Why You Have Sewer Line Problems

There are many different causes for sewer line problems. When you call us for main sewer line repair, we'll do a video inspection of your sewer line to determine what is causing your sewer line damage. The most common causes of sewer line problems are:

  • A sewer pipe break or rupture due to corrosion, leaking joints, old age, heavy traffic or construction, erosion, or earthquakes
  • Sagging sewer lines
  • Sewer line damage due to the ground freezing and thawing repeatedly
  • Tree roots that have grown down into the sewer line, causing a clog or breaking the pipes
  • Flushing debris down the toilet, such as paper towels, baby wipes, makeup removing wipes, tampons, and other trash
  • Frequently pouring grease, oil, fats, or paint down the drain
  • A poorly installed or designed sewer line
  • A backup from the municipal sewer line
  • Lack of sewer line maintenance

Our Trenchless Main Sewer Line Repair

We offer advanced sewer line repair solutions that don’t require us to tear up your lawn or demolish walls or flooring. Once we have completed a plumbing video inspection of your sewer line, we can determine which of the following trenchless main sewer line repairs you need:

  • Relining your pipes - We first clean your drains and break up the clog. Then we can use a simple pipe relining process to seal cracks, breaks, and leaks from the inside out. We thread a sleeve through the pipes, and when it hardens, it seals and repairs the pipe.
  • Replacing your pipes - If your pipes are too damaged for cleaning and pipe relining, we can install a new sewer pipe without digging up your yard. We first use hydraulics to break apart the damaged pipe to make room for the new one. Then we seamlessly pull a new sewer pipe in where the old one used to be.

Once we have completed sewer line repairs, we recommend our customers schedule routine sewer line maintenance. Preventive maintenance can reduce your risk of another sewer line breaking or clogging and prevent a sewer system backup. We offer an Advantage Plan that allows our customers to schedule sewer line inspections, drain cleaning, and sewer line repairs.
