A clogged sewer line creates big problems with your plumbing, requiring sewer line repair. If you’ve noticed that your drainage system has started to slow down and perhaps heard a gurgling sound coming from your toilet bowl, now may be the time to act.
Tree roots are usually the prime suspect when it comes to sewer-line damage, with thousands of feet of roots constantly seeking moisture and often finding it in your sewer line. Older, clay tile pipes are most susceptible to invasion, but these roots can penetrate even concrete and PVC pipes.
In addition to root damage, a broken or clogged sewer line can happen in a number of ways. Objects can find their way into the line and become lodged. Extreme temperature changes and general deterioration can cause sewer problems, such as lines buckling or breaking. Ground shifting or improper installation can also lead to misalignment.
Video Sewer Inspection
This process avoids the expense of “exploratory” plumbing or digging up your yard by using a miniature camera to find out exactly what and where the problem is. Video inspection can also confirm the structural condition of your lateral pipes. It can tell you if an auger or high-pressure flush can solve the problem, or if more extensive repairs are necessary.
When you turn on your faucet, you get fresh, clean water at your fingertips. It’s delivered directly to you via a single supply water line from the street, under your property, and into your home.
A water-supply line normally works perfectly for years. But if you notice a sudden drop in water pressure, a discoloration of the water or a recurring wet area in your yard you may have trouble with your water line. In these cases, contact My Plumber as soon as possible to conduct an inspection and resolve the problem quickly before it gets worse.
How to Find a Leak in Your Water Line
An electronic device is often used to determine the exact location of the water line. If necessary, for exact water-line leak detection, the line is charged with nitrogen which helps locate the leak.
There are a variety of reasons why your water line may need servicing. In some instances, tree roots can get into the pipe. Other causes of water-line failure include mineral build up and residue, high water pressure, ground movement, acidic soil conditions, freezing and thawing, plus general deterioration over a long period of time.
Repairing the Leak
In many instances, only a section of the water line needs to be replaced. During water-line repair, the faulty sections of pipe are replaced with thick-walled, high-quality copper piping.
Once installed, the repaired or replaced water line is pressure-tested for leaks. A municipal inspection is usually performed for final job approval. Steps are then taken to restore your property grounds to their original condition.
