We Repair Sewer Systems & Cleanouts
Sewer lines are the most important but least thought about part of your home plumbing system. Sewer issues disrupt your life and can cause expensive damage to your property, but they can also harm your family’s health. It’s important to call a licensed plumber as soon as you see signs of a sewer problem. Sewer repair can seem daunting because pipes are buried under your yard, home, driveway or landscaping. At Reliant Plumbing, we use camera inspections and advanced non-invasive leak detection to pinpoint the issue and repair your sewer lines in the least invasive way.
Once we identify the source of the clog or leak, our team can efficiently work to resolve the issue. In some instances we use small excavators designed to work within space constraints to save time and money on digging. In other cases, our advanced pipe-lining technology resolves any need to dig at all. Trenchless pipe repair is a relatively new, but very popular method of restoring sewer pipes. This machine coats the inside of your existing pipe and is able to function as if a new pipe was just placed.
We repair sewers all over central Texas including, Austin, San Antonio, Round Rock, Lakeway, Cedar Park, and more. Residential or commercial plumbing, we have experience in both. If you want to know about how we can repair your sewer system, call us and we will be happy to help.
Does Your Sewer System Need Repair?
The most common sign of a sewer in need of repair is a slow drain or repeated clogs in the same area of your home. Look out for gurgling noises in toilets and sinks, foul odors coming from drains, sewage backup or puddles in drains, water coming from a different source than the one you are currently using, and improperly flushing toilets.
If you have one of these symptoms, you’ll need to start by having your sewer line cleaned. Then if your problem happens again, it’s time for a camera inspection to see what’s going on in your sewer line. You likely have an obstruction like roots, an improperly installed sewer system, or a break somewhere in your line.
Our Most Common Sewer Repair Questions
What usually causes damage to sewer lines?
Because much of your sewer system is located beneath your home and yard, pipes can be damaged when your ground shifts due to freezing or moisture. This causes pipes to bulge, crack, or collapse and pipe fittings to loosen. Master Plumber Jason Oliphant spoke to KVUE News about ways to protect your home during freezing temperatures.
Additionally, when sewer systems are made of older materials like clay tile and thin wall PVC, they may break down over time and get smothered by roots. Sections of pipe damaged by roots may be repaired, but root damage throughout could mean a sewer replacement. We offer sewer services for residential and commercial plumbing systems. Give us a call if we can help you with your sewer project.
How do you repair a damaged sewer pipe?
First, our trained plumbers will use advanced plumbing technology to pinpoint the damaged area. Then, we’ll need to access the sewer pipe by tunneling or breaking a section of the slab. Although this sounds complicated, our plumbers are careful to limit the amount of disruption to your property. The plumber will replace the damaged section of pipe with a new pipe or fittings and close up the access point.
