When Is Sewer Line Repair Required?
Homeowners usually can tell when sewer line repair is required. Indicators may include the following:
- Slow drains
- Bad odors inside or outside the house
- Wastewater and sewage backups
- Pools of water collecting in the yard
- Noises coming from the toilet
When homeowners notice these signs of a problem with sewer lines, it’s important to call on an experienced professional. Through analysis of the problem using cameras, examination, and technical knowledge, plumbers and drain specialists can determine if there are problems with the sewer lines. If there are cracks, leaks, or blockages, it’s best to initiate repairs right away. Untended sewer line malfunctions can get worse over time, often creating situations that are costly and complicated.
What Is Trenchless Sewer Repair?
Rather than digging up the yard to replace old sewer lines, trenchless sewer repair, and trenchless pipe repair can effectively fix sewer line leaks with only minor amounts of excavation. Digging occurs to create entry and exit points to the sewer line and repairs or replacement is undertaken from those points. There is no channel or ditch digging, so landscaping can be preserved. These repair or replacement methods also take less time to complete and can reduce or minimize costs. Arrow Sewer & Drain uses the following methods for trenchless sewer repair:
Once the damage to old pipes and sewer lines has been examined, and a repair plan is in place, experienced technicians will pull a new pipe through from entry to exit point. The new pipe material is chosen depending on the specific soils, placement, and other conditions operating at the home. The new pipe material is used to burst the old pipe and replace it along the same pathway, or to line the old pipe with new materials, such as fiberglass soaked in epoxy resin or polymer that are subsequently hardened into place.
What Materials Are Used in Trenchless Sewer Repair?
The exact type of material used for the project depends on the specific situation of the home and the condition of the sewer lines. Arrow Sewer & Drain uses the following commonly used materials for trenchless sewer repair:
- High-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe
- Epoxy resin
- PVC pipe
