If there’s one type of plumbing that needs immediate professional work, it’s sewer line repair. Many plumbing issues can lead to sewage problems, and it goes without saying that these are the worst type you can deal with. The scariest part is sewer water isn’t always off-color. This can trick you into thinking you’re dealing with harmless regular water, which may lead you into DIYing potentially contaminated water and put your health at risk.
Luckily, the Plumbing Squad uses plumbing techniques and technology that’ll keep you safe from these issues completely.
Nobody likes the idea of digging up their yard and creating a mess just to fix their plumbing. In these situations, the Plumbing Squad has an optional method of drilling holes into the ground to assess the problem, and attempting to resolve things with minimal interaction.
Naturally, this is preferable to digging large trenches around your home while trying to fix a nasty sewage line problem. So if possible, we can take this route and save your outdoor area from a messy outcome.
In this section you will find some of the most frequently asked questions we hear about our pipe restoration & sewer line repair service.
It’s important to note the following signs your sewer line is backing up. Otherwise, a smelly problem could be inbound.
The first thing to look for are slow draining sinks. If you see more than one sink that drains slowly in your home, it’s probably related to the main sewer line. You’ll also want to note if you’re constantly needing to plunge toilets. A single plunge is fine, but multiple? The sewer line may be to blame. Finally, if you ever smell a sewage-like odor from your drains, you’ve likely got a sewer line problem that MUST be attended to.
If you see any of these at all, the smart thing to do would be to get a professional plumber there asap.
You’ll have to double check to be sure, but typically, most insurances don’t cover sewer line repair when it comes to wear and tear over time. So for the most part, the only thing you can do is make sure to conduct some kind of semi-annual or annual maintenance with a professional plumber, as this will ensure you don't get caught in a financial predicament with your sewer lines.
Any number of factors can affect how often this should be done. But the best way to think of it is like this - is it ever worth dealing with sewage water using your own hands? No way. If you want to be safe, consider getting sewer line cleaning and maintenance done at least every year. You can’t go wrong with that amount, especially when it comes to the safety and health of you and your family.
First, take a second and see if there’s any mess being made. If things are getting dirty, call a plumber immediately. Then check and see if other drains are affected as well. If others aren’t working, too, you’ve got a main drain issue that a professional needs to deal with. And you’ll also want to consider how much traffic a clogged drain sees. For example, if it’s a bathroom sink near the living room and your whole family uses it, you should get it fixed asap. But if it's a basement sink drain that nobody ever uses, you’ve got a little time and can test out your DIY options if you have the experience.
Basically, only professional plumbers have access to the machinery required to complete a sewer drain job. Specifically, the heavy-duty machines we use have long steel cables, and they have a blade at the tip as well. We send these cables through plumbing and use the blade to break up any debris and obstructions along the way. It even works on tree roots! It’s not easy to get a hand on this type of equipment, and you need training to use it anyway. But for us professional plumbers, we use this tool very effectively and fix many sewer line related problems on a daily basis.
There are occasions where it’s hard to detect exactly what the source of a plumbing problem is. For example, if repeated plumbings fail to unclog a drain, or if our specialized equipment doesn’t seem to work (like the heavy duty machine mentioned above), we’ll opt to use a video camera to send into The Plumbing so we can find out what is causing the problem. Basically, we bust this tool out if the standard procedure doesn't seem to be working very well. But in most instances, our training, knowledge, and experience can pinpoint most plumbing problems accurately, and we can create an effective action plan to fix things just as fast.
