What Is Drain Excavation?

Sometimes you need more than just a plunger to unclog a drain. If your home’s drain pipes are severely clogged, it can cause extensive damage to your home’s plumbing system, and you may need a drain excavation service.

Drain excavation is a lengthy process that involves digging up old pipes. It should only be done by a professional with the necessary equipment and understanding of the safety risks. Once inspected, the professional will determine whether the pipes need to be repaired or replaced.

Several factors determine if a drain excavation can be performed:

The seriousness & location of the clog  

  • If it’s a branch line versus the main line
  • Tree roots versus collapse

Environmental factors 

  • Fault lines
  • Flood prevention
  • Gas/sewage toxicity
  • Health risks
  • Pest/rodent infestations
  • Soil conditions
  • Structural damage

Pipe materials 

  • ABS: Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene
  • Copper: Usually Type L
  • Galvanized: Often found in older homes
  • PEX: Polyethylene cross-linked
  • PVC: Polyvinyl chloride


  • Antigo Silt Loam is the most prevalent type of soil in southeast Wisconsin. 

We’ll ensure our drain excavation services are fast, economical, and safe.

Signs You Need Drain Excavation in Southeast Wisconsin

Our plumbing professionals at Mr. Holland’s Home Services can help determine if a drain excavation is needed. However, here are some signs to look out for:

  • Slow draining: Water drains slowly if a drain is clogged. If you try to plunge your toilet and the draining goes slow, it might be time to have a plumber take a look.
  • Sinkholes: If there are damaged pipes, it may mean sewage or water is coming from them. Sinkholes can form in your yard if the damaged pipes aren’t repaired or replaced soon enough.
  • Sewer smell: If you notice a sewer smell by the drains and toilets in your home, it could mean something is backed up. It’s best to call a plumber to have them diagnose the issue. 
  • Grass in the yard is growing better in certain areas: If you notice portions of the yard are growing better, it might be because sewage is acting as a fertilizer. It may be nice that the grass is growing well, but it’s bad for the pipes connected to your home. 

Never let expenses prevent you from achieving the health and safety your home and family need. Ask us about our financing options.
