When pipes are cracked, Snowbridge is the company to turn to for trenchless pipe repair in Breckenridge, CO, and other pipe restoration solutions. As for how pipes get cracked in the first place, we discuss some of the common reasons why this may happen below.
Years of use can take a toll on underground pipes enough to cause cracks. Even sturdy cast iron pipes can develop cracks because of corrosion and other age-related factors. On a positive note, no-dig, trenchless sewer repair may be recommended if you have older pipes that are cracked but still stable.
Excess Water Pressure
If the water pressure in your underground pipes is too high, they are more likely to develop cracks over time. Water pressure regulators can help minimize water pressure and protect your pipes if this is a problem you are dealing with.
Damage from Tree Roots
Trenchless pipe lining may also be what we suggest if a sewer line is cracked because of tree root intrusions. This can happen as tree roots go in search of underground water sources, especially during the colder months of the year or during hot, dry summers.
Another reason why pipes may become cracked is because of soil shifting. This can happen naturally due to erosion, or it can occur if construction work involving excavation or soil moving is being done near underground pipes.
