Sewer and Water Service Repair

Broken water or sewer pipes can be a huge inconvenience for your family, and traditional repair methods can cause a lot of damage to your yard. In the past, repairing broken pipes required digging up landscaping, driveways, or patios. Getting your lawn fixed after being overly excavated only creates an extra expense for you.

With sewer repair by pipe bursting, Cates Heating and Cooling can replace the damaged sewer line without a big mess or hassle. We can reduce the amount of lawn and landscaping that is disturbed to make needed repairs.

What is Pipe Bursting?

At Cates Heating and Cooling, we use unique technology to access the sewer line from a small hole we dig in the ground. Because we only have to access the line at the foundation or in the basement, we can often dig a much smaller hole that minimizes any mess or damage. While some digging is still involved, it’s nothing compared to those big trenches required in the past.
After we access the sewer line, we use specialized equipment to pull new, high strength HDPE plastic pipe through the old sewer line. In the process, the old line  “bursts” into the surrounding soil and is replaced with new pipe. The new pipe is seamless and will never be affected by tree roots or external forces again.
Here are some reasons to consider Pipe Bursting:
  • Piping that needs to be repaired may run below your home or valuable landscaping.
  • Pipes may be broken or cracked from freezing and thawing cycles.
  • Sewer lines can break because of debris or roots in the soil.
  • Improper initial installation may lead to leaking pipes or frequent blockages.
Sewer repair by pipe bursting is also a lot more efficient than traditional repair methods, so you’ll be able to return to your regular schedule in no time without worrying about the hassle of lengthy traditional repair processes.
