Sewer and Water Main Line Replacement – A properly functioning sewer line is the most convenient and hygienic way to remove thousands of gallons of wastewater a year from your home. What happens when there’s a problem? Most people think the local city or county will fix them, but all sewer and water lines under your property are your responsibility. To make matters worse, sewer line breaks are often not covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy. There are a lot of home improvement plumbing projects do-it-yourselfers can tackle, but installing a sewer line isn’t one of them. A professional plumbing contractor like High 5 Plumbing has the training and background to ensure that every facet of your sewer installation is performed properly and meets all codes and regulations. Factors such as slop in the line, soil composition, and compaction can all have an effect on the future reliability of any sewer or waterline repairs or replacements. Years ago, diagnosing a sewer or waterline problem used to involve a lot of guesswork. Today, High 5 can use a video pipe inspection to identify a problem and help determine whether your sewer line can be repaired or if a full replacement is your best option. Even if the video inspection reveals that a full replacement is required, digging up your yard may not be. Thanks to modern technology, the experts at High 5 can often use a method called “trenchless pipe replacement.” This process involves a machine to break up the old pipe while installing a new pipe at the same time. Your yard stays beautiful and you get a new sewer or waterline that will last for decades. No heavy excavating equipment or digging up big sections of your yard necessary.
The most common problems that can disrupt your sewer or waterline service are:
- Root intrusion
- Broken, cracked or collapsed lines
- Sags or “bellies” in lines
- Leaking joints
- Offset pipe connections under ground
- Foreign objects blocking lines
How do you know you might have a sewer line problem? Watch for some of these common indicators:
- Water backing up on to the floor surrounding a floor drain
- A foul stench coming from drains
- Needing to have your line cleared more than once every two years
- Gurgling in your lower-level toilets or floor drains
- Bathtubs or laundry lines that drain slower than usual
