Sewer Line Repair & Replacement

Cracked sewer pipes can be more than just a costly repair—they can result in extensive and pricey property damage and lead to serious health risks. Sewer line repair is the first line of defense when a sewer line fails. If the sewer line can’t be repaired, sewer line replacement is the only other option.

If you suspect that your sewer line needs repair or replacement, it’s vital that you call a professional plumber as soon as possible. Every additional day that you spend waiting creates an opportunity for water damage and other disasters to accumulate on your property.

Fortunately, Mr. Rooter® Plumbing is your local source for quality sewer repair and replacement at any time. Below we explain some causes of sewer line damage, tips that can help you identify the problem, and the services we provide to give you solutions:

Common Causes of Sewer Line Damage:

  • Poor maintenance
  • Buildup of hair, debris, grease, sludge, oil, toilet paper, etc.
  • Tree roots infiltrating sewer pipe holes/joints
  • Regular ground freezes/thaws
  • Earthquakes, nearby earth movement, heavy construction nearby, etc.
  • Wear and tear from aging
  • Poor sewer pipe layout, design, and/or installation
  • Backup from a city’s sewer line

In general, any type of pipe—regardless of the materials it’s made of—can break due to extreme inner (water) and outer (ground) pressure.

Signs of a Broken Sewer Pipe

  • Strange gurgling noises coming from your toilet(s)
  • Lack of water in your toilet(s)
  • Slow draining bathtub/failure to drain
  • Noticeable sewage backup in your toilet/tub
  • Sewer odor in your basement, yard, or other areas of your property
  • Significantly greener grass near your sewage pipe
  • Flooded yard

Broken Sewer Line Solutions

The plumbing and sewer line repair experts at Mr. Rooter Plumbing can assess your sewer pipe cracks and damage. We want to take steps to avoid sewer line replacement at all costs, and you probably do too. While your property layout and sewer system are unique, there may be some basic issues that we can address. These are some of the most common repairs and replacements we perform:

  • Pipe relining: Using this method, we’ll give you new pipes from the inside out. We can also line existing sewer pipes with a sort of “sleeve” to prevent pipe cracks. First, we’ll clean out the pipe. Then we’ll apply the lining, which will harden in just a few hours. This is an excellent solution that takes far less time, effort, and disruption than traditional sewer line repair, without sacrificing effectiveness.
  • Burst pipe hydraulic replacement: If your sewer pipe is too damaged, we may need to pull a new sewer pipe through the old one. This trenchless technique involves using hydraulics to further break apart the damaged old one and seamlessly replace it with a new pipe.
  • Preventive pipe maintenance: It is important to help prevent sewer line damage from occurring in the first place. With regular sewer line inspections and drain cleaning services, you can keep major debris and buildup out of your pipes and avoid cracks, clogs, or bursts.
