Typical sewer problems

Problems with your sewer line can be indicated by slow running drains, sewage backups in drains, or gurgling sounds. The smell of sewage in your yard, or standing pools of water not caused by rain, can also be a sign that your sewer line is failing. Our professional servicemen can help to diagnose what’s wrong with your sewer line and offer solutions that fit your needs.

Slow running drains are often caused by debris or roots in the sewer line. Over time, warm air inside the sewer lines causes moisture to form on the outside. Roots are attracted to this water and then find small openings in the pipe wall and joints to enter the sewer line. As the roots grow into the line, they restrict the flow of water. Solid debris is also caught in the roots, and in bends or depressions in the pipes, and reduces the flow.

Roots entering the sewer line can cause leaking, but it can also be caused by cracked or burst pipes. Extreme temperature changes can cause shifts in the ground that will break pipes. Pipes can fail from weakness caused by old age or corrosion as well.

You have options!

Several options are available to repair blocked and leaking sewer lines. Accurate diagnosis of the problem by our technicians is the first step in determining which repair solution is best for you. Some of the repair options may include:

  • Traditional repair methods – In some situations it is simplest to dig a trench to expose the sewer line for replacement or repair. In areas where digging equipment such as backhoes have easy access, and digging the trench will not cause damage, this may be the best option.

  • Pipe relining method – An epoxy lining is formed within the existing sewer line that seals leaks and prevents corrosion damage in the future. Pipe relining usually doesn’t require digging to gain access to the sewer line.
