Solve your sewer line problem the right way—call (317) 520-3569 to request inspection and sewer replacement in Indianapolis.
Are your drains often clogged? Is wastewater flowing out of your toilet after you’ve flushed? Contact your plumber for an immediate sewer line inspection. Pristine Plumbing will check your sewer lateral for leaks, decay, or blockages and go over your options. If sewer line replacement is required for your Indianapolis home, we will discuss the replacement process with you and help you make an informed decision.
Sewer Line Replacement vs. Repair
If a problem is found in your sewer line, you may be wondering if a full replacement is required, or if just a section of the line can be repaired. This will depend on the extent of damage. If you have a newer sewer line and the problem is isolated to a certain part, it’s likely we can simply replace that part of the sewer line.
However, if cracks or decay are present in one area, chances are the rest of your sewer line is affected as well. This is particularly the case in older properties with cast iron, clay, or Orangeburg pipes. We can help you replace old materials with easy-to-install plastic pipes (PVC or ABS).
Checking For Sewer Problems
Our experts will perform a thorough sewer camera inspection to get a better look inside your sewer line. Using a high-definition camera, we can easily identify any clogs or blockages. We can also look out for other problems such as cracks, sagging, or tree root intrusion.
Our Sewer Camera Inspection Process
A camera attached to a flexible cable is inserted into the sewer pipe. Our technicians will maneuver this cable through the pipe until we have a clear picture of what’s happening inside.
Sewer camera inspections are noninvasive and allow us to properly diagnose your sewer line issue without any extensive excavation.
Once we know what’s causing problems with your sewer line, we will be able to recommend the best solution. If a significant amount of damage is present, it might be necessary to replace your entire sewer line.
Trenchless or Traditional Sewer Replacement?
We understand that you’ve worked hard on your home and have spent a significant amount of time and effort on the landscaping as well as hardscaping. Sewer line replacement can disrupt the beautiful touches you’ve incorporated into your front yard.
This is why we offer our customers an alternative to traditional excavation methods: trenchless sewer replacement, which can help you preserve the majority of your yard. The trenchless approach only involves digging one or two access points, and the rest of the work is completed by pipe bursting.
Trenchless sewer replacement is considered on a case by case basis. If your sewer lateral features joints or has suffered collapse, we may need to consider the traditional method—which will require digging trenches along the length of your sewer line. Although traditional excavation is more intrusive, it is typically less costly compared to trenchless methods.
Our experts will go over the extent of damage and help you determine whether traditional or trenchless sewer replacement is best for your particular situation.
