How do I know if my sewer is in need of repair?
Sewer lines are bound to have issues with all of the water and debris we put in them, so a clog every few years is only maintenance and nothing to fear. A repair like that should be quick with your local Dallas Plumber using a sewer drain machine on the clog. However if your issues are once a year or less a repair or replacement is needed. The first step for a repair is having the plumber perform what is called a sewer video camera inspection. This inspection is where we “the plumber” would place a small camera into your drain pipe and show you a full report of what is going on inside. In Dallas the typical problem a plumber can find is Back fall- this is where the sewer line is pointing in the wrong direction typically caused by house settling, improper installation by the previous plumbers, or sink holes under the pipe. Sewer Breaks- A sewer break in you pipe is from either rot, corrosion, or a shift in earth or foundation, all very typical disasters in the Dallas, Texas enviroment. Sewer Collapse- This is the most destructive and usually leaves the sewer line completely useless unless you plumber either makes a repair on the plumbing or an entire sewer replacement is performed by the plumbing company like ours Precision Plumbing Dallas.
