Finding Sewer and Water Line Experts to Prevent Sewer Problems

A water pipe and sewer pipe are two critical parts of the drainage system both in commercial buildings and more importantly your home. The former supplies clean water for drinking, cleaning and washing, while the later drains all the waste-water into the sewer. These two lines, therefore, require regular maintenance and possibly small preventative repairs. If left unchecked, water pipes can break or leak creating significant sewer problems, causing you unnecessary, expensive and time-consuming repairs. It is, however, not an easy task, and you may be required to engage an expert in Sewer and Water Line Replacement.


What Causes Blocked Sewer Pipes?

Experts at Horizon Services have identified various signs that can help you detect if your water line is faulty. They include cloudy water, increased water bill, settling soil, frozen pipes and low water pressure. Blockage of sewer pipes can result in raw sewage flowing and flooding on the passages or even in the house.

The stoppage of both water and sewer lines can be caused by many factors including:

  • Growth of tree roots into the pipes
  • Oil, fat, and grease that is poured through the kitchen sinks
  • Poor garbage disposal
  • Mud or yard waste
  • Sanitary products like baby diapers
  • Collapsed or broken sewer lines
  • Unauthorized constructions

Diagnosing and Solving Sewer Problems

Sewer and Water Line Replacement is a technical task that requires expertise in building and construction as well as water engineering. The experts have the equipment and skills necessary to diagnose and solve the problem. They can identify the fixtures that are served by the blocked line and determine the best location to rod from, and the type of rodding machine to be used. They can then excavate, extract the cables and resolve the sewer problem. The methods used to open and maintain sewer lines include jetting, rodding, video inspection and location, chemicals and excavation.


Hiring The Right Contractor For The Job

All in all, it is important that you hire a company, like Horizon Services, that is licensed and has competent and highly skilled staff. They should be able to replace the damaged lines without causing more damage or discomfort. You also need to know the cost of hiring them to be sure it fits in your budget. Reading online reviews can be very helpful in selecting the right experts for your specific job.
