Sewer Line Repair

Rite-a-way offers sewer line repair, replacement and installation services for those experiencing any of the following:

  • Damaged, broken, cracked or collapsed piping - pipe that have been compromised due to freezing, settling conditions.
  • Corrosion damage - rapid deterioration of piping due to exposure to elements, which leads to restricted water flow and pipe collapses.
  • Bellied pipe - piping that has sunken beneath the soil that becomes burdened by waste, paper or other items.
  • Leaking joints - occurs when the sealing mechanism between pipes is broken, leaks into area outside of the pipe happen.
  • Root invasion in sewer line – tree roots grow within sewer line and cause damage and prevent proper cleaning
  • Off-grade pipe- when pipes fail to perform over time due to substandard use of material.

Rite-a-way are certified and trained in the use of state-of-the art technologies used in repair of all plumbing or drainage problems. These services include sewer line replacement and repair services.

Traditional repair methods - The “trench” or “open cut” method is commonly used to access the surrounding areas that are damaged. In these scenarios, a backhoe may be required to refill and open the area.

Trenchless repair methods - This method preserves the yard and protects the property from damage. Unlike other approaches, this method doesn’t cause nearly as much property damage when the services are performed.

Pipe bursting – Small holes are made to the damaged area to gain access to the pipes. The damaged portions of the pipe are broken up, removed and replaced. Newer pipes installed are sturdier and are less vulnerable to root penetration and corrosion problems.

Pipe relining - Damaged pipes are repaired with the installation of internal pipes, which serve to optimize water flow and restore functionality to its original state. The epoxy relining is molded into the outer layer of piping, creating an inner lining.

Pipe relining tasks are often performed using the clean-out access. This practice involves less digging. This is often used to repair piping damaged by root invasion, cracking, resealing and filling in missing piping. Relining can be doing using roof drain pipes, underground, beneath concrete and in storm lines. The relining materials have no seams. This provides added durability. Materials are also non-hazardous, promoting safety.
