Know When Your Calgary Sewer Main Needs Replacing

Calgary sewer main replacement

As the old saying goes, what goes in, must come out – and that is so true of water and sewage. High Mark Plumbing can help with your Calgary sewer main replacement – a vital part of that in and out function of your plumbing system.

Sewer mains are usually sturdy installations, but even the best mains are subject to wear. Over time, debris can collect on the inside of the pipes, acting like plaque in arteries. Tree roots can invade, accidental digging incidents can cause damage, as can a large truck or other heavy objects that have been drawn over it. Sometimes replacing the main is the best option. Fortunately, thanks to modern technology, this can be done with minimal digging. First, all local utilities are mapped out. Then, the location of the new main is established. A powered auger is then run through the ground to drill a hole for the new main. Finally, a flexible sewer main pipe is drawn through the hole, fixtures are attached to each end and then hooked up to the house and to the appropriate sewer drain outlet. No trenches, no lunar landscapes – maybe a little bit like having a giant mole burrowing through your yard.
