When Do You Need to Fix an Underground Drain Pipe?
You should consider fixing an underground drain pipe if you notice signs like mold growth, pest infestation, sewage backups, foundation cracks, sinkholes, unusually lush grass areas, or septic tank backup in your yard. These signs often indicate a broken drain pipe. Regular plumbing inspections can also help identify issues before they escalate. For more details, visit J Blanton Plumbing's guide.
How Do Professionals Fix Underground Drain Pipes?
Professionals often use trenchless repair methods for underground drain pipes, which involve minimal digging. This method includes using a CCTV inspection to locate the damage, followed by inserting a tube and patch liner into the pipe. The liner then hardens, repairing the damage without extensive excavation. Learn more about this process at J Blanton Plumbing.
What Are the Steps in DIY Drain Pipe Repair?
DIY drain pipe repair involves locating the damage, cutting out the broken pipe section, measuring and cutting a new pipe to size, and using rubber couplings to connect the new pipe. Finally, the hole is filled in with dirt or gravel. However, DIY repairs are risky and may not be as effective as professional repairs. For a detailed DIY guide, check J Blanton Plumbing's article.
