Sewer Line Repair in Detroit

If you had the choice of getting a new car, or repairing a broken one you had, which one would you choose? You probably thought of the right answer was repairing, assuming it is cheaper. Even if the repair will take a few days, that’s ok. You need the car and you don’t want to spend the money on a new one.

But what if we told you that this new car is cheaper and better than the one you want to repair? Not only that, but we can give it to you in a matter of hours.

Unfortunately for you, we are not in the car business. But this example is an illustration of the kind of work we do at Mr Rooter Detroit.

The traditional way to repair sewer lines involves three things:

  • Digging
  • Repairing or replacing
  • Restoring

The problem with this old approach is that it’s expensive, it takes days or weeks to complete and it leaves you with another expensive restoration project you didn’t have to pay for. Traditional plumbing companies will tell you that excavating—destroying—your yard is a necessary evil. But what they won’t tell you is that, along with your traditional sewer repair bill, you’ll need to add the cost of restoration.

So now you’re looking at weeks of work over something that we could have fixed for you in hours.

How Do We Fix Sewer Lines?

Our approach is simple. We give you a brand new sewer line with the least amount of destruction, time and cost possible. Our goal is for your home or business to be back to normal in record time.

Our trenchless sewer repair service really should be called sewer renewal service, but just for the sake of argument, let’s stick with repairing. What we do can be simplified in five steps:

  • Inspect. We begin with a camera inspection. This helps us see what kind of problems your sewer pipe has. Depending on the problem is the approach we take for the next step.
  • Clean. We prepare the pipe by either hydro-jetting it or even use a drill in case there is something bigger blocking the pipe. In most cases all it takes is a quick water pressure blast, but the goal is always to leave the pipe open for the next step.
  • Renew. This is our signature move. We insert and place an inflatable liner into the damaged sewer line. We fill this liner with a liquid epoxy which will become the new sewer line. Once everything is in place, we inflate the liner, let the epoxy coat the old pipe so it takes the shape of it, and then we cure the epoxy so it hardens and becomes the new pipe.
  • Inspect again. We are almost done. We perform a second camera inspection to make sure the pipe is completely sealed and where it needs to be.
  • Test. Now that we are sure that the new pipe is ready to use, we do a test so you see how great it works now.

Symptoms of pipes that have been neglected, damaged, or run their course are pooling water, odor, and slow draining. Leaking pipes and flooding are obvious signs of an issue and should never be ignored. It’s best to call for maintenance as soon as possible to avoid the situation progressing into something worse.

In the past, sewer line repair involved digging trenches through the landscape at your property to access the sewer line and then manually replace it. Today, Mr. Rooter Plumbing proudly offers our clients trenchless repair options. Trenchless repair methods allow you to skip the hassles associated with traditional sewer repair, including costly labor and property remediation. Trenchless methods also take less time to complete, making them ideal for home and business owners alike who appreciate speedy service and getting back to their routines as quickly as possible.

The Trenchless Sewer Repair Process In Detroit Homes

At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we use pipe lining in the majority of trenchless repairs. Pipe lining involves the application of an epoxy resin to renew the inside of the existing pipeline. A felt liner soaked in resin is inserted into the sewer line through an existing access point. The liner is pulled through and inflated until it hardens to the inside of the pipes, creating a new pipe within the old.

This method is popular because it can be completed in a day or two, eliminates property damage from the repair process, and the resin is a superior piping material. The new epoxy pipe lasts for fifty years or more, is environmentally-friendly, and will never corrode. It even repels tree root invasion, which is a common cause of sewer line damage and clogging.
