Excavation 101

In recent years, pipe excavation has become less common thanks to the advent of trenchless technology, allowing plumbers like our experts at Red Lily Piping to offer options like pipe bursting. With these methods, we are able to access your current underground lines, laying new piping as we break apart and pull out old lines.

However, when an entire pipeline needs to be replaced, excavation may be the more appropriate choice. This can occur because of a severe break, causing your whole water/sewer line to collapse. Accessing a pipe in this case can be more or less of an intensive process, depending on how deep it is buried. In warmer climates, like here in Southern California, some pipelines may only be buried 18-30 inches. For older properties, however, it is not uncommon for sewer and water lines to be buried as deep as 4-6 feet. The severity of the excavation process also depends on how damaged the given line is. For less severe issues, we may be able to dig up your pipe manually. However, for more significant breaks, we may need to bring in mini-excavators, backhoes or other large machinery.

You may need plumbing excavation if you are dealing with:

  • Bellied pipes
  • Broken/cracked pipes
  • Collapsed pipes
  • Low-grade piping
  • Blockages restricting sewer line flow
  • Corrosion that prevents trenchless repairs/replacements
  • Leaking joints causing raw sewage to seep into your yard
  • Root intrusion completely obstructing your drain/sewer line

Bottom line: if you need excavation, Red Lilly Plumbing has what it takes to make it happen. Our team knows how to take care of clay, cast iron, concrete, and PVC piping, so no matter what material you are dealing with, we will be able to service your lines. We also promise to work as quickly as possible, finishing all digging ASAP to return your property to normal. Even if excavation is not your first choice, it may be the best choice for your home or business, so give us a call to discuss your options.
