- Root in sewer line – The sewer line has been invaded and/or damaged by the shrub or tree roots, preventing the normal cleaning.

Traditional Method of Repairing
Sewer line repairs are typically performed by using the “trench” or “open cut” method in order to gain access to area that surrounds the damaged section of the pipe. In order to open and to refill the work area, backhoe might be used.
Trenchless Method of Repairing
Black Mountain Plumbing uses modern trenchless repair methods ensuring that the replacement of a sewer line does not lead to ruined yards, destroyed parking lots or devastated driveways. The trenchless repairing of sewer lines by Black Mountain Plumbing means that significantly less damage will be caused as compared to the traditional methods of repairing. Trenchless repairs are the next step in the quality sewer maintenance with less impact on the environment.
In pipe bursting process we make very little access holes at the ends of a damaged pipe. We use the broken sewer line as guide and our hydraulic machines pull the full-sized replacement pipe through old path, breaking up the damaged pipe at the same time. This new pipe is very resistant to root intrusion and leaks, and has a long life.
Pipe Relining Process
In relining process, the damaged pipes are repaired by creating a pipe within the pipe in order to restore flow and function. The epoxy relining materials are molded to the inside of existing pipes in order to create smooth inner walls, quite similar to the lining that is found in the food cans.
Usually, pipe relining is performed through the clean-out access of a building and often there is a need of little digging. The process of pipe relining might be used for repairing the holes and cracks in seals, pipes damaged by roots, and for filling in the missing pipes and sealing the joint connections underground, in the roof drain pipes, under concrete and in storm lines. The relined pipes are seamless. They are more durable and all the materials that are used in relining process are non-hazardous.
