What is a Sewer Main?
A sewer main or line is the pipe system that leads sewage waste away from your home or business. This line can become cracked, clogged, or otherwise damage causing serious problems to your yard and plumbing system. Regularly maintain your sewage system to ensure you don’t leave yourself vulnerable to huge repair bills.
Preventative Sewer Maintenance
The first step to properly maintaining your sewer line is through preventative maintenance. Through regular cleanings, inspections and maintenance, your sewer can lead a long and happy life. Regular inspections can also provide advance warning of any upcoming major repairs needed to your system.
Don’t get slapped with an unexpected bill. Have your system inspected and maintained annually by a licensed professional. Trust the plumbers at Coastal Services LLC. Our plumbers are fully licensed, insured, and trained to inspect, maintain, and repair your sewer main.
How to Spot Sewer Line Damage
Several signs alert you that your sewer line may be damaged or in need of repairs ASAP. A cracked pipe is the most common reason your line may need to be replaced or repaired ASAP. Cracked pipes result from lack of maintenance, tree roots, frozen ground, or old age. No matter what the cause is, here are common signs that there may be a problem with your system:
- Gurgling noises in the pipes
- Slow draining in sinks, showers, or tubs
- Sewage backup into your home
- Foul smelling odors from your drains
If you notice one or more of these signs of damage, call the expert plumbers at Coastal Services LLC right away. Don’t delay. The longer you wait, the more severe the damage may become, and the more costly the repairs will be. We offer 24-Hour Emergency Services for when your plumbing just can’t wait.
Trenchless Pipe Repair
Over time, your sewer line may become damaged. Like all damaged things, the pipe will need to be repaired. Don’t worry though. A sewer line repair doesn’t always require digging up your yard.
Processes like trenchless pipe repair can allow a team to repair your pipe without digging giant trenches. Trenchless repair is more cost-effective too, so don’t worry about choosing between the cheaper but less appealing option. With trenchless pipe repair, you’d never know that the crew repaired or completely replaced a long pipe directly below your yard.
Relining the Pipes
Relining pipes is merely creating a new pipe within an old pipe as a quick and efficient way to address sewer line damage. The pipe re-lining process creates new “walls” inside of the old pipe for a brand-new pipe inside itself!
Pipe bursting is the process of forcibly breaking the old or broken pipes in your sewer system so new pipes can be implemented. This involves mechanically inserting a large conical metal head and dragging through the line to “burst” the pipes from the inside.
Today, pipe bursting takes only a few hours, compared to older methods that took days or even weeks to fix. Our professional plumbers at Coastal Services recommend this quick and cost-efficient manner of sewer line pipe removal and repair.
