Need A New Sewer Line?

If you have been told that you need to have your sewer line replaced, get a 2nd opinion. Let's face it, one of the most EXPENSIVE home improvements that you will ever have to make is a new sewer line. And, I'm sorry, but we have seen many occasions when the homeowner has been told that they need to have the sewer line replaced. After inspection, all the line needed was to been cleaned out to remain fully functional.

Let's face it, there are instances when the sewer line has just given up. It can't be saved. It's now time to start looking at your options when it comes to getting a new sewer.

Knowing what your options are is a pretty important piece of information. That well manicured yard and beautiful mature trees, not to mention the concrete patio and garage over your sewer line do not have to be in danger!

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

 This method allows you to replace your existing sewer line without ripping apart your landscaping or other structures that are built on top of your sewer line.

As you can see in the illustration above, two holes are needed; a bursting pit and a receiving pit. Typically, a small hole is dug alongside of the foundation and another where the sewer main is located. A cable is run through your existing sewer to the other pit and attached to a pipe bursting head. This bursting head will pull the new line into place while destroying and pushing the old pipe out of the way.

This process utilizes a jointless section of pipe. Instead of using PVC pipe that must be glued together every 10 - 20 feet, the HDPE poly pipe is fused on site prior to the pipe getting pulled underground. Once the pipe is fused together, the internal bead is removed from the pipe, leaving you with a virtual jointless sewer line. This new line will never be able to be penetrated with tree roots or separate ever again.
