Santa Maria Trenchless Sewer Repair
When a homeowner hears they have a major rupture or clog in their main sewer line, thoughts of how much it will cost to fix and how much damage it will do to their finely-landscaped yard fill their head. It used to be that the only way to fix a sewer line was to dig it up, but that’s no longer the case.
Today, plumbers have trenchless pipe replacement as an option, so let’s look at its benefits.
Causes of Sewer Line Damage
Nobody likes talking about sewage problems, but it’s a part of owning a home. Without a functioning waste disposal system, your home and family are at risk of contracting diseases, mold and mildew growth, and other damage. These problems occur when there’s damage to your main sewer line. But what causes it?
One of the most common causes of sewer line damage is tree root invasion. Tree roots are naturally attracted to wastewater, which is like fertilizer on steroids. Even if there’s a tiny crack or hole in your sewer line, it won’t take nearby trees long to notice and send their roots to take advantage. Once the roots get into the pipe, they grow uncontrollably, causing significant clogs and ruptures.
Another common problem is physical clogs, and these occur mainly because too many people treat their toilets like garbage cans, flushing items that should go into the trash. Items like feminine hygiene products, personal and baby wipes, diapers, toys, cotton balls, etc. Your sewer system wasn’t designed to handle these items, so it’s easy for them to build up over time and cause a clog.
You wouldn’t think that mice, rats, and other rodents could be dangerous to your plumbing system, but nothing could be further from the truth. Burrowing rodents loosen joints, cause small cracks to worsen, and build their homes in the pipes.
Lastly, age and wear and tear take their toll on everything, including your plumbing system. Corrosion, sediment buildup, and soil shifting contribute to sewer clogs and ruptures. While you can keep an eye on your system through routine inspection and maintenance, eventually, you’ll have to replace your sewer line.

Benefits of Trenchless Sewer Repair
As mentioned, nobody likes the thought of repairing or replacing a sewer line, but today’s homeowners have options like no-dig sewer replacement. Here are a few advantages of going this route.
Repairing or replacing a sewer line with conventional digging methods takes a lot of time and is inconvenient because homeowners typically have to haul water or relocate until the job is completed.
Also, since you don’t have to excavate the yard, you cut down on time and labor costs. Plumbers only need to dig two small holes for trenchless repair, reducing the time and clean-up costs.
It’s Less Intrusive
Like many homeowners in Santa Maria, you take pride in your manicured yard and beautiful landscaping. And the last thing you want is for a contractor to come in and tear it all up.
Jerry’s Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning is happy to provide no dig sewer replacement as an option to our customers to save money while still getting a reliable repair or replacement.
