How to Identify a Damaged Sewer Line

Solutions Offered by Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Berkshire County

When it comes time to repair or replace your sewer line, we always give you a solid recommendation. However, we know that sewer line repair costs are often unexpected, catching your budget by surprise. That is why we always offer good, better, best options for repair. This way, you can select the solution that is ideally suited for your household. Sometimes, it may seem like your sewer line is the problem when all you need is drain cleaning services. Other times, your sewer line may be beyond repair and must be replaced entirely. Some of the most popular solutions for a damaged sewer line include:

  • Pipe Relining – When your sewer line has cracks or leaks, relining it may be the ideal solution. We can place a waterproof sleeve inside your sewer line. Once it is inside, it will harden and form a new inner wall for your sewer line. This long-lasting solution can make your sewer line function as if it’s brand new.
  • Preventive Maintenance – If you use Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Berkshire County for preventive maintenance, you might never need to repair your sewer line. We will regularly clean drains and remove clogs, preventing materials from entering your sewer line. Our service professionals will also inspect your plumbing system whenever they come out. That way, we can catch problems as early as possible.
  • Pipe Bursting – Replacing your sewer line can be intimidating, but our hydraulic pipe bursting method makes it easier than most homeowners expect. We use a hydraulic drill to break up your existing sewer line. Then, we can insert a new sewer line in its place. Most importantly, this entire process does not involve digging trenches or tearing up your yard or landscaping.

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

When damage is too extensive to repair, we sometimes need to replace your entire sewer line. Since the entirety of your sewer line is underground, some companies may tell you that they need to dig up your yard to replace it.

We can diagnose and replace your sewer line with non-invasive methods, which means that we can leave your lawn and landscaping intact.
