When you think of sewer line repair work, what do you think of? A major mess? Invasive digging? Traditionally, sewer technicians have to dig to access sewer lines which can lead to ruined landscaping and a long repair process.
Instead of tearing up your lawn, Peak Sewers & Underground Services has a better solution!
Trenchless Sewer Repair
Trenchless sewer repair is just that – sewer repair that does not require digging a trench. Our no-dig techniques allow us to repair damaged water lines and sewer pipes while protecting your lawn and landscaping from destruction.
Apart from preserving your lawn, there are many other benefits to choosing trenchless sewer repair:
- It’s quicker than traditional repairs and is often completed in one day
- It cuts costs since you won’t have to pay professionals to clean or repair your property
- It is far less invasive than traditional methods of sewer and water line repair and preserves your property without damaging your lawn, walkways, and gardens
- It is effective and meets all applicable standards and guidelines
- It can make winter repairs easier, as there is no need to excavate the frozen ground
How It Works
Trenchless sewer repair works by inserting a high-tech and flexible tube into the existing draining pipes. This tube is saturated with epoxy, which cures and hardens to create a new structural lining – basically creating a new pipe inside of the old pipe.
This flexible tube can navigate around bends and connections and, once hardened, locking out pipe issues such as cracks, holes, channeling, age deterioration, scaling, or root intrusion. As long as a substantial part of the original pipe is intact, trenchless sewer repair can be used.
This new liner has a life expectancy of 50 years and the new epoxy surface is smoother than many older materials, potentially enhancing the flow capacity of the pipes. After the new pipe lining is installed, specialized equipment is guided through the pipes to open the branch lines and restore drainage functions.
Signs Of a Sewer Line Issue
When you run into a sewer line issue, there are some signs that it may need to be repaired. If you notice any of the following signs, do not hesitate to call Peak Sewer to have the problem inspected and remediated:
- Clogged Drains: One clogged drain could be an isolated problem but if you have multiple clogged drains throughout your home, this is the number one sign that there is a clog in the main sewer line.
- Bad Smells: If there are foul, sewage-like odours coming from multiple drains, this can indicate a blockage in your sewer line.
- Slow Drains: If you find your water is draining more slowly than usual, this could mean there is some kind of blockage in your sewer lines such as a tree root or a collapsed pipe.
- Toilet Backup: Water backing up in your toilets, or even overflowing, likely means something is blocking your sewer line.
- Moisture in Basement: Water droplets around your drains in the basement when you haven’t been using them lately warrants a call to a plumber.
- Mold: Knowing what mold looks like and how it smells can help you quickly determine if you have a sewer line issue.
- Beautiful Grass: We all want a beautiful lawn but if you notice that your yard has especially fast-growing and luscious green grass, this can indicate a sewage leak.
- Wet Yard: While it’s normal for your yard to retain water after a rainstorm, this should only last for a day or two. Having puddles in your lawn when it hasn’t rained is a sign of a sewer line crack.
Because trenchless sewer repair is quick and less invasive than traditional methods, there’s no reason to put off calling a sewer technician if you have an issue!
