Sewer Line Repair

Sewer Line Repair (Diagnosis)

Usually, the first step is to find the source of the problem by sending a camera down into the piping. This is done by snaking a small video camera through the line, allowing our sewer professional to visually inspect and evaluate the drainpipe and locate the source of the problem. Once our sewer professional has been able to diagnose the problem, he will discuss the problem with you in detail, and help you determine the best approach to your sewer line repair. Whether it’s a simple repair or major replacement, we will explain all options and provide you with up front pricing so you know the exact costs involved before our sewer process begins any work.

Sewer Line Clog (Unclog Sewer Line)

Most homeowners tend to not think about their sewer lines, that is, until there is a problem. A sewer line clog could lead to raw sewage backing up out of the drains, which can quite possibly lead to significant damage to the home. Common red flags when there is a clogged line are: gurgling sounds that come from drains and toilets; water backing up out of, or pooling around, drains or toilets; or the smell of raw sewage coming from drains. A clog can occur in the main sewer line or one of the secondary lines. When you notice problems with your sewer line, contact H&N Plumbing for affordable sewer line cleaning (unclogging).

Sewer line cleaning cost averages about $135 per line. When you want to hire a professional plumber to unclog your sewer line, schedule an appointment with H&N Plumbing.

    Pipe bursting is where small access holes are made where the damaged underground pipe starts and ends. By using the broken sewer pipe as a guide a hydraulic pipe bursting machine pulls full-size replacement pipe through the old path and breaks up the damaged pipe at the same time. This method is a faster process than open cut methods and can replace cast iron, clay, terra cotta, PVC and concrete pipes.

    Pipe Relining is the process of repairing damaged sewer pipes by creating a pipe within a pipe to restore full function and flow. Epoxy relining materials mold to the inner walls of the existing sewer pipe and create a smooth and tough new inner wall.
