Importance and Benefits of Professional Repair Services

Most sewer-related plumbing problems don’t get better on their own. Our experts have done it all when it comes to sewer line repair. We address the cause of the problem and choose safe and effective methods.

Our sewer repair services prevent damage to your home or facility and protect your property and the environment. Each member of our team maintains up-to-date knowledge of the best sewer repair techniques such as epoxy sewer pipe lining, and we work quickly to restore the full functionality of your sewer pipe.

The Process

Our sewer pipe repairs start with a sewer camera inspection. Once we identify the type of problem, its location, and the extent of the issue, we select the best repair method for the situation. Our epoxy pipe coating equipment makes use of an existing pipe access point for entry and exit. We may need to create an exit point, which only requires excavating a small pit. The equipment makes some noise, and we must turn off your water supply during the repair process. Our repair methods include lining, powder coating, spot repair, segment replacement, and even a full trenchless pipe replacement when needed. The duration of the repair process lasts from a few hours to up to two days, including the inspection and sign-off by local authorities.

Big Causes of Sewer Line Failure

Let a plumber in Alexandria, VA, from our crew take care of your sewer-related concern right away. Sewer line failure most commonly results from:

  • Tree root intrusion
  • Obstructions
  • Corrosion
  • Cracks
  • Shifted or compacted soil
  • Mineral scale

In most cases of sewer line failure, our technicians restore the pipe with a long-lasting trenchless sewer repair. We suggest a complete replacement if your sewer line collapsed or has so much corrosion that a pipe relining won’t suffice.
