Your sewer line is responsible for draining waste into the city septic system. If the sewer line becomes clogged or damaged, it can cause serious problems such as raw sewage backup and structural damage to your home or business. It is important that any sewer problems be treated as soon as possible. Roseville Plumbing Doctor offers expedient services and solutions which can help you get your sewer lines operating again as quickly as possible.
Causes of Sewer Line Problems
In many cases, sewer line problems are caused by clogs. If this is the case, you will most likely experience slow draining or backup in your toilets as well as other drains. Clogged sewer lines can generally be fixed with methods like sewer snaking or hydro jetting.
If you smell sewage in your home or yard or notice wet spots, then the problem may be a broken or cracked sewer line. This is a very serious problem which can be complicated to fix. Often, the sewer line becomes damaged by tree roots which are drawn to the heat of the sewer line. The roots work their way into the sewer line through the connections and then continue to grow. The roots will generally first cause clogs, but they can also cause the sewer line to crack. In other cases, sewer lines break simply because of age and corrosion.
How to Repair Sewer Lines
Sewer mains are almost always located underground where they are hard to access. In order to repair the sewer line, it may be necessary to completely dig up the sewer line, which may mean damage to your driveway or yard.
At Roseville Plumbing Doctor, we will do everything in our power to make sewer line repair as easy, fast, and unobtrusive as possible. We can use technology like snake cameras to analyze the sewer lines and diagnose the cause of the problem. If possible, we will use trenchless sewer repair methods which do not require any digging. One method of trenchless sewer repair is to slip a new line of pipe into the existing pipe. This can be done quickly and inexpensively.

Your sewer main is located underground, far out of sight and mind. When a problem with your sewer main occurs though, you are sure to notice it right away. Broken sewer mains can cause serious problems like sewage backup, mold growth, and damage to your home’s foundation. Rather than living with sewer problems, you will want to call Roseville Plumbing Doctor for prompt sewer replacement services.
How We Replace Sewer Lines
If your sewer lines are clogged, then we can usually fix the clog with noninvasive methods like snaking. If your sewer line has become cracked, corroded, or burst, then we may need to replace it. This is not a task that should put off, as the sewage problems will only worsen.
In many cases, our Roseville Plumbing Doctor is able to replace sewer lines using trenchless (noninvasive) methods. We thread a deflated flexible pipe into the larger existing sewage pipe. The piping is expanded and its ends are sealed off, creating a brand new sewer line. With this method, absolutely no excavation of your yard or driveway is necessary. It is also much cheaper and faster.
Our Roseville plumbers will also inspect your sewer vent stacks – the part of the sewer system which regulates air flow and gas. This is a rather complex job and we don’t recommend doing it as a DIY project as it involves cutting and handling heavy pieces of cast iron. When you hire Roseville Plumbing Doctor for the job, you can rest assured that our expert plumbers will get the job done right the first time without any hassles or delays.
We always work on a per-job basis, not an hourly rate, so you know exactly what to expect in terms of costs. Call us today for a free estimate and to find out more about sewer replacement options.
