Trenchless Sewer Line Repair

No more ruining your backyard, landscaping or lawn just for a repair. This method is not only less expensive than the traditional route, but offers a faster timeline to getting your sewer line fixed.

Cutting out the invasive methods is great; with trenchless sewer line repair we introduce two different methods for achieving the repairment of your pipes. These methods include:

1) Pipe Relining

This process is a formidable repair process that help re-solidify your pipes. Our plumbers use a material that hardens over any cracks or holes in the pipes, reinforcing and closing off any areas that may have been exposed. This is usually used for pipes that are still intact for the most part and is quite effective and cost efficient.

2) Pipe Bursting

This process is used in more severe cases, and runs a new sewer pipe through your old, effectively replacing it. Ripping through the old area and taking its place, this process has many variations including pipe upsizing; which includes replacing the old pipe with one that has a larger diameter.

It’s important to be proactive in sewer line repair cases, maintenance checks and inspections can help achieve results and solutions before problems get out of hand. Using these checks helps our plumbers make a diagnosis if trenchless sewer line repair is the right direction to go.

Sewer System Backups

Sewer System Backups

Sewer system backups happen when more water than usual backs up the flow into the city sewer lines. This backup can cause terrible stenches within your pipeline, it occurs from common mistakes like over flushing. It can also happen from improper items being flushed or thrown down the drain. Things that are considered improper items include baby wipes, cooking oils, paper towels, diapers and makeup products. The clogs are what can be the starting point for an eventual sewer system backup.

For backups that get effected directly in your sewer line and not from household mistakes are usually more damaging in the long term to your external plumbing. Heavy rainfall is one of them, as it can lead to floods which can also cause major sewer system backup. Root intrusion from large trees, corrosion and mold can also lead to blockage and eventual backup.

JLZ Plumbing looks at your sewer system backup and assesses the best course of action to take. The type and severity of the clog, backup or buildup can help determine what steps need to be taken and how quickly. There are some notable steps you can take to avoid future sewer system backups including:

Installing a Backwater Valve

A valve sometimes called a backflow valve helps reduce sewage from backing up, if water ever starts flowing backwards; a flap on the valves closes and halts it.

Avoid Disposing Improper Items in the Sink or Toilet

Do not treat your drains as garbage cans, this can lead to accelerated backups and major blockage within your pipeline.

Switch your Pipes to Plastic

Not only a quick installation process, but doesn’t let tree roots seep into the pipeline.

Sewer system backups can be a hard thing to catch right away, but when you do it’s good to act on it fast. Our plumbers value your need for our services; and will solve your sewer system backup issues and help maintain it for the long term.
