Sewer line repair is something that should always be taken very seriously, because when a sewer pipe lining is damaged, it can cause all sorts of different problems. One of the biggest problems that we worry about is having a backup issue. When a sewer line is clogged, it can cause sewage backup to happen throughout your pipes. This means that raw sewage can come back up into your home and out of places like, your shower, sink, and even your toilet. This is the worst way to find out that you need a sewer line repair and can be dangerous to your home as well. Raw sewage contains bacteria that can cause you to be sick and obviously is disgusting to be in your home. At Drain Busters Plumbing and Drain Cleaning, we are dedicated to making sure that your home is not only safe, but that your sewer plumbing is working properly and not causing any other issues with your home. A few common reasons that you might need a sewer repair, would be from:
Common Reasons For Sewer Line Repair
Tree Roots – Tree roots can get inside of sewer lines and develop a blockage that is difficult to see. You may not even know that you have tree roots in any of your lines, until you have a sewer line video inspection done. Once this is done, we will be able to see where the clog is coming from and present you with options that will get rid of the problem and hopefully avoid having to do any kind of main sewer line replacement. A sewer replacement is sometimes the only option if tree roots have destroyed the inside of your system, but there are almost always options so you will not be stranded with no choices.
Blocking – Blockages can happen in your sewer line from a number of things. If you commonly put grease, or food down your sink, it can start to gather together and form a clog. If this happens, it can get stuck in your line and every time something else goes down the drain, it will make the clog bigger. Hair and soap scum can also be a nightmare to your pipes, as they can cause a clog very quickly and if you don’t get all of it out, it will just keep happening again and again. If you end up needing a pipe replacement, a trenchless sewer replacement is an option that we can talk about. trenchless sewer line replacement or trenchless sewer line repair, is done by tunneling underneath the ground, without having to dig large trenches in your yard. It is the most minimal way that we can get to the problem without making a huge mess. A trenchless sewer repair is something that we can talk about when we come out to assess the problem.
Broken Pipes – When a pipe breaks, it can send your whole system into shock. Pipes are meant to last for a long time without having any issues, so when one does arise, it is important to call us right away to correct the problem without causing any more damage. A broken pipe can happen when the pipes freeze at the ground level or there is shifting that has happened from time or water damage. Tree roots can also be a major culprit of a broken pipe. These kinds of problems will require a sewer repair contractor, like myself, to be able to use our experience to make the best decision for the long run of your home.
