Sewer Line Repair
Problems With Sewer Lines
Sewer lines are made to allow liquid and waste to pass through to the City sewer line or your septic tank. Sewer lines can become clogged due to many reasons. Some things that can clog your sewer that you have direct control over are: flushing wipes down the toilet, eliminating grease down the kitchen drain or anything large like a rag will will eventually clog your sewer line.
There are also several things that can affect your sewer line that are not in your control. Roots can invade your sewer line, the dirt underneath the sewer line can loosen or cave and cause a sag in your sewer line and older sewer lines can deteriorate. If you have an older house (40+ years old) in the Phoenix area then you can expect the sewer lines to be made of cast iron, clay and orangeburg. All three of these pipe lines deteriorate and breakdown. Replacement is the best option.
Sewer Line Repairs and Sewer Line Replacement
Sometimes a sewer line can be spot repaired. In this case a section of the sewer line is repaired or replaced.
Other times the only option is to replace the sewer line.
Sewer Line Clean Outs
Sewer line back ups can be improved by installing clean outs. If you have an older sewer line that is having problems and you need to buy some time then installing sewer clean outs can help. It's also cost effective in the long run. For homes that have roof vents, we highly recommend installing clean outs. More plumbing companies are not willing to come out to clean roof vents.
