THOUSAND OAKS SEWER REPAIR
The most used pipes in any home are the ones that form the sewer line. Sinks, toilets, showers, and appliances like laundry or dishwashing machines send all the used water through these pipes until it reaches the city sewer main and is then sent to a water treatment facility. This constant usage takes a toll on the pipes, and failures will happen sooner or later.
How to know when a sewer line is failing
There are several warning signs that can alert you when a sewer line is having problems. Drains working slowly are one of them, and this is usually caused by a clog in the line. If there is water backing up from the drains then you can be certain that something is wrong and needs to be corrected as soon as possible.
Keep an eye on the toilet’s water level. If you notice the water level dropping without flushing, there could be a leak along the sewer line.
Foul odors are another typical sign that a sewer line is broken. Raw sewage has a unique smell, similar to rotten eggs, that is easily noticeable.
How to identify the problem
If you suspect that the sewer pipes in your property need to be repaired, gives us a call and we will take care of everything. As the old saying goes, information is power, and being able to identify the problem and its exact location will make it much easier to repair.
To do this, we inspect the sewer line with a remotely-operated video camera. It is sent into the sewer line, and as it travels along the pipes it transmits a live video feed that is closely monitored by our technician. Clogs, cracks, or loose pipe joints are noted so we can decide the best way to repair the line. Video cameras take out the guesswork when identifying an issue in the sewer, which could save you time and money.
How to solve the problem
If there is something wrong with your sewer line, let us know. We have seen almost everything that can happen with the pipes, and are familiar with the most recent plumbing processes that can rehabilitate them. When you call us and ask for a sewer repair in Ventura County, be it at your home or business, after performing the video inspection we will explain to you in detail what we discovered and what needs to be done to get the sewer line working again.
For example, clogs are removed with a process called hydro-jetting, where high-pressure water streams are used to flush away the obstruction. Cracks and holes in the pipes can be fixed with a new plumbing technique that requires minimal digging, where a liner is inserted into the pipes to seal leaks and replace missing or broken sections. And roots that could be slowing down the water flow will also be removed by hydro-jetting, or with a heavy-duty plumbing snake that cuts them into small pieces.
