Sewer Repair

Excavation and construction aren’t the only services offered by Dirtworks Excavations and Construction. We include sewer repair, sewer line replacement, and sewer line construction in Great Falls, Montana to address a variety of issues, including:

Shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, and other factors may cause pipes to break, crack, offset, or collapse.

A blockage occurs when grease or a foreign object obstructs or prevents proper flow and/or cleaning of the line.

Corrosion – the pipe has eroded and/or damaged, resulting in line collapses and flow restriction.

Bellied pipe – due to ground or soil conditions, a portion of the pipe has sunk, forming a valley that collects paper and waste.

Leaking joints – the seals between pipes have failed, causing water to leak into the surrounding area.

Tree or shrub roots have infiltrated the sewer pipe, preventing regular cleaning and/or causing harm to the line.

Off-grade pipe – current pipes are made of inferior materials that have corroded or degraded. Our technicians and plumbers are professionally qualified to solve all of your plumbing and drain issues, including sewer line repair and replacement, using cutting-edge equipment and technologies.

Repairing Techniques of the Past To gain access to the area surrounding the damaged portion of the pipe, sewer line repairs are usually done using the “open cut” or “trench” process. To open and refill the work area, a backhoe may be used.

Trenchless Repair

Sewer line replacement would not necessitate the destruction of yards, driveways, or parking lots. Traditional repair approaches cause more harm than trenchless repair. Trenchless Repair is the next step in providing high-quality sewer service with minimal environmental effects.

Bursting Pipes

Where the broken pipe begins and finishes, we drill small access holes. Our hydraulic machine pulls full-sized replacement pipe along the old route and breaks up the weakened pipe at the same time, using your broken sewer line as a reference. The latest pipe has a long life expectancy and is extremely resistant to leaks and root interference.
