Sewer problems are, shall we say, unpleasant? A functioning sewer is one of those things that you simply take for granted until it’s time for a repair. The bad news about repairing these invisible necessities is that they can be difficult for the average homeowner to fix.

Common Reasons for Sewer Repair

There are a variety of reasons why a sewer may require some work. Here are some of the most common:

  • Waste backups. Sewers sometimes fail because they get clogged with waste such as accumulated dirt or paper products. When a single toilet or sink is clogged, the problem is relatively easy to fix. When the main sewer line gets clogged, it’s definitely time to call in the pros.
  • Bad odors. Sewers smell horrible, and you’ll soon discover it if you experience the backflow of odors into a room with a drain. Often, the offensive odor emanates from a drain trap where the water seal has evaporated. The most common place for this to happen is on the lowest level drains, especially floor drains which aren’t used very often.
  • Grease obstruction. Pouring grease down a kitchen or toilet drain is a very bad idea. In fact, some counties and municipalities actually have laws forbidding the disposal of fats, oils, and greases in sewers. In the first place, grease can clog up your own home’s sewer line, creating costly repairs. When sewer lines become coated in grease, it forms a sticky lining on the pipes that can worsen over time, collecting more and more sediment and creating the blockage. When grease flows into wastewater and treatment facilities, the problem is exacerbated. Excess grease can contribute to mechanical failure, and even environmental damage.
  • Tree roots. Sewer companies know when early spring rolls around. As trees began to grow again, the roots began to seek out sources of water. Often, water accumulates around sewer lines. Roots find this water, and crawl into the sewer lines, causing a serious obstruction.
  • Frozen pipes. Another seasonal sewer repair job has to do with frozen pipes. When unusually cold weather hits, or when residents are not using the home, water may freeze in the pipes. Frozen water causes blockages and, worse, broken pipes.

When to Call the Pros

If you have an aversion to all things plumbing, chances are, you’ve already picked up the phone to place a call to a professional plumbing services company. If you’re still wondering whether it’s a DIY fix or time to call in help, here are some considerations that you may be able to do yourself.

  • Clogged toilet. A clogged toilet is easy to fix with a bit of elbow grease and a good plunger. If the toilet still doesn’t work, you may need some assistance.
  • Slow drain. It’s a nasty job, but you may want to clean out the traps of your sink drains. This section of curved pipe underneath the sink can be removed and cleaned out. You may be surprised what you find lodged in there once you wipe away the black sludge. PVC pipes are easy to disassemble, but you may need some assistance with copper or cast iron fittings.

If a plumbing job requires that you purchase or rent special equipment, you may be best served by calling a local plumbing company. Often, a single plumbing problem snowballs into yet another, requiring more time, potential damage, and even more purchases and parts.

Sewer Repair Solutions for Every Need

Whether it's best to replace sewer line pipes entirely or make repairs to the affected area, Budget Sewer has a solution for you. Our services cover a wide range of sewer-related situations and customer preferences. The main service options we offer for sewer repair include:

Trenchless Repair

Going trenchless has never been easier and more affordable. Our seasoned technicians plan and complete trenchless sewer repair services based on the condition of the pipe, its location, and what's preferred by the client. Our trenchless repair methods include pipe lining and pneumatic pipe bursting.

Sewer Relining

Relining is the process of applying a durable coating to the inside of a damaged sewer line. It's an economical, environmentally friendly, and efficient way to preserve and restore existing sewer pipes. The coating applied hardens into a solid surface that's less susceptible to tree root damage and other issues.

Sewer Hydro Jetting

A good cleaning is what's often needed to clear sewer lines of tree roots and other debris. We do this with high-pressure water and a specially designed nozzle, a process known as hydro jetting. Sewer jetting can be done for preventative purposes, routine cleanings, or to prepare for sewer pipe line repair.

Sewer Repair FAQs

A do-it-yourself approach to sewer line replacement or even just quick repairs isn't something we recommend. Special equipment is needed to do the inspection and make the repairs. Additionally, industry and local codes need to be kept in mind during the repair process.

Costs vary based on what needs to be done and other factors. However, you'll save money if trenchless methods are used since there's no landscape restoration to worry about. Plus, the work is done with less labor and in a shorter period of time.

In most instances, there's a minimally invasive method we can recommend that's appropriate for the situation. You'll receive a more specific recommendation once we inspect your sewer lines.

Trenchless repairs are often possible to complete the work in a day. Altogether, sewer repair done this way typically involves at least two visits: one for the initial inspection and one for the work to be done.

Contacting us to schedule a video inspection at least once a year is one way to accomplish this goal. These quick and easy inspections allow smaller problems to be discovered and dealt with before they become bigger issues.
