Unleash the Power of Expert Sewer Repair: Restoring Flow with Precision and Reliability.

Understanding Your Sewer Line

1. Lifespan and Material of Sewer Pipe

Sewer pipes, especially those made of clay tile or cast iron, have an expected lifespan of approximately 30 years. Many of the lines currently in use have exceeded this lifespan, which is a key factor in their ongoing issues.


2. Implications of Ageing Sewer Pipes

As sewer lines age, they are more likely to fail, leading to problems such as blockages and leaks. Regular inspection and maintenance of older sewer lines can help detect potential issues early and extend their functional life.

The Root Problem in Sewer Pipes

1. Entry and Damage by Tree Roots: 

  • The major concern with tree roots is that when they infiltrate the sewer pipes, they cause damage. As the roots continue to grow within the pipe, the damage becomes more severe, leading to potential pipe collapse.

2. Short-Term vs. Long-Term Solutions:

  • Periodic root cutting can serve as a short-term solution. However, if this action needs to be carried out frequently, it indicates that the pipe is consistently being damaged and might soon require emergency repair or replacement. 

3. The Necessity for Replacement:

  • In cases of frequent root infiltration, pipe replacement might be a more cost-effective and long-lasting solution than recurrent repairs. It prevents emergencies and ensures the sewer system continues to function optimally.

Safety Measures and Case Individuality

1. Individual Case Approach: 

  • Each case of sewer line repair or replacement is unique, influenced by factors like pipe material, age, and environmental conditions. This necessitates an individual approach to devise the most effective solution.

2. Safety Precautions:

  • Regardless of the uniqueness of the case, safety remains paramount. Utilizing the latest trench safety technologies and following OSHA guidelines ensures the well-being of our plumbers and the effectiveness of the repair or replacement process.

Our Process

Facing issues with root intrusion or regular drain blockages? It might be a sign that your sewer line requires replacement. Here’s how we address this issue:


Step 1 – Diagnosis (Identifying the Issue):

We conduct a comprehensive diagnostic on every sewer line, especially those composed of clay tile or cast iron that have been in place for more than 30 years. This allows us to understand the underlying problems and identify potential solutions.


Step 2 – Site Analysis (Understanding the Environment):

We consider external factors influencing the situation, such as trees, sidewalks, underground and overhead utilities, roads, and neighboring properties. Each of these can present unique challenges to the sewer line repair or replacement process.


Step 3 -Customized Repair Strategy (Crafting the Solution):

Based on the diagnostic results and site analysis, we develop a custom repair strategy for each individual case, acknowledging that no two repairs are identical.


Step 4 – Safety Measures (Prioritizing Safety):

Safety is at the forefront of all our operations. We utilize the latest trench safety technologies and strictly adhere to OSHA-certified practices to ensure a safe excavation process.


Step 5 – Long-Term Considerations (Planning Ahead):

We address commonly asked questions, like why it isn’t feasible to consistently remove tree roots annually. Root intrusion damages pipes over time, leading to eventual pipe collapse and requiring emergency repairs. Regular root removal suggests a more substantial repair may be on the horizon.
