Chesterfield, MO Pipelining/ Trenchless Sewer Repair
While your home is connected to the municipal sewer and water main in your neighborhood, the pipe that connects your house to the main is entirely on your property and you are responsible if it is damaged or corrupt. Sewer pipes don’t just become corrupt or break on their own. The older your home is the more likely your sewer lines are in danger of breaking or becoming corrupt.
Repairing sewer lines can be a nightmare. Sewer line excavation can be incredibly expensive and involves ripping up your yard, landscaping, or concrete and driveways to access the pipe.
Luckily, for homeowners in Chesterfield, MO that need sewer line repairs, Chesterfield Services has a less invasive solution. Trenchless sewer repair services, aka pipelining, are solutions that can solve your sewer problems without digging a trench through your yard.

Common Signs Your Sewer Line Needs Attention
It’s important to know that, when buying a house, the housing inspection will not include the sewer line. You should consider calling an experienced plumber to inspect the sewer line before buying a house if the home is older than 50 years or has a large tree growing in the front yard. While older trees may add natural curb appeal, their roots can often rupture or corrupt a sewer line.
If you’ve lived in your home for a number of years, but you’ve noticed any of the following signs, then you’ll want to talk to Chesterfield Service about inspecting your sewer line.
- Multiple Slow or Clogged Drains: If multiple drains in your home, such as sinks, bathtubs, or toilets, are draining slowly or not draining at all, it could indicate a sewer line clog. One clog is inconvenient, multiple clogs in multiple drains are a cause for concern.
- Gurgling Sounds From Drains: When you flush the toilet or run water down the drains, you may hear gurgling sounds coming from other plumbing fixtures. This could indicate a blockage in the sewer line.
- Foul Odors: If you notice persistent foul odors coming from your drains or in your yard, it could be a sign of a sewer line issue. Sewage is a very distinct and unavoidable odor.
- Water Backups: If your home has a basement or a drain in the floor at the lowest point in your house, and you notice water backing up around it, it could be caused by a sewer problem and property damage.
- Soggy or Sunken Areas in the Yard: If you notice areas in your yard that are constantly soggy or sunken, it could indicate a leaking, broken, or corrupt sewer line underground. If you have a line or an area of grass in your yard that is particularly lush than the rest, this could also indicate a leak.
- Rodent or Insect Infestations: A broken, damaged, or corrupt sewer line can attract rodents or insects looking for a water source or food. If you notice an increase in pests, it may be related to a sewer line issue.
- Foundation Cracks: Sewer lines can be damaged by shifting soil, which can cause foundation cracks. If you notice new cracks in your walls or floors, it’s worth investigating the sewer line.
Pipelining/Trenchless Sewer Repair Services
It used to be that when a sewer line ruptured, the only way to fix it was to excavate and dig a trench around it. However, with the use of new technology, Chesterfield Service can repair your sewer line without destroying your yard.
Sewer Camera Inspection
When you first suspect that something is wrong with your sewer line, the team at Chesterfield Service can see what’s going on with a sewer camera. Our plumbers use a specialized camera that is attached to a long wire that goes into your sewer line and shows the plumbers the issues on a screen. The camera also will create a video for our plumbers and for you at cost. Following the sewer camera inspection, the plumber will recommend what steps to take next.
Pipe bursting is like patching your sewer line. Based on the inspection, we can find the main points where there is damage to your sewer line. We’ll then dig small holes in your property as entry and exit points. Once the holes are dug, we’ll burst the old pipe and replace it with new a pipe. We then heat-weld the new pipe above ground to make solid connections between the pipes that should never go bad.
Although there is some digging involved, pipe bursting is far less intrusive than sewer excavation and pinpoints the damaged areas to make precise repairs.
When there is damage to the sewer line in multiple places, sewer pipelining can be an effective solution. We use a fiberglass lining that runs through the inside of the sewer line and gets pressed and cured against the walls of the existing pipes to create a solid seal. This process is much faster and more accurate than digging a trench to excavate your sewer.
