Damage to your sewage line usually comes from poor maintenance, regular ground freezing and thawing, excess debris buildup, tree root intrusion, or other natural causes and age. Many homes built over 40 years ago may begin experiencing issues. Older pipes are often susceptible to damage over time because they were constructed using traditional materials like steel or cast iron.
When you suspect your sewage line may need to be replaced, contact the licensed plumbers at Mr. Rooter Plumbing to investigate your home’s plumbing for cracks or other damages. Some of these issues can be repaired, while others may need to be replaced using a trenchless repair method.
Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement
What is trenchless sewer line repair? This plumbing replacement technique has become popular during the last 15 years and is considered the best and most noninvasive method for removing old sewage lines. Using traditional trenching, a plumber would use a backhoe to dig up your yard, driveway, and possibly the street in front of your house. With trenching, the homeowner was typically responsible for paying for rerouting traffic or any damages to city-owned property like sewage lines.
Trenchless replacement is a popular option because trenchless sewer line replacement:
- Reduces excavation
- Minimizes public disruption
- Decreases restoration costs
- Can match or increase your current pipe’s diameter
Mr. Rooter Plumbing in Oneida offers pipe bursting for trenchless sewer line repair so that you and your family can get your home's plumbing back to running like it should with minimal disturbances.
What Is Pipe Bursting and How Does It Work?
Pipe bursting is an ideal replacement method because it only uses two access holes. We use the existing sewer line to guide a new pipe into the old one using a hydraulic pipe bursting system. Due to the increased pressure, the old pipe will break apart, leaving only the new plumbing. Pipe bursting can be completed in just one day in many cases.
The process includes:
- A bursting rod and machinery will be set up through one access hole.
- On the other side of the pipe, a launch pit will then be dug. Depending on the existing pipe material, we will decide whether or not to install a rolling blade cutter rod. The new pipe is then attached to the second access point.
- Using the existing pipe, the new pipe is threaded through, bursting through the old one.
Mr. Rooter Plumbing in Oneida uses the latest pipe-bursting technology to make sure you get the most effective solution.
