At Roto-Rooter Ventura, we have spent more than 35 years in the plumbing industry and developed many innovative solutions to the thorniest residential and commercial plumbing difficulties. We understand you haven’t spent too much time thinking about the sewer system that delivers fresh, clean water to your home or business and keeps your property sanitary. Here’s a quick breakdown of how home sewer lines can get backed up, and what we can do to fix even the most severe issues.
What Causes Pipe Problems?
The most serious sewer backups generally occur within the main sewer line, which is the one common pipe all drains are designed to lead to. This same pipe also removes wastewater and channels it to the municipal sewer line – or a septic tank, if you have one.
Any kind of severe blockage in the main sewer line can make it temporarily unsafe to use your plumbing system. In this situation, you won’t be able to run any water, including flushing toilets, because there’s no outlet to allow that waste to escape.
Of course, clogs and backups can also occur on a single drain line due to human behavior. Problems often emerge gradually as debris like food scraps, hair, soap scum, mineral deposits and cooking oil builds up inside drain lines and eventually causes undue wear and tear on the sewer system.
Non-Invasive Sewer Line Repair Options
Blocked, leaking, corroded or broken pipes are an eventuality of property ownership. Older buildings are especially vulnerable to sewer line issues because of the way pipes weaken as they age. In many cases, the original drain pipe has deteriorated to the point of collapse. When this happens, the only option is to replace the drain line.
Underground sewer repairs can feel like your worst-case scenario – they’re messy, inconvenient, expensive and cause long-term property damage. But did you know digging isn’t the only way to fix pipe problems?
Roto-Rooter Ventura offers trenchless sewer line repair – an advanced plumbing technique that offers quicker turnaround times with minimal damage because it eliminates the need to dig a traditional construction trench.
For situations where a pipe has completely collapsed, there’s a dig-free repair option called pipe bursting. This method allows a technician to fracture the damaged pipe outward using a conical bursting head, while simultaneously pulling a new pipe into place in the same cavity of the original sewer pipe. The entire process takes place almost completely underground, eliminating the need to dig up and replace the sewer line.
With trenchless repairs, all new replacement pipes are estimated to last for decades and are code-compliant, leak-proof and resistant to future damage from roots or chemicals.
