sewer line repair and replacement

So you live in a lovely older home and you know that the sewer line is going to need to be replaced eventually. You keep putting off the replacement until it is an emergency at which point you have no time to research your options but the options are out there. At Malcolm Rooter we can do trenchless sewer line replacement. A majority of people would prefer paying a bit more for trenchless sewer line replacement rather than having to dig up their existing landscaping to replace the sewer.

One of the biggest culprits for sewer line damage is tree roots. They are attracted to the sewer line because of the water. Regular water jetting can help clear away the roots temporarily increasing the life of your sewer line but the key here is temporary. With sewer line replacement you get a long term solution to the problem and now with trenchless replacement you can do it with minimal inconvenience.

There are two methods of trenchless water line replacement pipe lining and pipe bursting. Pipe lining creates a resin pipe with in your existing pipe slightly decreasing the diameter but not affecting your homes drain ability. Pipe bursting involves pushing a new pipe through your damaged old pipe thus replacing it. This cannot always be done but allows for a new sewer line that is not smaller in diameter.

While these methods can seem initially more expensive they can be more cost effective then they seem. When you account for the cost of re-landscaping or the expense of repairing damage to the street if you need to trench at the main sewer connection the cost of trenched sewer line repair can really add up. However for some people trenched sewer line replacement is still the way to go. Either way Malcolm Rooter is here to help with all your sewer line repair and replacement needs.
