Sewer Line Replacement for Midwest
Midwest Plumbing, does more than just complete plumbing repairs and drain cleaning for your Midwest area home. We can also repair or replace water and sewer lines to correct a number of problems, including:
- Broken, cracked pipes — damaged pipes due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
- Root infiltration — tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning and/or have damaged the line.
- Corrosion — the pipe has deteriorated and/or broken, causing collapses in the line and restricting flow.
- Leaking joints — the seals between pipes have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.
Sometimes, when a tree encroaches on your plumbing, there’s little you can do about the tree itself – especially if it’s your neighbor’s tree. Tree roots can infiltrate your sewer line and break your pipes. However, there is a way to solve the problem and save your sewer line. Use a root barrier. A root barrier made of plastic will prevent a nearby tree root from damaging your sewer line. The root barrier will also keep the tree root from lifting up the sidewalk or destroying a retaining wall.
