Your home’s sewer lines can get damaged, and need repair, for a number of reasons.
Here are some of the more typical ones:
- Broken, cracked or offset pipes caused by shifting soil, usually due to freezing/thaw cycles each season
- Cracked or leaking sewer lines caused by corrosion in old or substandard sewer lines
- Leaking joints caused shifting soil or corrosion
- Root intrusion caused by nearby trees
- Blockages caused by grease buildup or other material lodged in pipe
Whatever the reason there are a few repair methods available to you…
Sewer Line Repair Methods
Traditional Repair Method
The typical sewer line repair is done by digging a trench along the path of your sewer line. Once the damaged section is uncovered a new section of pipe is installed.
This method usually requires a backhoe to perform some excavation and refill of the ground.
Pipe Relining Process
Relining is a repair method that uses a “pipe withing a pipe.” Depending on the nature of your sewer line leak this repair method is a good one to use, since it causes less disruption of your property. It typically works well for these issues:
- root damage repair
- leaks caused by cracks, small holes or seal joints
Essentially, your damaged pipe get relined with epoxy materials, creating a smooth inner pipe that restores flow and function in your sewer lines. Your relined pipe is seamless and durable, and all materials used in the relining process are non-hazardous.
