Replacing the damaged clay sewer line

Clay or terracotta underground sewer pipes are no longer used as clay pipes are more easily broken and it is especially easy for intrusive tree roots to break clay pipe.

clay sewer pipe is made up of smaller pieces of clay pipe sealed together with mortar.   Over the years changes in the ground and the weather shifts can cause holes and cracks in the clay pipe and sometimes a portion of the clay pipe can collapse completely requiring emergency excavation and sewer repair.

Our sewer pipe inspection will show us the nature of the problem with your sewer line and the exact location of the underground broken clay pipe.  We push a video camera through the sewer line and the images allow us to what is happening in your underground pipe so we can provide an accurate diagnosis.

Replacement cost clay sewer pipe line

Replacing a damaged clay pipe usually requires excavation of the underground pipe and replacing the broken portion.  Alternatively, if the clay sewer line is broken and very old sewer line replacement may be more economical in the long run.

Pipe bursting is a trenchless sewer replacement method that can replace the entire sewer line without excavation.  Existing openings to the sewer line are used to run a steel head through the clay pipe bursting it into pieces in the soil while running a new sewer line behind it to replace the broken line.

A sewer inspection is needed to determine which sewer repair method is most cost effective for your situation.

No-Dig repair – replacement 

No-Dig repair/replacement underground clay pipe

Very often when we are dealing with replacing an entire old clay sewer line with a new sewer line excavation of the old collapsed sewer pipe is needed and we install a new sewer line.

Depending on the problem with the old clay pipe sewer line, often the cheapest and most effective way to fix the broken sewer pipe is to use a no dig method for replacement of the underground pipe.

Pipe bursting is a great sewer replacement method for an old clay pipe that needs to be replaced.  This method uses a steel cable to push a large cone shape head through the old sewer line which  breaks the clay pipe apart underground while at the same time pulling into place a replacement sewer line made of high-density polyethylene pipe (HDPE).

The newly installed pipe should last for at least 50 years and is more sturdy than clay pipe against many nj sewer line problems like pipe cracking, pipe corrosion and tree root growth.
