Frequently Asked Questions about Sewer System Replacement

When you need sewer system replacement at your Crystal home, it can be a stressful time. You might have a lot of questions about the process and what to expect. Call us so we can answer those questions and get you on our schedule. But in the meantime, here are some of the questions we hear the most often about sewer system replacement.

Q: What are trenchless sewer repairs and why are they so popular?

A: Trenchless sewer repair offers sewer repairs and replacement without the need to dig long trenches to do the work. Basically, we pull a resin-based liner through your existing pipes and then inflate it. The liner adheres to the inside of your current pipe and lays over any cracks. We only need to dig a hole at the point of entry. This means you will not have to worry about having your yard or garden dug up to get the work done. It is a less stressful process that can be done to most homes and sewer systems. There are a few variables, so we can tell you more about this type of repair work when you call us.

Q: When it comes to sewer system replacement, what are some of the most common reasons people call you for this service?

A: One of the worst enemies of a sewer system is a tree. The root system of a tree can grow pretty far underground, and when one of those roots grows into your sewer pipes, it can cause the pipe to crack. Keep this in mind as you are planting new trees. Keep them as far from your sewer pipes as possible. Another way to keep your sewer system in good shape is to have it regularly cleaned by professionals.

Q: How can I try to avoid sewer system replacement?

A: While you cannot put off getting a new sewer system forever, there are some ways you can keep your sewer system in good shape. For one thing, get them cleaned by professionals on a regular basis. And make sure you do not flush anything down your toilets except for human waste and toilet paper.

If you have questions about sewer system replacement that is not on this list, call us and we can answer them.
