Sewer Line Repair
A clogged sewer line creates big problems with your plumbing—problems that can only be cleared up with professional sewer line 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 sewer 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 sewer line repair was completed. Trenchless 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. Give us a call and we’ll assess the damage and repair it as soon as possible. It’s what we do best!
