Sewer Line Replacement

When your sewer line needs to be replaced, there are two ways we can do it:

Traditional Sewer Line Replacement

The first is the traditional way, which means excavating the old pipe and laying a new pipe in the trench. We then connect the new pipe to the city main (or septic tank), and also to the internal plumbing. After testing everything, we back fill the trench and do a rough grading of the area.

Pipe Bursting Technology

The second way we can replace a sewer pipe is by a system called “pipe bursting.” Rather than dig up the entire sewer line, we only dig two holes: one at each end where the new pipe will be connected. Then, using a special winch with a “bursting head” on it, we can pull a brand new sewer line right through the existing compromised line. This method is preferred where driveways, gardens, decks or other objects could make excavating the line a less desirable option.

Our experienced estimators can help you understand which option makes the most sense in your specific situation. Call now for a free consultation.

Maine Service Area

Our service area is the greater Bangor & Brewer area. We have done sewer line replacement in Bangor, Brewer, Hampden, Orono, Hermon, Holden, and more. If you are not in these towns, contact us to see if you are in our service area.

Excavation Services

If you have ever had a broken water or sewer line, you know the distress that it can cause. Nichols Plumbing has the equipment and the expertise to unearth damaged water or sewer lines, and then make the necessary repairs. We will schedule the job as quickly as possible, and once started, we can often make the repair in the same day (although we may need to return later to grade the area or repair hot top). By having our own earth working equipment, Nichols is able to respond more quickly to your emergency, and give you the peace of mind that the job is done properly and efficiently.
