Methods for Drain Repair

When drain clogs or pinhole leaks are left unattended for too long, they tend to create larger issues that can be much more problematic to address. For instance, a main line sewer clog from corroded sediment build-up will eventually develop into a much more serious backflow problem that could possibly even flood your basement. Having sewage reenter your home isn’t just a smelly and gross disaster — it’s a very serious health hazard. You’ll need to call in the experts right away. A 3 Mountains plumber will arrive at your home and perform one of the following:

  1. Sewer Camera Inspection– With a sewer camera inspection, you can pinpoint the exact issues in your sewer system and act accordingly. A camera tipped cable is threaded through the main access port in your home, and the interior of the pipe is displayed on an external montior. You might find that there are tree roots in your sewer line that have caused an obstruction, or you might discover that some underground pipes are made with outdated materials that have corroded past repair. Either way, the diagnosis will be quick, painless, and exact.
  2. Water Jetting (Hydrojetting)– Not only can high pressure water jetting blast away the toughest obstructions in your plumbing system, but they can also restore pipes that suffer from extensive residue build up problems. Blast away grease, sediment, fat, oils, and other materials that line the interior of your pipes and restrict flow. It’s one of the most modern advancements in the drain repair field, and it doesn’t require any excavation!
  3. Epoxy Lining– In the event that your drains have been damaged beyond repair by clogs and corrosion, you may be able to do the repair without digging up the underground line. This is called a “trenchless” drain or pipe repair because it circumvents the excavation process by essentially building the replacement pipe inside of the old one. The safe and code compliant epoxy liner is poured into a pipe around and inflatable bladder, and once the lining hardens the bladder is deflated and removed.

Not every plumber has access to these methods, since they require updated tools and training. So if you need drain repair and you want a plumber who gives you options, call 3 Mountains Plumbing and request drain repair today!
