What is a Sewer Lateral Line?

– Your sewer lateral line is the pipe carrying wastewater from your home or business into the main municipal sewer line underground – This underground pipe runs from your home to the street connection called the property line cleanout

– Damage, clogs or breaks in this lateral line will result in backups of sewage into your home

What Causes Sewer Lateral Problems?

SIGNS You Need Sewer Lateral Replacement

Watch for these signs of sewer lateral damage or failure:

1. Drain/Toilet/Tub Backups

Indoor sewage backups usually mean a clog or break somewhere in your lateral line. Backups require immediate sewer repair to prevent contamination or water damage.

2. Slow/Gurgling Drains

Partial obstructions in your lateral can restrict flow, causing all drains to flush or drain slowly. Tree roots or buildup is usually the cause.

3. Standing Water/Sewage

Extreme drain clogs may force wastewater to pool on top of lateral lines just below ground level if unable to flow through. The backup needs cleared ASAP.

4. Unusual Smells

Cracked pipes or bad joints can allow sewer gas odors to leak from damaged areas in your sewer lateral underground.

5. Surface Sinkholes

Soil erosion around cracked/leaky piping causes sinkholes or depressions visible above your sewer lateral.

Trenchless Sewer Repair Options

For sewer line replacement, Pioneer Plumbing Restoration leverages trenchless methods whenever possible in Marine, IL to replace pipes with minimal excavation:

Pipe Bursting Sewer Replacement

Our primary trenchless method is pipe bursting, which uses powerful machinery to split apart your old sewer pipe while simultaneously pulling in a new pipe. This expands the walls of the host pipe.

Key Pipe Bursting Benefits:

  • Minimal Excavation & Yard Disruption
  • Preserves Surrounding Utility Lines – Long-Lasting PVC or HDPE Replacement Pipes
  • Cost-Effective Compared to Digging – Less Risk of Damage to Structures

Pipe bursting allows lateral sewer line replacement through small excavation points, preserving landscaping and hardscaping. This makes it ideal for most residential settings.

Cured-in-Place Pipe Lining

If your lateral line still maintains structural integrity but suffers from root intrusion, cracks or leaks, we may recommend CIPP pipe lining. This equally trenchless repair method involves coating the inside walls of pipes with an epoxy resin to seal damage and prevent further corrosion or leaks.

Cured-in-place pipe lining has benefits of:

  • Less Disruptive than Sewer Pipe Replacement
  • Costs Up to 60% Less than Excavation
  • Extends Lifespan of Exiting Pipes
  • Resists Damage from Roots & Corrosion

If your sewer inspection shows piping too far gone, replacement is required. But for pipe lining may be an alternative sewer restoration solution to consider.

Open-Cut Sewer Excavation

For sewer laterals with extreme damage, a full excavation may be required for proper pipe access and replacement. This involves digging an open trench to remove and renew your sewer lateral.

Reasons We May Need to Dig:

Failed Pipe Bursting: Clay/cast iron too brittle

Deep Blockages: Requires direct pipe access

City Sewer Issues: Roadway/main line fixes needed

Serious Structural Damage: Beyond pipe lining repair

While more disruptive, open-cut sewer replacement has benefits of full visual inspection and no limitations on piping material or size. Excavations are carefully coordinated based on:


– Location of damaged/leaking sections

– Compliant slope and depth requirements

– Proximity to utility lines, structures, trees

– Environmental conditions

For necessary lateral sewer digging, our Marine excavation crews are experts at protecting your property and restoring the landscape once sewer repairs are complete.
