One of the most important jobs we do for our many customers is sewer repair in Seattle, WA. We work with sewer lines of all sizes and serve many different types of buildings and facilities: single family homes, industrial and commercial buildings, and military and municipal facilities.
Repairing a damaged sewer line isn’t something we do by using one method. When we take on a job, we first have to discover the exact issue with the sewer line and determine the best way to resolve it—fast and effectively. We don’t want our customers to end up with poor work that will fail in only a few months. We offer permanent solutions.

In our last post, we talked about how our experts can use cured in place piping (CPP) to repair sewer lines when tree roots have damaged them. We want to take an opportunity to talk in more depth about the trouble with tree roots vs. sewer lines because this is one of the most common dangers for buried pipes. It doesn’t matter if the sewer line serves a small home or a massive facility covering a few acres of land—if there are trees in proximity to where the sewer line is buried, a potential danger exists. Tree root infiltration can cause minor troubles with slow drains, and if left alone can eventually shatter the integrity of the sewer line and require a complete replacement.

We are experienced with working with piping in all sectors, from residential homes to large industrial facilities. But all sewer line pipes are vulnerable to similar problems, no matter the size of the facility. Corrosion, blockages, and breakage are all frequent. One of the most common troubles we’re called to deal with is tree root infiltration. In fact, almost 50% of all sewer blockages and backups are because of tree roots growing into the line.

The term “burst pipe” is an intimidating one. Homeowners, building managers, and anyone else in charge of a facility will immediately think of a water pipe splitting open from pressure (often due to a frozen pipe) and creating a serious catastrophe.
But there’s a positive type of pipe bursting—it’s the type we use for sewer repair in Lacey, WA. It’s one of the major trenchless repair techniques we use to help take care of the most serious pipeline damage and for replacement of older sewer lines.

The word rehabilitation has a specific meaning for most people—and it doesn’t have any connection to plumbing pipes, sewer lines, or water mains. But in the world of piping, whether residential, civic, industrial, or military, rehabilitation is one of the big words describing what professionals do.
When it comes to rehabilitating a pipe, it means the repair, renewal, or replacement of underground piping, such as water mains and sewer lines. If a pipe is damaged, suffering from corrosion due to age, has root infiltration, or needs any type of upgrade, the pipe must have professional rehabilitation services.

One of the then many jobs we handle at Insta-Pipe is hydro-jetting to clean sewer lines. No homeowner, business owner, or facility manager wants to think much about the sewer line (it’s hard to blame them), but they know that if anything goes wrong with the sewer line, the consequences are huge. A home becomes unlivable, a business has to be shuttered due to code violations, etc. The most common sewer trouble is clogging, which proper sewer cleaning can both fix and prevent.
Hydro-jetting is one of several methods to fix clogs and clean sewer lines. The most prominent of the other methods is using drain augers, a.k.a. drain snakes or rooters, that send rotating wires and drill heads down into the pipes. We recommend hydro-jetting for sewer line unclogging and cleaning; we’ve used this method for years and stay up to date with the latest advances, and we’ve seen for ourselves why they’re so beneficial. Below are some of the reasons we recommend hydro-jetting.

No question about it, no need to debate—the sewer line is an essential part of the plumbing for any building, no matter if it’s a single-family home or an immense industrial facility. The sewer line is what connects the wastewater system of the building to the municipal sewer line. If the sewer line is damaged or clogged, it will rapidly lead to serious trouble. In the case of commercial and industrial buildings, it can lead to shuttering operations due to health code violations.
When you need sewer line repairs, there are a number of different options for how the contractor approaches the work. Below are the different types of sewer repairs.
