Older pipes are more likely to break due to corrosion and wear and tear.
Tree roots can grow into sewer pipes and cause cracks or breaks.
Chemicals in the soil and water can corrode the pipes over time, causing them to break.
High water pressure can put stress on the pipes and cause them to break.
Heavy loads, such as from vehicles or construction, can put stress on the pipes and cause them to break.
Sediment build-up can restrict the flow of water and put stress on the pipes, causing them to break.
Mechanical damage, such as from digging or excavation, can cause the pipes to break.
If the pipes are not installed properly, they may be more likely to break due to stress or misalignment.
If the pipes are not properly maintained, they may be more likely to break due to corrosion, cracks, or blockages.
How We Repair Damaged Sewer Pipes
There are two main ways to fix broken sewer pipes:
- Traditional repair: This involves digging up the pipe and replacing the damaged section. This is the most invasive method, but it can be the most effective in some cases.
- Trenchless repair: This involves using a variety of methods to repair the pipe without digging up the ground. These methods include pipe lining, pipe bursting, and cured-in-place pipe (CIPP). Trenchless repairs are less invasive and disruptive than traditional repairs, but they may not be as effective in all cases.
The specific process for fixing a broken sewer pipe will vary depending on the location and severity of the damage. However, the general steps involved are as follows:
- Locate the damaged section of pipe. This can be done by using a video camera or by listening for leaks.
- Excavate the area around the damaged pipe. This may only be necessary for traditional repairs.
- Remove the damaged section of pipe.
- Install the new section of pipe.
- Backfill the excavation area.
- Inspect the repaired pipe to make sure it is working properly.
The cost of fixing a broken sewer pipe will vary depending on the method used, the location of the damage, and the length of the pipe that needs to be replaced. Traditional repairs are typically more expensive than trenchless repairs.
If you suspect that you have a broken sewer pipe, it is important to have it inspected by a plumber as soon as possible. A broken sewer pipe can cause a number of problems, including flooding, sewage backups, and health hazards.
Here are some of the most common trenchless sewer repair methods:
- Pipe lining: This method involves inserting a new liner into the damaged pipe. The liner is then inflated and cured in place, creating a new pipe within the old one.
- Pipe bursting: This method involves using a high-pressure water jet to break the old pipe and insert a new one.
- Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP): This method involves lining the damaged pipe with a resin that hardens in place.
The best method for your situation will depend on the location and severity of the damage, as well as your budget. A plumber can help you assess your options and choose the best method for your needs.
