The Thankless Job Of A Sewer Line
Homeowners know that there are many drains in their homes, from sinks and showers to toilet drains. But what most are unaware of is that all of these drains converge into one sewer line. And that is the only pipe that carries all the dirty water and waste from your home to the city sewer system. So when there is something wrong with your sewer line, the results can be a horrendous mess inside your home.
Common Sewer Line Problems
Knowing that the sewer line for your home is buried in your yard, it is easy to imagine some times when the pipe could be damaged. For example, any extensive digging for new plantings, utility work in the neighborhood could result in physical damage to your home’s sewer line. The other common cause of damage to this essential pipe is from tree roots. As the roots grow around the pipe, they eventually exert enough pressure to crack or even crush it. When the line is damaged, not only does sewage begin to seep out into your yard, but dirt enters the pipe and creates a blockage, stopping the flow of waste to the sewer system.
That brings us to the other common reason for a sewer line issue, a clog. Clogs can form due to damage to the sewer pipe and as a result of something inside the pipe. As a rule, the only thing that should be washed down a drain is water. And the only things that should ever be flushed are toilet paper and human waste. Any other objects are likely to get stuck in the sewer line and create a nasty clog. When a clog blocks the majority of your home’s sewer line, the dirty water and waste will soon be backing up into your tubs, showers, and other drains.

Professional drain and sewer line cleaning is the only guaranteed solution for a clogged sewer line. The pros at 911 Plumbing & Heating use a high-pressure jet of water to blast away the clog and remove any sticky scum stuck to the inside of the sewer line. This prevents future clogs and increases the flow inside the pipe. Proactively scheduling an annual sewer line cleaning is the best way to ensure that you will never face a flood of sewage again.
Sewer Line Repair
Like all pipes, your home’s sewer line can become damaged due to physical impact or deterioration from old age. The damaged pipe will begin to leak sewage into your yard, which is typically how you discover the issue and why you call 911 Plumbing & Heating. Our team will arrive quickly, armed with a tiny waterproof camera to locate any damage to your sewer line and provide you with repair options.
With the camera deployed in the sewer line, our techs can see any cracks, blockages, or damage to the sewer pipe. We can also determine if the damage is confined to a small section or if the entire pipe is decaying. From the images we receive from the camera, we will recommend either a Great Falls, MT sewer line repair or a replacement.
Trenchless Sewer Line Services
As you can imagine, digging up a sewer line will take some time and leave a considerable scar on your property. However, in many cases, our pros can use a trenchless sewer line repair or replacement process to decrease the damage to your yard and the service cost. Both processes involve inserting an epoxy coated liner into the damaged or worn-out sewer line that will cure and form a new, single-piece pipe. The advantage of this technique is that only a small hole must be excavated to insert the sleeve, so the repair or replacement is more cost-effective and less labor-intensive.
