Why Does My Drain Need to Be Repaired or Replaced?
Taking good care of the drains in your house is super important. Imagine if your main drain isn’t fixed right or replaced correctly. You might end up with something nobody wants, raw sewage coming back up through your drains. This isn’t just gross, it can also cause a lot of damage to your home.
This is why paying attention to early warning signs you need drain repair is essential. Maybe your sink is draining a little slowly, or perhaps there is a weird smell in your house. These could be the first signs that something is up with your drains. If you catch these signals early, you can stop bigger sewer and plumbing problems before they start.
Ways to Repair a Main Drain
There are several ways to go about drain pipe repair for the main drain. Our team of certified plumbers offer superior drain solutions for homeowners in areas such as Abington, Edison, Baltimore, Upper Darby, Trenton, and Allentown. The source of your drain problems generally dictates which repair method we will use.
If your main drain line has a leak or breaks, a trench may have to get dug around the damaged portion of the line. However, digging isn’t always necessary during drain repairs because trenchless sewer repair is also an option. To begin the trenchless repair process, you must first find the damaged part of the main drain line causing the leak.
To do this, our technicians can perform a sewer camera inspection to enter and explore the pipe until they find the damage. Once we find the damage, we can use either pipe lining or pipe bursting to repair the problem.
Pipe lining involves inserting an inflatable tube covered in epoxy into the pipe. When the tube reaches the damaged portion of the pipe, we can inflate it. While inflated, the tube will press up against the damaged part of the pipe, applying the epoxy in the process.
As the epoxy hardens, it will repair the damage to the pipe. After we repair the damage, we will deflate and remove the inflatable tube. If the damage is too severe for the pipe lining to work, we can move on to a different method.
Pipe bursting involves sending a cone-shaped device through the pipe. The device does two things. First, it destroys the existing pipe. Second, it immediately replaces the old pipe with a new pipe. If neither pipe lining or pipe bursting can effectively fix the problem, then traditional main drain pipe replacement may be necessary.
If your main drain line is only clogged and not leaking or broken, then other drain pipe repair methods may be available, including drain cleaning or snaking the pipe using power rodding. Hydro jetting could also be an option. The hydro jetting plumbing method involves using high-pressure water jets to clear clogs, blockages, and debris from the drain line.
What Is Power Rodding?
Power rodding is a drain cleaning technique that comes designed to clear out stubborn clogs in your pipes. It’s more powerful and effective than traditional drain snaking methods. The power rodder is a machine with a long, flexible metal rod.
The end of the rod has sharp cutting blades that can cut through tough blockages like tree roots, solid grease build-ups, or other hard-to-remove clogs. The power rodding device gets fed into the pipe, and an electric motor then rotates the blades. As the blades spin, they cut through the clog and clear the pipe.
What makes power rodding an effective drain repair solution is its ability to reach further into the pipe and cut through heavier blockages that traditional methods might not be able to handle. It’s a powerful tool in the hands of a skilled plumber, especially for severe clogs or blockages in your drain system.
Hydro jetting is a plumbing method used to clean blocked or slow sewage lines. It involves the use of high-pressure water jets to remove build-ups and blockages in pipes. These water jets are powerful enough to deal with even the most stubborn clogs.
Our technicians will insert a high-pressure water hose into the affected pipe. The hose has a specialized nozzle that releases water at extreme pressure. As the hose snakes through the pipe, it blasts away the accumulated debris and grime that is causing the blockage. Our professional hydro jetting services can be utilized to remove materials such as grease, scale, and even tree roots that have infiltrated the pipe.
Hydro jetting is highly effective at clearing drains, but it should only be carried out by professionals. It’s not only powerful but also a safe and eco-friendly method to get your drains flowing smoothly again.
