What Causes Damage to Sewer Pipes?
While sewer pipes are made from strong and durable materials, they are not impervious to damage. Some of the most common causes of sewer line cracks, breaks, and backups include:
- Severe clogs that have developed into blockages
- Corrosion within the sewer pipes
- Shifts and movement in the soil and ground surrounding the sewer pipes
- Tree roots that have broken through the sewer lines
- Old, outdated sewer pipes
- Faulty initial installation of the sewer lines
Thankfully, trenchless sewer repair technology makes it possible to correct these issues with minimal disruption to your property.
How Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Work?
Trenchless sewer repair is a modern and less invasive method used to repair or replace damaged or deteriorating sewer pipes without the need for extensive excavation.
Here's how it works:
- Inspection: A professional plumber begins by conducting a thorough inspection of the sewer line using specialized cameras or video equipment. This helps identify the exact location and extent of the damage.
- Preparation: Once the problem areas are identified, the plumber prepares the damaged pipe for repair. This may involve cleaning the pipe to remove debris or obstructions.
- Pipe Lining: One common trenchless method is pipe lining or cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining. A flexible, resin-coated lining is inserted into the damaged pipe. It is inflated and pressed against the interior walls of the existing pipe. The resin is then cured, creating a new, seamless pipe inside the old one.
- Pipe Bursting: Another trenchless technique is pipe bursting. A new pipe is pulled through the existing damaged pipe while simultaneously fracturing the old pipe outward. The new pipe takes the place of the old one, providing a durable and efficient solution.
Both methods eliminate the need for extensive excavation, minimizing disruption to the surrounding area and reducing costs. Trenchless sewer repair is generally faster, more cost-effective, and leaves the property in better condition compared to traditional excavation methods. It is a highly efficient and environmentally-friendly solution for repairing sewer lines.
