For one reason or another, some homeowners will find that they need to install a new pipe (or multiple pipes) in and around their house at some point in their lives. This can be a fairly scary situation for a number of reasons. First, folks are probably worried about what’s going to happen to their beautifully landscaped yard. After all, laying a new pipe in the ground has to be an invasive process, right? Second, the homeowners are probably concerned about the cost of installing a new pipe. With parts and labor, it seems like new pipe installation could be really expensive. Third, how are people supposed to know who to choose to complete the process? Plumbers in Toronto seem to be a dime a dozen, and choosing the right company for the job might be difficult. In order to alleviate some concerns, we’ve put together this handy guide to teach all of our customers about replacing or installing a pipe:
- The pipe bursting process: The best way to install a pipe without causing any damage to your driveway or landscape is through a process called pipe bursting. During this procedure, a plumber removes an old pipe and simultaneously replaces it with a new one. This is accomplished without digging along the route of the pipe, so ruining your yard isn’t necessary. One of the best parts of pipe bursting is that the pipe can be bent up to 90 degrees to easily move around obstacles in the ground. This technique has been used across the world in all different types of terrain, so you can rest assured that it’ll work on your property.
- The cost of pipe bursting: Once you’ve talked to a plumber about the process, your next thoughts probably have something to do with the cost. Since it’s an advanced procedure, one might assume that pipe bursting is expensive. Luckily, that’s not the case! The two biggest costs associated with pipe bursting are the cost of operating the machinery and the labor fees. The total cost depends on how long it takes to do the job and the location of the repair, but you’ll usually spend a little less for pipe bursting than with traditional methods.
- How to choose a plumber to do the job: The main thing you want when choosing a company to install a new pipe at your home is experience. Although this new technology has made installing pipes easier over the past few decades, it’s not something that anyone off the street can just do without any training or experience in the field.
