Sewer Line Replacement
We all like to think our households’ sewer lines will work forever, but time, tree roots, gunk and Mother Nature can spell trouble for this essential residential artery. If your sewer line breaks down, Atlas plumbing technicians are here to help.
Signs of Trouble
Fortunately, there are usually clear signs that your sewer line has problems: Sewage backups, sewer gas odor, slow drains, pooling water in your yard and unexpectedly lush greenery are the most common. But insect or rodent infestation, mold, or an indentation in your lawn or paved area can also point to trouble.
Repair or Replace?
Your Atlas technician will assess the problem, including a video examination of your line, to see if it is blocked or broken. If the pipe is broken, he will discuss your options with you, taking into account the age of your line, the pipe materials, and the landscape that sits over the pipe.
Trenchless v. Conventional Replacement
Conventional methods involve completely exposing the sewer line and then replacing the old system with a new one. Trenchless replacement is easier on your landscape, with only two access points. A new main line is hydraulically pulled through the old pipe, bursting it as it goes and pushing the shards into the surrounding soil.
Consider a Service Contract
Talk to your Atlas technician about our sewer line maintenance plans. Periodic inspection and cleaning can save you thousands of dollars down the line.
