Proactive Repairs Can Extend The Life Of Your Aging Sewer Lines

Avoid Costly Sewer Repairs with Trenchless Pipe Repair

When was the last time you had your sewer line inspected? If you’re like most people, you haven’t…unless it’s been clogged. But here is the scary truth: one-third of sewer lines around Minnesota are more than 50 years old and reaching a breaking point, according to MN2020, a St. Paul based think tank. Even more shocking: nearly half of St. Paul’s system is 75-125 years old. Across the river in Minneapolis, the average pipe age is between 80 and 100 years old. It’s a disaster waiting to happen.

Signs of Trouble

So how can you tell if you should start looking into your repair options? Here are six of the most common signs of sewer trouble:

  • A spike in your water bill

  • Gurgling noises from toilets

  • Lower water pressure

  • Slow-draining sinks and showers

  • Foul or musky odors

  • Backed up sewage

If you experience any of these issues, it might be time to have a camera inspection done by (I recommend the guys at Matt’s Plumbing Solutions). A camera (video) inspection can pinpoint the exact areas of your pipe that need to be fixed, and it is an excellent way to find out the type of repair needed.

If a camera inspection shows your sewer line is failing, don’t despair – there is an alternative to traditional “dig-and-replace” method. Trenchless pipe repair is a new method of “no dig” sewer replacement that can save you time, hassle and money.

Perma-Liner Trenchless Pipe Repair

Perma-Liner trenchless pipe repair eliminates the need to excavate and replace old sewer lines. Instead the old pipe is lined, creating a brand new pipe within the old one. Perma-Liner pipe lining carries a 50-year guarantee, so you can be confident that your sewer line will be problem-free for years to come.


Perma-Liner trenchless pipe repair can:

  • Repair cracked or broken pipes without excavation

  • Eliminate roots and other infiltrations

  • Bridge missing pipe sections

Dealing with minor issues now can prevent major repairs later, and nobody wants to deal with the major hassle that can occur when a sewer line clogs or breaks. Making sure that the lines are inspected and replaced as needed will prevent expensive problems from occurring in the future. And when it’s time to call in the professionals, call Matt’s Plumbing Solutions. They promise a fair, honest and accurate quote, backed by Guaranteed Service.
