What causes sewer line problems?

Some of the chemicals that are found in your soil can actually deteriorate your line. However, this is not the only reason for a damaged sewer line. Severely clogged drains is another common reason that sewer lines can burst open. As more and more harmful items accumulate in your system it can cause water pressure to build up until you have a serious problem on your hands.

Aside from a buildup of debris in your system, nearby tree roots can also break into your sewer line in search of a readily available water source. It is important to know where your lines are located so you can keep major gardening and construction projects out of their reach. Sewer lines can also collapse if the ground shifts for any reason, and from there you will need our expert replacement services to correct this serious issue.

What are some signs that your system is in need of repairs?

Sometimes a clog in your drain is closer to the surface and can be removed fairly quickly, but in some cases it can be deep within your system and could mean that your sewer line is in need of professional assistance. As more and more drains in your home start to experience clogs, know that a sewage backup is right around the corner.

If you hear a bubbling sound when the water drains from your sink or after you flush the toilet or actually begin to smell sewage in or around your property it is time to have your system inspected. Our professionals can determine the cause and severity of your sewer line issue and come up with the most effective solution.

What are professional methods of repair?

If it is a simple clog that is causing the problem an auger or snake can be used to remove it. However, if a severe obstruction is further down in the system we can bring out hydrojetting equipment that uses a highly pressurized stream of water to remove virtually any type of debris from your sewer line, including tree roots.

Our professionals can also do pipe lining, where any cracks are filled in with an epoxy coating. When dealing with a severely damaged section we may need to expose and replace it and then proceed to seal it with that same coating so future problems can be avoided.

How can you prevent problems in the future?

  • Be aware of what you can and cannot put down your sink, shower, and tub drains, as well as your toilet.

  • Use screens for all of the drains in your home or building.

  • Schedule regular sewer line inspections to catch any problems early on.

  • Never plant trees anywhere near your sewer lines.

  • Do not perform large construction projects in your yard without being aware of where your sewer lines are located.
