What Causes Sewer Line Damage?
Sewer and drain problems are not reserved for older homes with old sewer systems. Problems with the drains and sewer line can impact homes of any age.
Here are some of the most common issues that affect sewer lines:
Temperature Spikes: If there is a spike in the temperature, it may cause the ground to shift. If this happens, the sewer line may become disconnected and require repair.
Roots: Tree roots can burst through sewer lines as they reach for a fresh source of water.
Deteriorating Pipes: Sewer lines that are older or have been exposed to many years of chemical drain cleaners may deteriorate to the point of needing replacement.
Human Error: If you are digging in your yard, you may accidentally strike the sewer line and puncture it. This is why it’s important to trust in professional help if you are planning construction around your home.
Conventional Drain Repair (Trench Method)
Conventional drain repair involves digging and trenching to expose the damaged sewer line. This service may seem time consuming, but it allows our technicians to provide a comprehensive repair that will last.
When would you choose the conventional repair method? If the affected area of your pipe does not run under a deck, patio, landscaping, or pavement, we may be able to perform a conventional pipe repair. The conventional trench method is more cost effective compared to trenchless services; however, keep in mind the potential added costs of renovating the trenched area after the repair is complete.
Reasons to Choose a Trenchless Repair
Sometimes, sewer lines require work when they are not easily accessible with digging or trenching. For example, lines located underneath buildings, roads or parking lots are all inconvenient to reach by digging. In these cases, we use a trenchless repair which allows us to install a new pipe without needing to dig and expose the damaged pipe currently in place.
There are two main options in trenchless repair:
We are able to install a new sewer line directly inside the old damaged line without digging or trenching. The first step is feeding pipe material into the old pipe. Once the piping material is in place, we insert an inflatable bladder that inflates the material and cures it with epoxy. After the epoxy dries, the bladder is removed and you are left with a brand new pipe.
This service involves feeding a metal cable through the old sewer line with a splitting wedge fitted to the end. As the wedge breaks up the old pipe, the new pipe is installed in its place. Trenchless repairs are ideal in situations where digging to expose the sewer line is not an option, whether we are unable to reach the sewer line or if there are time constraints that place a limit on the repair.
Signs You Need Professional Drain Repair
There are several signs to look out for in your home that may indicate that professional sewer line repair is needed. Watch for these following signs and symptoms:
- Slow-moving or standing water in your sink or tub.
- Tree roots, dirt or branches backwashing into your sink or tub.
- Difficulty flushing the toilet.
- Overflowing sinks or toilets.
- Foul odors coming from the drain.
- Gurgling sounds coming from the drain.
- Toilets that are slow to fill back up after flushing.
Specializing in Expert Sewer Pump Drain Services
If you have a toilet, tub or sink in your basement, you most likely have a sewer pump installed to help pump the wastewater from the basement to the drain pipe. If the sewer pump malfunctions at any time, you may notice standing or overflowing water in the basement as well as bad odors coming from the drain. A broken sewer pump requires immediate action and repair before you can use your basement plumbing fixtures again.
