What are the main signs you need sewer pipe replacement in Mississauga?
Ignoring the need for immediate sewer line repair may result in costly and hazardous consequences. If there is a blockage, sewage, including human waste, might back up into your home’s drainage system. To address the issue right away, you need to be aware of the warning signs your sewer pipes need to be replaced:
Slow draining water
Pay attention if the water takes a while to drain – this could mean a blockage in the sewage system. It may first manifest in taking a few seconds longer for the water to completely go down the drain. Still, in time this short period will only grow up. In this case, household snakes, plumbers or cleaners won’t become the right solution. Instead, based on initial diagnostics, our plumber will perform drain and sewer replacement using professional tools at a cheap and affordable cost.
In the literal sense, the “loudest” symptom is constant gurgling. When water is unable to flow freely through a pipe because of a blockage inside, air bubbles are released, resulting in such noises. Perhaps a simple cleaning will be enough, but due to a more serious problem like damaged sections, you may need a complete replacement, as our specialist will inform you after digging into the system.
Higher water bills
Another indicator of the need for sewer/drain replacement may be a larger amount of water flowing through the system. The water meter will run continuously if there is a leak in the sewage line. However, it would be quite challenging to identify the leak several feet down the pipe on your own – hire our professionals with CCTV cameras and modern equipment to quickly replace your drains.
What are the methods for sewer line replacement?
Generally, our team applies 2 types of trenchless sewer replacement (also called repairs): pipe lining and pipe bursting. The first one is the process of placing an inflating tube into a pipe system to restore small leaks or cracks. Inflating the tube in this way causes it to push against the current line. Then, the epoxy, which covers the tube, dries and hardens to seal the leak, allowing us to remove the inflatable tube. In turn, pipe bursting is performed when the sewage line is too damaged to be restored by other means. Our plumbers will use a cone-shaped bit to break your existing pipe before installing a new one in its place. This method does not involve actual digging but is more costly and time-consuming. We provide sewer replacement services for residential and commercial clients in Mississauga
Why shouldn’t you perform a sewer replacement on your own?
The main reason to reject the idea of main sewer line replacement yourself is the potential safety hazards. Because giardia, E. coli, methane gas, etc., exist inside the pipe, you can be easily exposed to the toxic effects of gas or microorganisms. This reason is closely related to the lack of experience and equipment required. In addition to having innovative tools, the price for which is much higher than a plumber’s call, the homeowner must have extensive knowledge about the piping, the location of underground utility lines and soil conditions.
In addition, when performing cracked, sewer pipe replacement in basement on your own, you are not guaranteed that your fix will be lasting. Finally, incorrectly “repairing” a “minor” problem, such as a leak in the front yard, might cause additional damage and lead to a much more serious issue, such as a sewage backup into your home or a spill onto your neighbour’s yard.
