The Advantages of Trenchless Pipe Bursting

By APT Plumbing Admin on 30 Dec 2022

The old traditional way of replacing sewerage lines was to dig a massive trench that was an ugly mess and quite costly to the homeowner.

Considering homeowners are legally obligated to maintain their sewerage pipes, any gardens, paths, or other structures built over them will also require replacement.

Luckily in recent years, trenchless options have become available. This means there is no digging up yards or causing damage to anything in the garden. Trenchless sewerage line maintenance and replacement has become the preferred method as it means no digging trenches, gardens, parks and uprooting trees.
