Sewer Camera Inspections+

Our sewer line cameras can be used for inspection of your main line.

These specialized cameras help us to discern between a mere blockage and a major problem with the structural integrity of the line, such as a broken or collapsed portion of the line. This save a lot of time and money because no digging or heavy equipment is used. (Click here to read about our Sewer Line Repair).

Knowing what is going on in your sewer line can provide you peace of mind. We can locate any potential problem areas and make recommendations on what the camera shows. We also have the ability to provide you with a DVD copy of the inspection.

Sewer Line Repair and Replacement+

While many stoppages can be handled with a drain cleaning machine, sometimes we find that the main drain is broken and needs repair.

Drain lines can be affected by tree roots, shifting earth, ground water, etc. Our experts can electronically locate the affected area and dig down to make the necessary repairs.

Often it is more cost effective to replace the sewer line at the first sign of trouble rather than to continually clear the line year after year. If the sewer line repair is not addressed the potential for a back up into your home is always a possibility. We offer conventional replacement, trenchless replacement, and if your drain line problem is caught early enough, pipe lining may be an option.  (Click here to read more about our trenchless sewer replacement).

Trenchless Repair – Pipe Bursting and Lining+

Trenchless sewer replacement is an option that customers love.

There is minimal disruption to landscaping and a shortened job time, which are two of the biggest reasons why people opt for trenchless repair. Our high-tech pipe bursting equipment can install a new sewer line under retaining walls, patios, driveways and allow for replacement in places where conventional digging may be cumbersome or not possible at all. All we need are two relatively small holes on your property and we can usually wrap up the job in a few days.

If your damaged sewer line is caught soon enough and a few other criteria are met another trenchless option is pipe lining. A high strength polymer lining is pushed through your existing sewer pipe and cured in place. Within one day the new pipe is ready to use. This new pipe is as strong as a conventional sewer line and will provide years of worry free service.
