The Fort Worth area has a number of old water and sewer piping systems that are on the verge of being replaced. You may have old clay or cast iron drain lines or old galvanized and copper water lines.

One example of a sewer line replacement NCT Plumbing worked on was what started out as a normal sewer drain clogs lead to a sewer line replacement of old clay piping. After years of deteriorating clay sewer piping and root penetration from trees, it was time for a sewer line replacement. There was so much root penetration through the pipes that the sewer machine cable could not be retrieved.

Upon excavation of the old lines, we saw that there were broken pipes and areas where roots would create more issues down the road along with sewer unexpected sewer clogs. This turned into an emergency due to an occupied commercial building and was finished in a timely fashion so there was only one day of downtime for the tenants.

Clay sewer pipes typically last anywhere from 50 to 60 years; after that many years, they start to deteriorate. Over time, the bottom of a horizontal pipe can disappear due to water flow through the pipe, exposing the soil below the pipe. As such, this results in soil erosion that creates voids below the drainage system that can lead to foundation settling of the structure above the piping system.

Clay sewer pipes are prone to root intrusion and leaks. Small tree roots enter loose clay plumbing joints, get bigger and break the clay away as time goes by. As such, this can lead to expensive sewer repairs. Additionally, as clay sewer pipes age, corrosion, calcification and scale build up.

NCT Plumbing has provided repiping services for the Fort Worth region and other cities such as North Richland Hills, Keller, Grapevine, Southlake, Arlington and Bedford are just a few.
