sewer line repair

Here's a list of the most common issues one can experience and how you can get it fixed quickly and with little to no disruption:

Slow Draining Sink

Slow working drains indicate that there's a huge buildup of debris and calcified matter inside your pipes. For kitchen sinks, it could be grease, congealed food, and solid scraps. For bathrooms, it could be hair, soap scum, and shampoo residue that causing the clog.

Clogged Toilet

When you turn the handle and the water rises instead of being drained, then that's the sign of a clog issue. The blockage may be caused by human waste, paper, and everyday items such as toys, wet ones, and feminine products.

Low Water Pressure

Do you have a faucet that trickles water instead of gushing out? Your sewer system can be experiencing low water pressure, caused by leaky, corroded or broken pipes that allow liquid to escape. It could also be that there's a buildup of mineral deposits and sediments on the aerators. Should the issue involve your pipes, we can offer sewer pipe line repair in Seattle, WA, and nearby areas.

Leaky Pipes

Leaky pipes can be anything from a minor nuisance to a large-scale catastrophe. The water escaping from your pipes can lead to mold growing on the walls, damage to your furniture, and a noticeable increase in your water bill. This type of problem happens more often during the winter, when cold temperatures make the water inside pipes expand, thereby causing them to burst.

Clogged Drains

Mineral, calcification, hair, grease and tree roots can get trapped inside your pipes and slowly build up over time. If your sewer line is more than 20 years old, you may be experiencing constant clogging issues. It's best to call in a professional instead of reaching for that drain cleaning solution as the chemicals could harm your pipes in the long run. We can unclog your drains in an environmentally safe manner without having to dig a single hole.

Sewer System Backup

Backups of your sewer system can be a messy affair. The sewage coming in from fixtures such as sinks and toilets can damage furniture and ruin your day. If multiple drains are malfunctioning and you smell raw sewage, the cause could be invading tree roots. Nearby shrubs and trees love water and invade pipes in search of nourishment. Old sewer lines are particularly more susceptible to this kind of invasion. When roots grow inside pipes the material can break apart or burst, leading to emergencies and requiring repair or even sewer line replacement in Seattle, WA, and nearby areas.
