Trenchless Sewer Line Repair in Lakewood: What Is It?

If you have ever seen a traditional sewer repair happening in a neighbor’s yard, you’ve probably thanked your lucky stars it wasn’t happening at your house. The old repair method requires digging a long trench to expose the entire sewer pipe and must be done with heavy equipment.

When pipes are located underneath utility lines or pavement, those structures may also have to be dug up and repaired. What a nightmare.

By fitting a new pipe through the old line instead of digging up and replacing it, trenchless sewer line repair solves the problem with minimal mess. With trenchless technology, our Sewer Lines Only team can make needed repairs without tearing up your landscaping or bringing big machinery into the yard.

Sewer Lines Only in Lakewood specializes in trenchless sewer repair. Our technicians stay updated on the most current methods to repair your system quickly, effectively, and on budget.

Got us handled quickly and with a fair price when we moved into a new house that had a repair need. Then they were trustworthy with the repair of the lawn/sprinklers in the spring when it was finally warm enough to sod over the patch. The patch of sod took quickly too. Not only this but the company is incredibly thoughtful and got ear of us having a baby girl around the time the sod was replaced and sent us a pack of diapers! Thoughtful, thorough and trustworthy. The “three t’s” you can expect from Sewer Lines Only.

Thanks team!

How Does Trenchless Sewer Line Repair Work?

Unlike traditional methods that require digging along the entire length of the sewer line, trenchless repair involves only two small pits — one for entry and one for the exit. They are the only holes made during the repair.

The process of fitting a new pipe into the existing line is called “pipe bursting.” With the help of a hydraulic power generator, we insert the replacement pipe into the original line and pull it through.

As the new pipe travels through the old one, it breaks up the existing line into small fragments or bursts its way through. Most lines are replaced in one day, but the process can take longer depending on the depth and length of the pipe and the extent of the repairs.

Is Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Right for My Lakewood Home?

Almost every home can benefit from trenchless sewer line replacement technology, but some circumstances are better suited for trenchless services than others.
Situations where trenchless repair may be impractical include:

  • Sewage systems that have a lot of turns and bends
  • Existing pipes that have collapsed or degraded
  • Existing sewer pipes that have a low spot (the new line will have the same problem)
  • Locations where these repair methods are not approved by the city of Lakewood

Trenchless technology is especially helpful when sewer pipes are located under hardscaping or significant amounts of mature landscaping.

Do You Need Trenchless Sewer Line Repair?

The signs you need sewer line repair aren’t always obvious. Some of the warning signs include:

  • Slow drains
  • Sewer odor in your yard or home
  • Soggy spots in your backyard
  • Raised areas in your back yard where water is building up
  • Lush patches of grass

Call Sewer Lines Only as soon as possible if you notice any of these signs. Dealing with a broken or damaged sewer line is no homeowner’s idea of fun, but we can fix the problem as quickly and discreetly as possible with trenchless sewer line repair.

Which Sewer Problems can Trenchless Repair Help With?

Pipe bursting can help solve almost any repair issue, including:

  • Damage caused by roots
  • Corrosion or rust-related damage
  • Warped or misaligned pipes
  • Cracks caused by freezing and thawing
  • Pipe blockage
  • Sewer backup

The minimal digging involved with trenchless sewer line replacement makes it a practical solution for most repairs regardless of the cause.

How Does the Cost of Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Compare to Traditional Methods?

Trenchless repairs save money and time in several ways. First, less time is spent excavating, and projects are typically completed in one day. Faster repair means lower labor costs.

Second, trenchless methods cause little or no damage to your property. Costs to repair landscaping, utility structures, sidewalks, or damage to the street are minimal.

Trenchless sewer repair in Lakewood also saves you money in the long run. The pipes used are made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which is known for durability. Installing HDPE pipes reduces your chance of needing more repairs in the future.

Tap Repairs in Lakewood

Tap repairs may be needed if there is a problem at the connection where your home’s sewer line meets the city mainline or “tap.” If you’re experiencing disruptions in your sewer service, damage at the tap may be the problem.

Signs You Need Sewer Line Tap Repair Services

The team at Sewer Lines Only can quickly diagnose problems with your sewer line. If you observe any of the following problems, call our office for a diagnostic appointment:

  • Frequent backups, constant clogs
  • Soggy spots in the lawn that don’t go away
  • A raised section of the lawn where sewer water is trapped
  • Sewage odor, especially odors coming from the mainline
  • Slow drains

Any of these warning signs could indicate a crack, break, clog, or other types of damage that are affecting the sewer tap. Call Sewer Lines Only today for a free no-obligation estimate.

Interior or Basement Sewer Line Repair

Lakewood, CO, is fortunate to have many beautiful, historic homes. But older homes come with a specific set of problems. Before 1970, homes were built using cast iron pipes for sewage lines. The iron pipes were thought to be practically indestructible, but it turns out they could not stand the test of time.

The process of basement sewer line replacement involves several steps, including the following:

  • Jackhammering the concrete from the basement floor
  • Removing soil to expose old pipes
  • Removing concrete and dirt debris
  • Removing the cast iron pipe
  • Replacing the cast iron pipe with new PVC pipe
  • Properly bedding the area with crushed granite
  • Replacing soil and compacting the area
  • Pouring new concrete
  • Replacing flooring

During the process, your Sewer Lines Only team will take all necessary precautions to protect your home and property, and we will make sure the new line is working properly before the job is done.

If your home was built before 1970 and the interior sewer lines have not been replaced, don’t wait for the worst to happen. Call us today for a new sewer line installation.

Spot Repairs with Clean-Out Installation

When only a small section of the sewer line needs repair, it’s referred to as spot repair. Spot repairs are inexpensive solutions to several minor damage and clogging problems. Most spot repairs can be finished in one appointment.

Clean-Out Installation: What is It?

A drain clean-out may be needed if the sewer line has a significant clog. A “double sweep” that includes servicing both the exterior and interior cleanout of your system is the best way to take care of a major clog.

However, not every home has an outdoor clean-out. When you call Sewer Lines Only to remove a clog, we can also install new double sweep clean-outs to make maintenance easier in the future.
