There are a few reasons why a trained plumbing technician would need to delve into the sewer for your home, including broken or collapsed pipes, a major blockage, corrosion, leaking joints, or perhaps old pipes that need to be replaced entirely.
Over time, even the sturdiest, most stalwart of pipes can become damaged and begin to shift their position in the soil. This can cause unwanted issues within the home, including buildup and backflow. No one wants to deal with such problems.
The most traditional method to perform sewer repair services is to cut open the pipe and gain access to the area around the damaged pipe itself. A backhoe may be required to dig up the ground and fix the problem. This is a big job, make no mistake.
Nothing is worse than a malfunctioning sewer system. If you’re worried that your sewer line may need to be replaced, here are some warning signs to look for that may indicate you need a sewer line replacement:

Sewer repair is typically one of the most inconvenient and expensive forms of plumbing repair. Despite being connected to their systems; the city won’t help. They turn over all responsibility to the homeowner – that’s you. The traditional process usually consists of tearing up the lawn, which is costly and increases repair times.
Nowadays, we generally opt for trenchless sewer repair. It’s a surefire repair method that costs homeowners less money and requires less time. The benefit of our method is we won’t have to dig up the lawn. We can fully restore your sewer pipes and water lines efficiently without digging extensive holes. Furthermore, repairs take less than one day, they’re less intrusive, and all repairs meet industry standards. Just because a fix takes less time doesn’t mean it’s less efficient or lower quality. At Rick’s Plumbing, we don’t believe in low-quality service. When you call us for trenchless sewer repair, we prove ourselves in the field!
A sagging sewer line is a pipe thathas developed a low point or bend, which can occur after years of use, and can cause problematic backups at your home or business. For sewer pipes to work correctly, they need to lie at a declining angle so gravity naturally draws the water downward. If the line develops a bend, whatever passes through it can become stuck, making the sewer line basically useless and potentially leading to a backup. If you believe you may have sagging sewer lines, call the team at Rick’s Plumbing. We’ll come out to diagnose the situation, thendetermine the best way to remedy the issue. We are often able to fix a sagging sewer line via trenchless repair methods, so your property does not need to be dug up. If we cannot use a trenchless method, however, we will do our best to keep your property as intact as possible while we work on getting your sewer pipes back in shape.
A sewer line collapsing is a devastating plumbing emergency, and is usually the result of an aging or offset pipe joint, or tree roots breaking into the line. Once the sewer line starts to crack and break down, the soil on top of the line crushes it and prevents all water and waste from leaving your home or business. Rick’s Plumbing has worked on countless collapsed sewer lines throughout New Haven and Fairfield counties over the past 25+ years and we can definitely help you. We will do a complete video inspection of the line to assess the damage, then perform a combination of different methods to treat the problem, including hydrojet drain cleaning, pipe lining, and pipe bursting. So if you ever suspect a problem with your sewer line, call the experts at Rick’s Plumbing ASAP!
