Many Regina homeowners dread hearing the words "sewer replacement" come from the mouths of plumbers. If you've been unlucky enough to experience issues with main lines in the past, you know the inconvenience and stress that can come with those words. Sadly, with winter coming to an end, the season of water worries is quickly approaching.
Most homeowners know that when an underground pipe bursting leads to repair needs, the cost often comes from three places:
Traditional repair techniques for buried pipes and lines involve digging up portions of your property to find and replace the hidden line. This process can take days, cost plenty, and leave your yard looking more like a battlefield than an oasis.
At Mr. Rooter, our local Regina plumbers know a thing or two about sewage pipes, the problems they cause, and the tell-tale signs of leaks and clogs that lead to disaster. The most important thing we know is that you don't have to worry as much about a buried pipe bursting. Thanks to new trenchless technology, underground line repair is now easier than ever.
What Is A Sewer Line?
You might be wondering what a sewer line is and why exactly you should know. Often called the mainline, this is the pipe responsible for removing all the waste from your home's sinks, toilets, tubs, and other drains. All that waste gets sent along plumbing pipes to one route out of your home and into Regina's municipal sewage system.
This important system is buried and normally it can't be reached without digging. That underground location also makes it vulnerable to damage from roots, shifting earth, and changes in temperature during winter and spring. If water freezes in the mainline, the expanding ice can cause serious damage that isn't discovered until it melts again in the spring. A damaged line can lead to property damage like flooded basements, not to mention health issues that come from exposure to the bacteria in sewage backups.
What Are The Signs of A Damaged Main Sewer Line?
There are several important signs to be aware of when it comes to sewer lines:
- Bad odors
- Overflowing toilets
- Slow drains
- Low water pressure
- Wet spots or sunken spots in your yard
- Sewage in your tub or shower

What Is Trenchless Technology?
Trenchless technology is a technical term used in the plumbing industry to refer to methods for non-invasive repair techniques for underground lines. We call this trenchless sewer line replacement. Trenchless technology itself has a broad range of applications across many industries.
