We determine the cause of your issue, starting with the direction and route of the pipe. We use a locator to electronically maneuver the camera head so that we can find the trouble spot. Many different types of materials were used in the past for sewer and drain lines: cast iron, transite (concrete), clay, even wood! With these materials, root intrusion is very common as they search for small cracks to reach for moisture. Today, state and local regulations require that plastic or PVC is used; pipe joints are tight and secure to prevent backups caused by tree root infiltration.
NEW HOME BUYERS! Ask for a camera inspection of the sewer service of your potential new home! The last thing you want to deal with during the early stages of new home ownership is a sewer back up! We will also visually inspect the water service line entering your property.
Sewer and drain service installation & repair
The majority of properties in our service area utilize a municipal sewer system consisting of a main trunk line in which individual branch or service lines allow the waste water from your home or business to travel to a remote sewerage treatment plant. In some cases roots from nearby trees and plants are in search of water and can intrude into the joists in older pipes causing a blockage not allowing the waste water to drain therefore causing a backup. We have the equipment to locate and repair the problem area. Some cities and towns allow residents to connect their sump pump discharge lines into the municipal storm water system, preventing sump pump water from discharging onto the surface and potentially reducing the homeowner’s liability, particularly in the winter when this water may freeze.
