Symptoms of Cracked Pipes
Aging pipes, natural wear and tear, tree root invasion of pipes, and cold weather can all cause cracks in your sewer or water lines. Winters in Spokane, Washington and the surrounding areas can be especially hard on plumbing systems. When your sewer or water lines are cracked, you may be able to detect the failure in a variety of ways. For example:
- Water staining or mildew may appear on walls or ceilings
- Soggy or depressed areas may develop on your landscape
- Water quality may appear discolored or have an odor
- Bubbling, whistling, or clanking noises may occur
- You may suddenly experience higher water bills
- Frequent backups may occur around drains
- You may experience a drop in water pressure
Repairing Your Cracked Pipes
Experiencing these symptoms in your home can be frightening. However, getting the proper diagnosis is a crucial first step to fixing the problem. Cracked pipes are initially diagnosed by a sewer camera inspection with a small, waterproof camera. This time and cost efficient diagnostic method aims to pinpoint the problem as accurately as possible. Once the cracked pipe is detected, a point repair solution is designed to fix the specific nature of your plumbing problem.
Cracked pipelines may be able to be fixed without destructive methods and the large, expensive excavations of more traditional methods like digging and replacing whole sections of pipe, which can take weeks. Vietzke Trenchless utilizes state-of-the-art trenchless equipment, which is a provides a solution that structurally rehabilitates your cracked pipes using only a small point of entry. A resin-soaked tube is inserted into the broken section of pipe and inflated, forcing the resin to coat the walls of the pipe and seal off any cracks or corrosion. This new resin has a long working life, and cures within a few hours. Unlike other methods which can take days or weeks, tear apart your lawn and garden, and often require the removal of large portions of piping, HammerHead® point repair methods often take a day or less and can be done beneath existing structures without damaging the integrity of your home.
