Identify Sewer Line Problems with a Video Camera Inspection

If you have a problem with your sewer line, you’re not alone. In fact, sewer line repair and replacement is one of the most common types of plumbing work. Whether your sewer line is clogged, cracked, or simply outdated, replacing or repairing it is essential to the health and function of your home.

Sewer Line Repair

At Heritage Home Services, we specialize in trenchless sewer repair. This means that we can repair your pipes without having to excavate and cause damage to your landscaping. We perform sewer line repair by pipe bursting.

What is Pipe Bursting?

Pipe bursting involves breaking up the old pipe with a hydraulic or pneumatic bursting head while simultaneously installing a new pipe. This method is less disruptive than traditional methods of sewer line repair and can often be completed in a shorter time frame.

Traditional Sewer Line Replacement

Traditional sewer line replacement is when a plumber will dig around your sewer lines to remove and replace them. While this method may disrupt the landscaping, some types of sewer damage can only be repaired properly by digging. It allows the plumbers to be very thorough in their inspection after replacing your pipes to ensure that the new pipe is in the correct position and won’t break.

In the case of pipe collapse, traditional sewer line replacement is the only option for homeowners.

How Do I know if My Sewer Line Needs to be Replaced?

If you recognize any of these symptoms in your sewer line, don’t panic – just call Heritage for a video camera inspection. Once we get a good look at your sewer line, we will be able to confirm whether sewer pipe replacement is necessary, if you just need repairs, or if a simple drain cleaning will do the trick.

What Homeowners Need to Know About their Sewer Line

Causes of Sewer Line Damage

  • Tree roots: Tree roots are one of the most common causes of sewer line damage. They infiltrate the pipes looking for water, clog them, and can even break them.
  • Frozen ground: When it gets to below freezing temperatures, the ground can freeze and cause the pipes to freeze as well. This clogs the pipes and the expansion of the water can cause cracks or breaks.
  • Corroded pipes: Pipes can become corroded by calcium buildup and ultimately lead to cracks and leaks. Older pipes are especially susceptible to corrosion.
  • Clogged pipes: A buildup of grease, hair, toilet paper, and non-flushable items can cause a clog in the pipes.

How to Prevent Sewer Line Issues

  • Get regular sewer line maintenance
  • Remove trees that have caused damage in the past or may cause damage to your sewer pipes in the future
  • Don’t pour grease down the drain
  • Use a hair catcher in the shower and tub
  • Only flush waste and toilet paper
  • No sanitary products, wipes, or other items should be flushed
