When to Replace a Sewer Line
Many problems with sewer pipes can be fixed with minor sewer repairs, such as trenchless sewer relining. These types of sewer line repairs are suitable for minor cracks and pinhole leaks, but a severely damaged or collapsed sewer line may need to be replaced completely.
Some of the problems that require sewer replacement include:
- Collapsed sewer lines. Corrosion or tree root infestation can break the sewer line apart completely, causing it to collapse. This kind of damage requires sewer pipe replacement, since the line is damaged beyond repair.
- Scale buildup. Scale and calcification are mineral deposits inside of sewer and plumbing pipes, which result from dissolved materials in the local water. These deposits can’t be easily removed, and they can restrict the flow of water through the pipe, increasing the likelihood of clogs and sewer backflow. Severely scale-afflicted pipes will need to be replaced.
- Corrosion. Metal sewer pipes will eventually wear down from decades of gradual corrosion. Eventually, old pipes will need to be replaced. PVC pipe and cure-in-place pipe liners are resistant to most forms of corrosion.
When you call a local plumbing company for emergency sewer service, the plumber will determine whether the problem can be repaired. If not, they may recommend sewer replacement if it’s the only real option.
Pipe Bursting for Trenchless Sewer Replacement
In most cases, sewer pipe replacement requires excavation. Digging a trench allows us to access the old pipe and remove it, then install a new pipe to replace it. However, in some situations, we may be able to replace a sewer line with pipe bursting instead.
Pipe bursting is a trenchless solution for sewer pipe replacement. Using a hydraulic bursting head, we break the old sewer line apart completely. For us to consider pipe bursting, the line is usually broken or collapsed to begin with. The fragments of the old, damaged sewer pipe are pushed outward into the soil as the bursting head moves through it. Behind the bursting head, a cable pulls a new pipe into place.
Pipe bursting has some useful advantages over traditional open cut excavation for sewer replacement, including:
- Less traffic disruption during municipal sewer replacement.
- Shorter completion time
- Less business interruption during commercial sewer replacement
- Minimal damage to paved areas
- Less ground disturbance
Pipe bursting can also be used to increase the size of an existing pipe. The length, depth, and width of the pipes, as well as soil conditions, can affect whether pipe bursting is a feasible option for sewer replacement.
Municipal Sewer Main Line Replacement Contractors
At All Done Company, we also offer municipal sewer replacement services. Like residential and commercial sewer pipes, municipal sewer main lines can age and become damaged. At that point, they will need to be completely replaced. Municipal sewer replacement often requires excavation, which can disrupt nearby traffic, businesses, or residences. We can sometimes use pipe bursting, although it depends on the pipe and the surrounding soil.
