Our plumbers have installed, repaired, and replaced several sewer lines in many different applications throughout the Tri-Cities area.

Common Causes of Sewer Line Damage

Tree Roots: Root systems can find weaknesses in sewer lines and work their way in, causing cracks and eventually blockages.

Ground Temperatures: With the freezing and re-thawing ground temperature, metal pipes can warp and crack.

Build-Up: Dirt, debris, grease, and other foreign objects can cause blockages which increase pressure on the pipe’s joints, leading to leaks and cracks.

Age: As with all things, the longer you have had the same sewer line and drainage system in place, the higher likelihood that the materials have become deteriorated.

Typical Sewer Line Repairs

  • Cracked or broken pipes: sewer lines that have been damaged due to ground movement or foreign objects.
  • Blockage: the buildup of debris, grease, etc. restricting flow of wastewater.
  • Corrosion: chemical processes causing the sewer line to rust or collapse.
  • Leaking joints: damage to the sewer line located in the seals allowing water to escape into the surrounding area.
  • Tree roots: invasion of the sewer line from root systems of trees or shrubs causing blockage or damage to the wastewater system.
  • Inferior materials: plumbing systems used with substandard or outdated material degrade and corrode faster.

Sewer Line Replacement & Repair

All sewer line replacement and repair services begin with an initial video inspection. Our plumber will come out to your location and identify the problem area and determine if a spot fix is needed or if a section of your sewer line needs replaced.

Conventional methods of repair or replacement can be used in which a trench is dug for the length of the pipe for easy access using heavy machinery. When the repair or replacement has been made, the trench is filled in using a backhoe.

Another option is with trenchless repair. This is where entry holes are made at the beginning and end point of the damaged pipe. Trenchless sewer repair tends to create less damage to the property’s yard, driveways, and surrounding obstacles because there are only two holes dug into the ground as opposed to a long trench. This option may not be available in all situations though, so be sure to ask our plumber if this can be done for your property.
