How Drain Tunneling Works
Using a high-pressure water jet and a vacuum truck, we loosen and remove the soil from around the damaged or broken pipes under the slab for replacement. The resulting void allows our plumbers to gain easy access and perform plumbing repairs quickly, safely, and efficiently. We then secure the new drain pipes to the slab structure before replacing the void with soil to maintain the slab’s structural integrity.
Reasons for Needing a Tunnel
If you have an old home in Southwest Florida, chances are you have cast iron sewer pipes. Over time, cast iron will start to wear down and rot, allowing dirt and mud to get in and clog up the line. This will cause your sinks, toilets, tubs, and other water-using appliances such as your washing machine to back up into your home.
Drain tunneling may also be needed when there’s a break or belly in the line. Sewer line bellies are low spots or sags that interfere with the normal flow through the pipe. Breaks and bellies can happen over time - if tree roots enter the pipe, or if you have poorly installed plumbing.
