Damages can range from clearing blocks to replacement and repairs, in any or all scenarios, we will discuss with you the best cost-effective options to undergo. Be sure to limit the use of water around your house until the issue is resolved or your technician advises you otherwise.
Clearing Out A Blocked Sewer Line
If your technician discovers that the source of your sewer problem is a clog, there are many methods of clearing the backup depending on the location and nature of the pipe line. Although many clogs or backups can be solved through the use of an auger or rooter, more stubborn problems such as invasive root growth from a nearby tree pose more challenges. If the roots just need to be cleared out and have not damaged or aggravated the pipe enough for it to be a cause for pipe replacement, the hydro jetting method can be used. Here, high pressurized water is inserted into the pipe to scour and clear away any clogs or blockages caused from debris.
Repairing Or Replacing A Damaged Sewer Line
If your sewer line problem is more severe and is the result of cracks, breakage or complete collapse, your sewer line may need more extensive repairs or even replacement. Here at Expert Plumbing and Rooter Inc we have several trenchless options that will lessen the amount of digging and maintain the integrity of your yard while localizing the issue.
In the case of sewer line repairs, these usually occur when damage is not too extensive. In these situations, a new lining can be inserted into the existing pipe which will result in a stronger and completely seamless sewer line.
If you have constant draining issues or have older pipes that haven’t been updated, a sewer line replacement may be needed. The pipe bursting technique can be applied in sewer replacement scenarios where we can thread the new sewer line behind a pointed metal head which in turn breaks apart and pushes aside the older sewer pipe.
Trenchless Sewer Line Repair or Replacement
Times have changed, and with it, methods to smooth out former processes. If your damages aren’t too severe, we here at Expert Plumbing and Rooter Inc are able to fix your sewer pipe repair or replacements without digging up your entire landscape by incorporating trenchless sewer repair. With this method, strategic access points are dug up instead of the whole expanse of the pipe.
Pipe Lining Sewer Line Repair
If your sewer line shows cracks and leaks forming, these may be signs of break down and the best solution may be pipe lining, or cured-in-place, pipe restoration. With this method, a durable epoxy resin permeated flexible tube is inserted from a single opening into the ground and current pipe. An air pressure inversion process pushes the entire lining into the older pipe and conforms to the shape by inflating and adhering to its walls. After a few hours, the epoxy resin cures and bonds with the pipe creating a newer and more seamlessly solid pipe than before.
Pipe Pulling Sewer Line Replacement
In cases where inspection shows the damage is too severe and there are sections of collapse, replacing the pipe may be the only option. With the pipe pulling, or pipe bursting, technique, only two holes would be excavated into the ground with a diameter large enough to feed the new pipe and pulling cable through. This method would involve inserting a pointed cone shaped steel expander head with the newer pipe following behind through the current pipe line with a pulling cable. The metal head would then break apart the older line and the newer one would immediately take its place. This would allow for easy attached to the adjacent sewers, thereby reconnecting the pipe on the ends and being ready for use.
