Methods Used in Sewer Repair

Friday, May 9th, 2014

It’s a phrase no one wants to hear: sewer repair. When sewer lines break, fixing them can be a considerable hassle, but neither can you let your home just go on without a functioning sewer line to get rid of the dirty water from your plumbing system. In the old days, you usually had to excavate the entire pipe, a process that could take many days and involve a number of workers. But here in Catalina, sewer repair has benefited from the advent of trenchless technology that allows the line to be replaced with just a few small holes dug in your yard. The methods used in sewer repair have come a long way. Here’s a quick break down of how it works.

The exact method usually depends on whether the entire pump needs replacing or whether you just need to seal a few cracks and leaks. In either case, the technician drills holes at either end of the affected length of pipe, then enacts one of two possible repairs.

  • Pipe bursting. This method is used when you need to replace the entire pipe a pump pushes an expanding metal head through the existing pipe, which shatters it and leaves the space clear. A new pipe is pulled through behind the metal head and fitted into place.
  • Pipe lining. This is a less destructive process than pipe bursting, usually used when the damage is comparatively minor. The plumbing takes an expanding flexible pipe and runs it through the damaged pipe, then inflates it so that it can fill the existing space in your pipe.

Both of these methods con be conducted in a fraction of the time it took older methods and without tearing up your yard to boot.
