Keep It Clean or Pursue a Sewer System Replacement

You may just be in need of a sewer system replacement at your Richfield home. Your sewer system down, this is no doubt a troubling time for you. You likely have questions about how a sewer system replacement would unfold. Do not hesitate to call us at Gene’s Water and Sewer where we will tackle your questions, address your concerns and get you all set up on our schedule.

Somewhat regular cleaning of your sewer system (which we can gladly conduct) can go a long way in prevention of a sewer system replacement. If your plumbing is beyond the cleaning point and is in need of repair, you do have options. A trenchless sewer repair yields sewer system replacements and repairs sans digging a gigantic  trench to get the work done. In a nutshell, a resin-based liner is pulled through your existing pipes and is then inflated. This liner adheres to the innards of your current piping and covers any cracks. A hole is only required at the deemed point of entry. Going about your sewer system replacement in this fashion means you do not have to concern yourself with being troubled over  having your property (garden, landscaping and/or yard) to have the replacement completed. This process is a lot less in the way of hassle that can be implemented at most homes and with most sewer systems. Existing variables (as per your property, piping and plumbing set-up) need to be addressed—which we can cover when you call us.

Maybe deeply rooted trees are your problem? A tree’s root system can grow very deep into the ground, below the surface. Often, these roots grow into your sewer pipes, causing stress on your piping, ultimately cracking them. Make sure that this is at the forefront of your mind if you choose to plant new trees. Place your new trees as far away from your sewer pipes as is possible.

You may not be able to put off a sewer system replacement for too long, but, you can take some steps to keep your sewer system in its best possible shape. Getting your pipes cleaned by professionals on something of a schedule will help, as will being sensible with your flushes. Do not flush anything down your toilets other than toilet paper and human waste.

Traditional Sewer Repair and Replacement

Innovations in sewer replacement and repair technologies have made the dreaded, much-maligned digging and tunneling techniques of yesteryear somewhat more obsolete. The semi-trenchless technique, involving a hole starting at the house, uses a fused pipe, eliminating the need for joints, and stops infiltration and exfiltration. A new pipe replaces the old where it bursted. Trenchless repairs (using patented “Nu Flow” technologies) , a true “no dig” technique, uses a resin-based pipe coating—free of joints—to repair issues. A smoother pipe type, flow increases and costs diminish.

Sometimes there is no avoiding the all-encompassing, dig and tunnel of the traditional repair. If multiple bursts occur throughout the sewer line, a full sewage system back-up or clog has emerged, or tree roots grow into and crack pipes, a sewer replacement is likely in order. The average sewer replacement bill in Roseville can run anywhere from $2000-$15,000, depending on a wide array of circumstances.

By this point, prevention techniques have failed, sewer replacement work is definitely needed. Roseville calls upon Gene’s Water & Sewer for such work. 38 years of experience, consistent on-time job completion and a money back guaranteed $99 camera inspection, Gene’s does it right.
