Traditional Sewer Repair
During traditional sewer repair, experts use a backhoe to dig a trench they use to access your main sewer line. Technicians locate the sewer line problem at the source and take appropriate and effective action to fix it. Traditional sewer repair is required if large segments of the sewer line need to be replaced entirely. It’s very effective, but your yard will have to be partially dug up.
How Can I Tell If My Sewer Line Is Damaged?
One or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily guarantee a sewer line problem, but if you have them
you should consider having us out to at least perform a thorough inspection.
Sewage Backups: If water or sewage periodically flows back up through your drains, it may be
because there’s a blockage in the main sewer line preventing that sewage from flowing out of your home.
Drain Blockage: If you tend to experience drain blockages frequently, or if several or all of your drains clog simultaneously, it may be because of a blockage or clog in the main sewer line.
Sewer Gas Smell: Damage to the sewer line may cause raw sewage to leak or seep out, flow back upwards through your home’s pipes, or sit stagnant inside your pipes. You may be able to smell the foul-smelling gases generated by this sewage in or around your house.
Slow Draining: When build-up or clogs accumulate on your sewer line’s walls, sewage may have a hard time travelling through it at a normal speed. Slowdown in the sewer line below will eventually slow down your drains, too.
Wet or Soft Spots in Yard: When sewer lines leak, they expel sewage water out into the ground around them. This sewage can permeate the ground and rise, eventually softening the yard or even flooding it.
