Signs Your Sewer Line Needs Repair
Many people do not know that they have a problem with their sewer lines, as many of the symptoms are difficult to spot. Be mindful of slow draining water or inconsistent draining over a period of time—these are usually signs that there has been damage to your sewer line. If you have a basement, a backed-up sewer can result in a pool of waste sitting in your basement.
In addition, problems with your sewer line tend to go unnoticed until you start to hear a strong suction sound in your bathtub or sink. This is a sign that waste water is backing up into your drains.
Once you notice apparent problems with your sewer line, it’s important to call a professional right away and get their opinion on the best course of action. Our technicians will use advanced video inspection to give us a clear view of the problem in your sewer line, so we can determine the proper method of repair.
Common Causes of Sewer Line Problems
One of the most common causes of sewer line problems is the movement of tree roots into your sewer line. Roots are naturally drawn to water and often force their way into a sewer line to find a consistent source of water. When this happens, the organic root matter can eventually block your entire sewer line. Blockages in your line can also be caused by grease build-up, paper products flushed down the toilet, and other materials not fit for your pipes. Drain snakes are often a short-term fix that will require repeated snaking, as the hole produced by the steel cable will only start to close after a few months.
A more effective solution: Our technicians will use video camera to determine the cause of the problem. We can quickly remove the blockage with high-powered hydrojetting to force the debris out. Blockages can be caused by the presence of grease building up in the drain and excessive paper products.
