Kitchen drain lines slowly build up with detergents, soaps, fats and grease. Bathroom drain lines from shower and tubs can build up with hair soap and toothpaste. Basement and utility room drains can be filled with dirt and debris emitting an unpleasant odor.
Nothing can make your holiday planning or entertaining plans come to a halt faster than a backup issue. Call us before an emergency arises!
Because we can use different nozzles and attachments we can cut through the toughest blockages. By varying the water pressure and volume of water we can clean your line to good condition again. This is an efficient, environmentally safe and economical way to clean your drains.
In commercial use such as restaurants, schools, office properties and multi-unit buildings can experience recurring build up in interior lines from sludge, grease, roots, etc. This can lead up to flooding and property damage. Call us for quarterly, semiannual or annual maintenance to avoid interruption of business or costly closure.
We can diagnosis the need for a sewer drain repair by using our in line video inspection camera. The images captured by the camera are transmitted to a device operated by the trained technician. Images record the physical location of the line and its depth from surface so the appropriate repairs can be properly prepared and implemented.
Primary indicators that a repair or replacement is needed:
An excessive amount of roots in line that cannot be cleared by a cable machine
Broken, cracked or collapsed pipe due to shifting soil, frozen ground or settling.
Corrosion of an older pipe that caused pipe to break or collapse
A bellied pipe where a section of the pipe has sunk to the ground, creating a low spot in the line where paper and waste collect causing repeated blockages
Leaking joints where the seals between sections of pipe have broken
One reason whey sewer main repairs can be so expensive is that the sewer main line is entirely under the ground below driveways, lawns, gardens and patios. Your yard may need to be excavated or concrete driveways and sidewalk jackhammered to even access the sewer main. Many times the repair is not the most expensive part of the process at all. The access can be the costly part whole the repair may be just a replacement of a length of pipe or removal of roots.
