Pipe Repair & Replacement

Team Andreas is highly skilled at diagnosing and repairing a wide array of plumbing problems. Our pipe repair services aim to correct the following:

  • Broken pipes: Shifting or settling soil and the freeze/thaw cycle can cause pipes to crack, collapse, or become misaligned.
  • Pipe blockages: A buildup of grease and other debris can prohibit water flow and lead to backups.
  • Corrosion: Some pipe materials are susceptible to rust. If a pipe corrodes from the inside out, its circumference gradually shrinks, restricting water flow in the process.
  • Leaky joints: Poorly connected plumbing joints can leak wastewater into the soil, causing a safety hazard in your yard.
  • Bellied pipes: If the ground sinks around a pipe, a valley can form where debris collects and eventually blocks the pipe.
  • Tree root intrusion: Roots from large trees are notorious for getting into underground pipes. Over the years, the intrusion can eventually block the pipe completely.

If a repair isn’t enough to get your pipes flowing, we can replace them entirely. Pipe replacement may be needed in older homes with unsafe plumbing materials or severely damaged pipes. We’ll make the process as quick and affordable as possible so you can return to your busy schedule.

Sewer Line Repair & Replacement

While they’re built for durability and effectiveness, sewer lines are subject to a great deal of wear and tear. They may eventually leak, break, or become clogged. Thankfully, we may be able to repair your sewer line and restore it to full working order.

Even if you need a sewer line replacement, the process doesn’t have to involve digging up your yard. This is the traditional method, but trenchless technology has come a long way in the last 10 to 15 years. We can now repair or replace your sewer line via two small access holes.

This process involves cleaning out the sewer line and filling it with an inflatable, epoxy-filled tube. The epoxy hardens inside the old pipe, effectively replacing it without disrupting your landscape with unsightly trenches.

Pipe Repair FAQs

Can I patch my own pipes?

There are kits that allow you to patch your own pipes, but the repair will be temporary, and the pipe will likely start leaking again. Even a small leak can cause extensive water damage and structural problems with time, so it’s best to have any pipe leak repaired promptly by a professional plumber. With Team Andreas, you can expect fast, cost-effective repairs that will stand the test of time.

What pipes last the longest?

For water supply lines, copper pipes typically last the longest, followed by PVC and PEX. Galvanized steel pipes can last for decades but are prone to corrosion. For drain and sewer lines, cast iron pipes last the longest, followed by ABS and PVC. To learn which type of pipe is best for your application, talk to our plumbing experts at Andreas today.

How long do plumbing pipes last?

Copper and galvanized steel water lines can last over 80 years under ideal conditions, though corrosion may shorten their service life. PVC piping can last up to 45 years. Cast iron sewer lines can last up to 100 years, while ABS or PVC can last 45 years. To learn if it’s time to replace the pipes in your Pennsylvania home, talk to our team at Andreas Plumbing.

Should I repair or replace my plumbing pipes?

If you have only one or two small leaks and your plumbing is no more than a few decades old, plumbing repairs will likely be the most cost-effective option to address problems. If your pipes are older than a few decades, are heavily corroded, have multiple leaks, or have extensive damage, a pipe replacement may provide better long-term reliability with fewer problems.
