Sewer lines play an important role in your home’s day-to-day. Therefore, if you are noticing slow drains, recurring clogs, or other signs of a problem, you'll absolutely benefit from the sewer repair services in Gastonia, NC offered by Next Level Pipe Lining. Below, we focus on just how to determine whether you'll need sewer repair or replacement.
Assessing the Damage
The first step to take when deciding whether to repair or replace sewer line is to consider the signs you're seeing and assess the damage. Start with signs suggesting there's a problem. The most common ones include:
- Blockages and backflows
- Slow drains
- Bad sewer odors
- Damp or soggy spots on your grass
Assessing the damage is something we can help with. We normally do this with a sewer camera inspection that provides a detailed look at the inside of the affected sewer line.
Other Important Factors
Other factors to consider when making a decision between sewer line replacement and repair include the age of your sewer line, the current condition of the affected pipe, the frequency of repairs and the possible long-term results associated with repair/replacement
Trenchless sewer line repair can certainly extend the life of an existing pipe. However, if a pipe has collapsed or is older and extensively damaged and corroded, a replacement can give you a brand new pipe with an even longer lifespan.
Weighing Your Options
Knowing what options you have available can also help you decide between sewer pipe line repair and replacement. At Next Level Pipe Lining, we repair concrete, clay, and cast iron pipes. Our preferred method is cured-in-place pipe lining (CIPP), which is essentially pipe-within-a-pipe repair. It's often a viable solution as long as the affected sewer line is still stable.
