Sewer systems are typically not thought of until a problem arises. If your pipes are backing up, your drains are moving slowly, or you’re noticing pooling or strange smells a professional can help you determine whether a partial or total excavation should be performed to fix any contributing issues. Excavations can address a wide range of pipe issues fully, resulting in high-quality repairs that will last for decades to come.
What Are Pipe Excavations?
Excavations involve removing the dirt and objects located above and around your pipes so that they can be repaired or replaced. While trenchless options such as pipe relining can fix a wide array of problems, certain in-depth repairs, replacement, or installations may be better accomplished with excavations. For instance, if a system is failing beyond repair and cannot be lined due to the drastic amount of damage, an excavation is a great option for replacing the pipe or pipe system.
How We Determine an Excavation is Needed
Before beginning any type of repair or replacement work, we first take an in-depth look at your pipes to diagnose any issues present as well as their condition. To accomplish this, we perform a sewer camera inspection which uses a small, high-definition camera that is inserted into the pipes and pushed through the system. As it is fed through the line, our expert technicians are able to capture high-quality photos and videos of the inside of your pipes. We closely review the footage to pinpoint the exact location of any blockages, cracks, or other damage in your system. If there are complete breakages or the majority of the system is deemed failing, we will evaluate whether we need to perform an excavation.
While the excavation process does involve digging, we work strategically to ensure that all of our repairs are completed in the most convenient and least invasive ways possible. Our team takes our time to work specifically on the area located above your pipes, minimizing digging to leave you with as little mess as possible. Moreover, after the replacement of the pipes we replace the moved earth and clean up any remaining dirt and debris to leave your property clean and in need of as few renovations as possible.
