Trenchless Pipe Repair | Plumbing Arlington
Problems with your home’s sewer pipe may give very little advanced warning. When sewer lines back up or start to leak, they are in need of repair or replacement. Furthermore, leaking sewer pipes pose a hazard with effluent containing bacteria and viruses. This can lead to dangerous contamination of the water table, wells and surface water such as ponds and lakes. Due to the hazards involved, repair of sewer pipes requires qualified, licensed professionals equipped with the proper tools for sewer repair of your home’s plumbing in Arlington. Trenchless pipe repair can provide a fast, effective solution without the need for excavation.
The following are some of the common signs of a sewer pipe problem:
Standing water over the drain field
Sunken areas over the drain field
Sewage odor inside or outdoors
Poorly flushing toilets that may gurgle, and drains that will not drain or drain slowly
Sewer backup can occur inside the home
While these signs can also be due to a clogged drain or a septic tank in need of pumping, they may be due to a problem with the sewer pipe. Routine drain cleaning prevents or reduces the incidence of slow or clogged drains, and can provide efficient sewer drainage, and early identification of developing problems.

This method provides the installation of new sewer pipe without damaging your lawn or landscaping.
Identifying Sewer Pipe Problems
Benjamin Franklin Plumbing uses video pipe inspection for inspection of the sewer pipe interior.

Video pipe inspections can identify tree root intrusion or other clogs, bellied pipes, separated pipes, offset pipe joints, a broken or collapsed pipe, requiring repair.
Sewer Pipe Problems
Sewer pipe repair can remedy common problems in many older sewer pipes. However, sewer pipe will eventually require replacement, and when deterioration due to age renders the pipe fragile, replacement may be necessary. Sewer pipe damage typically occurs gradually over time, as in damage due to the growth of tree roots through a cracked sewer pipe. Tree roots grow into and block sewer pipes, breaking the pipe as the roots grow within it. Generally, never plant trees within 25 ft. of sewer pipe or septic tanks to prevent root invasion.
