The main function of a sewage system is to collect all the waste water produced in your home and transport it to a facility where it can be treated. When this system becomes clogged due to any reason, it fails to function properly. This is when a sewage backup occurs for which you will have to seek a sewage backup service.
Since a sewage backup can lead to a number of problems, you should call us so that we can immediately tend to the situation and minimize and/or prevent damage.
While we reach your house
We respond to all the requests at our earliest, but it will still be a few minutes until our team can reach your house. As you wait for us to arrive, do not flush your toilet or operate the dishwasher in our house. You should also avoid taking a bath or turning on any of the taps.
As soon as we reach your place, here is what we do.
We inspect all the sewage lines of your house and identify the source of the problem.
If the main line appears to be clear and we have access to a cleanout, we will use a camera to examine the service line. In some cases, the cleanout is not suitable for cleaning, especially if the site is small. Should this be the case, we will just try to unplug the blockage.
We will also cleanup your site and fix damages.
Techniques which we use
Our sewage line techniques can be divided into three main types. We will use whichever one is suitable in your case.
In this method, we construct a trench so that we can access the damaged portion of the pipe. We then use a backhoe for opening the line.
Trench less Method
In this method, we construct small holes around the location of the damaged pipe. We use your damaged server line as a guide and with our hydraulic machine, we pull in another pipe of the same size. In the process, the damaged pipe is also broken.
In this technique, we repair a damaged line, by passing another pipe through it. This restores proper functioning once again. Generally, we use epoxy as the material for creating a new inner wall in the old line.
Causes of a sewage backup
A sewage backup can be caused by a number of problems, which are outlined below.
The accumulation of solid and other sort of debris in the line; overtime, they build up and block flow. This includes the oil, grease, fat, hair, paper towels, bones, and other similar items.
The infiltration of tree root; if there is a leak or crack in the line, tree roots can enter through them and block the water flow.
Structural defects; pipes suffer from a number of defects which can cause sewage backup. These include holes, cracks, protruding laterals, open joints and the like.
