Drain Pipe Replacement
If your house was built a long time ago, you probably have to look into replacing the drain pipe underneath it. Over time, drain pipes start to develop problems due to many reasons including corrosion, disconnecting of the pipe, built of mineral deposits, tree roots making their way into the pipes, etc.
Usually, once the tree roots make their way into a crack, they do not stop growing until the drainpipe has been completely destroyed, thereby, clogging your sewer line.
Also, natural disasters can take a toll on the pipes in the drainage system of your home. If you notice issues in your toilets or other drains in your home you might want to relate it to a recent natural disaster that has occurred such as floods or earthquakes.
The thing about repairing drain pipes is that you can fix it temporarily and before you know it another problem will arise. This is because as the drain pipes get old they are bound to corrode and ultimately start to fail.
Of course, you might be prone to repairing them instead of replacing them considering the cost of the project but if you add all the repairs it might end up surpassing the total cost of replacement. Repairing drain pipes is a short term solution that will get your sewer line into trouble in the long run anyway.
The cost of replacing drain pipes depends on multiple factors based on the location of your house. Also, apart from the actual replacement, there will be an additional cost of cutting and sealing the concrete slab, and the cost of replacing the damaged tile.
The ideal option would be to of course take measures to prevent it. If you are purchasing a new home, we can inspect the sewer line using our professional gear and tools. A video camera will be used to inspect every corner of the sewer line and see what state it is in. Also, regular inspection can help you prevent any sort of sewage backup disaster.
How Do You Know that Your Drain Pipe Needs Replacement?
Mold can form easily as it does not even require a lot of moisture. So even there’s a slight increase in humidity it can lead to mold growth. This could be an indication that you have a leaking or cracked drain pipe in your home.
Foul Odor or Dirty Water
A foul odor is an obvious indication that there could be a sewer leakage. Also, dirty or discolored water coming out of your tap could indicate that there’s possible rust or corrosion in your pipes which is usually due to them being too old.
Cracks on the walls or foundation could be alarming and they are one of the main indications of damaged pipes or the ones that haven’t been repaired for a long time.
Does it take longer than usual for the water to drain when you fill a sink or flush the toilet? Sluggish drains could also be a symptom of damaged pipes. You should also note that the chemicals that are used when blockages are unclogged aren’t good for cast iron pipes as they contain corroding substances.
Lawn or Pavement Indentations
Pools can be formed on your driveway or lawn when there’s a broken or damaged drain pipe. Overtime, indentations will be formed as those areas will start to sink. If you notice something like this you should contact a professional sewer repairer at the earliest.
A Lawn That Looks Great Even Without Maintenance
Have you noticed vibrant green patches in the middle of your lawn even when the rest is dry and lifeless? As much as we hate the idea of sewage, plants thrive on it. Therefore, if certain parts of your lawn look too good to be true, you might want to look into the drain pipes underneath your home.
Insect or Rodent infestation
Although an increase in insects or rodents might not make you think of damaged pipes underneath your home, they could be a sign that there are cracks somewhere in the drain pipes that are allowing the culprits into your home. If you are tired of calling the pest control companies time and again just to see that the problem never gets solved, you might want to look into the drain pipes in your sewer line.
This is another obvious indication that if there are sewage puddles anywhere on your property, you have a critical issue going on in the drain pipes and a sewer professional should be contacted right away.

A few days back, the lid of my sewer pit got loose, and some odd odor started wafting out. I tried several measures of my own to seal the lid shut, but none of them worked. I called Master Waterproofing, they came the next day, and fixed a new lid. The work was clean and quick. Job well done!
I called the Master Waterproofing to replace my old drain pipes that got blocked, they were very professional and polite, and before the initial work started, the manager himself explained the steps.

My upstairs drain pipe got jammed because of leaves and tree roots. I called, and Mike showed up to look at the drains and estimated the price. The next day, he and crew started working and installed a new PVC. The work was clean and very good. I am very satisfied, and the price was right.
