You can avoid this unwelcome hassle and extensive property damage with the services of an experienced plumber like those from The Great American Plumbing Co, Inc, through trenchless sewer repair.

Trenchless Repair Options

There are two common methods of trenchless repair, pipe bursting and pipe lining. Pipe bursting typically requires two entry point holes, one near your building, and the other further out where your lines connect to the mainline. Pipe lining usually only involves one hole. Both methods are equally effective, though pipe lining may not be suitable for some types of sewage line failures.

A sewer leak on your drain line, or main sewer line, can be hard to detect and can also damage your property. Standing or ponding water from leaking sewer lines are also a health hazard and frequently go undiagnosed. Leaking drain pipes can also undermine your drain system and cause separations. Our plumbers often perform a dye test to pinpoint the source because the source of leaking water can be hard to detect. Commonly, pipes or water service lines are replaced, only to discover they were not the source of a leak. Surprisingly enough, sewer water is not always dirty or discolored and often is mistaken for a water supply line leak. Your home’s main sewer line is buried beneath the yard, it can make it more difficult to identify a possible broken sewer line. Here are a few indicators that your sewer line could be broken:


Every now and then, your toilet, kitchen sink, or shower can experience a drain that gets a little plugged up, in these instances a clog can be a quick fix. However, when a clog starts occurring with unusual frequency, especially in multiple drains, or if water is draining slowly throughout your home, this could be a sign of an obstructed sewer line.


A leaking sewer line can be caused by a break or collapse. However, according to Angie’s List, a leak is often caused by a tree root that has penetrated the piping. Some of these leaks are harder to detect than others, especially in areas where the sewer line is buried very deep underground. While a leak in the sewer line is all but invisible, it could show itself in warmer climates where it isn’t necessary to bury lines very deep because of a shallow frost line.


You might not always be able to see a sewer line problem, but there’s a good chance you will smell it. According to SFGate contributor Chris Deziel, any scent of sewer gas that is strong enough to permeate a house is a telltale sign of a plumbing problem. This could be a sign of a sewer line clog, as backups will often push smelly sewer gases up drains. However, if the odor is especially potent in the yard, the more likely scenario is that the sewer line is leaking.


If you experience any of the above, and you’ve ruled out the possibility of a clogged drain, or a broken plumbing vent, then it’s time to get help from a plumbing professional.

The sewer solutions specialists at the Great American Plumbing Co, Inc can easily assess the situation and perform a sewer line repair, with minimal digging and trenching, while limiting the mess and unsavory odors.
