What are the main signs that you need sewer pipe replacement in Halifax?
To avoid costly and potentially dangerous consequences, it is important to resolve any problems with the sewerage network promptly. If a sewer pipe is clogged, human waste and sewage can enter your home’s sewage system. To avoid this, it’s important to know the signs of sewer pipe problems and schedule sewer or drain replacement services when necessary.
Slow draining water
One of the most common signs of blockage is slow water draining. If the water takes longer than usual to drain, this may indicate a blockage. Using a plunger or snake may not be enough to fix the problem. Our professional plumbers use modern tools and equipment to diagnose and fix sewer problems at an affordable price.
Another sign of a sewer line problem is gurgling sounds. When air bubbles are released due to a blockage, it can cause a constant gurgling sound. While a simple cleaning may solve the issue, it’s important to have an expert inspect the system for any damage that may require complete drain replacement.
Higher water bills
Finally, an increased water bill could indicate a leak in the sewer line. If the water meter runs continuously, there’s likely a leak that needs to be addressed. CCTV cameras can be used to locate leaks that are deep underground.
Don’t ignore the signs of sewer line problems. Contact our experienced plumbers to diagnose and fix any issues promptly, safely, and at an affordable sewer and drain replacement cost.
What is the most efficient method for replacing sewer lines?
As a rule, our team applies 2 types of trenchless sewer replacement (also called repair):
To repair small leaks or cracks in pipe systems, an inflatable tube is placed inside the pipe and pressed against the pipe as it inflates. The tube is coated with epoxy resin, which hardens and seals the leak. The drain replacement cost when using this method will depend on the length of the line.
Sometimes, when other methods fail to repair a damaged sewage line, our plumbers may use a cone-shaped bit to break the existing pipe and replace it with a new one. This approach doesn’t require any digging, but it can be more expensive and take longer to complete.
Why shouldn’t you perform a sewer replacement on your own?
Homeowners shouldn’t do sewer pipe replacement on their own due to several safety risks. The pipes contain dangerous gases and microorganisms, such as giardia and methane, which can be harmful to human health. Moreover, proper knowledge and equipment are necessary, and innovative tools cost more than hiring a plumber. A homeowner should have a good knowledge of the pipework system, the location of underground utilities, and the condition of the ground. If repairs are done incorrectly, they may not last long and may lead to additional damage, which can cause more serious problems, such as a sewer break in your home.
