The Dangers of Sewer Back-up
Sewer back-up may occur suddenly, causing damage to your home, and the risk of disease to your family. Common signs of a developing sewer clog include:
Sewer back-up from a drain
Gurgling drains. For example, if doing laundry causes the toilet drain to percolate it can be a red flag warning of a clogging sewer pipe.
Clogs can occur in the main sewer line, or any of the secondary lines. When problems occur throughout the home, there will be an issue in the main sewer line. If the problem relates to a secondary line, the issue will be confined to that location only. Due to the risk of disease, only trust sewer repair to licensed plumbers in Fort Worth.
Maintenance and Repair
Allowing clogs to develop into full blown blockage can result in burst pipes, or can result in back-up. Hydro-jetting will remove clogs and blockage, though if pipe damage is present, repair will be necessary by a licensed plumber.
The Video Pipe Inspection
A video pipe inspection provides the plumber a clear view of the problem, pipe condition and is performed with a small waterproof, high-resolution camera with light is attached to a flexible fiber optic cable, and a monitor. Common causes of drain and/or sewer issues the video pipe inspection can reveal include:
Blockage due to tree roots or other objects that are restricting the flow
Cracked, crushed, collapsed or broken pipe requiring repair or replacement
Offset pipe occurs due to shifting soil, settling, and other causes
Pipe corrosion and other effects of age causing collapse and restriction of flow
Type of clog
Bellied pipe occurs when the ground sinks, resulting in a swag where paper, waste and other debris can collect
