Sewer lines are important in being able to transport all the runoff from your home. Without our sewer lines, we’d be stuck in the medieval times using a chamber pot whenever we had to use the bathroom. Sometimes, these lines break leaving you in a heap of trouble and odor that can knock out the toughest guy on the block.
If you have a broken or cracked sewer line, you might be thinking that your whole front yard will have to be dug up and your plants will be destroyed. Not at 5 Star Best Plumbing. Our experts have mastered the skill of sewer liner installation.
With the help of modern technology, there is an invasive way to repair your old sewer lines without any crazy digging and remodeling. The installation of the liner is rather simple. Our plumbers will inspect the sewer line to assess the damage that is has sustained with a camera inspection. Once we figure out where the damage is located and how much needs repair, we will clean out the sewer line with a hydro jetter as best as we can to remove any contents inside and have a clean area to work with. Then, we measure how much material will be needed and then we dig out an area to gain access. After, the resin is mixed with other materials in order to create the liner that will be inserted by air pressure into the sewer line. Once the process is completed, we inspect every inch of the new liner installation to ensure the highest quality. You can rest assured that you won’t have to worry about the broken sewer line any longer as these liners can last well over 50 years.
Sewer lines break because of:
Ground movement- When the earth’s plates move during even the smallest earthquake, it can shift the floor beneath your home. Pipes are linear and if they are disturbed by movement around them, they bend and break because of the stress.
Corrosion/age- As sewer lines age, they begin to degrade. Due to the materials used to create them, they often rust and become brittle with all the contents running through them. Corrosion weakens the metal and easily leads to a broken pipe.
Tree Roots- If you have a big tree on your property, you should be worried about tree roots invading your pipes. Roots are attracted to the water flowing through your pipes causing them to break open the pipes to get access.
If the water takes too long to go down the drain, doesn’t go down at all, or is backing up for multiple lines, you might have a broken sewer pipe. You don’t have to stress anymore because our pros at 5 Star Best Plumbing take care of the whole situation without making a fossil excavation site out of your yard.
