Sewer lines are the pipes that send water waste out from your home and back into the city sewer system. All dirty water and waste water is sent out from your home through the sewer lines. Clogs and blockages in the sewer line can cause serious problems for any home or business. If you suspect your sewer line is clogged, call 303-835-7405 to arrange an inspection.
If your system has slowed down and you hear a gurgling sound coming from your toilet, your sewer line may have a blockage. In worst case scenarios, a sewer line can become completely blocked and your system may back up completely. In cases like these, it's vital to contact a professional as soon as possible. In cases where the clog is located outside the home, tree roots are often the cause. They can penetrate sewer lines, create leaks, and catch material on its way to the sewer system. Other common issues include foreign objects, high or low temperatures, buildup of residue, improper installation, and general pipe deterioration.
There are a few solutions available for fixing sewer line clogs. First, we will inspect the sewer line with video equipment. Video inspection allows plumbers to quickly find the cause and location of the blockage. Then we will decide the best course of action. If the pipe is sound, we will attempt to dislodge the clog with either an auger or a high-pressure jet.
If the pipe itself is damaged, we may choose to replace the damaged portion of the sewer line or use trenchless sewer repair, which would not involve any excavation. In extreme cases, we may need to excavate and replace a portion of the sewer line. After our plumbers inspect your property, they will be able to recommend an appropriate course of action. To schedule an on-site inspection, call 303-835-7405 today.
