Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

Ask anyone who has ever had his lawn torn up so that his sewer lines can be repaired or replaced and he will tell you that it is an absolute nightmare. In addition to the damage done on your lawn, the replacement takes time, and it is annoying to have the noise from heavy machinery near your home for extended periods. The nightmare continues once you receive the bill, which will result in the formation of a rather large dent in your bank account. Below are a few points through which I have tried to provide an answer to the question; is trenchless pipeline repairing the ultimate sewer line solution?

Let us start with the advantages that the method has over the traditional method of digging a trench:Trenchless Sewer Repair

1. It is cleaner

Sewer lines run right beneath our beautiful and sometimes, costly lawns. Digging up the damaged pipes destroys these lawns. In addition to this, the soil from the trench is exposed to the wind, which can carry it and deposit it on other parts of your ground where it is not needed. The situation can be made worse by the rise of a storm.

2. It is quicker

Since the need to dig a trench is eliminated, the need to fill it up is also ruled out. A lot less time has spent the replacement of the line. Therefore, you can have your toilets and any other system associated with the drainage running in a shorter time.

3. The method is less expensive

Trenchless sewer line repair or replacement does not include the cost of labor for digging a trench. It also does not carry any costs of replacing your lawn or repairing the pavement. Overall, it is much cheaper than the traditional method of digging a trench.

4. It involves the use of high-quality materials

It is most likely that the pipe you want to be repaired or replaced was made from cement, clay or some other material available at the time. These materials are not as strong as the materials being used in the modern world. The pipes installed through trenchless method are most likely made from polyethylene and have no seams. These pipes also have a longer lifespan.

5. Better function

In addition to an extended life cycle, the replacement used needs fewer repairs. The technology used in the making of the pipe ensures increased efficiency. The pipe offers less resistance to the water flowing through it thus enhances its performance.

6. It is less of a health hazard

Since trenchless methods of repairing pipes do not involve the bringing of an old pipe full of bacteria to the surface, they are safer health wise. The bacteria that reside in the pipe are left beneath the ground together with fragmented pieces of the old pipe.

7. It is more environmentally friendly

Minimum damage is done to the plant life that exists above the sewer pipe if a trenchless method is employed. Mother Nature, therefore, suffers much less interference. Besides, the damage done by cutting down one tree is too much. By using trenchless methods, you are aiding in saving the planet.

Disadvantages of the trenchless methods

I do not want to be the kind of a person that only tells one side of the story. Here are a few disadvantages of the trenchless method of repairing a sewer pipe:

• There are instances where it cannot be used

If the pipe in need of replacing or repair is too damaged, then the trenchless methods cannot be used. The method is largely based on the new pipe being guided by the old pipe before it is destroyed. Therefore, if the old pipe is destroyed, the new pipe will not have anything to guide it.

• It requires a lot of attention

If someone who is not very careful does the method, it could result in some major issues. You would be forced to call the company again or seek the services of a different company. Such issues could be because of the lining used not being given enough time to cure or the pipe being installed blocking another pipe and a variety of other reasons.

I have provided you with the information about trenchless sewer line repairs. It is now up to you to answer the question; is trenchless pipeline repairing the ultimate sewer line solution?

Network Operations Failure

Telstra’s Reputation in Question After 4th Network Operations Failure in 2 Months

On March 22, the Australian telecom giant Telstra went through yet another network outrage, making it the fourth one in the past two months. What’s even more concerning that each of the issues were caused by four different reasons, putting the network infrastructure of Telstra in question. The latest issue was caused by a card failure in one of its media gateway and network operations were down for hours. Users mostly in Victoria, NSW and Tasmania, were not able to make or receive calls in their mobile phone for the duration. Though Telstra apologized to the users over social media, the recent scenarios may have put a dent in their reputation. Even after claiming in social media at 1pm that the issue has been fixed, users still reported problems up until 5pm. Telstra claimed that only 3% of their customers were affected but given the reactions and responses everywhere, it was probably much more

Network Analytics to Rescue Network Auditing

The threat of cyber crimes and security breaches are very real today for businesses of any size. Whether it is a small company or a large multinational one, an attack or hack into the network system can be disastrous to deal with. Organized cyber crime has spread all over the world and they are capable of targeting even government and defence institutions, with constant finding new techniques and loopholes. Consider all this, having an IT manager or even an IT management team is a good option to consider for businesses. Hackers and attackers are growing more and more skilled day by day and have reached a pooint where simple password protections aren’t enough. Even a minor breach or attack can set back business operations for days and impact productivity.

Dropbox Drops

Dropbox Drops Amazon’s Cloud Networks for Own Technology

Half a billion people store photos videos and other files on Dropbox but until recently those were sitting in someone else’s cloud, Amazon’s to be exact. But Dropbox now has its own super storage service and has taken back 500 PB of data from Amazon. Though many thought the relationship between the two would last forever, Dropbox took everyone by surprise with their recent announcement, specially Amazon. Until now it was unthinkable for a cloud based storage startup to operate without the Amazon Web Service, but Dropbox decided it was time they moved away from the giant and become more self reliant as they took back 90% of their data back.

Grid Connection

Consumers Pay More than They Should for Grid Connection – Lack of Network Benchmarking

Recent analysis from energy and consumer experts show that network operators in Australia are being allowed by regulators to take twice as much money as they should for grid connections. The price for the transmission of electricity across networks makes up almost half of household electricity bill. Public owned monopolies are being used by the govrenment to earn revenues from ocnsymers with unfari policies or simple neglegence. While people ended up paying more, the governments kept collecting oversized dividends.
