When you are faced with serious sewer problems, your first step should be to contact a professional Etobicoke plumber. He will be able to tell you exactly what the problem is, as well as the solutions. There are many reasons why your sewer system could need repairs that go beyond plunging and snaking.
- A severe build-up of grease or a foreign object that causes such an obstruction that waste cannot flow.
- A section of pipe that has sunk lower than the rest of the pipe, creating a “belly” where waste collects until the pipe is obstructed.
- Cracked, broken, and/or collapsed pipe due to age, freezing ground temperatures, etc.
- Leaking pipes that allow waste water to escape the pipe and leach into the ground.
- Complete obstruction by large tree roots.
If your sewer system has one or more of these problems, you may be pulling your hair out in frustration at the thought of digging up your lawn. No one wants to deal with that hassle – and the resulting mess!
The fact is that you have two options for major sewer repairs. The first is, of course, digging up your lawn and the area of pipe that needs replaced. A backhoe is used to dig up the trench, the pipe is repaired, and the backhoe is used again to fill in the trench. It falls on your shoulders to replace the sod to make your lawn look beautiful again.
The second option is known as trenchless repair. This method involves much less damage to your lawn. Access points at the two ends of the damaged area are created. Through these access points, new pipe is pulled through the existing, old pipe. As the new pipe is pulled through, it causes the old pipe to burst. The new pipe is attached to the rest of the sewer system, the access holes are filled back in, and you still have your beautiful lawn.
Your professional Etobicoke plumber will help you choose the best method for your particular sewer problem.
