The sewer system in your home’s plumbing remains one of the most important elements of all. Such a system handles everything from the home’s waste to excess water, so when a single problem occurs, it can be quite a messy inconvenience for all those involved. In fact, any issue with a sewer line can be quite dangerous, too. Waste that may back up in a sewage system can often lead to harmful bacteria festering in the pipes and spreading throughout your entire home. In some cases, it can even lead to environmental damage. This is why it pays to call the professional sewer repair experts at Dutton Plumbing when you begin to notice any trouble with a sewer system. We specialize in repairing such systems and can even tackle the biggest of problems with ease.
Clogged Sewer Line
A clogged sewer line is often one of the most common problems we experience on the job. When it comes to sewer repair, we always start by using Vision Technologies Sewer Camera, allowing our plumbers to run a cable through the length of the pipe and locate the clog quickly. With the camera, we notice root penetrations, blockages, and even faulty pipes. Believe it or not, a clog can often be caused by the roots of a tree penetrating the outer wall of your sewer pipes. The roots then begin to grow and block the flow of the pipe. At Dutton Plumbing, we have specialized products designed to remove such problems without harming the rest of the system. For example, RootX is a foaming root-control product known to be completely safe and effective for such issues.
Sewer Repair Estimates
The sewer main is the primary pipe carrying waste water from your home to the city’s sewer system. As a homeowner, you need to maintain and repair the sewer line on your property. The city won’t take care of the work, unfortunately, and your insurance provider may skimp when it comes to paying for it. Sadly, sewer repair is one of the most expensive plumbing jobs a homeowner can tackle. Thankfully, trenchless sewer repair is a viable, cost-effective option.
That’s why the team at Dutton Plumbing promises to write up a comprehensive quote for our sewer repair services before we begin any work. To estimate this cost, we consider the cost of service, and the scope of the job itself. Keep in mind that, on average, sewer repair services cost several thousand dollars. However, we promise not to nickel and dime you. We offer only competitive pricing for our plumbing repair services.
Cracked Sewer Pipe
A broken sewer pipe may spell devastation for your home and property. If left alone for too long, a cracked sewer pipe can cause extensive property damage. It can also pose serious health risks to anyone living nearby. Luckily, Dutton Plumbing provides excellent and efficient sewer repair services, including trenchless sewer repair. Countless homeowners and business owners have relied on our quality trenchless sewer repairs since we first opened our doors. In the past, sewer repair required costly digging and expensive equipment, too. Today, we use trenchless sewer repair to minimize both cost and damage to your property.
Like any plumbing issues, sewer line damage can occur due to numerous causes. The most common causes include corrosion, rust, brittle pipes, or cracked plastic pipes. In general, any plumbing pipe can break due to extreme water or ground pressure. Whatever the reason, you need the best technicians to handle the task. Do not let a cracked sewer pipe sit too long. Call Dutton Plumbing!
How can I prevent a sewer backup?
Anyone who has experienced flooding in the home after a particularly heavy bout of rainfall knows there is more than just water damage to contend with. A sewer backup involves sewage or wastewater seeping into the home due to the flooding waters. This poses a significant health hazard to everyone inside the home.
To prevent sewer backup, homeowners can take advantage of a few different options. A floor drain plug will prevent any water backup from escaping the drainage pipes and seeping back into the foundation. A standpipe is also a unique method to avoid excess water levels from damaging your home. Finally, a backwater valve or backflow preventer can be installed in the home or in an underground pipe to connect the sewer line and prevent water from flowing backward through the pipeline systems. Dutton Plumbing can install any of these backup prevention methods for you.
