It might look an expensive and not justified service. However, on the contrary, it may save you much more. Where there was a problem once, it may return (and sewer backups are not different), like tree roots tend to grow into the sewer pipes in search of water and nutrients; or faulty sewer pipe might be causing problems every time it got junked if the accumulations tend to build-up inside of the pipes) Usually, older homes have old clay pipes that were used before in construction. Nowadays, the building code changed, and PVC pipes are considered more durable and efficient for residential sewer pipes. Clay pipes' useful life is about 50-60 years, while PVC pipes would serve over 100 years, so it is an excellent upgrade for your property that would make a return for you in the long run.
Many factors should be taken into consideration, and proper assessment performed before concluding the reason of particular drain problem.
ROOTERWORX uses the trenchless technology full drain/sewer line installation. Pipe bursting is a trenchless technology of installation of drain/sewer pipe. The trenchless method allows the installation/replacement of the drain/sewer without traditional trench excavation. The trenchless method, aka pipe bursting, needs two pits to get excavated, one is insertion pit, and the other is receiving pit.
Full sewer/drain replacement is the right solution when there is a problematic drain with several problems or old pipes that have accumulations, got cracks, or the pipe is broken.
