Backed Up Drains Have You Swimming? We Can Help!
How Do I Know That I Need Sewer Repair?
Sewer repair is needed when your sewer is backed up or starts leaking. This is probably one of the most unpleasant plumbing situations you can encounter, and since this is a much more complicated problem to solve than something like faucet repair, you really need qualified technicians that know what they are doing. This is because, depending on the condition of your sewer pipe, a section of sewer may have to be replaced. To determine if you need to replace a section of sewer pipe, or the entire sewer pipe, a video inspection is performed to assess the condition of your sewer.
Sewer repair that is performed correctly requires a video inspection. This is when a camera is inserted into the interior of the sewer pipe and sends back live video of the condition and the blockage in your sewer line. Our video inspection equipment is also equipped with locators to determine the location and depth of the sewer line damage from above ground. This allows for spot repairs if possible. Video inspections can tell if you have root intrusion, separated pipes, offset pipe joints, or a broken pipe. The pipe must be draining to be able to see within it, so that may be part of the sewer repair that we will have to perform.
Common Sewer Problems
Sewer repair is necessary to remedy certain common problems in older lines. Generally speaking, unless there is some kind of accident, sewer line damage happens over time. One of the main causes of sewer line damage is roots that grow through cracked lines. One small crack in an old sewer line will make it the target for a root system to take hold and block or destroy the pipe. You can use sewer line cleaning to remove roots, but this is only a temporary solution if you have older. If you do have older pipes, sewer line cleaning may actually destroy them. In this case, you will be looking at sewer installation with other materials like plastic.
