When Excavation is the Only Option

Facing a Broken Sewer Line? When Excavation is the Only Option


A broken sewer line is a major plumbing emergency, causing disruption and potential health hazards. In most cases, the best course of action is to address the issue promptly. Very often excavation remains the only viable solution.

Here are some situations where excavation is necessary for sewer line repair:

  • Extensive Pipe Damage: When a sewer line suffers severe cracks, complete collapse, or significant corrosion, trenchless methods may not be able to provide enough structural reinforcement. Excavation allows for complete access to the damaged section, enabling thorough repair or replacement of the pipe.
  • Tree Root Intrusion: Persistent tree root blockages, especially those causing extensive damage to the pipe, often require excavation for removal. This allows for complete removal of the roots and proper repair or replacement of the affected pipe section. 
  • Line Collapse: In cases where the sewer line has entirely collapsed, excavation is necessary to access and replace the damaged section. This ensures a complete and lasting solution to the problem.
  • Limited Access Areas: When the sewer line runs underneath structures like foundations, driveways, or patios, trenchless methods might have limited accessibility. Excavation, while disruptive, might become the only option for reaching and repairing the damaged pipe.
