Find the Layout of Your Sewer System
It's important to find out where your sewer system and sewer lines are before you plant anything with long roots. It is possible for the roots to grow right through your sewer system and break it. Though it may not be a problem for many years, it's something you can prevent if you do a little bit of research.

St Paul Trenchless Sewer Replacement: What You Need to Know

Gene's Water & Sewer, one of the best at St Paul trenchless sewer replacement, has some insight into this kind of sewer repair. We've been in business since 1977, so we've seen a lot of sewer replacement trends come and go. But we think trenchless sewer replacement is here to stay, and here's why.
The best part about trenchless sewer replacement in St Paul is that this technology truly means no dig. When we're doing sewer replacements at St Paul homes, one of the most frequent concerns we hear from homeowners is they are worried about how much of their yard and landscaping will suffer when we have to dig. But with trenchless sewer replacement, a hardened steel splitting head is pulled through the old pipe. The new pipe, attached to the head, is pulled through the old pipe, following the path of the old one and laying in its rubble. We can essentially replace the old pipe by using the new pipe. So there is no need for costly excavations that will interfere with the homeowner's landscaping and daily life. Another perk is that there will be no structural damage to your St Paul home when you get trenchless sewer replacement done.
And sometimes, trenchless sewer replacement is more cost-effective than any other way. So homeowners love it because it also means they save some money. Plus these new pipes are guaranteed not to leak, so worrying about sewer leaks is a thing of the past.
