Sewer Repair in Grand Forks
Sewer line issues one of the worst possible problems any homeowner can face. No one wants to have a toilet that won’t flush or, even worse: sewage backing up into the house. But when an investigation of these issues turns up a faulty sewer lateral, it can be a truly painful expense. There are many reasons why a sewer line might fail and need to be repaired, and aging pipes are the most common one. Sewer pipes that were installed in North Dakota back in the 60s and 70s were usually made of cast-iron or clay, and both of these materials have a series of disadvantages.
For cast-iron pipes, corrosion is the biggest enemy. As time passes, the water flowing in these pipes corrodes the bottom surface, breaking it away and exposing the soil beneath. This can cause clogs and even completely stop the water from being able to pass through. Clay pipes, on the other hand, become brittle after several decades of usage, so cracks and holes start to appear which leak water into the ground.
Tree roots are another problem. It is impossible for you to know where the sewer line crosses your property since it is buried underground. It’s not unusual for a tree to be planted directly over the pipes or close to them, which makes it easy for the roots to reach them. Once they find a crack or loose fitting between the pipes, they can enter and start to grow inside, causing a blockage that will build up as time passes.

While we are all very familiar with the traditional utility excavation and can dig out sewer pipes to repair them, in some situations we might recommend a trenchless approach, which could require no digging at all since we will use the existing cleanouts on your property. It is a non-invasive process that takes a much shorter time to complete than the traditional method.
Using specialized video cameras, we can diagnose any problem in the sewer and locate the problematic area. Once we know what needs to be corrected, we can proceed to fix it in the most efficient way. Clogs and tree roots that are slowing down the water flow can be removed by using high-pressure water hoses that pick up any debris and flush it away. Holes and cracks can be corrected by using a liner that is inserted into the pipes and seals the leaks; it is a long-term solution that can last for over 50 years.
