Rainy weather in the Greater Seattle area is nothing new, but all that moisture can have serious consequences on your plumbing system. Extra water in the soil can encourage tree roots to invade your sewer pipes and force raw sewage and wastewater back up into your home or office. Not only is this unhealthy, but it can cause extensive and costly damage to your property.
The Signs of a Sewer Backup on Your Property
Paying attention to the early warning signs of a sewer backup can help you get ahead of severe issues. If you notice foul odors, gurgling sounds, water backing up into your drains, or toilets not flushing like they should, you could have a clog in your sewer line.
The Sewer Pipe Repair Process in Action
If you suspect that your sewer is backing up into your Seattle property, call the professional team at Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter immediately. Our sewer pipe repair services include:
Sewer camera inspection. Our high-quality technicians can send a high-resolution camera through your pipes to diagnose the problem and offer the best solution for your needs.
Cured-in-place pipe lining. Another possible solution is creating a new pipe within your existing pipe. After cleaning out your sewer pipeline, technicians can insert an epoxy-resin soaked wool sleeve into the pipes that will harden into a seamless new pipe over time.
Pipe bursting. One possible solution is pipe bursting, a trenchless process where our technicians use innovative equipment to blast through your underground pipes and pull new pipes into place.
The Benefits of Trenchless Technology in Washington
The sewer pipe inspection, repair, and replacement options that we offer utilize modern trenchless technology. The trenchless sewer line fixes offer several benefits over traditional repair and replacement methods:
Saves you money. Traditional sewer line repair and replacement required extensive excavation through your property that could cause a lot of damage to your lawn, driveway, landscaping, foundation, and other property features. With trenchless technology, digging is confined to a small access hole. Eliminating the need for a large crew to excavate and repair all the damage associated with that can greatly reduce your overall project costs.
Saves you time. Traditional excavating methods shut down your property for up to weeks at a time, disrupting your personal and professional productivity and keeping you from enjoying life as you knew it. Trenchless technology allows our technicians to complete the job within hours, so you can get back to normal much sooner.
Saves the environment. Traditional digging stirred up a larger area of your property, potentially exposing you to dangerous toxins in the dirt. With much less digging required, trenchless technology helps protect you from negative health consequences. The epoxy resin used in our cured-in-place pipe lining is also non-hazardous, so you can feel good about keeping your repairs environmentally friendly.
