If your sewer line is starting to back up, then you need to call a plumber to have them look at it as soon as possible. It will just get worse the longer you wait. When you call the plumber about your broken sewer line, there are various things that they are going to do.
Check the Pipes
The first thing that the plumber is going to do is to look at your pipes. They are going to try to figure out what is going on with them and if it's a clog, a break in the pipe, or some kind of blockage. There are a couple of ways to do this, but the most efficient is to run a camera down the pipes and see what shows up. The plumber can go to the point where the sewer line leaves your house and snake a cable with a camera down the pipe from there. That will let them see what's going on. If they can't find a problem with the sewer line that runs from your house to the main sewer line, they will have to check the lines in your house. But, if they find the problem between your house and the main there are things that they can do to repair the pipes.
Trenchless Pipe Repair
If one of the problems that the plumber finds is that there is a blockage or break in the pipe, they are going to have to repair it. There are different ways to do that. One way to do that is to use a trenchless pipe repair method. With this method, the plumber will send down an expandable pipe. When the expanding section gets to the blockage or break, they will arrange for the pipe to expand and actually break the pipe. The expandable pipe will replace the broken section and act as the pipe. There are a lot of reasons to have your plumber use this kind of sewer line repair. The primary reason is that it's going to be a much quicker repair. You will probably have your working sewer line in a day or so instead of several days or more.
If your sewer line isn't working the way that it should, then you are going to need to have a plumber come in and fix the problem as soon as possible. You don't want to wait for it to get worse.Share
