A broken sewer line may be one of the most stressful plumbing problems that a person can encounter. Not only is there the danger of waste water and sewage backing up into the home, but also the danger of damage to the home and the yard because of a leaking sewer line. The filth, danger of disease, and sheer inconvenience of a broken sewer line can make it the most challenging problem for homeowners since broken sewer lines render the home’s entire plumbing system unusable. These facts combine to make a broken sewer line something of an emergency for most homeowners. If your sewer line has broken, you want it fixed immediately, but you also want to make sure that you are getting a fair price and reliable service. In addition, you want to minimize the mess and additional damage that so commonly accompany a sewer line repair.
At AME Plumbing, our plumbers are experienced, reliable and honest. We know the common causes of broken sewer lines, including broken or corroded pipes, leaking seals, bellied pipes (when a section of pipe sinks below the other pipes), and even significant blockages that cannot be cleared through traditional drain-clearing methods.

The gorgeous trees that make our New Jersey autumns so beautiful can wreak havoc on sewer lines, especially in older homes.

Sewer Line Repair Service
Furthermore, in addition to traditional trench-based repair, we also offer two alternates that make less mess and are generally less expensive: pipe relining and pipe bursting. In pipe relining, we use the outline of the old pipe as a mold for a new pipe, creating a seamless, joint-less pipe within a pipe. With pipe bursting, we can offer a trenchless repair for even older cast iron, clay, or terra cotta lines. With pipe bursting, we make access holes on either end of a damaged pipe, burst the pipe and lay replacement pipe, all without digging a trench. This can be critical in area where digging would cause property damage; such as under a slab or parking lot, or in historic areas. It is also useful when you want to upsize the pipe’s diameter, because the pipe can be replaced with wider pipe.
