A clogged drain is usually considered a minor problem as it is easy to unclog a drain using a professional service or even strong chemicals. However, there is one issue that doesn’t get fixed easily and causes many problems unless it is resolved quickly. This problem is a cracked drain pipe and we are here to provide information about it. Throughout this article, we will go through what needs to be done if you have a cracked drain pipe, three common ways of repairing it, and how New Era Plumbing & Septic can help.


What Needs To Be Done If You Have a Cracked Drain Pipe?

The first thing that a homeowner must do if they suspect a cracked pipe is to ensure that the location of the crack is in that spot only. In addition, they must assess the extent of the crack to understand the approaches that may be needed to take on it. If water is coming from it significantly and the situation seems like it needs to be stopped immediately, close the main water shutoff valve to prevent incoming water from damaging your house. If you would like the problem fixed as soon as possible, call a professional plumber to get detailed information on what would need to be done, how soon they could fix it, and the estimates for their services.

How To Repair A Cracked Drain Pipe?

There are three common ways of fixing a cracked pipe: patching, lining, and completely replacing it. In this section, let’s discuss each of them in detail.

  • Patching A Crack: Patching a crack is easy but requires careful work. Any step that is not properly performed will result in the crack again. The plumbers close the water shutoff valve and ensure the pipe is dry and clean. They then use things like silicone to patch up the crack.
  • Lining a Crack: Lining a crack is more complex and not very commonly used. The whole process involves relining the pipes using ropes and drain cameras and inflating an air-filled bladder against the pipe. Call New Era Plumbing & Septic to get your pipe repair today.
  • Replacing The Pipe: Of the three repair methods listed in this section, one of the most effective ways of fixing it is completely replacing the pipe. You can try to find a new pipe that fits the measurements you need, or you can work with a plumbing service that will cut the damaged section of the pipe and create a new pipe with the same measurements for your use.
