One of the worst things you can hear as a home or business owner is that your sewer line is broken or cracked.

While most people probably don’t often stop to think about their sewer system, it plays a critical role in your home or business and allows everything to function smoothly. When issues arise, it can cause serious problems. When sewer pipes break or rupture, sewage is not able to properly drain through your system, which leads to extreme backups. Not only does this create a headache as far as maintenance and cleaning go, but it can also pose health hazards for you and your family, as raw sewage contains many harmful contaminants and bacteria that are not safe for humans. That’s why a prompt repair is a must.

Luckily for you, Robins Plumbing has got you covered with trenchless sewer line repair for your home or business in Phoenix, Glendale, Scottsdale, and the surrounding areas. We work hard to be the plumbing company you can trust, and we’ll make fixing your sewer issues a priority.

What Causes Sewer Issues in Your Home or Business?

There are a number of things that can lead to needing sewer line repair, including:

Sewer Pipe Damage:

When sewer pipes are broken or damaged, sewage is unable to properly drain through your sewer system which leads to extensive backups. This can be caused by shifting soil, settling, construction, etc.

Tree Roots:

Oftentimes, older sewer lines are created using flimsy materials, making it easy for tree roots to grow into the pipe, causing it to break. 

Flushing Debris:

It’s common for household items and debris to get flushed down the toilet, especially if you have young children around. To avoid this, you should make sure that only human waste and toilet paper get flushed, as other items can lead to significant clogs and issues.

Grease in Drains:

When cooking up greasy foods, it can be convenient to wash the grease down the sink. However, the grease will begin to harden as it makes its way down your pipes, leading to blockages and potential bursting. To avoid this, always be sure to pour extra grease into an old can or jar. 

What Is Trenchless Sewer Line Repair?

Sewer line repairs can be a serious headache for home or business owners, as they typically require extensive repairs and intrusive digging. At Robins Plumbing, we know how disruptive these repairs can be, and that’s why we offer trenchless sewer line repairs.

Trenchless sewer line repair is a method of sewer repair that repairs/replaces your sewer pipe without using a trench, so your yard doesn’t have to get completely torn up. Before trenchless sewer line repairs, professional plumbers would have to come to your home or business and dig a large trench around your entire yard or inside the building, creating massive disruptions for you and your neighbors. 

 A video camera is used to precisely diagnose the location of the issues, which allows our local plumbers to get a good idea of what we’re working with without digging any holes! To fix the problem, instead of digging up your whole yard, we only need to dig one or two access points to reach the line.

Types of Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

There are two main ways that trenchless sewer line repair can be completed: pipe bursting and pipe relining. Below you will find more information about each type.

Pipe Bursting:

Pipe bursting is a method of sewer line repair that involves breaking and expanding your existing sewer pipe. This method requires digging two access holes, with one hole on each side of the sewer line. After the holes have been dug, the new sewer pipe is then pulled through the old, damaged sewer pipe. The old sewer pipe will be fractured or burst and will then be replaced with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes.

The benefits of HDPE pipes include corrosion resistance, leak resistance, scale and biological build-up resistance, freeze resistance, and more.

This method does not require any additional chemicals or contaminants to be performed, which makes it a sustainable sewer line repair method.

Pipe bursting is accomplished using an expander head which is pulled through your old sewer pipe. This head is small enough to fit through your existing pipe and it works to fracture the existing pipe as the plumber pulls it through. The head is then connected to the new pipe, which it drags and places behind it.

In order to apply power to the device, a pulling machine must be used. This is often pulled from a hydraulic power pack.

Pipe Relining:

Pipe relining, otherwise known as cured-in-place pipelining (CIPP), is a method of sewer line repair that allows your local plumber to replace your old pipelines without having to dig up and replace any of your old piping. In this method, the cured in-place pipe or pipe liner is installed in the old, damaged sewer pipe, so it does not have to be removed at all.

The benefits of cured-in-place-pipe lining include corrosion resistance, leak resistance, and root infestation resistance.

The CIPP involves inserting a felt lining into your pre-existing sewer pipe. There is a special type of resin within the liner that is then exposed to a curing element, which helps it to attach to the walls of the pipe. After it has cured fully, it acts as a new pipeline.

Epoxy Coating:

Epoxy coating or epoxy pipe resurfacing is an alternative to replacing old sewer lines and drain lines. Essentially your existing sewer line or drain line is resurfaced on the interior making your existing pipe like new again. The resin can seal damaged areas of sewer lines, including holes caused by corrosion, cracks in the line as well as smooth out the interior of the pipe.

Epoxy pipe coating is a safe and cost-effective way to fix your damaged sewer lines, especially in the case of cast iron drain lines, considering that cast iron drain lines are under the foundation of your home and are very expensive to replace. If you don’t want to have to tear up your home and flooring, epoxy coating can be the ultimate solution to your sewer line issues. The epoxy resin is non-toxic and is cured into place using hot air. Resurfacing your sewer pipe instead of replacing the pipe entirely can save you a ton of money. The epoxy coating method is designed to last up to 50 years, making it well worth the investment long-term.

With these high-quality methods, you won’t have to worry about sewer issues continually arising in your home or business. These are designed to be repairs that last for years to come. Our team at Robins Plumbing can help you determine which method of sewer line repair is best for your home or business.

Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

There are many benefits of trenchless sewer line repair, as opposed to other types of sewer line repair. Some of these benefits include:

Saves Money

Because your local plumber does not have to dig an entire trench during trenchless sewer line repair, you’ll pay much less in labor costs than you would in traditional sewer line repairs. Your yard will also be spared, meaning that you won’t have to pay someone to repair your landscaping after the sewer line replacement is complete.

Environmentally Friendly

Trenchless sewer repair is much more sustainable and environmentally friendly than traditional sewer line repair methods for a number of reasons. First, it uses fewer resources in general, as there is no need for heavy machinery or the use of fossil fuels. It also avoids negatively impacting the natural ecosystem of your yard, as it requires no digging or displacement of your current landscaping.

Higher Quality

Trenchless sewer repair offers higher quality materials and results than traditional sewer line repair methods. The HDPE pipes and other materials used are designed to be durable, rust-resistant, and they’re engineered using industry-leading technology, meaning you won’t have to worry about recurring pipe problems.

Overall, trenchless sewer repair is less expensive, less time-consuming, and is kinder to your yard than traditional methods of sewer line repair.
