    Common Sewer Line Problems

    Broken, cracked or collapsed pipe

    Pipes can be damaged by shifting soil, freezing, or settling.

    Corroded pipe

    Corrosion can cause deterioration, breakage, or a complete collapse of the line, thus prohibiting proper flow through the line.

    Blocked pipe

    Grease, soap, debris, or even a foreign object, can restrict or completely stop the proper flow.

    Pipe with a “belly”

    This term describes a sunken portion of pipe. This is frequently caused by soil conditions that allow for sinking, creating a “belly” that collects waste, rather than allowing it to flow through freely.

    Pipes damaged by root infiltration

    Plants naturally seek moisture. When a tree or shrub root has broken into the sewer line, this will damage the line, preventing proper flow and effective cleaning. The Rooter Works recommends using our state-of-the-art pipe camera when regular cleaning methods prove unsuccessful to determine whether roots (or something else) may be the cause of the problem.

    If you are on a septic system, it is extremely important that you remove trees or bushes from the drain field area. If trees or bushes are allowed in the drain field area, they will eventually choke the drainpipes, preventing proper operation of the septic system. Even weeds and grass can have a detrimental effect on the system, due to roots. Contact us for a drain field appraisal.

    Pipes with leaky joints

    If joints were not properly sealed, or if the seal between pipes has broken, sewer fluids will escape into the area surrounding the pipe.

    Trenchless Sewer Line Repair & Replacement

    Trenchless sewer line repair and replacement is the least invasive way to fix a punctured or leaking sewer line. Trenchless repair is a technology that allows for plumbers to repair the sewer line without damaging the existing property.

    For example, if the leak were located under a deck, it would need to be pulled up in order to access the issue. But with trenchless technology, the repair is made under the ground without the financial costs of rebuilding after conventional digging. Trenchless repair does cost more upfront, so consult a professional plumber to determine the best solution for your repair needs.
