What Causes Sewer & Drain Failures?
Drains and sewers are some of the largest pipes in a home’s plumbing network. They can fail after some time, and there are many reasons why these failures occur. Still, it is helpful for homeowners to be aware of the ones that result from human error, so that they can attempt to avoid them.
It is common for pipes to shift when the earth moves. The resulting pressure is enough to cause a small break, or even a large hole. Tangled root systems, drawn by the water in the pipes, can also crush these essential plumbing networks. However, other reasons for pipe failure relate to human mistakes. For example, pouring down store-bought drain cleaners often causes pipes to erode faster than they should. The harsh chemicals inside these over-the-counter cleaners may temporarily clear pipes but eventually eat away the interiors.
Sewers and drains are such critical components of the plumbing system that it is important to fix them right away. The longer you wait to resolve issues, the more disruption to daily life. Our dedicated technicians are ready to put a quick stop to any trouble caused by clogged sewer drains.
Some methods we use to fix clogged drains and sewers include:
- Using high-resolution camera and video examinations to pinpoint where the clog is and determine the thickness of the blockage
- Applying a powerful jet of water to clear out obstacles
- Removing root systems that entangled themselves in and around the pipes
- Repairing or replacing any parts of the pipes that have sprung a leak or become eroded
The Benefits of Video Inspections for Sewers & Drains
A major problem of having a broken or leaky pipe is the fact that it is hard to identify where the issue is occurring. Sewers and drains are located deep beneath the ground or the foundations of a house. This is why it is helpful to have a video camera inspection performed by professional plumbers. When these devices are inserted into the pipes, plumbers can tell exactly what is causing the issue. Then, our experts at Blau Sudden Service can advise the next steps to take.
