Underground Sewer Line Services

The underground water and sewer system at your residential property is essential for the flow of fresh water to your home and wastewater from your home. The pipes must be buried at a specific depth and set at the proper slope in order to function properly. Without the right slope, your property might need a pump system to force wastewater away from your home. The master plumbers at Horn in Thorndale, PA, can perform sewer line replacement, repair and inspection services to ensure that your pipe and pump systems are working as intended. You can review our underground sewer line services below, or talk to one of our experts for more information:

  • Video Sewer Line Inspection
    Inspecting the sewer line involves mounting small cameras over the cables that run through the pipes, which allows us to see and locate any obstructions for cleaning. We can also use detector tools to help us locate sewer lines and determine how deep they’re buried so that we know exactly where to dig for repairs and replacements.
  • Sewer & Drain Clearing
    Our technicians may use hydro jetting or strong water pressure to clear away sewer line obstructions, or we may use special techniques to remove tree roots from pipes.
  • Grinder Pump System Installation
    If your sewer line lacks the gravity to transport wastewater from your home to the sewer main, Horn experts can install a grinder pump to do the work instead.
  • Septic to Public Water Conversions
    When the city extends the public sewer system to your neighborhood, we can switch the septic system connection on your property to the city’s sewer system.
  • Backwater Valve Installation
    A backwater valve prevents sewage from flowing toward your home if there’s a backup or overflow in the sewer system, and we can replace the valve when necessary.
  • Sewer Trap Repair & Installation
    A sewer trap is a component in the main drain line that keeps sewer gases from filling your home, and the Horn team can fix any malfunction or replace the trap.
  • Sewer Main Installation & Repair
    The main sewer line is the piping that channels wastewater from your home to the main sewer system, and we offer sewer main replacement and repair services.
  • Sewer Lateral Installation & Repair
    The sewer lateral line is the pipe that connects your home to the main sewer line, and our master plumbers can perform any necessary repairs or replacements.

Trenchless Sewer Repair

When there’s a problem with your sewer line that can be resolved with repairs, the Horn team will use state-of-the-art boring tools to access the pipes. This trenchless technology allows us to repair the issue without digging up your yard, driveway or sidewalk along the sewer line. Instead, we’ll only have to dig at the start and end points of the pipe. After we repair whatever damage or obstruction is in the way, it’ll be easy for us to fill in the holes so that they aren’t too noticeable. If it turns out that you need a sewer line replacement, our hydraulic equipment can feed new piping into the old sewer line. Then, we’ll use a high-density polyethylene pipe liner to seal the new pipe onto the old one, forming a durable, lasting bond. We always thoroughly inspect our work before we leave your property to ensure that everything meets local regulations in Thorndale, PA.

Do I Need a Sewer Line Replacement?

Since sewer lines are buried under your lawn, you can’t see when they’re cracked or damaged. Fortunately, there are some telltale signs that you may need to call the plumbers at Horn Plumbing & Heating for a sewer line replacement. For example, you might notice soggy spots or smell sewage around your yard if there’s a leak. A leaking sewer line could even form a bump in your lawn. Inside your home, you might notice that the shower, toilet or other fixtures don’t drain properly. Intruding tree roots and severe weather can cause sewer line cracks and breaks. If you notice any signs of a leak, contact us immediately for an inspection.
