Main Sewer Line Cleaning

Our technicians are equipped with the most sophisticated equipment available to service all of your sewer rodding needs.

Roots from trees and larger shrubs enter at sewer line from connections (every 2 feet on clay tile sewers), they grow and expand to fill up the pipe with a hair-like root mass. This obstruction can become clogged with toilet paper, debris and grease coming from the house to the main sewer line. Other causes of sewer line problems include foreign objects, pipe misalignment, pipe bellies or sagging, collapsed or even broken pipe.

Some leaks are obvious, like dripping faucets and leaking water heaters. But many go undetected for years because many leaks are hidden underground, behind walls or beneath floors. Oftentimes you will be faced with hidden plumbing leaks. If you do not see obvious signs of a water leak but suspect you have one, there is an easy way to determine if you have one. Just use your water meter. Here are a few simple steps:

2. Check your water meter and record the number

If you want to try to locate the leak, there are a few common areas you can check, such as the rubber flapper valves in your toilets; under your kitchen and bathroom sinks; and look for drips from your bathtubs and showers.

A slab leak happens when the pipes in the water lines beneath your home break or burst. The leak is not actually in the slab, but in the pipes under the concrete slab of your home. Signs of trouble include: • The sound of running water when all water is turned off • A warm spot on the floor • Cracks in your walls or flooring • Mildew or moisture under carpets or flooring • Higher-than-average water bills

Leak Repair Options

• Re-piping: This solution is often used if there are multiple leaks and will probably require invasive cutting into your floors and concrete slab in order to access the pipe leak and install brand new piping. • Pipe re-routing: With this repair, new pipe is run above ground. This option is ideal if only a short length of pipe needs to be replaced. • Pipe Relining: Depending on the size of the leak, a new liner can be pushed through a broken sewer pipe to cover breaks and seal all leaks. This is trenchless pipe repair technology and only requires access holes on either end of the pipe, as opposed to digging a trench to uncover the entire length of buried pipe. An epoxy infused flexible sleeve is pulled through the old pipe which cures in place to become strong, rigid pipe as smooth as new PVC pipe.

Shower and Tub Leaks

If you see water stains on the ceiling below, or if you notice loose flooring near the tub, you may have a drain leak. Leak Repair Options • For a tub drain, unscrew the drain flange from above, clean the flange and apply silicone caulk. Remove the rubber gasket under the drain hole and replace it with a new gasket.

Toilet Leaks

Toilets are one the most common types of leaks and they usually go undetected. The most harmful leaks happen at the flange and the wax ring. Signs that you have a leaky toilet include: • Water leaking around the base • Loose or damaged flooring • Stains on the ceiling below • A toilet that rocks slightly when you push against it

Leak Repair Options

If you have a stain near the toilet, a leaking flange is the likely source. Remove the toilet to locate the leak. • For a cracked flange or broken bolt slots, install a metal repair flange • If the flange is loose, tighten it to the subfloor • If the flange is too low, install a hard plastic flange riser over the existing flange If the problem is not a leaky flange, you may need to reinstall the toilet with a new wax ring.

Sink Leaks

For kitchen and bathroom sinks, signs of trouble include water stains or an odor inside the cabinet, as well as loose or damaged flooring in front of the sink.

Leak Repair Options
