Sewer replacement is a frustrating part of owning a home or business, and traditional methods require excavation the entire length of the affected pipe. Over the last couple decades, minimally-invasive methods of pipe replacement have been increasing in popularity. The entire process is simplified by reducing the impact to your property and efficiently repairing your plumbing system.
What Causes Sewer Line Damage?
Your sewer line likely encounters near-constant use. Normal use can lead to corrosion and mineral deposits along your sewer line. Food scraps, paper products, and other unsuitable materials can also cause a clog that increases the pressure in your system and can lead to cracks, leaks, or other damage.
Some sewer line damage is out of your control. Tree roots nearby can invade your pipes looking for water, which leads to cracks and leaks. Earthquakes are common here in Northern California, and that seismic activity causes the ground to shift and can eventually impact your sewer line.
Sewer Line Replacement
Upon arrival, our professional technicians will inspect your sewer line to identify the problem areas. When your pipe is beyond repair, we can replace your pipe without invasive digging. The entire process is typically completed using two small access points to keep the work area small.
Pipe bursting is the most common form of trenchless pipe replacement. During the process, a mechanical device is used to break apart your existing pipe and pull a section of new pipe into place. The process is very efficient and allows us to restore full functionality to your sewer line with minimal downtime. Without a lengthy trench, our simple approach saves you time and money.
Tips for Preventing Sewer Line Damage
Doing your part to prevent unnecessary damage to your sewer line will help you avoid future repairs and keep your system running smoothly. Although some environmental factors are unavoidable, the following will help you avoid contributing to further damage:
- Dispose of grease, coffee grounds, and other food scraps properly
- Avoid flushing paper towels, cleaning wipes, and other paper products
- Don’t allow children or pets to play in the bathroom
