severely damaged sewer pipe

If you experience a sewer leak or backup, you might think you need to replace your sewer line right away. It can be overwhelming since it’s a major undertaking that requires a lot of time and money. Fortunately, that’s not always the case. Zippity Split Plumbing will help you determine the source of the problem and see if sewer repair in Mesa, AZ, may suffice.

Nonetheless, here are the essential factors to consider when replacing your sewer line:

Signs You Need a Sewer Line Replacement

While your sewer line is out of sight, you can look for warning signs that indicate the need for sewer line replacement. These signs include:

  • Persistent clogs or backups
  • Random wet patches on your lawn
  • Nasty sewage odors
  • Gurgling drains
  • Foundation damage

If you spot these red flags early enough, there’s a good chance that sewer pipe line repair may still be an option. Otherwise, it’s better to replace the pipes altogether if they are on their last legs.

Results of Your Sewer Inspection

Have a professional from Zippity Split Plumbing inspect your sewer lines. Our team uses a high-definition camera to get a clear picture of what’s inside your pipes, allowing us to detect underlying issues and their extent. It also lets us assess the condition of your pipes, so we can determine whether you need to repair or replace sewer line.

Sewer Line Replacement Methods

If a complete replacement is the only option, it pays to understand the different methods so you can set your expectations and make informed decisions. At Zippity Split Plumbing, we offer two options—traditional excavation and trenchless pipe bursting.

Traditional excavation refers to digging the ground to expose and replace your damaged sewer line. We recommend this method if your pipes are severely damaged, your yard has poor soil conditions, and your utility lines are too close to the sewer system.

Meanwhile, pipe bursting refers to breaking your old pipes while simultaneously laying in new pipes in place. It doesn’t require extensive digging, leaving your yard and landscaping intact.
