As a company that offers sewer system replacement in Crystal and the surrounding areas, we often hear the same questions from our customers before, during and after the replacement process. So we thought we would take the time to answer the ones we hear the most often.
Q: I keep hearing about trenchless sewer repairs. What are they and why are they so popular?
A: Trenchless sewer repair is becoming more and more popular as more homeowners learn about what it is. It is basically the only true “no dig” technology where a resin-based liner is pulled through your existing pipes. It is then “inflated” using special equipment and it will then adhere to the old pipe, filling in cracks and other small fissures. This is a great way to avoid digging up your lawn, grass, driveway and landscaping when you need a sewer system replacement or repair done.
Q: What are some common reasons people call you for help with sewer system replacement?
A: Some of the biggest culprits when it comes to damaging your sewer system are tree roots. They can grow into your pipes and cause them to crack, which can then cause a leak or other issues. When you are planting new trees, make sure you figure out where your sewer system is and plant them as far from them as possible. You should also have your sewer system and pipes cleaned out on a regular basis.
Q: What are some ways I can avoid sewer system replacement or, at the very least, avoid it for as long as possible?
A: As we mentioned before, watch where you plant trees and other plants with extensive root systems. Make sure your sewer pipes are professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Also, make sure you do not flush anything down your toilets besides human waste and toilet paper. If anything else is flushed on a regular basis, it can cause problems with your system and could eventually lead to the need for sewer system replacement.
