How We Repair Sewer Lines

Before repairing your sewer line, the most important step is an expert diagnosis of the issue. Barker & Sons Plumbing takes advantage of state-of-the-art in-pipe video inspection and leak detection technologies to pinpoint the exact source of any sewer issue. This analysis helps guide our decision on what kind of sewer repair you need. We offer all of the following sewer repair services:

Trenchless Sewer Repair

Instead of digging up your yard for traditional sewer line repair, trenchless repair allows us to bore an opening through access points and repair up to a hundred feet of pipe with minimal damage. Trenchless repair is handled with the pipe-lining method or the pipe-bursting method.

You can learn about the difference between pipe lining and pipe bursting from this blog post, and check out this blog post to learn more about the trenchless sewer repair process.

Sewer Replacement Services

If we determine that parts or all of your sewer line are damaged beyond repair, we can replace it. We also offer trenched and open-trench sewer pipe replacement that can replace your collapsed, broken, punctured, cracked, or root-filled sewer lines without us having to dig up your yard.

Hydro Jetting

If you’re dealing with extra tough clogs, regular sewer repair and replacement techniques might not do the trick. Hydro jetting can cut through clogs and roots that block wastewater from moving down your pipes, washing away all gunk and debris from your pipes so that they are as clean as they were when new. 

Our team might recommend hydro jetting as a standalone solution or in coordination with other sewer repair or replacement services. Check out how hydro jetting works here; you can even watch a video animation showing how it’s done! 

Video Camera Pipe Inspections

With the power of video camera technology, you and your sewer repair team can see inside the sewer line for yourself. Video inspection of your sewer line will allow our plumbers to determine the most appropriate repair solution. Check out a full list of the benefits of video camera pipe inspections.

Why You May Need Sewer Line Repair Services

No one wants to have to deal with sewer line repair, but what typically causes these problems? At Barker and Sons we’ve seen it all. The most common causes include:

  • Broken or cracked pipes
  • Tree roots intruding on pipes’ space
  • Blockages caused by grease or other undesirable materials
  • Corroding or deteriorating pipes
  • Pipes that have bellied or sunk into the ground due to soil conditions
  • Pipes that have leaking joints

What are the Warning Signs?

While it’s helpful to know why sewer lines can become damaged, it’s even more important for homeowners to know the symptoms of a damaged sewer line. If you have noticed any of the following warning signs, you should call a professional plumber to diagnose the issue:

  • Strange sounds and smells, such as toilets gurgling and sewage smells coming from your drains or sinks.
  • Slow draining sinks and bathtubs.
  • Bugs and other pests living in your drains could be indicative of a sewer line block.
  • Mold and mildew can result from any number of household problems. One of the causes is a sewer line blockage, as water backs up and provides a great environment for mold to grow. 
  • Unexplained wet spots in your yard or floors may be due to sewer line problems. These wet spots in the yard can even lead to extra green grass patches.
