Common Sewer Line Repairs are Easy Fixes
The first step of being a homeowner that can competently spot sewer line issues is knowing the root cause of common sewer line problems. Often, smaller issues—like a clogged toilet or low water pressure—points towards a bigger problem at hand. Sewer lines may break down over time by mistreatment, however, there is still the threat of the environment and construction. In order to assist you with keeping these everyday sewer line problems from spiraling into disasters, we have cataloged ways to spot and avoid them:
- Slow Drains and Stagnant Pools of Water: This is among the most common household problem that arises when homeowners treat their drains like a garbage compactor. Drains are meant to dispose of non-corrosive liquids and food products that are easy to break down. Believe it or not, but the treatment of kitchen and bathroom drains can protect or jeopardize functioning sewer lines. Grease and grime conglomerates not only in the pipes beneath sinks—but in sewer line systems as well. Using store-bought drain cleaners will only intensify the problem but turn a common drain problem into a sewer line catastrophe. The chemicals in these cleaners are not environmentally safe and damaging to the material of sewer lines, particularly cast iron and steel pipes.
- A Lack of Water Pressure in Sewer Lines: Many sewer line issues are the direct result of another problem that stems from mistreating drains and pipes. If your drains and toilets are indeed treated like a trash bin for foreign objects—including cigarette butts, feminine products, or any other insoluble materials—they will build up in the pipes and affect water flow. Furthermore, trapped pockets of grease and grime beneath sinks can cause water pressure to diminish. This can be a big problem if ignored or mishandled with cleaners. Luckily, we have cleaning services that will not damage sewer lines.
- Dirty Water in Toilets and Kitchen Faucets: There are two reasons why homeowners should be concerned about their source of potable water becoming discolored. The first reason ties into the threat of pipe materials, like cast-iron and steel, experiencing corrosion due to age or drain cleaners. This is a pretty serious warning sign that immediate sewer line repairs are needed—so the drains do not rupture and spew raw sewage in basements or the pipes around a front or backyard. The second reason is less serious, indicating that metal objects have been haphazardly flushed down toilets into the sewer lines systems. These objects rust over time and discolor the potable water that runs from sinks and faucets.
It is apparent that sewer line emergencies do not have to be a threat if homeowners follow the correct steps with keeping their drains and pipes well-maintained. However, some sewer line problems cannot be avoided. Perhaps you live in an older home, unaware that its sewer pipes are rusted beyond repair. Or a storm hit last week that knocked down trees on your property, accidentally disturbing a nearby sewer line. In the case of these events, The Plumber’s Plumber is here to provide the best emergency repairs around.
Some Emergency Repair Scenarios in Naples, FL
Sewer line breaks are always an unsettling experience. Nobody wants vermin like sewer roaches and huge rats scurrying around their basement, or a noxious raw sewage odor lingering for days. Not only are broken sewer lines financially taxing, but mentally exhausting because they cause great interference with daily life. Once the contents of sewer lines seep from the earth and around backyards, it can be hard to think clearly about a solution. Our plumbers will do the thinking for you once you give us a call! Here are some emergency repair scenarios that we have dealt with in the past.
Clogged Drains that Completely Subtract from Water Flow
When homeowners do not have potable water to clean their dishes or cannot flush their toilets, they consider it an emergency since it is hard to conduct daily tasks. We will make sure water flow is revived as soon as possible by following a strict protocol that maximizes repair time. With our powerful drain cleaning methods—such hydro jetting—we can take of these pesky blockages without incident. Not only are our drain cleaning procedures highly effective, but they never involve store-bought cleaners that are dangerous to both humans and sewer lines.
A Backyard Tree Has Extended its Roots Deep into a Sewer Line
Once again, our drain cleaning procedures will solve the issues. Unfortunately, trees are quite perceptive to areas in the soil that have a high concentration of moisture or nutrients. Sewer lines often leak moisture and nutrients, attracting tree roots. When the roots extend into sewer lines, a lack of water pressure or even cracks may occur. We will attentively remove the tree roots and fix any damage to sewer lines. This dilemma is often considered an emergency because tree roots are very powerful, capable of pressing thousands of pounds of pressure on sewer lines—especially from older trees.
The final sewer line emergency is more nuanced due to our industry-leading pipe repair services. We not only quickly clean up the aftereffect of sewer line breaks but provide a few repair options. Ruptured sewer line pipes are not a black-and-white scenario with how The Plumber’s Plumber approaches repairs. In fact, we offer three repair routes that distinctively resolve pipe breaks.
