Sewer Line Video Inspection
Years ago, finding the cracked portion of a sewer line was almost entirely done by guesswork. Whole sections of the yard might be dug up without need. That left some very visible scarring in the ground that took quite a while to go away. Nowadays, we have sewer line video inspection. Utilizing a special camera attached to a cord, which is inserted into and carefully maneuvered through the sewer line. Inside the pipe, it’s easy to find the damage. How would you like to fix your sewer line without digging up the entire length of the front or backyard?
Once the damage has been located, your personal plumber can get started on repairs. While modern tools allow us to fix some problems without trenching, there may be some limited digging required to fix the problem. If the damage is located under the slab, the process will be much more involved.
We’ll start by exposing the affected piping section with as little digging as possible. Depending on the state of the pipe, a section of the pipe may need to be removed and replaced. This is especially true for sections that have been penetrated by roots or heavy soil content. Afterward, we’ll secure the new section of pipe and recover the line. We’ll make sure the line is working properly before we leave so that you can fully enjoy your restored draining function.
Main Sewer Line Replacement
Full sewer line replacement is a very involved project. While it’s best to maintain your piping for as long as possible, all pipes eventually have to be replaced. When that happens, you want to have your pipes installed flawlessly. No one wants to dig up the yard a second time to fix a leak that shouldn’t have been there in the first place!
At Patriot Plumbing Service, you can rely on our experienced team for your line replacement. We’ll ensure that your piping is securely connected to the rest of your system and installed correctly beneath the ground. Don’t take your replacement to an untested plumber; choose an expert!
Common Sewer Line Issues
There are a few “usual suspects” when it comes to sewer line damage. First, there are internal clogs. These can be caused by random items flushed down the toilet, oils, and grease put down the sink or mineral deposits from local hard water content. Any of this gunk can obstruct your sewer line and generate powerful outward pressure, eventually rupturing the line. Sewer pipe repair will be essential at that point. If you detect a clog in your plumbing system, be sure to call our team at 254-246-7913 and ask for our Copperas Cove & Killeen, TX sewer line repair.
Another force that can crack your pipe is shifting ground. This one’s harder to predict or control. If you can improve your property’s draining capabilities, you could reduce the risk of these sudden shifts.
Finally, there are tree roots. Slow moving but incredibly powerful, tree roots push up against your pipes (the sewer or mainline) until the line cracks. Sensing the presence of water, tree roots will actually grow into the pipe until it’s completely obstructed. In the worst cases, the blockage will force wastewater back into the house. This is why trimming your tree roots away from your main lines is so crucial.
