Sewer Line Clogs

Debris built up in the pipes is the most frequent culprit for sewer line clogs in cast iron drains. You can attempt to clear them with a plunger or a drain snake. If these DIY methods fall short, calling in a professional plumber equipped with specialized tools such as hydro-jetting techniques is necessary, which we have.

Tree Roots

Tree roots infiltrate and damage sewer lines, obstructing the flow of wastewater as they grow. They exploit cracks or joints in the pipes, necessitating repair or replacement of the affected section. Treating the roots with a solution to inhibit their growth may also be required.


Damaged or Collapsed Sewer Lines

Aging, ground movement, or construction activities can cause sewer lines to deteriorate or collapse, leading to backups. Repairing or replacing the damaged section using conventional or trenchless methods is often the solution, which we do.

Heavy Rainfall or Flooding:

Excessive rain or flooding can overwhelm sewer systems, resulting in backups in homes and businesses. Installing a backwater valve can mitigate the risk of sewage backing up into properties during such events.

Preventive Measures

Proactive steps can help prevent sewer backups. Avoid flushing grease, non-biodegradable items, sanitary products and wipes down drains. There is no such thing as flushable wipes. Regular inspections and maintenance of sewer lines can detect and address potential issues before they escalate.
