How to Deal With Sewer Line Corrosion

Corroded pipes become weak and can tend to crack and break over time. Because of this, it’s important to schedule prompt sewer line repair in Charlotte, NC. At Charlotte Plumbing Masters, we offer several ways for dealing with corroded pipes. These include:

Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is the process of clearing the interior of your pipes using highly pressurized water. We often perform hydro jetting before sewer repair services and as part of drain maintenance. The water is powerful enough to blast away any clogs, buildup, tree roots, and corrosion inside the pipe! Additionally, hydro jetting is safe to use on all types of pipes, even old ones, as long as the existing pipe is still stable.

Pipe Bursting

If the corrosion has spread to the neighboring pipes and we need to replace sewer line, we would recommend pipe bursting. This trenchless alternative to traditional replacement breaks the damaged pipe into pieces and simultaneously installs the new pipe in its place. Unlike traditional replacement that can take days to complete, pipe bursting can be finished within a few hours.

Sewer Pipe Lining

If the corrosion has caused other problems like cracks in your pipe, we will perform sewer pipe lining after hydro jetting. This sewer repair process involves inserting an epoxy-filled liner into the damaged pipe. The epoxy seals any cracks or leaks and is left to cure overnight. Once it has hardened, you are left with a like-new pipe surface free from any corrosion.

If none of these methods are ideal because the pipe is too old, unstable, or damaged, we will recommend traditional sewer line replacement. At Charlotte Plumbing Masters, we specialize in pipe repair and replacement services. When you need lasting solutions to pipe corrosion and other plumbing problems, don’t hesitate to contact our professional team. Schedule an appointment today.
