Charlotte Sewer Line Repair & Replacement

We’re not just repairing pipes; we’re protecting properties, preserving comfort, and ensuring the health and safety of families.

Common Sewer Problems

Sewer systems are prone to various issues that can disrupt their normal function. 

Some common problems include:

  • Blockages and clogs: Items that don’t break down easily, such as wipes, feminine hygiene products, and excessive amounts of toilet paper, can create stubborn clogs in sewer lines.
  • Tree root intrusion: These roots can grow within the pipes and lead to significant damage and flow disruption.
  • Pipe damage: This can lead to collapses in the sewer line, restricting flow or causing complete blockages.
  • Sewer line bellies: A “belly” in your sewer line occurs when a section of the pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a low spot where waste collects and causes blockages.
  • Leaks and infiltration: Cracks or holes in sewer pipes can allow groundwater to infiltrate the system, diluting sewage, and overwhelming treatment facilities. 
  • Corrosion and wear: Chemical reactions and natural wear can corrode metal pipes, weakening structural integrity and eventual leaks or breaks.
  • Improper installation: This can develop chronic problems, such as leaks or blockages, requiring professional repair or replacement. 

When to Repair vs. Replace Sewer Lines

Determining whether to repair or fully replace your sewer line depends on the extent and type of damage. 

When to repair:

  • Localized or minor pipe damage
  • Repairs are more cost-effective than replacement
  • Newer systems with occasional problems
  • Damage repairable without major excavation

When to replace:

  • Pipes have reached or exceeded lifespan over 50 years
  • Persistent issues and continuous repairs
  • Extensive damage throughout the system
  • Updating to meet current regulations
  • Space expansions requiring greater capacity

Methods We Use for Sewer Line Repair & Replacement in Charlotte

We employ various techniques to address specific issues within your sewer line, ensuring effective and lasting solutions. 

Repair methods:

  • Pipe snaking uses a flexible metal cable, called a plumber’s snake or drain auger that is fed through the sewer line to dislodge blockages and restore flow.
  • Pipe patching is a spot repair method where a section of pipe liner impregnated with epoxy resin is applied to seal the damaged area.

Replacement methods:

  • Open trench excavation is a traditional method where a trench is dug along the entire length of the sewer line to remove and replace the old pipes.

At Charlotte Plumbing Masters, our experts can assess the condition of your sewer lines using advanced diagnostics and recommend the most appropriate and cost-effective solution. We prioritize customer satisfaction and stand behind our work with a satisfaction guarantee in Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and beyond.
