Over the years, wastewater systems have used wood pipes made from hollowed-out logs, tarpaper, plastic PVC piping, and other options – all with their own sets of advantages and disadvantages. Today, CIPP has become one of the most popular options for rehabilitating and repairing wastewater systems. Below, we will go over what exactly CIPP is, why it works so well, and why you may want to consider using it in your construction or repair work. If fixing water leaks with little to no excavation sound great to you, then read on!

We get it: Once the water goes down the drain, you don’t give it another thought. And most of the time, you don’t need to.
When problems do occur with drains and sewer lines, though, you’ll want to address them as soon as possible. Otherwise, repair costs and the chances of health-related hazards can significantly increase.
Based on our experience, these are the most common signs your drain and sewer system needs prompt, professional attention.

Few plumbing problems are more serious than a leak in your sewer line, which can create huge issues for your home. In and of themselves, there’s nothing about them that’s different from an indoor piping leak. Sewer lines, however, are located underground, which makes reaching them a terrible chore. And because they remove wastewater from your entire home, a problem with them is going to affect almost every aspect of your life.
The good news is that piping services can repair sewer leaks with a lot less time and effort than it used to take. Not only does that mean completing the task in a fraction of the time and cost that it once did, but it can fix the problem just as well, if not better than ever. Here’s a little look at how modern technology has revolutionized piping services.

Problems with your outdoor pipes can be a tough proposition for a number of reasons. They’re buried underground in most cases, and getting to them to repair a leak can take a long time. Or at least it used to. In the past, you needed to rent construction equipment and hire extra workers to unearth the pipe, repair the leak and bury it again. (It can be difficult in the best of times, and our frequently rainy weather doesn’t make the process any easier.)

Repairing an underground pipe on your property, such as a sewer line or the main water line, used to be expensive and time-consuming. The problems themselves rarely differed from those of indoor pipes: usually, some manner of leak or clog disrupting the flow of liquid. But because the lines were buried underground, it took an inordinate amount of time to reach them. It meant expensive digging equipment and long man hours. It usually meant hiring extra workers too. All to simply uncover the pipe, fix the problem, and cover it again.

In the past, you’ve heard us discuss CIPP, or cured in place pipe, as a sure-fire method of sewer leak repairs. It’s an effective means of covering underground pipe repair without having to dig up the pipe. UV light, or ultra-violet light, can actually aid in that process considerably.

In and of itself, the sewer line for your home is no different than any other pipe. It may be a little larger and sturdier, but the principles are still the same: it still needs to carry wastewater out of your home, the same way that pipe under the sink does. The difficulty with sewer lines and other outdoor pipelines is that they’re most often buried beneath the ground.
This can be a big benefit because it protects them from damage quite well, but it also creates big problems when trouble does arise. The good news is that trained pipe technicians can usually repair problems such as leaks and clogs without having to dig. Trenchless technology has revolutionized pipe repair and allows us to repair leaks at a fraction of the time and cost.

Sewer line leaks tend to be more common than sewer line clogs, owing to the larger size of the sewer line, which makes it easier for waste to travel smoothly down the pipe. But clogs still occur, just as they would in any other pipe, and when they do, you can’t just get rid of it by applying a plunger. The good news is that you have options. Sewer repair services have tools and techniques to solve sewer line clog problems, all without having to dig or open up the pipe. Here’s a closer look at the problem and the solutions that professional pipe technicians bring to bear.

In many ways, a sewer line to your home is no different than any another length of pipe. In this case, it takes wastewater from the drain lines of your home into the local municipal sewer system. It’s usually larger than other pipes on your property and buried underground, but beyond that, it’s essentially another length of pipe. It still develops leaks, clogs, and corrosion, and it still required a trained technician to repair.
But fixing a problem with your sewer line presents a number of challenges that you wouldn’t find with other lengths of pipe in your home. That’s why you should always contact a service that specializes in sewer repair instead of one that deals with indoor pipes exclusively. Sewer repair services offer specialized options that can address a number of specific problems. A brief list of some of the more important ones follow.

A breach of your sewer line is, in essence, no different than a pipe breach inside your home. The walls of the pipe become thin or are punctured by damage, and the water comes leaking out. Any professional technician worth their salt knows how to plug a leak in a pipe, and if the situation took place inside your home, it would be easy enough to pinpoint the spot and either patch the leak or install a new length of pipe.
With sewer lines, however, that becomes much more problematic. Your sewer line is buried beneath your property, which means that you can’t simply patch up the leak. In the past, repairing a sewer breach required expensive tools such as construction equipment, as well as extra hands to perform the work. Operations would likely take a long time and end with your yard in a terrible mess: requiring additional costs as you hire groundskeepers to repair the damage.
