Sewer pipe problems pose one of the most inconvenient of plumbing issues. In the past, repair of sewer pipe required trenching for repair or replacement. Thankfully, modern plumbing offers an alternative to trenching. Furthermore, for the average home it is an alternative that can be completed in a day or less. When you are faced with the repair or replacement of a sewer pipe, contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. Our licensed plumbers offer diagnosis with video pipe inspection, and trenchless sewer repair for fast, efficient repair of your home’s sewer plumbing in Fort Worth.
Signs of Sewer Pipe Issues
Problems with a sewer pipe tend to develop over time. In addition, developing issues may remain unknown until you either have a problem with drainage, or schedule periodic drain and sewer cleaning.
Common signs of issues in the sewer pipe include:
- Lush, green grass in the location of a sewer pipe
- The pooling of water on the lawn, which may or may not emit a sewer odor
- Sunken areas on the lawn
- Poorly flushing toilets, and poor drainage throughout the home
- Sewer back-up into low-lying areas of the home
- Gurgling toilets and drains
Identifying a Sewer Pipe Issue
Our plumbers in Fort Worth are provided with the latest technology for identifying and repairing problems in your home’s plumbing in Fort Worth. When drain or sewer pipe problems occur, our licensed plumbers can provide a fast and accurate diagnosis with a video pipe inspection. The inspection, also called a sewer camera, uses a high-resolution waterproof video camera attached to a flexible fiber optic cable. The camera displays a live image on a monitor for the plumber to view. With this image, our plumber in Fort Worth can identify the cause and precise location of the issue behind your drainage issues, and provide the solution.
Ben Franklin’s professional plumbers can take care of sewer pipe issues, such as a clog, leakage of sewer effluent, offset pipe, cracked or collapsed pipe. In addition, we can identify advanced deterioration of aging pipes or other issues affecting your plumbing in Fort Worth.
Not so long ago, the need for sewer pipe repair or replacement required excavation. This resulted in the destruction of the lawn, landscaping, patios, decks, driveways, sidewalks, garages and other structures. Trenchless pipe repair has made this a thing of the past in almost all situations. The trenchless method saves time and landscaping, and can be utilized in the following situations:
- To provide a larger sewer pipe when required
- Bellied, cracked, crushed, collapsed, deteriorated, and misaligned sewer pipe
- Burst sewer pipes
- Tree root infiltration of sewer pipe
- Leaking sewer pipe
- Replacement of pipe that would otherwise be inaccessible without destruction of structures
How it Works
We use the trenchless pipe repair process of pipe bursting providing a permanent repair with new pipe for your home’s sewer plumbing in Fort Worth. The process uses a bursting head to fragment the existing sewer pipe, pushing the fragments out of the way, while simultaneously pulling new pipe into place for a seamless job. Trenchless pipe repair can be utilized for sectional pipe repair or the complete replacement of the sewer line.
