A clog in your drain or sewer can make living in your home miserable. Many people attempt to live with smaller clogs, but over time, as the problem becomes worse…the clog can take over the entire house!
The common “drain snake” may take care of some clogs…but is often ineffective to larger clogs and does nothing to address the true cause of clogs. While debris, hair, paper products, and sanitary items can contribute to the problem, there is also another factor to consider: build-up.
Like cholesterol in your arteries, plumbing “build-up” collects along the inside walls of your pipes, accumulating over time. As it continually grows, it restricts water flow while also snagging other items along the way, and sooner or later, your home will suffer…a heart attack!
Water jetting uses high-pressure water jetting effectively removes both the clog and the build-up that caused it. Completely clear of all obstructions, drains work like new again.
Sewer mains are often located underground, running directly beneath gardens, lawns, driveways, or patios. This makes any needed repairs that much more difficult and labor-intensive. In fact, your yard may need excavation to even access the sewer main. This is not always the case, but if it is, rest assured. We will work as quickly and efficiently as possible to alleviate any inconvenience or expense.
Slip lining may be the perfect sewer repair solution. Commonly referred to as “trenchless”, it is a non-invasive approach to sewer repair in which a new sewer line is installed directly inside the old one. There is no need for excavation. We always consider this trenchless method (whenever possible) saving you time, money, and unnecessary headaches wherever we can.
More often than not, when we encounter a sewer stoppage, we can clear it out with a professional-grade drain snake—dislodging and breaking up a clog. With an easily accessible sewer clean-out, it’s a fairly simple process.
How do you know when your Sewer Main needs to be replaced? Trust the local experts.
With decades of sewer replacement experience under our belts, we have learned that if your main line backs up more than once a year, it is probably worth the time and money to have that line replaced.
If excessive tree roots are causing an ongoing blockage, the pipe often requires replacement. Roots seek moisture wherever they can find it, and what better place for water than in a pipe? Even the tiniest crack in a pipe will invite roots inside. Sewer lines also contain nutrients and oxygen—something trees need to grow— so it creates the perfect combination for roots to thrive and grow and destroy your pipes from the inside out.
A vent stack is an important part of your overall plumbing system, removing sewage from your home, releasing sewer gas, and regulating the air pressure in pipes to allow proper flow. The whole sewage system would not work without it!
While vent stacks are typically pretty maintenance-free, when something does go wrong, it can suddenly cause your home to have an unwanted and disgusting smell. If drains are gurgling or emitting foul gas odors, your vent stack may be the culprit and need repair or replacement.
