Sewer Line Repair and Replacement Services in Syracuse, NY

Your home’s sewage plumbing is essential for maintaining daily functions. The sewage line removes wastewater from all of the plumbing in your home — including the toilets, showers and sinks — and whisks that water into the main sewage line. However, over time these sewer lines may break down, crack or crumble:

Does Your Sewer Line Need to Be Replaced?

Signs that your sewage line may need to be replaced include:

  • Gurgling from toilets
  • Low water levels
  • Slow draining tubs or toilets
  • Noticeable sewage backup in toilets or bathtubs
  • Soggy or raised patches in yard
  • Unusually lush patches — fast growing or vibrant
  • Sewage smell around your property

The cause of your broken sewage line could be poor maintenance, a buildup of debris, tree root damage or other natural interference, regular freezing or thawing or the age of the plumbing system.

When you begin noticing signs that your sewage line is damaged, consider replacement to save time and money, add a more modern and durable sewer system and have better sewer line monitoring. Over time, calling a plumber to perform regular repairs can cost a lot more money than taking the plunge to have the entire system replaced. Your old sewage line, if your home was built over 40 years ago, is most likely outdated and made from traditional materials like steel or cast iron. With modern plumbing solutions, you can have more durable PVC pipe installed as well as technology utilizing sensors and crack detection to alert you to any potential issues with your sewage line.

If you suspect it’s time for a sewer line replacement, call the professionals at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Syracuse to investigate your home’s sewer line for cracks and damage. Some damage may be isolated and easily fixed without it being necessary to replace a larger portion of the line, while others will benefit from having a trenchless sewer line repair.

Trenchless Sewer Line Repair in Syracuse, NY

Trenchless sewer line replacement is the best and most noninvasive method for removing your old plumbing. Traditionally, to replace your home’s sewer line, a plumber would dig up the old pipe using a backhoe through your yard, driveway and often the street directly in front of your home. During traditional trenching, you would be responsible for paying the repairs to city-owned property or sewer lines and rerouting traffic.

Today, when you need a new sewer line, trenchless sewer line repair may be an option. With this method, you can either use pipe bursting to replace or upsize failing, outdated or undersized plumbing. With trenchless replacement techniques, you get the following benefits:

  • Reduced excavation
  • Minimal disruption to your home and surrounding areas
  • Decrease in overall restoration costs
  • Option to increase the pipe diameter (if needed)

Mr. Rooter Plumbing in Syracuse, NY is proud to offer pipe bursting as a trenchless sewer line replacement option.

What Is Pipe Bursting?

Pipe bursting is a method that requires little excavation. Your plumber will only require two access holes on either side of the pipe. The existing plumbing framework is used to guide a new pipe through the old one with little to no disturbance using a hydraulic pipe bursting system. The old pipe will then fracture as a result of the pressure.

Pipe bursting is generally completed in three steps:

  • Through one hole, a bursting rod and additional machinery will be set up.
  • A pipe launch pit will be dug on the other side of the pipe. The technician will then install a rolling blade cutter rod depending on the existing pipe material. The new pipe will then be attached.
  • The new pipe is then threaded through the existing plumbing. The old pipe will then burst and leave your new pipe.

Pipe bursting is a durable replacement option that requires less excavation. The cost of pipe bursting will vary depending on your area’s soil type, depth of the sewers and cost of materials.
