Sewer Line Repair Dallas Tx
Every home and most buildings in the DFW are equipped with sewer lines that are responsible for transporting waste water and solid waste away from the property safely. This sewage as it is called, is moved from the home or building to the city’s sewer system or in some cases to a private septic tank that is located on site. Sewer lines play an extremely vital roll in keeping people safe and healthy and containing deadly bacteria located in waste water.
However, over time just like water lines, sewer lines can break down or decay! This inevitably leads to health hazards and serious property damage. Common causes of a broken sewer line are tree root intrusions, shifting grounds, and general decay.

Common Causes of Sewer Line Issues
When it comes to sewer line issues, the leading causes have remained rather consistent over the years with the exception being “flushable wipes” that have recently come into markets. You see, the single leading cause of sewer line problems is when debris gets flushed down the toilet that shouldn’t be. And although Charmin and Cottonelle may bill these wet wipes as flushable, they are not degradable in the same way that standard toilet paper is. They can cause serious clogs, pressure build up, and breaks in sewer lines!
The most common causes of sewer line issues are:
- Paper products

Traditional Sewer Line Repair Method
The traditional method for repairing a damaged sewer line is to dig up the line to expose any sections that might be damaged, corroded, or broken. This digging process is typically done by backhoe or with heavy duty machinery depending on how deep the line is buried. For instance, homes with basements will have sewer lines that are buried much deeper than homes on slab foundations. So we will dig holes every 3 feet along the slab to determine the extent of the damage, and then tunnel through underneath the holes to replace the pipes. This is a cost effective way of dealing with a Sewer Line Repair in Dallas, Tx underneath a slab.
Other options for repairing the line will might include removing and replacing the entire main sewer line or cutting away and replacing a small section. Typically this is known as re-routing.

Depending on the location, or extent of damage of your sewer line, we can dig a trench that stays primarily outside of your home, and replace all old material with brand new PVC piping. This would ensure the cost effectiveness, as well as the understanding that your homes Sewer Line with remain functioning properly for decades to come!
