Commercial Sewer Line Repair, Replacement & Cleaning

Roto-Rooter does more than just clear your drains. As full-service commercial plumbers, we can also repair or replace sewer pipes to correct a number of problems. Commercial building owners are responsible for maintaining the sewer lines connecting their premises to the city sewer main, generally to the curb or sidewalk. Drain and sewer pipes left in disrepair could cause flooding and groundwater contamination, representing a serious environmental hazard.


That's why Roto-Rooter offers commercial sewer line repair, commercial sewer line replacement and commercial sewer line installation to correct a number of problems, including:


  • Broken, cracked, offset or collapsed pipes: Sewer lines are damaged by shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
  • Blockage: Grease buildup or a foreign object is restricting or prohibiting proper flow and/or cleaning of the sewer line.
  • Corrosion: The sewer pipe has deteriorated and/or broken, causing sections of the pipe to collapse and restricting flow.
  • Leaking joints: The seals between pipes have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.
  • Bellied pipe: A section of the sewer pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a valley that collects paper and waste.
  • Roots in sewer line: Tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer pipe and/or roots have damaged the pipe, preventing normal cleaning.
  • Off-grade pipe: Existing pipes are constructed of substandard or outdated material that may have deteriorated or corroded.


Traditional Repair Method

Sewer line repairs are typically performed using the "open cut" or "trench" method to gain access to the area surrounding the damaged portion of the pipe. A backhoe may be used to open and refill the work area.


Trenchless Repair Methods

Trenchless repair methods cause less damage than traditional sewer line repair techniques. Thanks to Roto-Rooter, commercial sewer line repair or commercial sewer line replacement doesn't have to mean ruined parking lots, sidewalks and open trenches that put your business in a holding pattern and prevent or inhibit customer access to your facility.


Trenchless technology offered by Roto-Rooter is the latest step in quality commercial sewer line repair and sewer line replacement with almost no impact to the surrounding environmental landscape—and it's cost-effective.
