Pipe repair and replacement : A Roto-Rooter Service

When it comes to sewer line repairs, you want someone you can trust to give you peace of mind and make the right decision about the best type of repair that will protect your yard and home in the future. If you find yourself in need of pipe repair and replacement in St Petersburg, Roto Rooter is close by with several options to solve your plumbing and drain problems.

The first option for pipe repair and replacement is the traditional repair method. This involves the “open cut” or “trench” method to gain access to the area surrounding the damage to the pipe. Occasionally, a backhoe may be used to open and refill the work area.


A cleaner repair method that prevents destroyed yards or ruined driveways is the trenchless repair method. Roto Rooter professionals use this method to cause less damage than traditional repair methods with less environmental impact.

Pipe relining is a repair method that creates a “pipe within a pipe” to restore function and flow. It can be used in many situations including root-damage, to seal cracks and holes, to fill in missing pipe and seal joint connections underground, in roof drain pipes, in storm lines and under concrete. Typically, pipe relining requires little digging and can be performed through a building’s clean-out access.

Pipe bursting is a replacement method performed by using a hydraulic machine to pull a full-size replacement pipe through the old path while breaking up the old pipe at the same time. This method results in a new pipe highly resistant to leaks and root intrusion, with a long life expectancy.
