What to Consider Prior to Trenchless Pipe Replacement

broken pipes

Your sewer line is an integral part of your home. While it’s out of sight, it keeps your property clean and safe from disease-causing contaminants that may harm your family. However, there will come a time when your sewer line gets damaged or past its prime, and you may need more than just trenchless sewer repair in North Fort Myers, FL.

At The Plumber’s Plumber, we’re here to walk you through your options and determine if your sewer line is due for a complete replacement. Keep reading as we share the top factors to consider before replacing your sewer line.

Signs of Sewer Line Issues

Even if your sewer line is buried underground, you can check for signs it needs urgent attention. This includes gurgling sounds from the drains, unpleasant sewage odors, frequent backups, and wet patches on your lawn. Although these problems don’t require trenchless pipe replacement, they at least indicate the need for repairs or upkeep.

Results of Sewer Inspection

To avoid any guesswork, have an expert from our team inspect your sewer line to assess its overall condition. We use specialized cameras to look for cracks, obstructions, root damage, and broken sections in the pipe. After the procedure, we will discuss our findings with you and determine whether a replacement is necessary or trenchless pipe repair will suffice.

Consider Your Sewer Line Replacement Options

If your sewer line is severely damaged, we recommend replacing it to ensure issues won’t recur. At The Plumber’s Plumber, we offer two options: traditional sewer excavation and pipe bursting. 

Sewer excavation involves digging trenches to expose and replace the damaged sewer pipe. We often opt for this method if the sewer line damage is in a hard-to-reach area, your yard has poor soil conditions, or the utility lines are close to the affected pipe.

Meanwhile, pipe bursting is a trenchless sewer replacement method that uses a “bursting head” that breaks the old pipe while simultaneously laying a new pipe. Unlike traditional methods, it keeps your surroundings intact from start to finish. While it’s a bit more expensive, it’s faster and spares you from the costs of restoring your yard and landscaping.

Let The Plumber’s Plumber put an end to your sewer line woes. We offer an extensive range of services, including sewer camera inspection, trenchless pipe lining, and traditional sewer repair. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
