Despite the success that Five Star Service Pros have achieved with trenchless pipe lining in Meridian, ID, we’ve noticed that some myths about the process are still making the rounds. As a result, there are still some property owners that remain skeptical about the efficiency of trenchless solutions.

Don’t buy into these myths about trenchless pipe repair and replacement services.

Myth #1: It’s More Expensive

The myth of trenchless sewer replacement costing more than traditional options refuses to go away. This is largely due to the misunderstanding of the processes used during trenchless projects. To clarify, the upfront cost of trenchless pipe replacement may seem steep, but if you take into account the expenses associated with traditional pipe restoration, such as landscape restoration and pipe disposal, you’ll quickly realize that trenchless pipe lining can actually be the more cost-effective option.

Moreover, the cost of heavy excavation equipment, having to temporarily relocate, and the labor costs of trenchless sewer repair taking a few days all push the price upward.

Myth # 2: It’s Not a Long-Term Solution

Looking at the materials used for the trenchless pipe rehabilitation process, it can be pretty difficult to imagine the pipe as a sturdy solution. However, the resin mixture, which is the soft and malleable pipelining used in trenchless pipe replacement, cures while in place to form a hard pipe within a pipe, which will last for 50 years or longer, making the process a long-term solution.

Myth # 3: Trenchless Services Can Only be Used for Spot Repairs

Trenchless pipe lining can be as effective at repairing small areas as they are for whole pipe replacement. This is because the trenchless nature of the process allows the pipe restoration technicians to access the entire length of the damaged pipe.
