How Do I Know That I Need Sewer Repair?

Sewer repair is needed when your sewer is backed up or starts leaking. This is probably one of the most unpleasant plumbing situations you can encounter, and since this is a much more complicated problem to solve than something like faucet repair, you need qualified plumbing technicians that know what they are doing. Depending on the condition of your sewer pipe, a section of sewer may have to be replaced. To determine if you need to replace a section of sewer pipe, or the entire sewer pipe, a video inspection is performed to assess the condition of your sewer.

Video Inspection

Sewer repair, when performed correctly, always involves a video inspection. A camera is inserted into the interior of the sewer pipe and sends back live video of the condition of your sewer line, thus revealing any blockages. Our video inspection equipment features 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 tell if you have root intrusion, separated pipes, offset pipe joints, or a broken pipe. Part of the sewer repair may require draining the pipe to see the inside.

Common Sewer Problems

Sewer repair is necessary to remedy certain common problems in older lines. Generally speaking, unless there is some kind of accident, sewer line damage happens over time. One of the main causes of sewer line damage is roots growing through cracked lines. One small crack in an old sewer line will become the target for roots to take hold and block or destroy the pipe. You can use sewer line cleaning to remove roots but this is only a temporary solution. If you do have older pipes, sewer line cleaning may actually destroy them. In this case, you will be looking at sewer installation with other materials like plastic.
