Old Lines

Today, there are pipes made from heavy-duty plastics that are more watertight than materials that have been traditionally used to make pipes. If you live in an older home, there’s a good change that your pipes are made from clay, cast iron, or concrete. As these plumbing systems age, they become vulnerable to rain and seasonal freezing and thawing. Pipes can develop leaks that worsen over time or attract tree roots. Once roots get into the seams of the pipes or a crack in a pipe section, they can wind up blocking the flow of water as they invade the pipe system.

While we can cut the roots out or even jet them out with water spray, they will come back. Consequently, many customers opt for us to clean out their sewer lines on an annual basis in order to prevent the roots from invading too deeply and causing a blockage. If the problem does become serious enough to cause a blockage, we can investigate and let you know all of your options. You may be able to repair your line or will need to consider replacement.

Careful Inspection

To understand the problem happening with your drains and pipes, we’ll introduce an in-line camera to your plumbing system to find out exactly what’s going on.

Underground Water Line Repair Options

Today, we have different options to address sewer and water line problems. In order to make repairs or achieve a replacement, we can dig a trench to access the lines. This is invariably a messy job; it involves digging up your front or back property. Although this traditional method is effective, we can sometimes achieve our goals with a trenchless method where we are able to dig beneath the problem area and replace the line without having to dig up large sections of the landscape. This method is more efficient and often less expensive because it requires fewer earth-moving measures.
