Frequently Ask Questions

You have questions on sewer line and water line services. Let us answer them for you. A sewer line replacement can be a stressful and confusing process. Let us alleviate some of your concern by providing you with some answers.

One of the telltale signs of a broken sewer line is foul odor.

Abnormally slow draining sinks and/or toilets.

Sewage back flow in the toilet or tub, and molds.

You may also notice some musty patches in your lawn, drain blockage, and cracks in walls due to dampness.

If you experience any of these, get your sewer line inspected

After having thoroughly diagnosed your main sewer line with an inspection camera, we will recommend a cost effective solution. Following your approval, we will begin to coordinate with local municipalities to ensure all repairs fall within city specs. Inspection/locating companies will be coordinated to ensure no damage is done to your home’s underground infrastructure. We will then begin trenching the predesignated area. Once we have uncovered your sewer line, we will perform the appropriate repairs and have the repair inspected by a city inspector. Finally, the trench will then be backfilled and patched.

Pipelining

Pipelining can be done to replace any kind of pipe. Before fixing the pipe, the plumber inspects the existing sewer with a camera to know the damage. Any blockage is cleared away, and pipes are measured. The plumber uses a replacement tube, fills it with epoxy, and inverts it to attach the walls of existing pipes. It creates a new seal, that is cured with steam or LED blue light to fix any damage. As the moisture dries out from the resin-infused tube, the pipe is restored. This is also called slip lining or Cured in Place Pipe (CIPP). There is a variety of material that can be used for the replacement tube as PVC liner, or fiberglass liner, etc.

Pipe Bursting

Hydraulic power generators and expander heads are the key equipment for pipe bursting. It involves the bursting of an older pipeline with a new one in the tow. It is another method of trenchless sewer replacement. The expander head breaks the existing pipe, then the pulling rods attached to it pull the new pipe behind it, replacing the sewer line.
