Underground sewer or water line repair or replacement can involve anything from a small hole in a basement floor to an entire yard trench. Every problem is unique and requires professional plumbing attention to determine the best course of action. Once we are able to identify the problem we can let you know what the next steps are to resolve the issue.
Sewer and Water Line Repair Services
Repairs can be done when only a part or certain section of the pipe is broken or compromised. We have qualified professionals on hand to locate the issue, determine the best way to repair it, and complete the repair itself. Whether the pipe is copper, galvanized, PVC, pex, SDR, cast iron, clay, concrete, or any other material we can handle any needed repair. If a full replacement is not needed, the option to repair is quite a bit cheaper in most cases.
Sewer and Water Line Replacement Services
A full line replacement should be done if the entire line is compromised, multiple spot repairs are too costly, or simply for peace of mind. Many things can cause an entire service line to fail. Roots, rust, ground shifting, old age, or even some chemicals can cause problems with certain kinds of pipe. Roots can push the pipe apart and form a kind of net that catches solids in sewer lines causing back ups. Rust or corrosion can cause the pipe to deteriorate or become clogged. Ground shifting can cause pipes to become crushed, misaligned, or sloped the wrong way. All pipes will eventually fail due to old age. Chemicals can also dissolve some types of pipes. In the case of clay pipe, for example, the clay will always fall apart at some point. Probably sooner rather than later. It is usually the best option to replace the whole sewer line if it is made of clay, and cheaper in the long run.
