Trenchless Sewer Pipe Bursting Columbus

That being said, a customer from Columbus, Oh called us to ask if the Columbus trenchless pipe burst technique would work in their situation. “Their” situation seems a bit ambiguous, however, it was learned the customer was an avid landscaper and put years of work into the mature landscaping on the property. The last thing they wanted to do was to dig up plants and bushes to repair the sewer line. In explaining to the Columbus customer this method will generally prevent that, an appointment was set up to inspect the faulty sewer pipe in question. Upon arrival, the sewer video camera’s were inserted into the pipe and sure enough it was a 6 inch clay pipe line that was about 45 feet long to the city sewer. It was literally full of roots to the point it appeared the customer was doing some landscaping inside the pipe! The customer appreciated the joke, however it was explained that when you have a faulty line or clay pipe then roots can enter through cracks and joints, and every time you flush your commode system you are ‘watering the roots’, that’s why they stay and grow back.
