Is Sewer Pipe Repair Important?


There are few home repair issues that homeowners dread as much as sewer pipe repair

In the past, the need for sewer pipe repair meant that you would be unable to use any water in your home for an extended period of time, you would be paying thousands of dollars for repairs, and your yard and landscaping would be completely destroyed. 

Sewer pipe damage can’t always be avoided. Over time, pipes degrade, and tree roots can grow into the pipes. These factors can lead to a sewer pipe cracking or bursting.

Fortunately, the options in sewer pipe repair have greatly improved. It can be done much more quickly and inexpensively in the past, without minimal damage to your yard. 

Get Your Sewer Pipe Repair 

Scott English Plumbing offers trenchless sewer repair options. This means that, instead of having to dig a trench the entire length of the pipe, remove the old pipe, and install a new one, we can repair your sewer pipe with no trench.

We’ll use our video inspection services to look inside the pipes and figure out exactly what the problem is and where it is located. Then we’ll dig just one or two access points to get to the damaged sewer pipe.

There are two ways that we can do trenchless sewer pipe repair: pipe bursting and pipe relining. 

The pipe bursting method requires the digging of two access holes, one on each side of the sewer line. A new sewer pipe is pulled through the old, damaged sewer pipe, and the old pipe is fractured, or burst. 

Pipe bursting can be performed even if the lateral sewer line has collapsed, providing that there is sufficient space to pull a cable through it.

In the pipe lining, method, a pipe liner, or cured in place pipe, is installed inside the old, damaged pipe. This way, the old pipe doesn’t have to be removed. The plumber will need to create one access hole in order to insert the pipe liner. 

The pipe liner is made of a flexible, resin tube. This tube is inserted into the old pipe. Once in place, the tube is inflated. The resin must cure for a few hours, and then you have a solid, new pipe.

Sewer pipe repair isn’t nearly as bad as it used to be. Scott English Plumbing offers options for sewer pipe repair that are fast, easy, and don’t create a huge mess in your yard that you’re left to clean up.
