About Our Expert Drain Replacement Services
If you know something is up with your drain line but you aren’t sure what, it’s best not to wait and see what happens. Catching minor issues such as pipe cracks, clogged drains, and corrosion early can help prevent the need for drain replacement, but the point at which you call us also determines which type of replacement option we use.

Plumbing Inspection & Diagnosis
This is the first step of any plumbing inspection, even if we suspect you need a drain replacement. Our Dallas clients can expect us to perform a visual inspection if they are not currently experiencing any concerning issues with their pipes. We’ll check out all of your plumbing fixtures, including your toilets, bathtubs, bathroom sinks, kitchen sinks, dishwashers, and more. We’ll also be sure to inspect your draining and venting systems, filtration systems, and the main shut-off valve. Sump pumps will also be assessed.
A professional plumber knows exactly what to look for to know if video camera inspection is necessary, and if it is, we’ll use specialized equipment to take a peek down your drain line. The camera may spot clogs in pipes formed of hair, soap scum, and debris, but it may also find damage from tree roots, toys, and other foreign objects. As we snake the camera through your drains, it will show real-time footage of what’s inside, also relaying via signal receiver the size of the clog. Depending on what we learn, we’ll move on to the next step of the process.
Drain Cleaning Service
Drain cleaning is only possible if your pipes are in decent condition and do not need to burst. In this step, we’ll use our cutting-edge hydro jetting technology—the name for our super-powered cleaning solution that blasts blockages through your drains and out into the main sewer system. This highly effective method uses high pressure to remove built-up dirt and debris from your drain line to prep it for relining.
Pipe Relining or Pipe Bursting
We will recommend pipe relining if your drain line only has a few small issues and pipe bursting if there are numerous or larger issues. Both of these methods are non-invasive and do not require us to dig up your backyard. In fact, all we need to do is dig one small hole to access the main drain line for relining and two small holes for bursting—one to insert the new pipe and one to remove the old current pipe. Both of these methods are completed within one business day and will not require you to stay at your mother-in-law’s for an entire week.

FAQs About Drain Replacement in Dallas
Can I Replace My Drain Myself?
There’s no complicated answer required for this question. The simple answer is no. It’s not a service that homeowners can do themselves—unless that homeowner happens to be a skilled and seasoned plumbing professional with access to cutting-edge tools and materials. If that doesn’t sound like you, call a professional. The process can get messy.
What Causes the Need for Drain Replacement?
You know the story: One day, your drains are fine, and the next, they're displaying all the common warning signs you need drain repair services—slow drainage, gurgling, bubbling, and threatening to leak. If they suspect they need drain replacement, residents should consider what caused the need in the first place. Doing so will help prevent drainage issues from occurring in the future. With that said, sometimes, drain issues are simply caused by factors beyond your control. Read on to discover what causes extensive drain damage:
- Corrosion from chemical cleaners or hard water
- Cracks formed by temperature changes
- Invasive tree roots
- Damage caused by troublesome clogs
- Normal wear and tear over the years
- Backups caused by stressed/clogged/broken pipes
Why Does My Shower Drain So Slowly?
Slow drains in the shower are one of the most infuriating plumbing problems homeowners face. It may not seem like a big issue, but it can be a sign of one. It’s certainly a sign that you need your drains cleaned, but it could also mean there’s a larger issue at play. The best way to find out why your drains are draining so slowly is to get them inspected. Inspection is always the first step of our drain replacement process, but you can request the service before you get an inkling that you need it.
During your inspection, we’ll likely find a clog at some point in your drain made up of soap scum, debris, and hair. This clog will be large enough to slow the flow of water but not large enough to block it completely. Don’t curse yourself and wish you purchased chemical drain cleaners, these may act as temporary solutions, but the issue will likely reemerge soon and this time, your drains will be in much worse condition due to the corrosive chemicals.
What Can I Do To Prevent The Need For Drain Replacement?
Proper care for your drains is needed to prevent a broken sewer pipe; however, at some point, your drain system will need to be replaced due to age or circumstances beyond your control. This could be invasive tree roots or the freezing and thawing of pipes that lead to cracks. With that said, you can still prevent damage to your pipes by never doing the following:
- Using chemical drain cleaners (these can corrode your pipes)
- Flushing foreign objects down the toilet
- Neglecting professional drain cleaning services
That last one is critical. Professional drain cleaning should be on your list of annual home maintenance services, but if it’s not, add it now. The reason this one task is so important is that it clears your pipes of dirt, debris, and other foreign matter. It will also give you a chance to get your system inspected, ensuring it’s free from cracks, corrosion, and other factors that might contribute to larger issues down the line and possibly prevent the complete replacement of your pipes.
