Sewer Line Experts
Not all plumbing problems are caused by pipes in your home. A clogged sewer line could also be the potential culprit. A tell-tale sign that you have a clog in your sewer line is when water backs up into your shower or bathtub. If you notice this backup, call Reed and Son Services right way to correct the situation before it gets worse. Start by scheduling your video inspection to see if you’re in need of sewer line repair or replacement.
There are different types of sewer line repair that our sewer line repair professionals can quickly assess depending on your specific circumstances. If you notice any of the following you may need sewer cleaning or to repair the line itself.
- Backed Up Drains: If you have one drain that is being slow then you just need drain cleaning. If the drains throughout your home are not emptying, this is usually a clear indicator that you need sewer cleaning.
- Bad Smells: Sometimes bad smells will emanate from the drain due to sewage remaining unmoved in the pipes. Look out for these smells in the basement or your lawn.
- Standing Water: Another place to look would be your sewer cleanout, where you will find standing water draining out if the line is clogged.
- Toilet Water Level is Inconsistent: What we mean is if one day your toilet bowl is almost empty and then another day it’s more full, then your sewer line is likely affecting you plumbing appliances in ways it shouldn’t.
- Water Fixture Back Ups: One system may begin overflowing with water while you are using another. For example, the toilet or sink will run over while you use the washing machine. For clogs that are not too severe, sewer cleaning through hydro jetting is sometimes the best solution.
- Abundance of Critters Attracted to Your Yard: This is another indicator that you might have sewer water leaking from your sewer line into your yard. A squirrel here or there isn’t what we’re talking about. If your problem borders on the line of infestation, then contact our sewer line repair experts.
Sewer Line Excavation
While some sewer line problems can be solved without excavation, if it needs to be replaced, the line will have to be dug up in order to do so. You should always use a professional excavation service to ensure the job is done right — quickly and safely. Our sewer line repair and excavation team knows all the local and states excavation laws and uses the proper equipment to safely access the necessary pipes. If you attempt excavating on yourself, you could easily hit a utility line and make the problem worse for you and your neighbors.
