Should You Repair or Replace Your Sewer Line?
Damaged sewer lines are often the result of:
- Corroded piping
- Invasive tree roots
- Disturbance from nearby construction or settling soil
- Blockages caused by foreign objects or excessive buildup
Your Manhattan sewer line repair experts at Taylor Group will recommend the best solution for your particular needs after a thorough video pipe inspection. We’ll snake a special drain camera through your pipe system to accurately identify the affected area(s). Once we’ve targeted the source of the issue, we will discuss repair or replacement options with you.
Sewer line repair services
Sewer lines with localized breaks or leaks can be repaired instead of undergoing a full pipe replacement. Here are a couple sewer line repair solutions we can perform for you.
Traditional method: This involves digging up the affected area to proceed with pipe repair. Our fully-stocked service trucks house a number of pipe joints and fittings for fast turnarounds. We are proud to carry quality products from leading manufacturers such as Victaulic.
Pipe lining: Pipes that are still structurally sound but suffering from leaks or cracks may benefit from sewer line repair using the pipe lining (cured-in-place) method. A tube coated with epoxy resin is traced through your existing pipeline. The tube is then inflated and the resin is left to harden and dry in place. This results in a completely new sewer line—a “pipe within a pipe”!
Benefits of pipe lining include better water flow, stronger resistance to tree root damage, and long-term reliability (built to last over 50 years). Plus, since pipe lining is considered a trenchless sewer repair method, there’s no need for extensive digging; this leaves your building or home free of unsightly excavations.
Sewer line replacement services
Pipes that are considerably weakened or collapsed will require replacement. We offer both traditional and less invasive sewer line replacement options for our Manhattan customers.
Traditional: This method will require excavating part of your property, but we will do so carefully to avoid disturbing significant or aesthetic elements of your building. The new pipe material we lay in will depend on your specific needs and preferences. Options include PVC, ABS, clay, or cast iron pipes. Our experts will review these options with you before the job starts.
Pipe bursting: Similar to pipe lining, pipe bursting involves trailing a new pipe through your existing line. But what makes it different from the former is that instead of creating a pipe within a pipe, the new pipe replaces the old one by breaking it apart (bursting it). This method only requires two access holes so you don’t have to worry about any major digging.
