Everything Else

You may have heard the stories before from your family, friends, neighbors or even experience this yourself—your plumbing has backed up, your home smells like sewage. After further investigation, you find the roots from trees in your yard have grown deeper underground to stay warm—and grown through your pipes in the process, reducing water flow and backing up the sewer lines. 

There was a time when something like this required digging up the entire yard to repair the pipes and trim the tree roots. No more! Action Plumbing, Heating & Air uses the best technology possible when resolving problems like this.

Steven Andresen, plumbing manager from Action Plumbing, Heating & Air, described several possibilities for homeowners to fix this problem without the stress. “Trenchless sewer lines offer an alternative to the expensive options of excavating buried pipes and structures in order to repair or replace parts.”  

Steve also described “sliplining” and “pipe bursting,” two processes that require little to no excavating. “Sliplining is the process of installing a smaller pipe into an existing pipe, and pipe bursting is where we replace the piplines by breaking up the current pipe into small pieces while simultaneously pulling through a new pipeline.”

These types of projects can be expensive and time consuming. It is best to call an expert to consult on options available in order to get to the “root” of the problem. Action Plumbing, Heating & Air are experts in both sliplining and pipe bursting, but you may want to be weary of asking them to do standup.
