Boston has very old sewer pipes. The Boston Water and Sewer Commission says that our city’s first sewer systems go back to the early 1900s. Of course, the city has replaced large portions of the sewer system since. However, we still deal with the consequences of an aging pipe system.
How Sewer Pipes Get Damaged
Sewer lines are made of any of these materials: clay, cast iron or plastic. The issue is that no matter how strong these pipes are, they have been underground for decades. As you can imagine, sewer pipes are submitted to a heavy workload from the things that flow through them, but what really damages them is everything that is around them.
For example, something as simple as a tree being close to a sewer line can lead to a root intrusion. And once the root is in, it will feed off the water flowing in the pipe, and grow until it completely blocks the pipe.
Another common problem is pipe collapsing. Basically, this happens when a section of the sewer line moves out of place due to, again, roots intruding or ground shifts around the pipe. Pipe collapsing is particularly difficult to deal with because it’s not damage that can be repaired directly. The pipe is out of place, which means it has to be restored in place, or the pipe might be completely destroyed, and a repair won’t be enough.
In any case, at New England Pipe Restoration we have tools to repair any sewer dysfunction you may be dealing with. Our most popular and effective method is called trenchless sewer repair, and it renews your pipes from the inside out. Here are some reasons why this method is better than a regular sewer repair:
Think Renewing, not Repairing. Repairing implies patching up. All that a traditional sewer repair service does is put a band-aid on the pipe. Things like clamps and soldering are common ways to repair damaged pipes. These are not bad solutions, but they are not the best. Instead, our service gives you a brand new pipe at a fraction of the cost, and in a matter of hours.
No Digging Up. The biggest problem with sewer repairing is how messy and slow it is. All of us at Boston think that The Big Dig is more than enough excavating for a lifetime. So digging up sewage dirt all around your property is not something we want to put you through. Our trenchless system takes care of any sewer problem you have without the need of an excavation project.
Costs Less. The great thing about our trenchless sewer repair method is that because we don’t need to dig anything, you don’t have to pay the excavation. We can give you a free estimate so you get an idea of the cost of the project. And if you are really interested, we can schedule a visit to your property to get you an exact quote.
