What Is The Right Size Pipe For Your Main Sewer Line? (Types And Repairs) - 3


Plastic (PVC and ABS) Pipes

In the early 1970s, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipes became the most popular choice for drain and sewer pipes. Plastic sewer pipes are simple to install, cheap, and easy to transport. They fit together tighter, and tree roots rarely get into the joints.


Another common type of plastic pipe is ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene). These pipes look like regular PVC pipes, except they are black and slightly softer. ABS is stronger than PVC, but they still come with a few drawbacks. For example, ABS pipes are often not permitted by building codes because they used to be made with a recycled plastic resin that polluted the ground. ABS pipes can also warp and deform if they’re exposed to certain temperatures.


How Do You Repair The Main Sewer Line?

There are several ways to repair the main sewer line underneath your home. 

Two of the best solutions include pipe lining and pipe bursting. Pipe lining involves inserting an epoxy-impregnated liner into your old crumbling pipe. Then, the liner is inflated, creating a new pipe directly inside your old one. 

Pipe-bursting is a little different. Instead of inflating a new pipe inside your old one, a brand new pipe is pushed into your old one. Your old pipe is broken apart as the new pipe replaces it.
