Sewer Repair

Fully Qualified Sewer Repair, Cleaning and Installation

Sewer repair, sewer line cleaning, and sewer installation are a few of the more complex projects we tackle at Downtown Plumbing. We have the professional plumbing experience to know the requirements for allowable types of sewer pipe and the specific permits needed to perform sewer repair. Downtown Plumbing uses the newest pipeline video inspection tools. This non-destructive method of assessing root and other damage allows us to find the exact location of the problem and fix it efficiently with minimal digging. So don’t call just anyone, call the local plumbing professionals at Downtown Plumbing. We understand local sewer repair better than anyone.

How Do I Know That I Need Sewer Repair?

Sewer repair is needed when your sewer is backed up or starts leaking. This is probably one of the most unpleasant plumbing situations you can encounter. Because sewer repair is much more complicated than something like faucet repair, you really need qualified plumbing technicians who know what they are doing. Depending on the condition of your sewer pipe, a section of sewer may have to be replaced. To determine if the plumber needs to replace a section of sewer pipe, or the entire sewer pipe, a video inspection is performed to assess the condition of your sewer.

Video Inspection Reveals the Problem

Correct sewer repair requires a video inspection. A camera is inserted into the interior of the sewer pipe and sends back live video of the condition and the blockage in your Brooklyn area sewer line. Our video inspection equipment is also equipped with locators to determine the location and depth of the sewer line damage from above ground. This allows for the experts at Downtown Plumbing to complete spot repairs, if possible. Video inspections reveal whether your plumbing has root intrusion, separated pipes, offset pipe joints, or a broken pipe. The pipe must be draining to be able to view it, so unclogging may be a necessary part of the sewer repair in these cases.

Addressing Common Sewer Problems

Sewer repair is necessary to remedy certain common problems in older sewage lines. Generally speaking, unless there is some kind of accident, sewer line damage happens gradually, over time. One of the main causes of sewer line damage occurs when tree roots grow through cracked sewer lines. One small crack in an old sewer line can make it the target for a root system to take hold and block or destroy the pipe. You can use sewer line cleaning to remove roots, but this is only a temporary solution. If you do have older pipes, sewer line cleaning may actually damage or destroy them. In some cases, the best plumbing solution involves new sewer installation with other plumbing materials like plastic pipes.
