Do I Need A Sewer Repair?

Sewer repair is required when your sewer line is clogged or starts leaking. Sewer problems are probably one of the most difficult plumbing scenarios you can experience. To solve these more complicated plumbing problems, you need qualified professional sewer repair technicians that are experienced and know how to solve the problem properly. Depending on the condition of your sewer pipe, you may have to replace a section of the pipe or the entire pipe. To determine if you need to replace a section of sewer pipe, or the entire sewer pipe, a sewer scope inspection is performed to evaluate the condition of your sewer.

Video Camera Inspection

Sewer repair that is performed correctly requires a video inspection. A “sewer scope” is when a camera is inserted into the sewer pipe and sends back a live video of the condition and the location of 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 confirm if you have tree root intrusion, separated pipes, offset pipe joints, or a broken pipe. Using this technology, allows us to identify the problem and give our customers an exact quote for the repair.

Typical Sewer Problems

One of the main causes of sewer line damage is the growth of roots through cracked pipes. The majority of sewer pipe material used is clay pipe. 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. If this were to happen, we can remove the old clay pipe and replace with plastic.
