Sewer Leak Repairs
Leaks in drain lines or main sewer lines are often hard to detect and can lead to the slow but steady deterioration of your drainage system. Sewers are designed to be a sealed system so that sewage cannot leach into and contaminate surrounding soil. Water from sewer leaks also poses a possible health hazard. Sewer water is not always visibly dirty, and leaking sewer pipes are often mistaken for water supply line leaks. When wastewater leaks from underground sewer pipes it gradually erodes the soil that supports the pipeline, causing a loss of structural integrity and pipe sections to separate and become offset from one another. This allows more root intrusion which further impairs drainage and causes sewage to backup into the house or business.
A skilled Roto-Rooter sewer & drain technician typically identifies structural problems within sewers attempting to unclog and clean the sewer line. The spinning Roto-Rooter cable lurches and vibrates when it encounters unusual blockages. If the spinning blades cannot get past the blockage after several attempts, the technician will withdraw the cable and inspect it. If mud is on the cable and blade, it’s a sure sign that the cable exited the sewer pipe through a hole or separation and was spinning around in the surrounding soil.
The technician will recommend that a Roto-Rooter camera technician inspect the pipeline with a video camera snake to identify problem areas and present repair options. Trust our skilled sewer solutions professionals to handle these complex situations with precision and care.
Trenchless Sewer Line Repairs in Atlanta
Conventional excavation of a sewer line involves digging a trench to expose the underground sewer pipeline running between the house and the street curb. Pipes are replaced or repaired and then the trench is refilled with dirt. But what if your sewer pipeline runs beneath your driveway, sidewalk, mature trees, landscaping, parking lot, or other areas? Trenching through these features adds expensive collateral damage that has to be replaced. In these situations Roto-Rooter offers zero-dig trenchless sewer repairs to minimize damage to surrounding structures and landscaping above sewer lines because the work is done remotely with specialized equipment that avoids contact with anything but the pipe itself. We can restore your sewer system to full functionality by digging a pair of modest access pits at either end of the pipeline. We then complete spot repairs or completely reline the existing pipe with a smooth new pipe that is as strong and reliable as a conventionally laid PVC pipe. This approach allows for a more efficient and less intrusive repair process.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How deep are most sewer lines buried?
The exact depth of sewer lines varies depending on the locality. The type of soil, bedrock, and even the weather determine the depth of your sewer line. In practice, this means a sewer line may be as shallow as 18 inches below the surface to six feet deep. If the ground freezes in your area, sewer line depths can reach as much as eight feet. State and local plumbing boards determine the depth and it is written into the local plumbing codes, which must be followed by all local plumbers and plumbing service providers.
How do you dig a trench for a sewer pipe?
Digging a trench to reach a sewer pipe requires professional expertise and excavation equipment. Without proper training, you may accidentally dig through buried power lines, gas lines, or damage existing water and sewage lines. Contact Roto-Rooter for a free consultation if you require sewer line replacement in Atlanta.
What is considered the main sewer line?
The main sewer line is a large pipe that carries sewage and wastewater away from homes and buildings and into municipal sewer pipes that lead to sewage treatment plants. Smaller branch drainpipes deliver sewage and wastewater from showers, sinks, baths, and toilets into the main sewer line. Residential sewer lines are typically 4-inches in diameter. Commercial and industrial sewer pipes may be 6-inches or more in diameter.
