The sewer line is the unsung hero of any plumbing system. Its primary function is to remove the wastewater and sewage from sinks, toilets, and showers from the home and channel it into the municipal sewage system. Sewer pipes, however, are not immune to problems, which can cause chaos in the plumbing system, including backed up toilets and drains, foul odors, costly damage underground, and flooding in the yard.Read Less <<

Common Reasons for Sewer Pipe Repairs
Main Sewer Line Corrosion
If your plumbing system was installed over 30 years ago, your pipes may begin to corrode as a result of age and less effective piping material. We also highly discourage the use of chemical drain cleaners because they can eat right through the clog and then right through the pipe.
Tree Root Invasion
When we install the main sewer line on your property, we make sure to do a proper survey of the land and install the pipes away from tree roots. Unfortunately, if your sewer pipes were installed before you moved in, you may run into issues caused by tree roots that have grown straight through the pipes.
Temperature & Moisture Changes
When temperatures change suddenly or moisture encourages the ground to shift, your main sewer line might become disconnected or cracked.
If you call us for our sewer repair services for a cracked sewer pipe, our technicians can usually patch things up. But, if the damage is too severe we may have to replace the pipe entirely or provide trenchless sewer repairs to eliminate the problem.
Trenchless Sewer Repair Services
When you have a broken sewer pipe, sometimes a repair is all you need, and other times it is easier to replace the pipe, especially if the break is far away from the home and requires minimal excavation. In more severe situations, like if the broken pipes run under the home or expensive property additions (gazebos, porches, patios, etc.), trenchless sewer repair is an excellent solution.
In general, trenchless sewer lines require almost no digging, so the home and expensive installations remain almost completely undisturbed. Here is a brief outline of Blue Sky’s trenchless sewer repair solution:
- Epoxy-coated fiberglass tube is inserted into broken pipe
- The tube will expand in the pipe (similar to a balloon).
- Epoxy hardens and a new pipe is created
A simple solution for a serious problem!
