Getting your sewer line replaced used to be a very large ordeal that involved bringing in a lot of heavy machinery. Thanks to many technological advances, we can avoid those big machines much of the time. Today, we can usually access your sewer pipes to replace them using trenchless technology. Call us here at Absolute Plumbing and Drain today, and let us explain the process we now use to replace a sewer pipe.
Reasons Most Martinez Sewer Pipes Need Replacement
Most of the time, sewer pipes need to be replaced because corrosion or buildup lead to a break. As sewer pipes get used, they can easily gather minerals on the inside of the pipes that build up over time. This can lead to problems such as clogs or slow drainage on your California property. Old pipes also corrode over time simply because they are getting old. Sometimes, they may also need replacing due to the pressure of tree roots invading the sewer pipe. Once a tree root gets in, it grows, which causes a large amount of pressure on the pipe.
All of these issues can lead to a collapsed sewer pipe. Once a sewer pipe collapses, the only option you have is to replace the pipe. If a pipe is cracked, there are other repair options. However, with a collapsed pipe, a new pipe must be put in place for the line to work properly. It used to be that in order to replace a pipe, we had to dig a large trench through your Martinez property to access the pipe, then use a crane to take out the old pipe and set in the new pipe. Today, we are luckily able to avoid this scenario in most instances.
How We Can Replace Your California Sewer Pipe
Today, we access your Martinez property’s sewer pipe from a nearby junction. We then use a tool with a bursting head on the front, which pushes through the pipe, blasting the debris so it gets out of the way. This includes any collapsed pipe pieces and soil now residing in the pipe. Once the pipe is clear, a new pipe is pulled into place, and it gets connected at either end. Once we test to make sure the connections are nice and tight, we then give you the green-light to go ahead and start using your pipe like normal. This entire process is typically able to be done in a matter of hours, restoring your Martinez pipes in no time!
