How Mr. Rooter Plumbing Approaches A Standard Sewer Line Replacement

Residents who are extra vigilant and observant about how they treat their wastewater drainage pipes will slim to none and require a sewer line repair. Homeowners who aim to actively avoid being exposed to contaminated wastewater crammed full of bacteria, fungi, parasites, viruses, and germs must not be complacent and ask for a sewer line replacement.

Plumbing Inspection And Diagnosis

At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we like to go by the mantra of preventative maintenance, that is, participating in routinely scheduled maintenance activities to prevent the likelihood of problems arising shortly. Or, to be frank, fixing things well ahead of them before they break. Dallas homeowners must, at the very least, sign up for an annual professional inspection and drain cleaning service to reduce their chances of needing a sewer line replacement, let alone ever encountering a clog. By practicing routine maintenance, for example, by allowing a trained plumber to clean and clear away any built-up debris, including any obstruction which would otherwise impede the flow of water and rust and corrode the pipe material itself. But even the most diligent homeowner cannot avoid the wrath of sewage backup, which may have wreaked havoc on their drainage pipes. For example, you may have purchased an older home in which the previous landlord barely bothered to do upkeep of their plumbing system, let alone take care of any clogs. If that’s the case, you need sewer line replacement. It’s critical to allow a professional plumber to thoroughly inspect your home’s plumbing system and its wastewater lines and to potentially get rid of any clogs before they proceed with a sewer line replacement.

Our clients can expect our attentive plumber to fully assess the following:

  • All plumbing fixtures, including toilet, sink, bathtub, shower
  • All water-based appliances, such as dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators, water heaters, etc.
  • Filtrations systems, including the water softener
  • Sewer cleanout
  • All water supply and drain lines
  • Emergency mechanisms, including the backwater valve, sump pump, and storm overflow

Upon completion of your plumbing inspection, you will be provided with an official list of recommendations for repairs, replacements, and installations, which will help you prioritize if a sewer line replacement is suitable for your needs at the moment. Apart from uncovering a clog, an inspection also lets us gather useful clues about the exact circumstance of a broken sewer pipe and the most effective methods for a possible sewer line replacement. However, be aware that a professional inspection only gives us a bird's eye view of your drainage lines and does not allow us to hone in on any nitty-gritty details of a damaged sewer pipe. Sometimes we have to take a plunge into your sewer lines before we can commit to a sewer line replacement, for example, through a drain camera inspection.

Video Camera Inspection

A plumbing inspection will give your agile plumber the gist of the most difficult areas of your drainage lines. Following this, a video camera inspection will magnify the most problematic areas for not only a difficult clog but any broken pipes. Usually, for a sewer line replacement, a drain camera inspection is mandatory rather than optional, as besides highlighting the damages to your sewer line, it also helps to differentiate deeper clogs from more shallow ones. Our expert plumber will insert a small video camera attached to a flexible cable and bright LED light to be maneuvered around the twists, turns, and crevices of your drain pipes only to record real-time and HD footage and display it on a CCTV monitor for you to witness. As the camera tracks any damages in your sewer line, it will transmit a signal receiver which will indicate which areas have the most troublesome clogs that need to be removed before we can attempt a trenchless sewer line repair service. At the end of the day, we don’t know what’s brewing in the deep lagoons of your drain lines, so it’s best to take extra precautions to scrub away any clinging debris and scrub away intrusive clogs. If anything, for a Dallas sewer line replacement, a drain camera inspection will allow us how to best acknowledge damages rendered and how to most effectively approach a pipe relining or busting to replace the damaged portion of the pipe.

Pipe Relining And Pipe Bursting

Lastly, after playing an inspector gadget of sorts, we will finally conduct a sewer line replacement. Property owners have, up until now, realized the amount of effort we have invested toward gathering information regarding the nature of the broken and damaged sewage pipe. All of this extra preparation is crucial to go ahead with the sewer line replacement. As mentioned above, we won’t have to actually remove the entire sewer line but only replace it piece-by-piece in fragments. For starters, for pipe relining, we will utilize a flexible tube with an inflatable pouch that spans the entirety of the damaged and old pipe and directly insert it. Moreover, your nimble plumber will inflate the pouch to the point in which it aligns with the walls of your sewage pipe. After it has hardened and cured, the inflatable pouch is removed and leaves behind a durable pipe lining. Particularly, pipe relining is most effective for minor damages such as hairline cracks, fractures, and small holes. Furthermore, if we find that the damage to your sewer line is more extensive and widespread, we will move forward with a pipe bursting. But don’t fret! We won’t ever use dynamite explosives, and it’s a safe process. Instead, we opt for hydraulic fracturing for your sewer line replacement, in which we will break away damaged parts of the old pipe and make space for a brand-new one. We interweave a durable and robust pipe, all without having to physically remove and cut out the old one.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sewer Line Replacement in Dallas

Why Is A Sewer Line Replacement Compulsory?

The be-all, end-all of unresolved clogs leads to your household’s dirty and used wastewater being hurled back into your home’s basement and water-based fixtures and appliances. Mostly, a clog is due to tossing down an object that you must otherwise be more mindful of instead of throwing into your trash can or composter. Over time, this accumulation of debris and residue coalesces into a solid blockage that readily lingers on your pipe’s walls. If not for your daily routines and behaviors, a clog is also the result of a heavy rainstorm that may have led to flooding, only made worse if you have an old and broken sewer line in need of repair or replacement. Either way, it’s best to be proactive about the aftermath of a rigid clog or potential flash flood, or else you risk a sewer line replacement due to a damaged and collapsed sewer line.

What Are Some Telltale Signs Your Sewer Line Has Collapsed?

  • Multiple, slow, or sluggish drains
  • Gurgling or bubbling sounds
  • Frequent and tedious clogs
  • Foul odors wafting from plumbing fixtures
  • Damp and discolored patches on ceilings due to burst pipe
  • Mold or mildew growth on ceilings and walls
  • Wall cracks due to an impacted foundation
  • Pest invasion
  • And the most obvious sign is dirty wastewater being spewed from your plumbing fixtures!

Is A Burst Sewer Pipe Covered By Insurance?

This depends on your insurance services provider and the extent of the damages rendered. Most home insurance companies normally cover cleaning and repairs due to the aftermath damage of a burst pipe. But there may or may not be a disclaimer that they will only provide partial or complete coverage based on whether or not the plumbing problem was sudden and accidental. It’s always best to confirm this beforehand with your insurance agent and ask what exactly is included in your contract.

What Does A Sewer Line Backup Look Like?

From the early onset, you tend to notice you have slow drains more often than not, especially if you find your sinks, showers, and bathtubs take forever to completely drain away. This highlights that something is severely wrong with your drainage lines, and an obstacle is blocking out the sewer pipe and preventing wastewater from flowing through. And if you fail to address a sewer line replacement sooner or later, your plumbing fixture, such as your shower head, will begin to spurt out raw sewage water during your next shower.
