plumbing repair replacement excavation Charlotte

There are two methods used to remedy many plumbing issues: trenchless pipe repair or traditional excavation. For residents and business owners in Charlotte, trenchless repair options are the preferred choice given the reduced damage to a yard, driveway, or home flooring. At Plumbing Connection, when possible, we use trenchless technology solutions. However, there are some plumbing replacements or repairs  that require  excavation to get the job done right.

Plumbing Connection is the company to trust when it comes to unparalleled excavation services. We cater to the following service areas:

While traditional excavation may be necessary in some situations, know that the expertly trained technicians at Plumbing Connection will not complete a plumbing repair or replacement with this method unless we are absolutely sure it’s the only effective solution available. We will thoroughly explain the excavation repair or replacement process to you, answering any questions or concerns you may have.


When an entire pipeline needs to be replaced or laid, the Plumbing Connection team will carefully dig up the existing water or sewer line or create a new path for a pipe installation. The amount of digging will depend on the project. For severe line breaks or a complete pipe collapse, the scope of work will be larger than for partial line replacements. The depth of the excavation will depend on far beneath the land’s surface the original line was laid. North Carolina has a relatively warm climate and though it is not always the case,  most pipes are laid 4 to 6 feet in the ground.

How the excavation is completed will also depend on the severity of the damage. For small jobs, manual digging may suffice. For large-scale operations, the Plumbing Connection team will utilize sophisticated excavation equipment like mini excavators, backhoes or other machinery.


A variety of plumbing issues in Charlotte and the surrounding communities can require excavation performed by a professional plumber in Charlotte, NC. We at Plumbing Connection are experienced plumbers in Charlotte, NC, and can determine which situations call for which services. When trenchless pipe cleaning, repair, or replacement is not an option, sewer line excavation is considered. In many excavation projects, the expert technicians with Plumbing Connection were dealing with issues such as:

  • Bellied pipes
  • Blockages to the main sewer line or those that restricted water flow
  • Broken or cracked pipes
  • Collapsed pipes
  • Corrosion that will not allow the pipe to be relined or repaired through trenchless solutions
  • Leaking joints that are causing raw sewage to flow into a yard or soil
  • Off-grade pipe material
  • Severely invasive tree roots that have completely blocked or destroyed a pipe
