Both water mains and sewer mains can be replaced in most cases with minimal digging. The process begins by checking with local utility companies to make sure that there are no other buried utilities near the main that needs replaced. Next, and small hole is dug at the house end of the main, and one at the hook-up to the city’s water main or sewer main. If there is a main already in place, the next step is to discover its condition by running a camera on a powered cable line up through the pipe to learn about the conditions inside the pipe. If it is full of tree roots, has a collapsed area or has developed a leak through simple wear, we’ll find the problem. Next, an auger is run through the space, cleaning out debris. If the old main is in too bad a condition to repair, a new excavation for a replacement line can be dug using an auger. A collapsible main pipe is then inserted – in either the old pipe or in the new space – and allowed to expand. All that needs done at this point is to hook it up at the house end and at the city end.
