A sewer and drain system is a crucial aspect of your property. With use, property owners tend to deal with many issues concerning their sewers and drains, and are looking for ways to make the problems go away. If you’re facing ongoing or repetitive issues with your drains and sewers, it may well be time to have it replaced.
Repair or Replace Drains and Sewers?
With routine maintenance, you should experience fewer issues that demand repair. Routine repairs can help avoid major drain issues, so when you notice clogs, deal with it right away. If you see backflow coming into your home, you should call the professionals right away. They will do a thorough investigation to determine the best cause of action.
Signs You May Need Sewer and Drain Replacement
- Clogs in toilets, tubs or sinks
If you’re experiencing clogs and sewage or water backflow, it is a sign that you have some form of drain or sewer problems.
An example would be when water backs up in your sink or tub when you flush the toilet.
- Slow drainage
If your tubs and sinks drain slowly, you may have a problem with your drain system. This is one of the first symptoms to appear and if it only happens with one drain, it’s probably a simple clog. If it happens with all your drains, it is likely a bigger problem caused by a partially or completely collapsed line.
- Raw sewage odor
A variety of issues could cause a raw sewage odor to arise, including a leak or a clog that is causing sewer backup.
What to Do If You Need Sewer and Drain Replacement
Let Ridgeway Mechanical be your first port of call when you need sewer and drain replacement. Our expert plumbers deal with these issues daily and have the experience to quickly diagnose and repair or replace malfunctioning parts of your sewer system. Our team offers the following services:
- Video Sewer Inspection and Problem Location
If you are experiencing issues with your sewer or drain lines, if you want a maintenance check-up, video sewer inspection offers a solution. The in-line camera will allow our team to inspect the inside of the pipes to see whether there is damage caused by ground settling, age, or tree root infiltration. Since there are no trenches to be dug, your pipes can be inspected without any more damage, allowing you to make an informed decision as to repairs and replacement.
- Root Removal
When left untreated, tree or plant roots can infiltrate your underground pipes, causing blockages, cracks and ultimately collapsed pipes. If your pipes are beyond repair (root removal and pipe patching), you will need to have them replaced.
- Sewer and Drain Replacement Service
When roots grow in your sewer lines, or when the ground settles and causes pipes to collapse, repair may be a viable option. However, in many cases replacement is the best option to guarantee optimal flow and to prevent unsanitary sewage backups that might jeopardize the safety of your home and family. Replacement is also necessary if your pipes are damaged by corrosion, or if drain snaking or water jetting does not work. Not sure if you need sewer and drain replacement?
