Pipeline damage due to soil-settling, increased traffic on the ground above, use of heavy construction equipment above ground, corrosion of an older pipe causing the pipe to break, leaking joints where the broken seals may allow the water and sewage to escape.
Severe Pipe Damage
Tree Root Infiltration
If the growing tree and shrub roots, searching for sources of water, latch onto a sewer pipe, they will grow into the pipe in order to reach the water inside. When the roots expand over a period of time, it can cause the sewer line to break.
Flushing Debris to the Toilet
Flushing your toilet with any material other than human waste and toilet paper will block the sewer drain severely.
Integrated Plumbing Solutions for Sewer Line Repair and replacement
Our technicians do modern and traditional dig ups and sewer line replacements.
The first step to sewer line replacement is a camera inspection and diagnosis. Images captured by the camera are transmitted to a device handled by our camera technician. During the same time, a radio transmitter on the camera records the physical location of the line and its depth from the surface, so that repairs can be properly planned and executed. Once it’s determined that a sewer line must be repaired or replaced, there are a couple of options to choose from.
Traditional Sewer Line Repair or Replacement
The traditional repair or replacement is usually done using an excavator to dig up the area around the line, giving best access to the problem area. Once the repair is made, the excavator is used to refill the area.
Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Methods
Trenchless repairs involve making small access holes where the damaged pipe starts and ends. A new pipe is then pulled through the existing damaged pipe, which ruptures the old pipe into pieces while simultaneously laying new pipe.
