Sewer Repair Puyallup

A clogged sewer line occurs when the main pipe gets clogged from one or more other connecting pipes throughout the premises. When a main pipe gets restricted in this way, it can cause irreversible damage to the rest of the property. It is among the most dreaded calamities that a homeowner can face. The thought of a clogged sewer line that sends wastewater backing up into the home is enough to make anyone shudder. The mess and nasty smell make it unpleasant to be in your home, and the damage to your belongings as well as to the structure can be significant. Unfortunately, due to the severity of risks involved with this type of situation, this would require a professional hand to assess and fix. 

The most common cause of a clogged sewer line is grease or other oils being poured down the sink and cooling down as it flows further down the pipe. The sticky build-up then catches passing debris and solids such as hair or other items that may have been dropped. The flow of wastewater becomes increasingly restricted until it is finally completely blocked and there is a clog in your main sewer line that causes damage to all other connecting lines. 

While there are small things you can do to mitigate this, the only solution for a clogged or damaged sewer line is to turn off the water supply completely at the main water source and request the assistance of a trained professional. Unfortunately, a pipe issue such as this implies that other pipes will more than likely be clogged as well, and the more you try to use them, the more the main issue persists. The experts at Pristine Plumbing will utilize the latest technology to diagnose and locate the problem. If necessary, we may employ the use of a small video camera designed to travel through your pipes in order to locate and visually inspect the exact nature of the problem.

If we find that the nature of your issue is a clog caused by grease or tree roots, the best solution may be a method known as hydro-jetting; which uses pressurized water to blast away any foreign object constricting the flow of water.

On the other hand, should we discover that the problem is a damaged or collapsed sewer line, a repair or complete replacement may be required. Fortunately, we have several methods to complete the job that require a minimal amount of digging. That means the repair can be done without significantly damaging your yard, landscaping or paved driveway.

Sewer Pipe Repair Puyallup

How can you tell if your sewage system is having issues and may need cleaning or repair? Here are some of the most common tell-tale signs that your sewer may be clogged or damaged:

  • Sewage backups in your home's sinks, drains, toilets, tub, or shower
    -This may look like dirty water or sludge coming up through the drain
  • Re-occurring clogs in multiple pipes or drains in your home
    -I.e. consistent plumbing and pipe issues in other areas of the property
  • Unidentifiable odors in your home that don't have an obvious source
    -Smells like sewage or mildew/mold coming from vents or walls
  • Water coming back out of the drains or hookups for your sinks, bathtub, drains, or washing machine
    -This issue usually also pairs with the inability to flush your toilet completely
  • There are gurgling sounds coming from your toilet or sink
    -This can also look like bubbles or foam appearing around drains
  • Increased humidity in your home or mold appearing on walls and corners
    -Because of the health risk associated with this issue, immediate assistance is necessary
  • Increase of rodents and pests in or around your home
    -Along with the sewer repair, this is an issue that must be addressed by pest control in order to completely fix it
  • Soggy patches of grass in your yard or extra vibrant plant life
    -While it may look beautiful, an extra green or lush lawn with squishy patches can mean that there might be sewer damage underground

If you have any of these symptoms occurring, we can help determine where the issue is coming from or refer you to a great leak detection company first if necessary. Once we know where the problem has occurred in your home or underground pipes, we can use traditional or trenchless sewer repair methods to get to the damaged pipe or area, and then repair or repipe the affected portion. Trenchless repair is a faster and cheaper method that is often sufficient for many sewer repair needs, but if the damage is widespread throughout the sewer system and costs you hundreds in excess water bills, sometimes digging everything out and replacing the system is the best choice.
