Checking Sewer Line Issues with Video Camera Inspection

Before a technician can determine what’s wrong with your sewer line, they need to inspect where the issue begins. Our team is trained to use video camera technology to inspect your lines from the inside to see where the problem is.

Using a pinhole camera attached to a lead, a video camera inspection allows us to determine where clogs, leaks, or deterioration is taking place, giving us the chance to create an action plan. Once we know the problem, we’ll advise you on whether it’s time to repair or replace your sewer line, and give you all the options available.

Sewer Line Repair and Replacement in Maine

When your sewer line breaks, most companies have to dig into your lawn or landscaping to make the fix. We are Southern Maine’s experts in trenchless sewer repair, allowing us to make many fixes without destroying your yard. Heritage Home Service utilizes pipe bursting and cured-in-place pipe lining (CIPP) methods to keep your sewer lines working and your home in great condition.

Pipe Bursting

While pipe bursting is often a bad thing for your home, the pipe bursting repair method is an easy way to fix sewer line problems. To make repairs, our technicians use a hydraulic or pneumatic bursting head in the pipe to bust the damaged area. At the same time, we install the new pipe in place. Using this method, we can make the repair faster and with less damage, usually at a lower price than traditional replacement.

Traditional Sewer Line Replacement

If pipe bursting isn’t an option, Heritage can also complete a traditional sewer line replacement for your Southern Maine Home. A traditional replacement requires plumbers to dig the pipe out of the ground, remove the damaged portions, and make repairs or install replacements.

While a traditional sewer line replacement will force technicians to dig into your yard, it allows Heritage to complete the work in the most comprehensive way possible. We’ll not only be able to ensure the repairs and replacements are done thoroughly, but we’ll also be able to evaluate the rest of the line for any bigger issues that may arise down the line.


Does My Home’s Sewer Line Need to Be Replaced?

There are several telltale signs that your sewer line may need to be repaired or replaced. If you notice any of these issues, it might be time to call Heritage for a sewer line inspection:

Frequent clogs

Mold and mildew growth

Pest infestation

Puddles in your yard

Random lush patches of grass

Indentations in your lawn

Sewage backups

Sewage smell in and around your home

Cracks in your home’s foundation

Slow moving drains

Other issues could also cause your sewer line to become weak over time. Your home or ground settling as the result of small earthquakes can add stress to your pipes, along with natural wear from regular usage. If you are experiencing any of the above issues, call Heritage to schedule an evaluation of your sewer line, and get the best advice on what to do next. Our team has experience repairing and replacing cracked, corroded, collapsed, offset, leaking, and overgrown sewer lines.
