Mainline Excavation in the North Shore
Serving Salem, Beverly, Danvers, Peabody, Lynn & Surrounding Areas
When you own an older home, one of the biggest plumbing jobs you might need is a main line excavation and repair. The main line is the line that runs from your home to the municipal line. This pipe was installed as part of your home's original plumbing system when it was constructed and usually runs beneath your yard or driveway.
However, over time, this line can become blocked or damaged. The buildup of sludge and sediment inside the line can cause clogs. At the same time, the pipes can burst due to tree roots and even burrowing animals. And once the line is damaged, water will leak onto your property. Sometimes, you'll see water pooling on the surface, while other times, the soil around the pipe will start to erode.
The Benefit of Mainline Excavation and Repair
It's important to note that though excavation is inconvenient and messy, it's usually a good thing for you, the homeowner. When you upgrade the quality of your main line, your entire property can go up in value because the upgrade ensures the line's health for decades to come.
Sewer Repairs That Do & Do Not Require Excavation
Your home's main line is the one that runs from your home to the primary municipal line and was initially built and installed when your home was first constructed. You will usually find this main line buried underneath your driveway or front yard. If this line is ever damaged or needs to be repaired or unclogged, you'll be required to hire professionals to excavate your property to get to the main line.
Wastewater is carried out of your home and to a treatment facility by your sewer lines. If these lines crack, leak, or break, that will spell dangerous trouble for the homeowner. Although you can opt for a traditional method to fix damaged sewer lines, we recommend using the newer, less-invasive trenchless sewer repair.
