What Are the Best Ways to Prevent Main Sewer Line Breaks?

In some situations, preventing a sewer line break is impossible. Old, outdated piping, invasive root growth, and earthquakes can lead to sewer line break even when you do everything right. However, there are several precautions all homeowners should take to ensure their pipes remain undamaged.

  • Grease Disposal – Grease and oils may seem like something you can pour down your drains. After all, they are liquid. However, grease and oil can become easily trapped in your sewer lines and cause build-up. The build-up will eventually cause too much stress on the sewer lines, causing them to crack. Instead, dispose of your cooking oils and grease in the trash.
  • Only Flush Toilet Paper – We recommend only flushing toilet paper down the toilet. Other products may be labeled as “flushable,” but in our experience, they often clog, leading to damage to the main sewer line.
  • Routine Cleaning – Regular drain line cleaning is one of the best ways to prevent damage to your home’s main sewer line. When debris and sediment are left on the line for long periods of time, it can erode the pipe. Cleanings remove the sediment and debris to ensure a smooth flow.

We can repair your pipes without needing to excavate your lawn. The process is completed in just a few hours. As experienced professionals, we have experience dealing with and repairing various issues with sewer lines. Our process includes:

  • Assessment – The first step is to identify the cause of the issue and the exact location of the break. Our team uses a video camera to inspect your pipes.
  • Access Points – Next, we’ll dig two access points used to feed the new pipe liner through the existing, damaged pipe.
  • Insert the Liner – Our team will feed the liner through the tube to the second access point. The liner is mixed with epoxy, which hardens, and repairs the pipe.
  • Inflation – Using compressed air, we’ll inflate the liner so it sets flush up against the perimeter of the existing pipe. The new liner is highly durable and will last for years.
