Collapsed Sewer Pipe Problems

The sewer pipes serving your Pacifica, Menlo Park, Daly City, or San Mateo area home play an important role. When they’re functioning correctly, sewer pipes move wastewater out of your home, into a larger sewer main, and eventually, into a municipal treatment facility. The entire sewage removal process should be simple, efficient, and convenient, but when a collapsed sewer pipe brings the flow crashing to a halt, you need professional help from Works Plumbing.

Causes of Collapsed Sewer Pipes

There are many causes of collapsed sewer pipes, but one of the most common is age. Older pipes are more susceptible to build up, breakage, and collapse. Regularly cleaned sewer pipes can perform well for many years, but over time, even the most well-maintained pipes will experience wear and tear.

Another common reason for collapsed Pacifica, CA sewer pipes is invading tree roots. Small cracks in your sewer pipes release water and nutrients into the surrounding soil, which can quickly attract aggressively growing tree roots. As those roots push their way into your sewer pipes and weaken the structural integrity of the pipeline, the pipes can break down and collapse.

Signs Your Pacifica Sewer Pipes Have Collapsed

Whether age, tree roots, misaligned joints, or something else entirely is causing your sewer pipes to collapse, the associated problems can be frustrating and unpleasant. Some of the common signs of a collapsed sewer pipe include high water bills, low water pressure, sunken areas in your yard, and sewage odors.

If you notice these or any other unusual symptoms, call our sewer pipe replacement specialists right away. We have an assortment of high quality diagnostic and replacement techniques to efficiently restore your sewer pipes.

Sewer Pipe Replacement Services

If you suspect a sewer pipe collapse, Works Plumbing will arrive at your Pacifica, CA home to begin a complete inspection. Using our state-of-the-art sewer camera, we can quickly and easily see inside your sewer pipes without digging unsightly trenches across your property. Instead of excavation, our talented technicians can dig a small entry hole and send the sewer camera into your damaged pipeline. As the camera snakes along to record footage of your pipeline interior, we can see exactly where the collapse is located. Using that information, our knowledgeable experts can customize the perfect replacement solution for your particular needs.

If a small section of pipe is collapsed, spot repair may be an effective solution. We can strategically dig down to the collapsed sewer pipe, replace the damaged portion, refill the dirt, and leave you with a durable pipeline. If the damage is more severe, a complete sewer pipe replacement may be necessary. In this case, we can use innovative trenchless pipe bursting equipment to break apart the collapsed pipe, send the fragments into the surrounding soil, and lay a brand new pipe in its place.
