Does your home suffer from a lack of water pressure? Are there damp spots in your yard? You rely heavily upon the integrity of your water line. It brings potable water from the well or municipal water supply into your home. But if it becomes damaged, whether from tree root penetration or other physical damage, it may need to be replaced. This is disconcerting to most homeowners because they think of the ruin that will befall their brick walkway, patio, or flower garden. While water line replacement does require some excavation, with trenchless technology, the process is largely free of invasive digging. It’s certainly not the horrible picture you have in your mind. That’s good news because if your water line is damaged and needs replacement, it needs to happen now before any further damage can occur. Call Resolve Rooter at 888-973-7658 today for comprehensive Eastern Pennsylvania water line replacement services.
Let’s take a look at how our advanced trenchless technology works.
- Inspection. The first step in the process is figuring out what the problem actually is. Leak detection can be difficult at times, even for experienced professionals, and it’s important to know exactly what the source of the problem before we begin the pipe replacement process.
- Minor excavation. The trenchless process begins with two holes, one on either end of the water line. They are usually not that large, and are, in fact, nothing like a trench. These compact holes allow us to create an access section that can be used to replace the pipe.
- Replacement. If the damage is severe enough to warrant a replacement, and not just a relining, we use these two holes to pull the new pipe through the old one. A cone attached to the head of the pipe breaks open the old, collapsed, or damage piping, and leaves a new one in its wake. Once it reaches the other side, there is a new pipe that can be connected at either end to the other plumbing parts.
Trenchless technology not only reduces invasive trench-digging procedures, but also cuts down on the labor time required to replace your water line. Call Resolve Rooter today if you’re looking for superior Eastern Pennsylvania water line replacement.

This can seriously damage the pipe and cause water flow problems, which can throw off the water pressure within that pipe. Don’t let poor water pressure and damaged pipes go untreated. A water line replacement may be necessary to resolve the problem.

The sewer line in your home is extremely important. You really need to count on its proper operation to keep your home hygienic and convenient. Unfortunately, like any other component of your plumbing system, your sewer line is susceptible to problems and damages. If you are experiencing any issues with your sewer line, call Resolve Rooter immediately. Our New Jersey sewer line experts can handle any issues you may have with your sewer line. Contact us today to schedule service. Here are a few tips about how to handle a problem with roots in your sewer line.
The best way to resolve a problem with tree roots in your sewer line really depends on how much the problem has advanced. Even a very small crack or hole in your pipe will encourage tree roots to grow into it. Eventually, this will lead to more cracks and clogs as pressure is put on your pipe. If the problem is caught early on it is possible for your professional plumber to just clear the roots from the pipe. An auger can be used to cut the roots, and they can then be flushed out of the pipe. Of course, once roots have gotten in, you may have repeat problems.
Chemicals can be used to kill the roots to prevent them from growing back in through the same holes and cracks. If you decide to go this route, be careful. It is possible overdo it and kill the entire tree or bushes connected to those roots. It may make more sense to simply pull up the tree along with its root system. We do offer RootX services here at Resolve Rooter so you can use chemicals with our professional services!
If your pipe has been damaged by this, pipe repair will be necessary to keep roots out of the existing damaged areas. Sometimes a pipe will be too damaged to make this worthwhile. In this case, a sewer line replacement will be necessary. Contact us today to schedule service.
Whatever New Jersey sewer line services you may need, contact Resolve Rooter. Our sewer line pros have the tools and training to handle any problems that you may have. Don’t let tree roots overtake your plumbing system.

The water line in your home is obviously a crucial part of your daily life. Like everything else it can start to develop problems and eventually might need to be replaced. The problem is that your water line is likely buried deep under your property. Call the East Windsor main water line replacement experts at Resolve Rooter if you suspect that you need to replace your water line. We thought it would be a good idea to put together some of the most common signs that your water line needs to be replaced.
Age of Your Water Line
If your water line is old it might be a good idea to start paying attention to it. Older water lines tend to have more problems and so you should be on the lookout for any signs that it’s starting to crack or weaken.
Soggy or Raised Patches of Ground
If you start to notice any soggy patches of ground or if you see any raised patches it could indicate that you have a leak underneath your property. Depending on the soil composition of your home the dirt could actually absorb the water and expand or get soggy and start to sink. Call the East Windsor main water line replacement professionals at Resolve Rooter if this is the case for you. We provide trenchless water line replacement which is much easier and faster than other methods.
Water Pressure Issues
If you’ve noticed a sudden drop in water pressure you may have a water line leak. The water that comes from your utility is pressurized so that it can get to each faucet in your home. If you have a leak in your water line that pressure will escape and you could suffer a decrease in water pressure. This can sometimes mean that you need to replace your water line. The East Windsor main water line replacement experts at Resolve Rooter have years of experience dealing with these types of situations. We provide trenchless water line replacement and can get your new line in quickly.

