What Causes Sewer Line Damage?
Sinks that won’t drain, toilets that won’t flush, and taps that won’t run—if this sounds like your home, you might have a sewer line problem on your hands.
If you want to avoid sewer line damage, here are a few tips:
- Don’t flush anything other than toilet paper. Just because your toilet flushes things away does not mean it’s a replacement for a garbage can. Even flushing facial tissues can cause a sewer line backup.
- Never pour grease or oil down the drain. When disposing of hot oil, pour it into a ceramic cup. Wait for it to cool and solidify, then scrape it into the garbage.
- Maintain your sump pump. The sump pump in your basement is a mechanism that prevents flooding. It carries water away from your building and keeps the area dry. But if the sump pit gets clogged, it can cause a serious issue. A broken sewer line can lead to a rodent/insect infestation and mold growth. It’s the type of problem that you need a professional plumbing company to repair.
Schedule annual sump pump maintenance so that you can prevent a sewer line backup from happening.
How We Can Fix It
If you’ve got a sewer line emergency, we’ve got the tools to fix it. At Master Rooter, we deal with pipes that are:
Based on the needs of your specific repair, we’ll adjust our strategy. We utilize relining techniques as well as pipe bursting. Our two main methods of trenchless pipe repair are:
This technique both repairs your pipes and keeps them strong for years to come. It’s also referred to as lateral pipe lining or cured-in-place piping. We apply a safe epoxy liner to the inside of your pipes. Next, we cure it so that it stays strong, seals cracks, and smooths any rough surfaces. This environmentally-friendly epoxy will make your pipes work very efficiently, as if they’re brand new. Since this method makes use of your existing pipes, you’ll save on the cost of extracting the old ones.
During a sewer line replacement, you have a set of old and broken pipes blocking your path. But by employing our pipe bursting technique, we can safely and carefully break up the old pipes. This is achieved using a hydraulic or pneumatic head. Once they’re removed, we install new pipes of the same size. The result is a seamless, perfectly-matched sewer line replacement.
Using these methods, Master Rooter offers sewer line repairs and replacements that are more affordable, more effective, and less time-consuming than our competitors do.
