When is Pipe Replacement Necessary?

Many people feel worried when they notice plumbing problems like weakened water pressure, backups, and leaks because they don't want to go through a stressful ordeal of having their pipes replaced. Traditional methods of replacing pipes were admittedly stressful, but today's technology offers less expensive and less invasive solutions. SLB Pipe Solutions can create a pipe within the pipe as a way of repairing or replacing it — a service called "trenchless pipe repair." We provide trenchless pipe repair in Indianapolis, IN as well as trenchless pipe replacement. How do you know when pipe replacement is necessary?

Extensive Corrosion

A warning sign that your pipes are extensively corroded is rust-colored water. You might also see rust flakes in the water or taste metal when you try drinking the water. It's not safe to drink water from extensively corroded pipes, so contact us for trenchless pipe repair in Indianapolis, IN. We'll inspect your pipes and let you know whether you should choose repair or replacement. Usually, replacement is needed when your pipes have these symptoms since extensively corroded pipes are beyond repair. If there's only minor corrosion, repair might be an option.

When pipes are taken care of, they last a long time. Trenchless sewer repair is a fast, simple process that doesn't tear up your yard.

Old Age

You'll need trenchless sewer replacement in Indianapolis, IN once your pipes are old to prevent serious problems from occurring. When you delay replacing old sewer lines, you may one day have septic waste in your yard, sewer leaks, plumbing backups, or other stressful problems. Clay pipes last around 50 years.

We'll also give you an estimate of how many more years of use you'll get out of them.
