Sewer Line Repair Services in Southern California

A broken sewer line can cause serious problems if ignored. While it can be difficult to fix, prompt service can prevent tens of thousands of dollars in more damage. NexGen specializes in several methods of repairing sewer lines. We can prevent a hidden problem from causing a backup and flood of toxic sewage inside your home. Available 24/7 for emergencies, we employ fully licensed and insured technicians who can fix a broken sewer line quickly, no matter the size or scope of the damage.

Signs of a Broken Sewer Line

Sewer lines are hidden out of sight, but a broken line can have dire consequences. It can cause a water backup and major property damage. Waste can also have chemicals and organic pathogens that can be dangerous to your health. Therefore, call NexGen if you notice ominous signs of trouble such as:

  • Slow Drains: One slow drain is often caused by an issue near that fixture. However, if two or more plumbing fixtures are slow, you may have a clogged or broken sewer line. Call a sewer repair professional if multiple drains are affected or frequently back up.
  • Odors: The smell of sewage won’t come from anywhere else but your sewer line. If strange smells come from your drains, toxic sewer gas may be present; it’s a health hazard and extremely flammable.
  • Mold: Broken sewer lines release moisture and nutrients that allow mold to grow. It can spread rapidly if water has infiltrated floor, wall, and ceiling materials. The effects of mold include property damage, allergic reactions, and long-term medical conditions.
  • Foundation Cracks: A persistent leak under the slab can cause the foundation to settle and crack. In extreme cases, sinkholes can form under your home and compromise its structural integrity. Call NexGen if you find a foundation crack; we’ll determine if sewer line repair is needed.

Other signs of a broken sewer line include depressions or soggy spots on your lawn; unusual areas of lush, green grass; and insect and rodent infestations. Our team is adept at tracing all these signs to the suspect sewer pipe.

Ways to Fix a Broken Pipe

Sewer pipes are highly durable but not indestructible. They can weaken with age, while chemical drain cleaners can damage pipe materials. Parking cars on the ground above the line can put pressure on it, while earthquakes and ground shifting can break or disconnect sewer lines. Fortunately, we employ effective methods to fix a broken sewer line and get your plumbing working again:

  • Trenching: The most direct way to access a sewer line is to dig a trench. With the old line exposed, our plumbers find the damaged section and replace it. A sewer line inspection camera is run through the pipe to ensure it’s properly connected. If so, the technician will replace the dirt and grass they dug up.
  • Trenchless: Digging up your lawn isn’t the only way to fix a broken sewer line. Trenchless sewer line repair involves digging one hole to access it. Our plumber will then prepare an epoxy resin, place it in a cloth pipe liner, and insert it into the pipe using a specialized machine. Once the liner is removed, the epoxy cures within 1 to 2 hours and forms a solid wall within the pipe.
  • Pipe Bursting: Sewer line pipe bursting avoids trenching. Our technicians dig a single access hole and use a specialized drilling system to push a new pipe through the old one, breaking it apart. The remnants of the old sewer pipe remain underground but the newly installed line will function normally. Afterward, the plumber fills a single hole instead of your entire yard.

Amazing Reviews From Our Loved Clients

Not only did his team deliver promptly and on time, they were friendly and left with a professional install of my new A/C unit. I can’t mention the AWESOME price I got, but needless to say they can beat any deal, and will give you the fastest 1st-rate service available.

Yesterday I had NexGen install a new furnace and a/c system to replace my 30-year-old system. Their representative Jeff met with me the day before to go over the system that would work best for my home, and presented me with a price I couldn’t turn down. Incidentally, NexGen’s price was over $3,000 cheaper than all other competitors.

My call was promptly returned by Jeff and an appointment was scheduled for the next day. Jeff presented an offer that I couldn’t refuse! A crew was available that day and came, saw and conquered. I had A/C that evening at a very fair price. Highly recommend NexGen.
