Sewer Line Repair

The Process

Sewer line problems can cause headaches for homeowners, leading to costly repairs and even damaging floods. It's essential to identify and address these issues promptly to prevent more significant and costly problems down the line.

At King Rooter & Plumbing, we have been providing expert Denver sewer repair and replacement services for over 20 years. Our proven process ensures that we address sewer line problems quickly and effectively, minimizing disruption to your plumbing system and your home.

Here's how we approach sewer line repairs and replacements:

1. Diagnosis and evaluation: We use state-of-the-art sewer camera equipment to conduct a thorough video inspection of your side sewer, identifying any problem areas and potential causes of clogs or other issues.
2. Repair options: Once we've identified the problem, we discuss your repair options with you. Depending on the severity of the issue, we may recommend spot repairs or replacement of the affected sections or the entire sewer line.

3. Spot repairs: If the pipe's structure is sound, we can often fix the issue with a small spot repair, minimizing disruption to your yard and landscaping.
4. Sewer line replacement: If parts of the pipe are damaged beyond repair, we will replace the affected sections or the entire sewer line. We ensure that the ground is prepared and stabilized, as required by city code, and can use either traditional digging methods or the "no dig" trenchless "pipe bursting" method, depending on the situation.

Don't let sewer line problems turn into a nightmare. Contact us today to schedule a sewer video inspection and ensure that your plumbing system is working properly.

Sewer Line Replacement Options

When it comes to sewer line replacement, homeowners have two options: sewer excavation and trenchless sewer line replacement. The method recommended will depend on the specific scenario presented by your sewer pipe replacement needs. Both techniques can provide excellent results.

Sewer Excavation

Sewer excavation involves digging up the old sewer line and replacing it with a new one. This method is generally more affordable than trenchless sewer line replacement, but it can be more disruptive to your yard and landscaping. Here are some key things to consider with sewer excavation:

  • The excavation process involves digging a trench along the path of the existing sewer line
  • The depth of the trench will depend on the depth of the existing sewer line
    Once the trench is dug, the old sewer line is removed, and a new one is installed in its place
  • The trench is then filled in, and landscaping and other disruptions are repaired

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

Trenchless sewer line replacement is a less invasive approach that uses advanced technology to replace the sewer line without extensive digging. While this method can be more expensive, it can also be more convenient and less disruptive to your property. Here's what you need to know about trenchless sewer line replacement:

  • Trenchless methods use specialized equipment to create a new sewer line within the old one, which is left in place
  • There are two primary types of trenchless sewer line replacement: pipe bursting and pipe lining
  • Pipe bursting involves using a bursting head to break apart the old sewer line while pulling a new one into place
  • Pipe lining involves inserting a flexible liner into the existing sewer line and inflating it to create a new, seamless pipe within the old one
  • Trenchless methods typically require fewer permits and less excavation, which can make them more cost-effective in some cases

Factors Affecting the Cost of Sewer Line Replacement

The cost of sewer line replacement can vary depending on several factors, including:

  • The method used (excavation or trenchless)
  • The depth and length of the sewer line
  • Permit costs
  • Landscaping obstructions
  • Your budget

We understand that cost is an important consideration for homeowners, and we will work with you to find the most cost-effective solution that meets your needs and budget.

A sewer line is a pipe that carries wastewater from your home to a municipal sewage treatment plant or septic system. It's an essential component of your plumbing system that helps ensure that your home stays clean and healthy.

Sewer line problems can be caused by a variety of factors, including tree roots growing into the pipe, debris buildup, aging pipes, ground movement, and more. These issues can lead to clogs, leaks, and other plumbing problems that can be costly to fix.

Signs of a sewer line problem can include slow drains, gurgling sounds coming from your plumbing, foul odors, sewage backups, and soggy or sunken spots in your yard. If you're experiencing any of these issues, it's important to contact a professional plumber to diagnose and address the problem.

If you suspect a sewer line problem, it's important to act quickly to prevent further damage and expense. Contact a professional plumber who can conduct a thorough inspection of your sewer line and recommend the best course of action.

There are several steps you can take to help prevent sewer line problems, including:

  • Avoid flushing non-biodegradable items down the toilet.
  • Don't pour grease or oil down the drain.
  • Have your sewer line inspected regularly by a professional plumber.
  • Plant trees and shrubs away from your sewer line to prevent root intrusion.
  • Use drain screens to catch hair and debris before it enters your plumbing system.

The decision to repair or replace your sewer line will depend on several factors, including the extent of the damage, the age of your sewer line, and your budget. In some cases, spot repairs may be sufficient to fix the problem. In other cases, a full replacement may be necessary. A professional plumber can help you determine the best course of action for your specific situation.

The length of time it takes to replace a sewer line will depend on several factors, including the method used (excavation or trenchless), the length and depth of the sewer line, and any landscaping obstructions that need to be addressed. In general, sewer line replacement can take anywhere from a few days to a week or more.
