Plumbing Excavation in Philadelphia, Bucks County, & Montgomery County

In the event that you need extensive repairs or you are getting a whole new plumbing system installed, excavation work is often required. Between getting permits, locating damaged pipes, performing the labor, and cleaning up afterwards, plumbing excavation can seem like an overwhelming task you don’t want to take on. That’s why we handle the entire process from start to finish so you, the property owner, can rest assured. Bill Frusco Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling offers plumbing excavation in Philadelphia, Montgomery County, and Bucks County for both residential and commercial properties.

Do You Need Plumbing Excavation Work?

Is your indoor or outdoor sump pump having issues sealing? Do you suspect there’s something wrong with your drain or dehumidifier? These are both instances that may require excavation work.

You may need excavation work if:

  • You have plumbing clogs you can’t seem to clear – Having just one clogged toilet or sink may not require excavation work. But multiple clogged drains, toilets, or sinks is usually an indicator of a bigger issue.
  • Your property has slow drainage.
  • There are odors coming from your sink or toilet – This is a dead giveaway that something isn’t right in your sewer system.
  • You notice sinkholes or indentations outside your property – Sometimes the surface of your property is the only place where signs of a plumbing problem are showing. This is why it’s important to not ignore wetness, odors, or other strange changes in your lawn.
  • You have large tree roots on your property that may be invading your pipes. Trees make your property beautiful, but sometimes your plumbing pays the price. Trees that have grown very tall require a thick, extensive root system, and this can easily become tangled with your underground plumbing. 

Check Your Landscaping

One of the most surprising symptoms of sewer problems is flourishing patches of lawn. If you have a section of your lawn that looks very different from the rest (eg. it is very wet with frequent puddling, or it is growing much faster), this could be a sign of a sewer line backup. As you flush your toilet and use water on your property, water flows through the pipes but gets disrupted at the location that needs repair. The water may then seep out into the ground, eventually creating a muddy mess underneath your lawn.

Keep an Eye on Older Plumbing

The older your pipes and sewer line, the more inevitable a breakdown is. All of your plumbing, no matter how sturdy and durable it looks, has a limited lifespan. A sewer line can be made of materials like plastic, concrete, or metal, all of which have varying levels of durability. The average sewer line has a lifespan of about 50 to 100 years, meaning a replacement is inevitable at some point. You may or may not be living on a property when that day comes. 

Plumbing Replacement in Philadelphia

If a sewer line has burst, replacement work must be done. Pipes can burst from very low temperatures or from pressure created by shifting soil on your property. Both of these are difficult to prevent, as you don’t have control over the elements. In any case, it will require a new sewer line installation, which a plumbing crew can handle without a problem. Once replaced, all of your plumbing symptoms should disappear. 

Camera Line Inspections

Plumbing excavations are intensive, so if it is possible to avoid it, our team will let you know how. Identifying the root problem is the first and most important step. This can often be done with the help of a video inspection tool. Our team will send a camera line down into your pipes to see if we can identify a problem. Often, damaged pipes are the culprit. Pipes can become corroded, cracked, or blocked by tree roots or other outside debris. It’s also possible to have a collapsed sewer line, which can cause your drains to overflow and waste water to come back up after you flush the toilet. In these instances, you’ll need to get in touch with a team that does emergency plumbing excavation in Philadelphia. Major plumbing and sewer issues never fix themselves. That’s why it’s important to act quickly so things don’t get worse. 

Trenchless Pipe Replacements

Trenchless pipe repair and replacement is a newer and easier way to handle issues with underground pipes. Rather than digging up large sections of the ground or removing walls and flooring to get to pipes, trenchless sewer repair allows crews to install new piping within the old pipes. This process can save property owners hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in clean-up and repair costs that would have been needed with traditional pipe repair methods. In addition to preventing property damage, trenchless methods reduce the risk of health and environmental hazards that can occur during sewer repairs.

If you are looking to preserve the integrity of your property during the excavation process, take advantage of our trenchless pipe replacement service. This modern excavation method allows homeowners to avoid property damages and get plumbing issues taken care of cleanly and efficiently.
