For many homeowners, having to consider replacing their sewer line feels like really bad luck. Maybe your sewer system is older and becoming prone to problems. Or, maybe you’ve uncovered problems with your sewer already, like clogs or cracks in the lines. 

You may be worried about the time, inconvenience and expense that comes along with digging up your yard to access and replace your sewer lines. It sounds like a headache waiting to happen. There is some good news here, though! 

Replacing your sewer line has many advantages

For starters, replacing your sewer system in Edmonton means you’ll have peace of mind that everything is in great shape and running properly. It means no more sewer-related problems in your home or yard. 

So, you won’t have to deal with things like:

  • Toilets that overflow
  • Drains that run slow
  • Foul odours leaking from your sewer system that never seem to go away
  • Flooding in your basement
  • Flooding in your yard (or large wet patches in your grass)

Another good thing about replacing your sewer system today is that modern technology makes the process a whole lot simpler, quicker and easier than it used to be. Many sewer line professionals in Edmonton use trenchless technology to replace sewer lines. 

In the past, replacing your sewer line would mean excavating your yard along your entire sewer line, which would require heavy equipment, more manpower and days of work just to get access to your line.

However, with trenchless sewer line replacement technology, your Edmonton water and sewer contractor team won’t need to unearth your entire yard to access and replace your sewer line. In fact, the team can replace the line by digging only two small holes in your yard. That means less damage to your yard and landscaping—and less time and effort needed to repair your lawn. And, depending on your specific sewer system, replacing your line could be done in as little as one day. 

So, with less time, manpower and equipment needed to replace your sewer line, there is also less costly to you as a homeowner than there would have been with traditional sewer replacement methods. 

And another bonus? With modern sewer replacement technology, this work can be done any time of the year, so you don’t have to wait for ideal weather to get the job done.

Deciding whether or not to replace your sewer line is still a big decision, but modern, trenchless technology does make the process much easier than it used to be. You may decide that the peace of mind that comes along with knowing your sewer system is running efficiently and properly is well worth the time, effort and cost of replacing the line.
