Keeping It Good
When to Get Sewer Repair
Every home is dependent on a single sewer line that removes wastewater out of your house plumbing system and keeps all home appliances and fixtures running efficiently for everyday use. Therefore, your sewer line plays a vital role in the smooth functioning of your overall home plumbing system. As a homeowner, it is typically your responsibility to maintain, repair and replace the sewer line running from your house to the center of the street. Sewer repair and inspection is nowhere near as difficult as it used to be. We now have the technology to not only inspect problems without digging, but repair or either fully replace systems without having to do so.
If you experience backups or blockages regularly even after having the pipes cleaned, then you may have an underlying issue such as tree root intrusion, channeling, cracks letting surrounding soil in, or a misaligned pipe connection. These issues can be detected by getting a sewer video inspection.
No-dig solutions have made sewage repair much less straining for homeowners. No longer do huge excavations need to be made to remove and replace sewage lines, as trenchless technology allows all of this work to be done underground.
Pipe relining is a popular way of repairing a pipe without fully replacing it. This involves fully cleaning out a pipe – possibly with a high pressure hydro jet – and then inserting a new pipe which lines against the old one. This new pipe will harden and prevent the sewers from leaking, and because of the tough resin material, the chances of tree roots forcing their way into the pipe are lowered.
Resin injections are a good way of repairing a pipe if there are just a few minor cracks. This involves a small bit of digging to uncover the cracked areas, before the resin is injected into the cracks and allowed to harden.
