Pipe lining is one of the most widely used methods of sewer repair. It does not involve excavation and is generally a less stressful experience for the property owner. To keep things streamlined and orderly, Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter has established a process that helps us prepare so we can perform sewer repair in Tacoma, WA with optimal results.

Here’s how we preface our sewer repair services.


One of the primary concerns that a sewer pipe line repair aims to address is how well the new lining will fit into the existing pipe, and whether or not there are other things that need to be done before we replace sewer line. In any case, our team will still be doing a thorough evaluation of the pipes and the extent of the damage, as well as survey the area where the worksite will be located.

Sewer Camera Inspection

Before we proceed with the sewer pipe line repair, we’ll first do a sewer camera inspection so that our technicians can see what’s causing blockages or damages. Some of the culprits can be tree root intrusion, grease clogs, or broken pipes. Once we determine the cause, we’ll be able to strategize how to carry out the repairs.

Cleaning the Pipes

Drain cleaning can be done in conjunction with a sewer repair service. When there’s no debris blocking our view or access to the pipes, our technicians will be able to better evaluate whether the damage can be addressed with repairs or if a sewer line replacement would be more appropriate.

Once all the preparations have been made, and existing or potential problems that can hinder the repair process are taken care of, the Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter will then be able to proceed with the pipe restoration service.

If you are searching for a top-rated sewer repair company, give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.
