Is It Time to Repair or Replace Your Sewer Main?
Sewer mains are much larger and more durable then the other pipes on our home plumbing systems. However, even sewer mains will gradually deteriorate and will need to be replaced or repaired. It is best to repair or replace your sewer main before it becomes so deteriorated that it fails on you completely. Some of the signs that it is time to repair or replace your sewer main are:
• You are experiencing drain backups
• Multiple drains in your home are having flow problems
• There are signs of a sewage spill in your yard (smells, wet spots, mold growth…)
Sewer Repair and Replacement Options
Sewer problems need to be assessed on an individual basis before a solution can be recommended. The first step is to perform a video inspection of the sewer main to determine what is causing the issues. Common sewer problems include: clogs, cracks, corrosion, misalignment, and bellying.
There are several methods which can be used to repair or replace sewer mains:• Trenchless Slip Lining: For sewer mains which damaged but not collapsed, this method can be used. It involves slipping a smaller diameter pipe into the old sewer. This isn’t always the ideal choice because the smaller sewer pipe can become clogged more easily, but is a good solution when budget is a concern.
• Sewer Pipe Relining: For sewer mains which are cracked, corroded, or damaged by tree roots, pipe relining is a good solution. An inflatable tube is put into the old sewer. The tube is then inflated and a resin coating causes it to bond to the old sewer main. The tube is very strong and reinforced the old sewer.
• Sewer Pipe Bursting: When sewer mains are misaligned, bellied, very severely corroded, or bend/curve, then pipe bursting is often used for replacement. A machine breaks apart the old sewer pipe while pulling a new sewer main in its place. Generally only two access holes need to be dug to perform pipe bursting.
• Traditional Dig and Replace Method: This method of sewer replacement is the simplest. Digging equipment is used to access the old sewer main so a new sewer main can be put in its place. However, because it requires costly equipment, is time consuming to perform, and damages property, it is rarely recommended for sewer replacement.
