Sewer Line Services in the Greater Houston Area

A damaged, clogged, or dislodged sewer line can bring your Houston home’s entire plumbing system to a halt. While simple clogs affecting a single drain might be solvable on your own, sewer line repair is always a job for a professional plumbing service provider.

At ARS/Rescue Rooter, our local plumbing contractors are highly trained and experienced as one of the top sewer line repair companies in Houston. If you’re facing a potential sewer line problem, don’t wait—check out our coupons page for the latest plumbing offers, or call now to schedule an appointment with ARS/Rescue Rooter Houston today!

Clearing Sewer Line Clogs in Houston

Clogs can partially or completely block the flow of water through your sewer line. Sewer line clogs most often form when grease, fat, soap scum, hair, and other debris are flushed down the drain through normal daily use; as these materials build up inside the line, they form a blockage. Alternatively, clogs may form when a larger item, such as a diaper or toy, is flushed down a toilet or drain. Clogs can also occur when tree roots break into your sewer line and grow into the pipe. 

When you call our Houston plumbers to your home, one of the sewer line repair options you’ll have is a sewer line video inspection. Our team will insert a long, flexible cable with a camera attachment down into the line. This allows them to determine whether a clog is blocking the line, and will also let him identify the clog’s location and cause. Clogs that consist of buildup or debris are typically cleared via an auger, which is a cable that has a hooked or pointed end. This cable is inserted into the line and either breaks up or pulls up the clogging material. In some cases, hydro-jetting is used to break up and flush out a clog. Hydro-jetting is best when the clog is a symptom of widespread grease or mineral buildup inside your sewer line, as this technique can clear away all buildup to reduce the risk of any future clogs as well.

Repairing Damaged Houston Sewer Lines

When your sewer line has been damaged by tree roots, collapse, or dislocation, the line itself will not function, even if a clog is cleared away. If your plumber identifies this type of damage using a sewer line camera inspection, the next step is trenchless sewer line repair.

Trenchless Sewer Line Services

Trenchless sewer line repair allows your plumber to replace some or all of your sewer line without digging extensively in your yard. This technique often takes just one to two days and can completely restore the integrity of your sewer line, regardless of the type of damage it has suffered. During trenchless repair of a small section of sewer line, a new lining is pulled through your existing pipe to restore the interior integrity of the drain.

When the entire line requires replacement, your plumber will use a technique that blows out the existing line as a new pipe is pulled through the space to address issues such as dislocations or areas of collapse.

Common Signs of a Sewer Line Issue

Sewer line clogs differ from the average plumbing clog in several ways. Your sewer line is a single drain line responsible for handling all the wastewater from your home. Thus, a clog in this vital plumbing component can bring your entire plumbing system to a standstill, affecting your ability to use water for daily tasks and putting your home at significant risk for backups and water damage.

Here are some signs to watch out for:

Gurgling or Bubbling Toilets

It is often a home’s toilets that show the first signs of a building sewer line clog. Gurgling noises or bubbling in the water inside your toilets’ bowls when using sinks and other appliances are common symptoms of a problem lurking within your sewer line, and should never be ignored, even if they occur only intermittently.

An Unpleasant Smell

When wastewater cannot easily drain via your sewer line, it can become trapped within your home’s plumbing. Even if you don’t notice backups, you may notice a pervasive rotting or raw sewage smell in your home, particularly in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. In some cases, you may also notice this smell outside as well, which indicates that tree roots, or some other issue, have caused your sewer line to leak as well as clog, releasing untreated wastewater into your yard.

Widespread Plumbing Problems

Although your sewer line is a single plumbing drain, it carries the wastewater from every other drain in your home into the Houston area municipal sewer system. When your sewer line is clogged, it will have a widespread effect that can cause every single plumbing appliance and fixture in your home to experience issues such as sluggish drainage, signs of clogging, and even wastewater backups and overflows. While a single problematic appliance is likely an indication of a smaller, more localized clog, if you’ve noticed poor plumbing performance throughout your home, you are likely facing a sewer line clog that will require professional rooter service to address.

Called for an emergency plumbing situation and they responded immediately and were able to show up within an hour of me calling. I was worried about prices because of some other reviews, but the initial diagnosis was free. Jose and Voltan were very nice and professional. Left me with a free estimate to fully fix the problem so I can shop around, but stated if I wanted them to, then they could get started on the fix the next morning if I wanted. Highly recommend. Very professional and nice and were upfront about pricing.
