Common Signs of Sewer Problems

Sewer problems can cause major sanitation issues and plumbing backups on any type of property. If you suspect your sewer isn’t working like it should, look for the following warning signs:

  • A sewage odor coming from your drains
  • Multiple drains aren’t working on your property
  • Bubbles in your toilet or drain
  • Clogged drains
  • Sewage coming from cleanout pipes located outside

If you notice any of these symptoms, it is unlikely to be an issue you can fix on your own. With the help of a company that does sewer repair in Philadelphia, you can prevent or repair serious sewer line problems like:

  • Bellied pipes
  • Cracked pipes
  • Corrosion
  • Roots in the sewer line
  • Off-grade piping

How Sewer Repair Works

Traditional sewer line repair or on-site repair involves excavating and even removing a wall to replace the entire pipe. This type of repair is faster, unless the blockage has returned to the main sewer line or affects more than one pipe. This allows you to repair the sewer pipe faster with less damage to the area.

Trenchless Sewer Repair and Replacement 

It is possible to repair only the sewer without replacing the entire pipe. Existing sewers can also be covered with a kind of casing to avoid cracks in the pipes. Hydraulic power can be used to break parts of the pipe, and new seamless pipes can be used to replace the broken parts. 

This trenchless method uses hydraulics to further break down the old damaged pipe and smoothly replace it with new pipe. In the event of a complete line break or interruption, repair usually requires excavation of the old system and installation of a complete replacement system. For example, if a pipe collapses, leans backward, or has the wrong slope, trenchless repair methods may not work. 

Whether trenchless sewer repair is right for you depends largely on the condition of the damaged pipes. The only way to determine if trenchless sewer repairs will solve your particular problem is to have a qualified sewer repair contractor in Philadelphia come out and inspect the problem.

Broken Pipe Repair

When the sewer is too damaged to use the pipe lining method, a more invasive repair can be done without trenching. This minimally invasive method can repair damaged drains without the extensive excavation typically associated with sewer repair. 

Trenchless sewer pipe repairs such as pipe rupture and pipe lining are minimally invasive and known for their durability. The main benefit of trenchless sewer repairs is the fact that we can do a lot of work (and inspections) without diverting traffic or digging a trench on your property. We will eliminate any unnecessary excavation, meaning construction sites and concrete can appear intact when we perform our sewer repair services or even replace sewer lines.    

These improvements will allow fewer aquifers to enter the sewer system when it rains. Another way to reduce the cost of future sewer repairs is to invest in replacing old sewer pipes with new ones that will resist root damage. 

Sewer Pipe Repair Methods

For sewers close to the surface, broken pipes can quickly start collecting water that seeps into the grass and becomes visible at the surface. When pipes become clamped, they must be replaced so that wastewater does not contaminate the ground. 

When a pipe is clogged, it can often be cleared out with an auger. With regular inspections and sewer cleaning services, you can prevent debris from entering your pipes, as well as cracks, clogs, or ruptures. 

You can help your sewer system by watching for warning signs, keeping the system clean, and minimizing repairs as needed. To prevent further damage, it is important to be aware of the signs of a damaged sewer system so that you can take immediate action and contact an experienced service professional. 


Using trenchless sewer repair methods can seem more expensive than traditional methods until the cost of replacing damaged property is taken into account. Trenchless repairs use the cleaning of existing plumbing (usually located outside the home) and small access points to restore drain pipes from the inside. Trenchless pipe repair structurally rebuilds an existing pipe inside using failed or worn pipe as a foundation, rather than destructive and costly trenching followed by conventional pipe repair and subsequent restoration of damaged surfaces (floors, walls, foundations, furniture, etc.)
