkways, driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, and streets.
Repairing or Replacing Your Trenchless System
When deciding whether to repair or replace your sewer, there are a few things to consider. Repair to your Seattle system may be an option “only” if your sewer has a reasonable life expectancy and is sized appropriately for your home. The system will also show very little or no sign of root intrusion.
However, replacement becomes necessary when your sewer is bellied, damaged, or has collapsed. These factors signify that your sewer is well past its life expectancy. Other issues that dictate the need for replacement will be if the pipes are overrun with roots, or the system has become too small due to upgrades and home improvements
If you decide replacement is needed, the trenchless pipe replacement system would be a more cost effective option than “open cut” techniques. In virtually every situation trenchless has substantial advantages over the open cut method as it is faster, more efficient, more environmentally friendly and less disruptive to surface features your landscaped yard, walkway, driveway, parking lot, sidewalk, and street.

So what is directional boring? Directional boring, also referred to as horizontal directional drilling, is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipe, conduit, or cable under your home. This is done in a shallow arc along a predetermined bore path by using a specialized surface-launched drilling rig. Directional boring is growing in popularity because it created minimal impact on the surrounding area.
Directional boring is a method of installing underground pipes and conduits along a prescribed bore path from the surface, with minimal impact to the surrounding area. Raymark Plumbing & Sewer uses this process for installing water lines and sewer lines when other methods are more expensive and when safer for the environment.
