Broken Sewer Line Solutions

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Bozeman's plumbing and sewer line repair specialists can evaluate the damage and cracks in your sewer pipes. We, along with you probably, want to take steps to prevent sewer line replacement at any costs. Notwithstanding the particulars of your property's layout and sewer system, there can still be some fundamental problems that we can fix. Some of the most often fixes and replacements we make include the following:

  • Pipe relining: With this technique, we'll provide you with brand-new pipes that are built from the inside out. In order to avoid pipe cracks, we can also "sleeve" the inside of already-existing sewer pipes. We'll first clean the pipe. The lining will then be applied, and it will solidify in a matter of hours. This is an excellent solution that takes far less time, effort, and disruption than traditional sewer line repair, without sacrificing effectiveness.
  • Hydraulic replacement of a burst sewer pipe: Depending on how badly damaged your sewer pipe is, we may have to draw a new sewer pipe through the old one. Using hydraulics, the damaged old pipe is further disassembled and smoothly replaced with a new pipe utilizing this trenchless method.
  • Preventative pipe maintenance: It's crucial to contribute to the first prevention of sewer line damage. You can keep large debris and buildup out of your pipes and prevent cracks, clogs, and bursts by scheduling routine sewer line inspections and drain cleaning services.

Frequently asked questions about sewer line repair & replacement

How do you know if your sewer line is damaged?

There are several telltale signs indicating that your sewer line may be damaged. Common symptoms include foul odor in your home, slow-draining sinks and toilets, recurrent sewer backups, lush patches of grass over the sewer line, and odd gurgling noises coming from your pipes. Sewage backups or standing sewage water around the exterior of your house could be a sign of a serious problem with your sewer line. If you notice any of these issues, it is crucial to reach out to a professional plumber to assess the situation and diagnose the problem.

How serious is a crack in the sewer line?

A crack in your sewer line should never be overlooked. While a small crack may not immediately cause significant problems, cracks can quickly expand and potentially cause severe damage to your home if left untreated. Small sewer line cracks can allow water to seep into the surrounding soil, leading to soil erosion, foundation issues, and pipe collapse over time. Furthermore, a cracked sewer line can attract tree roots seeking water and nutrients, eventually causing blockages that can lead to sewage backups in your home.

How long should a sewer line last?

The lifespan of a sewer line can vary depending on several factors, including the material of the pipe, the quality of installation, the surrounding soil conditions, and maintenance practices. Here are some general estimates for the lifespan of common sewer line materials:

  • Clay Pipes: Clay sewer pipes have been used for many years and can last up to 50 to 60 years or more with proper installation and maintenance.

  • Cast Iron Pipes: Cast iron sewer pipes are known for their durability and can last anywhere from 75 to 100 years.

  • PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) Pipes: PVC pipes are commonly used in modern sewer systems due to their affordability and longevity. They can last between 50 to 100 years or more.

  • Orangeburg Pipes: Orangeburg pipes are made of a bituminized fiber material and were commonly used in older homes. Their lifespan is generally shorter, around 30 to 50 years.

It's important to note that these estimates are rough guidelines, and the actual sewer line life expectancy can vary depending on various factors. Regular maintenance, such as clearing clogs and preventing root intrusion, can help extend the life of a sewer line. Additionally, environmental factors, ground movement, and corrosive substances can also affect the longevity of sewer lines. If you're concerned about the condition of your sewer line, it's best to consult a professional plumber or sewer expert for a thorough inspection.

How do you know when your sewer line needs to be replaced?

There are several factors to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace your sewer line. The age and material of your pipes, the extent of damage, and the frequency of problems can all contribute to this decision. Some key signs that your sewer line may need to be replaced include:

  • Recurrent sewage backups and clogs
  • Persistent foul odors in and around your home
  • Deterioration of pipe materials that can no longer be efficiently repaired
  • A history of multiple repairs that do not seem to improve the overall performance of the sewer system
