You’d rather be thinking of something else when it comes to the sewer system in your home. We get it. Ignorance is bliss for most people. When something goes wrong in your sewer system like a broken pipe or tree roots, it can cause major problems and stress.

With trenchless pipe repair, you won’t need to worry about your sewer lines, even when something goes wrong. We’ll take care of all the details with our sewer repair and replacement teams. It’s normal to be curious, even just a little bit, about what happens when a system malfunctions and requires repair. This blog will cover the basics of sewer repair and replacement, so you can be calm and cool when a sewer problem occurs.

Signs that you may need a sewer line repair or replacement

Let’s start by discussing the signs that you might need to repair or replace your sewer line.

These “alarm bells”, which alert you to sewer line repairs and replacement, include:

  • Multiple locations of slow drainage
  • Drains or outside systems emit foul smells
  • Clay pipes older than 60
  • Older than 100 years cast iron or PVC pipe
  • Frequent drainage problems, like backups
  • Drains or pipes making gurgling noises
  • What kind of debris is in your water?

The severity of the damage will determine whether or not you require a line replacement. Trenchless Pipe Repair’s experts will always let you know what you need to do for your comfort and safety.

Sewer Line Repair and Replacement: How Does It Work?

We will first use the latest diagnostic cameras to see what’s wrong. We don’t need to dig up the entire yard to find the source of the problem. We can analyze the problem as we move the camera along the pipes. This plan may look different depending on the problem, but it will typically include trenchless sewer repair and water jetting.

Water jetting blasts dirt, debris or any other culprits that cause clogs away using high-pressured water. Water jetting is so easy that you might not even notice our presence. The water will do the rest. We direct the hose to the clog and let it work. If the damage to your sewer line is extensive, such as a collapsed pipe, you may need to replace it. We offer trenchless replacement of sewer lines, which means we dig only where necessary and replace the line.

Sewer Line Replacement: What to Expect

Even though we would like to avoid it at all costs, replacing sewer lines can be quite noisy. Rest assured that any unusual noises, such as bubbling or rattling outside your front door, are normal. You can also expect to lose your home’s plumbing, such as toilet, washing machine, or shower use, when the line needs replacing.

We will work with you to ensure that your family and yourself experience the least amount of disruption. Ask your team of experts if you have questions about your replacement’s timeline.
