Damaged sewer pipe leaking sewage into the soil is a plumbing emergency. This is due to sewer effluent containing deadly bacteria and viruses. When a sewer pipe leak occurs, it can lead to the contamination of ground water, ponds, creeks and rivers, lakes and wells, and posing a health threat to the public. Traditional sewer pipe repair involves destructive trenching of the lawn, with a trench of sufficient length and depth to access the broken sewer line. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing offers an alternative means of repair to your sewer plumbing in Fort Worth, with trenchless pipe repair, preserving your lawn and landscaping.
Trenchless pipe repair is the preferred solution when sewer pipes fail, including:
- Underground pipe beneath structures, driveways, hardscaping, landscaping and others
- Damaged, bellied, misaligned or leaking pipes
- The need for a larger capacity sewer pipe
Diagnosing Sewer Pipe Issues
Diagnosing sewer pipe problems utilizes a video pipe inspection with a waterproof, high-resolution video camera attached to a flexible fiber optic cable and inserted into the pipe. The clear image is transmitted to a monitor in real time, eliminating the timely process of digging to locate an elusive sewer leak.
This method of assessing drain and sewer pipe problems identifies the exact depth and location, and is ideal with a trenchless pipe repair to be provided. In addition, the sewer camera will reveal the nature of the problem, and whether a section requires repair or the entire sewer line needs to be replaced. A video pipe inspection can identify problems in your sewer plumbing in Fort Worth, such as root intrusion or other clogs, separated lines, offset pipe joints, bellied pipe, or a broken pipe.
The advantages of the trenchless method include providing repair typically in less than a day. Furthermore, the trenchless pipe repair process meets or exceeds the industry standards. Repair is a permanent, first quality solution for replacement pipe.

A Green, Lush Lawn
The presence of unusually lush green grass near the sewer pipe may be a sign of a leaking sewer pipe, and requires prompt repair to protect your community, and public waterways from water borne disease.
Standing water on the lawn may indicate a sewer pipe leak. Furthermore, a sewer odor may or may not be present in a sewer leak as it pools on top of the soil. Contact a Benjamin Franklin plumber for repair of sewer plumbing in Fort Worth.
Sewer Pipe Replacement
Our licensed plumbers use the trenchless method to replace the sewer pipe with the pipe bursting method. The pipe bursting process uses a bursting head to fragment the existing pipe, pushing the fragments out of the way and into the surrounding soil, while pulling new pipe into place. The trenchless process can in many cases, replace worn, or damaged sewer pipe in hours, versus days with excavation.