Broken Sewer Lines 101
Pipe bursting, pipe lining, and excavations are three repair choices that follow our prompt response to sewer line emergencies. These selections are tailored to the state of sewer line systems—whether the pipes are corroded beyond repair or suffer a minute crack or leak. The goal with pipe repairs is either to mend pipe systems to a better-than-new condition or replace existing sewer lines with new pipes that may last a lifetime. The Plumber’s Plumber enhances the collective of home appliances that rely on potable water by making sewer lines much sturdier and more reliable than before they broke. Here are the three ways these repairs differ—but firstly, sewer camera inspections deserve some attention since they always precede repairs and drain cleaning.
The Sewer Camera Inspection
Clogs and the location of pipe breaks can be both invisible and visible. With a sewer camera inspection, these interferences cannot remain hidden with its waterproof and high-resolution lens. When a pipe breaks, there are many important details are plumbers need to know—such as the sewer line’s age, material (whether the pipes are made of cast iron or plastic), diameter, and state. With these details, we can begin deciding if Naples homeowners ought to select excavation or instead opt for pipe lining. The first and most efficient pipe repair service is pipe lining.
Pipe Lining Mends Existing Pipelines
Without the hassle of digging trenches or properly disposing of sewer pipes, pipe lining installs a cured-in-place. In fact, pipe lining makes sewer lines much more durable and long-lasting. Before we insert the epoxy lining coat into the sewer line, we dutifully clean the pipes after a sewer camera inspections. This prevents any future drain cleaning and pipe inspections so our customers can rest at ease with knowing their sewer line system checks out. After the end of preliminary inspections, our Naples, FL plumbers will create the epoxy liner and implant it into the sewer line through sewer camera’s access point. In a matter of hours, the liner will heat up and conceal sewer line fractures, essentially creating new pipes. Pipe bursting differs from both traditional excavations and pipe lining in fundamental ways.
Broken Pipes are Removed and Sewer Lines Restored with Pipe Bursting
Through two precisely located access points, our team of plumbers may blast the remains of broken pipeline systems from the soil, making room for new pipes. If a Naples homeowner decides that they would rather remove ruptured sewer lines, or the damage is too extensive, pipe bursting will be the right choice. Once will analyze the width and length of your sewer pipes, we will then select the very best pipe material to replace the old pipes. With a bursting head that is powered by hydraulic energy, the pipe will be pressed into the sewer line and water flow will soon be restored. The broken-up pipe parts from the old pipe system will be collected from the ground and quickly disposed of. Pipe excavations is a little similar pipe bursting, but more laborious since its meant to excavate an entire sewer line system.
Pipe Excavations Removes and Replaces Sewer Lines
Although pipe bursting and pipelining quite popular due to their ability to bypass extensive labor, there are certain issues they cannot solve. Older pipelines may be badly rusted or need to be rerouted to avoid nearby traffic or groves of trees that have grown a lot since the pipes were installed. Traditional pipe excavations are not so traditional with The Plumber’s Plumber state-of-the-art pipe removal tactics. We rely on the sewer camera to inform us about the areas of pipe corrosion and leaks so we may begin switching them out for new pipes. Traditional excavations have a reputation for being a hazard to the environment and backyards. Our plumbers’ core value resides in minimizing environmental risks while keeping backyards the way they looked before we began excavations. On top of the emergency and pipe repair services we offer, there are many drain cleaning procedures that usually complement the installation of new sewer line pipes.
Pipe Cleaning and Other Services
Hydro jetting is our company’s drain cleaning specialty that causes sewer lines to be blockage free. The hydro jet’s nozzle generates a high-powered stream of water that can travel through many pipes in the sewer line. It can remove obstructions from tree roots along with multiple blockages throughout the pipes. Along with hydro jetting, which our plumbers commonly conduct, we offer:
- Smoke/odor detections: Unfortunately, sewer cameras have a tough time detecting the source for smoke and odors that are released within sewer lines. Through advanced plumbing technologies, we can isolate the cause of odor and smoke that emits from dishwashers, drains, and washing machines.
- Water Main Leaks: Like broken sewer lines, water main leaks are a delicate issue since Naples residents depend on water for comfort and survival. We use the same materials for sewer pipe lining—like an epoxy resin tube—to prevent further obstructions to water mains. With our minimally intrusive, homeowners never have to worry about more damage to their water lines.