If you needed a sewer or water line replacement even 10 years ago, it would have required serious excavation, involving severe disruption of the ground above your line, and the inevitable brown line in your manicured lawn that can last about 6 months, while your grass regrows. Today, trenchless technology has changed sewer and water line replacement entirely, making what used to be a slow and involved process into a relatively quick-fix, with little disruption to your beautiful property. If you have any doubts about your sewer or water line, spring is a great time to take advantage of trenchless in order to avoid a serious blockage during the summer heat. If your line has already collapsed or presently leaking, call the Montgomery County trenchless experts at Resolve Rooter today!
In this post, we’d like to take a look at how trenchless sewer and water line replacement works. Instead of digging up the entire length of pipe that requires replacement, the trenchless process begins by digging two small access holes, one on either end of the damaged section. Video camera inspection is typically necessary to assess the damage. This technology offers an unprecedented amount of detail about the interior condition of your sewer or water lines. After inspection, a hydraulic pump apparatus is set up on one of the holes.
If your pipe has a crack, leak, or is missing a large chunk of its surface, then pipe bursting is usually unnecessary. However, if your damaged pipe is collapsed or completely blocked off, then the first step is to clear the pipe. The hydraulic pump pulls a pipe liner fitted with pipe-bursting cone attachment at its head through the length of the pipe. This removes debris and clears the path for the inflation of the bladder inside. As this bladder inflates, it creates an epoxy cast within the pipe that once dried will be a solid replacement for the previously damaged pipeline. It’s an ingenious technology that is a quick, effective, and economical solution.
No matter what type of problem you have with your sewer and water lines, make sure you take advantage of trenchless technology. For Montgomery County trenchless services, call the experts at Resolve Rooter today!

Even the thought of a clogged sewer line is a source of dread and anxiety for many homeowners. After all, it is one of the major plumbing problems that can arise during the course of owning a home, and it tends to have a significant impact on the wastewater system’s ability to dispose of organic waste—in many cases, the use of home plumbing must be suspended until the problem is fixed. One of the most frequent questions we hear about this problem is “What causes a sewer line to clog?” It’s an important one because sewer line clogs can in some cases be prevented. For Bucks County sewer line services, call Resolve Rooter today!
Let’s review some potential causes of sewer line clogs:
- Organic waste. While we don’t often think of where all of our grease, hair, waste, food scraps and wastewater goes, there’s nothing like a sewer line clog to make us cognizant of what we put down our drains. Your drains are designed to handle only certain types of materials. Pouring hot liquid grease down the drain can often lead to accumulations of the substance within the interior of the pipes. This tends to capture other particles as they travel through your sewerage system. Because of its shape and relatively strength, human hair can quickly entangle itself within the sewer line.
- Improper installation. While your water supply system is pressurized, your drainage system operates by careful design and gravity. If your sewer line is not adequately graded, then it can have difficulty rapidly transporting wastewater into your septic tank or municipal waste management system. During periods of increased usage, this can lead to blockages and backflow.
- Root penetration. Don’t underestimate the power of trees. While slow moving, tree roots exert incredible amounts of force and pressure. If your sewer line is in the path of a large root, then it may become penetrated over time. This not only causes leaks, but can also cause the sewer line to collapse, blocking the passage of wastewater.
With the latest developments in video camera inspection, the blockage can be pinpointed. If there is significant damage, your local professional may recommend sewer line replacement using trenchless technology. For Bucks County sewer line services, call Resolve Rooter today!

Are you tired of turning on your faucet and having a dribble of water come out? Low water pressure can be incredibly frustrating. Contact the Morris Plains, NJ water line experts at Resolve Rooter if you’re interested in having your water lines inspected and repaired. We wanted to help out our community so we thought it would be a good idea to put together some of the most common causes of low water pressure.
If your home has hard water all it means is that there are excess minerals in your water. The water that we get from our utility travels to the water treatment plant through many miles of rocks and sediments. Along the way it can pick up a variety of minerals. While the water treatment plant does purify the water and make it safe to drink, those minerals can still remain. Over time, they can build up inside your water line and form a blockage which will lower your water pressure.
Another common cause of low water pressure is a leak. Your water line system is pressurized in order to deliver water into your home. If you have a leak then that pressure is lost and you might not get as much water delivered into your home. Contact the Morris Plains, NJ water line repair plumbers at Resolve Rooter. We can use our advanced equipment to find the leak in your home and fix it fast.
While hard water can clog up your water line, it can also build up in the fixtures themselves. This commonly happens with showerheads and sink faucet. If your shower isn’t delivering as much water as it once did you may need to replace it or clean it out.
For all your Morris Plains, NJ water line repair and replacement needs contact the friendly plumbers at Resolve Rooter.
