How To Identify a Sewer Problem
Sewer problems can often be easily detected by signs such as slow draining water, complete clogs, and sewage backing up onto the property. However, it is crucial to seek professional assistance immediately if you notice raw sewage backing up into your home. One of the most common causes of sewer backups is tree roots, which can invade the mainline pipes connecting your home to the street, causing partial or complete blockages. Our expert plumbers can utilize sewer rodding and hydro jetting to break up roots and restore proper water flow.
Common Sewer Backup Causes
What is Sewer Rodding?
Sewer rodding, also known as plumbing snaking, is a process of clearing drain clogs and restoring water flow in your plumbing system. Our trained plumbing professionals use flexible rods connected at the ends to guide through the system and unblock any obstructions. This service can be applied to small and large blockages, from kitchen sinks to mainline sewers, and we have specialized rods and equipment for different types of rodding jobs.
Sewer Line Repairs / Replacements
If rodding and hydro jetting are not effective, our plumbing professionals can perform a camera inspection to identify the exact location of the problem, such as cracks, corrosion, or tree roots. If a repair or replacement of the pipe is necessary, we handle all aspects of the job, including digging, dirt removal, and sewer line repairs, with minimal disruption to your property and landscaping.
Digging / Open Cuts & Trenches
If an obstruction can't be rodded or hydro jetted and we've performed a camera inspection then it's time to dig. Our plumbers are always mindful of your property and landscaping. We do our best to minimize the construction and to keep any disruptions to a minimum. We are fully equipped to handle dig jobs, dirt removal, and sewer line repairs. We don't need to bring any third party contractors to complete the work.
How To Prevent Sewer Line Clogs
To avoid future clogs and backups, it is important to be mindful of your landscaping, especially when planting large trees. Choose slower-growing varieties with passive root systems and avoid planting near the mainline. To prevent clogs, do not flush rags, paper towels, personal hygiene products, or other heavy papers down the drain. Additionally, avoid pouring grease, fats, and oils down any of your drains. Avoid using chemical and natural drain cleaners, as they are often ineffective and a waste of money.
