  • Cracked, broken, offset or collapsed pipe that have been damaged due to deterioration, shifting soil, settling etc.
  • Bellied pipe:  A section of pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions creating a “low spot” that collects paper, grease and waste.
  • Leaking joints:  The joints between pipes have been unsealed allowing waste water to escape into the surrounding area  causing the soil to become contaminated.
  • Roots in the sewer line:  Tree or shrub roots have invaded or grown into the sewer line causing a blockage and damage.
  • Shoddy or off grade pipe:  Existing pipes are substandard and may have deteriorated, come loose or corroded.

Drain Solvers technicians and plumbers are fully trained in the use of state of the art technologies to solve all your plumbing and drain cleaning issues including sewer line repair and replacement.

Traditional Repair Method         

Sewer line repair is typically performed using a backhoe to excavate down to the damaged portion of the line. The pipe is replaced with new pipe and back filled.

Horizontal Boring

Directional drilling and horizontal boring are a newer trenchless method of underground pipe installation.  This method completely bypasses the old damaged line and runs a new, up to code one.


Pipe Bursting

Small access holes are made where the pipe to be replaced starts and ends. Our hydraulic machine pulls a full size replacement pipe through the old pipe leaving a highly resistant leak proof pipe in its place.

Pipe Lining

Relining is the process of repairing sewer pipes by creating a “pipe within a pipe”.  Epoxy material is used to mold the inside of the existing pipe to create a smooth new inner wall.

What are some signs that your line needs to be repaired or replaced?

When faced with a sewer line issue there are some ways to tell that you are in need of our professional repair or replacement services. First, your drains may begin to clear slower than normal or in some cases may not empty out at all. If several drains in your home or commercial property are clogged at one time, the problem is getting worse and it won’t be long until you faced with a destructive sewage backup. You may also detect a foul odor in or around your property or perhaps see some water that has accumulated around the line itself. Sewer line issues are not something you want to wait on, so it is important to get in touch with the certified plumbers at Drain Solvers right away.

How can you prevent problems in the future?

  • Be aware of where you sewer lines are located so you can plant trees far enough away. It will also help you to avoid complications during major excavation projects.
  • Be very conscious of what you put down your drains, one wrong item can leave you with a laundry list of problems.
  • Implement the use of drain screens in your sinks, showers, and tubs so harmful items do not slip into your system.
