Sewer Line Repair & Replacement
Savannah sewer line repair and replacement that’s affordable and done to code.
The most common cause of sewer line problems in Savannah, Georgia are tree roots. We love the incredible tree canopy in Savannah, but underground is a world of pain for your sewer pipes. Tree roots are always seeking moisture and your sewage pipes are a great source of that. Over time, a sewer pipe can flex and bend. This flexion can cause little cracks to emerge that leak out small amounts of moisture. This is all a tree root needs to become attracted to your pipes and start burrowing.

CONVENTIONAL OR TRENCH METHOD
A backhoe may be used to open a trench to access the entire pipe system. The pipe is then removed, replaced and afterward, the entire trench is filled in again.
In some scenarios, we may not have to dig up the entire space to gain access to your problematic sewer line. Digging a large trench can be very invasive and is rather inconvenient. Trenchless methods of sewer repair can last up to 50 years. They include:
An ingenious, new method of sewer line replacement that involves running a new pipe through the old one. Only two holes are dug (at the beginning and end of the line) and the old pipe is shattered by the new one. The damage to the surrounding landscaping is minimal and can be especially useful when the sewage line runs under your home or tarmac driveway.
The practice of inserting a flexible resin coated tube into the broken pipe. The resin hardens over a short period of time and what you have left is a pipe inside a pipe. Sure, the diameter of the pipe is a quarter inch smaller, but it is by no means unable to function as a perfectly good sewer pipe.
