Video Sewer Inspection
One of the most common plumbing problems is blockage in the drain or sewer line. Until fairly recently, there was no sure way of determining the cause of the problem short of expensive excavation of the pipes. Fortunately, now you can find the problem a lot easier—and less expensively—with a simple inspection using a sewer-line camera. If you’re experiencing bubbling toilet water, water backing up from your tub or shower when you flush, or water bubbling from your faucets, it might be time for a video inspection.
Find the sewer problem without digging
Using a tiny, fiber-optic camera snaked through the line, one of our expert sewer professionals can do a complete visual inspection, evaluate the condition of your pipes, and locate the blockage. The inspection can even be recorded so you and your plumber can review the problem together and determine the best approach to your repair.
If it turns out you simply need a “rooter job” for a quick sewer cleaning, you might want to conduct another inspection after the repair to make sure there are no other persistent problems that need to be addressed. Call the plumbing experts at your local ARS/Rescue Rooter—we’ll locate the problem and give you an upfront, written estimate for repairs.
Here are a few things that might be causing a sewer blockage:
- Build-up of grease, debris or foreign objects like toys, toilet paper, or feminine hygiene products
- Tree root intrusion
- Sewer line collapse caused by shifting ground or old and deteriorated pipes
Sewer Line Repair
A clogged sewer line creates big problems with your plumbing—problems that can only be cleared up with professional sewer repair. If you’ve noticed that your drains are draining slowly or you’ve heard a gurgling sound coming from your toilet bowl, it's time to give us a call. Your local ARS/Rescue Rooter plumbing expert will start with a video inspection to find the cause of the problem and then decide the best course of action for repairs.
What is causing your sewer line issues?
Tree roots are usually the prime suspect when it comes to sewer line damage, with nearby roots constantly seeking moisture and often finding it in your sewer line. Older clay tile pipes are most susceptible to invasion, but over time 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.
If your home has a bathroom below the level of your main sewer line, you likely have a sewage ejector pump. Its purpose is to lift the sewage to the level of the sewer line so it can flow out of the house to the community sewer or septic tank. Basically, gravity won't move your waste water, so it needs a little help.
Replacing or repairing a sewage ejector pump is a job for a qualified plumber like the ones at your local ARS/Rescue Rooter. We’ll get the job done right by:
- Properly sizing the pump to fit into your home’s existing plumbing system
- Recommending either a standard sewage ejector pump or a sewage grinder pump
- Ensuring the pump meets all local plumbing codes
Trenchless pipe repair
In the past, sewer problems usually meant excavation on a large scale, with serious yard repairs needed once a line repair was completed. Trenchless sewer pipe repair is a faster and more landscape-friendly option that only requires a few access points. Our trenchless sewer pipe replacement technology has saved our customers valuable time and money by avoiding a massive excavation of their property.
There are two approaches to trenchless sewer repair. With pipe bursting, the existing line is blown apart as a new, stronger high-density pipe is pulled through it. With pipe relining, a fiberglass line is placed inside the faulty pipe to seal any damage, creating a long-lasting repair.
Your ARS®/Rescue Rooter® sewer line professional can recommend the repair method that is best for you.
Water Line Repair
Just like many other plumbing issues, a leak in your water line could start small—but it will likely only get worse the longer you wait to repair it. That's why it's smart to call in the professionals before a minor headache becomes a big problem that's costly to repair.
The plumbers at ARS/Rescue Rooter have the experience to diagnose a problem, explain the options available to you, and fix the issue before it gets out of hand. Don’t let a damaged line derail your routine—call ARS/Rescue Rooter today.
Finding and repairing a water line leak
An electronic device is often used to determine the exact location of the water line. If necessary, the line is charged with nitrogen in order to allow more accurate detection of the leak's exact location. In many instances, only a specific section of the water line needs to be replaced, so once the leak is located, the faulty section will be placed with thick-walled, high-quality copper piping.
Once installed, the repaired or replaced section is thoroughly pressure-tested for leaks. Not only that, but a municipal inspection is also usually performed for final job approval. Steps are then taken to restore your property grounds to their original condition. Most of the time, damage is caused by:
- Overgrown tree roots
- Mineral build up and residue
- High water pressure
- Ground movement
- Acidic soil conditions
- Freezing and thawing
- General deterioration over time
