Sewer Repair or Replacement St. Louis

When your main drain backs up into your home it leaves you with a mess and a headache. Dealing with the damage of a backed up sewer is something you never want to experience, but if you do, you never want to experience it again. When this happens it leaves you with two options: You can either repair or replace your sewer pipe to fix the problem. 

Drain Back Up St Louis

When a drain technician is at your home, they will suggest a repair if your main drain is reasonably accessible, properly sized for your home, and has a reasonable life expectancy left.  For example, if you have tree roots blocking your pipe, you can choose a spot repair to remove the roots using a root killer. Unfortunately, this is only a temporary solution because the tree roots will grow back later, which will cause the blockage again.

If your main drain is bellied or collapsed, deformed or deteriorated, or beyond its pipe’s lifespan, then you will need to replace it.

There are two methods to replace your sewer line leading from your home to the street:

 Pipe Excavation
To replace your old sewer line, a technician will need to dig down to it and create a trench along the old line so it’s fully exposed. The technician will then rebuild the pipe’s foundation bed and install a new, heavy duty PVC pipe.

 Pipe Bursting
With pipe bursting, a technician can actually replace your sewer line without digging a trench. A strong, seamless, new pipe will be pulled mechanically through the old pipe which will literally burst the old pipe apart, allowing the new pipe to completely replace it.

The great thing with pipe bursting is that it can save your landscaping and won’t tear up your sidewalk or driveway. It’s also a great long term solution, which can save you thousands of dollars in future repair costs plus peace of mind that your basement will never flood with sewage again! The pipe carries a 50+ year guarantee.
