Expert and Minimally Invasive Sewer Line Repair Is Just a Phone Call Away

Sewer Line Repair

Sometimes you don’t just need your drains cleared – you may actually need sewer line repair. The risks of damaged sewer lines include flooding and groundwater contamination. Besides impacting the environment and water supply, you want to avoid damage to your most valuable asset: your home.

Brown’s Heating and Plumbing has been serving customers since 1964. Our years of experience mean we’ll approach your sewer line repair job with a trained eye. Sometimes a sewer line cleaning is warranted to open up a blockage. Other times, we recommend a small portion of the sewer line be repaired and replaced to remove a flow restriction. If a complete replacement is needed to correct your issue, count on us for competitive parts and labor prices along with a comprehensive warranty.

Common Reasons for Sewer Line Repair

The sewer lines that support your home are probably not something you ever think about until there is an issue. Complications can arise from these common factors:

  • Sewer pipes break, crack, or collapse due to frozen ground or settling soil.
  • Sewer pipes become blocked by grease or debris.
  • Sewer pipes corrode and deteriorate over time due to a limited life expectancy or outdated materials.
  • Joints between sewer pipes leak due to improper installation or damage.
  • Trees and landscaping roots damage the sewer pipes or prevent cleaning.

Types of Sewer Line Repair

Both traditional and trenchless repair methods may be used. An open cut or trench may be needed to gain access to the repair area. In other cases, landscaping may be preserved and the work area may be limited using effective repair tools. Small access holes at each end of the damaged area can be used to insert replacement pipe and remove the damaged pipe simultaneously.

If the damaged pipe can be salvaged, an inner pipe within the damaged pipe can be inserted creating a smooth and durable inner wall. Rest assured, Brown’s experts will assess the sewer line damage, recommend the appropriate repair, and do what’s right for your sewer lines and your property.
