Our Solutions for a Damaged Sewer Line
When your sewer line becomes damaged or clogged, repairing sewer system backups can be more complicated than the average clog within your home’s plumbing system. These types of blockages are deep underground, making them harder to access without the proper equipment. Sometimes, your sewer line causes a backup because of damage like tree root intrusion. When a small crack forms in your sewer system, the additional water leaking into the soil will cause roots to grow toward the crack. Eventually, the roots will grow into the crack, seeking out the most plentiful source of water. In many cases, the tree roots fill the sewer line, completely obstructing it. These types of heavy-duty obstructions require professional solutions. Some of our state-of-the-art methods for fixing damaged sewer lines include the following:
- Hydro Jetting – We use hydro jetting to blast away the most stubborn blockages. We break up tree roots, grease clumps, and other clogs with high-pressure water jets. This chemical-free process is ideal for undamaged sewer lines with blockages.
- Rooter Work and Drain Cleaning – Some clogs just require professional rooter work and drain cleaning. We can break up the existing clog, identify its source, and give you plumbing maintenance recommendations that will prevent future obstructions.
- Maintenance – The best way to address blocked sewer lines is to prevent them. We have customizable maintenance plans that will help you prevent the accumulation of clogs within your plumbing system.
- Pipe Bursting – If we need to replace a damaged sewer line, pipe bursting is one of the most advanced methods. Without digging any trenches, we use hydraulics to break apart your clay, cast iron, or PVC sewer line and thread new piping in its place. This is a permanent fix to your sewer backup problems.
