Columbus Sewer & Water Line Excavation

We Work to Get the Job Done as Quickly & Mess-Free as Possible

If your property has flooding, a lack of water, or a sewer backup, chances are you have a malfunctioning sewer or water line. We can perform a sewer line inspection using a camera to uncover the root of the problem and determine if simple drain cleaning will fix the problem or if excavation is required. Rest assured that our experts will only begin excavation once we’re positive that it’s the only effective solution available.

Sewer Line Problems that Typically Require Excavation

Because sewer and water lines mostly exist beneath your property, they are more difficult to reach without excavation. Therefore, when you need replacement or installation, plumbers have no choice but to excavate to reach the subsurface of your property.

Common water and sewer line problems that typically result in excavation:

  • Your pipes are made from off-grade pipe material
  • You have invasive tree roots that cause complete obstruction or damage to a pipe
  • Your pipes have leaking joints that result in raw sewage flowing into your yard or property’s soil
  • Your pipes have corroded to such a degree that they cannot be relined or repaired through other noninvasive measures
  • You have broken or collapsed pipes
  • You have bellied pipes
  • You have blockages to the main sewer line or blockages that restrict any water flow

At The Rooter Works Plumbing and Drains, all of our plumbers are trained, certified, and insured to operate any heavy machinery necessary to complete your excavation needs.

When Is Excavation Required for Pipe Repairs & Replacements?

Sometimes, your entire sewer or water line needs to be replaced or you want to install new piping. To do this, we must carefully dig up your existing sewer or water line or create a new path for new pipe installation. However, the amount of digging necessary depends on the scope of your pipe replacement or installation.

For example, severe line breaks and complete pipe collapses require more digging than partial line repairs or replacements.

Additionally, how deep our plumbers must dig depends on how deep your property’s original line was laid. Our plumbers might be able to rely on manual digging for smaller excavation projects; however, large-scale excavation services require proper equipment, such as mini excavators, backhoes, or other machinery.
