Have a Clogged Main Sewer Line?
The dreaded clogged main sewer line is one of the worst problems a homeowner can face. Every service in your home is connected to the main sewer line and this is where all wastewater drains out to your septic tank or municipal sewage system. While a clog in your toilet or kitchen sink will only cause a backup in one pipe, a clog in the main sewer line causes a backup in every single service in your home. If you're experiencing unexplainable plumbing issues, you may be in need of professional sewer camera inspection and sewer main line repair.
How Sewer Line Camera Inspection Works
Fixing a main sewer line backup is a complicated issue and there are various causes that could lead to a blockage. The most common are: buildup of hair or other debris, grease stuck in the pipes, broken or slipped pipe joints, a sagging or sunken pipeline, tree penetrations and severe pipe damage caused by age and deterioration. Any Hour Services uses an advanced technology sewer line camera inspection tool to help diagnose the cause of your sewer main line blockage.
Drain cameras allow our expert technicians to correctly diagnose the cause of sewer line blockage and prepare a plan of action. Depending on the severity of damage to the pipe and cause of the initial problem, your Any Hour professional technician will recommend the proper repair or replacement, which may include hydro jetting, trenchless repair or main sewer line replacement.
Your technician will locate the entrance to your sewer main line and feed a cable through the pipe that has a small video camera attached. The camera records live feedback from the inside of the sewer line, allowing the technician to clearly see any type of debris, root damage or other blockage. Sewer cameras can inspect drain lines from one to 200 feet in length, so your drain expert can accurately diagnose any issue. A sewer line camera inspection is important in determining whether or not excavation is necessary. Thankfully, newer trenchless technologies significantly reduce the price of any major sewer line repair and replacement.
Categories of Water Damage
Water damage is a common consequence of emergency plumbing issues. Depending on the service or pipe that has been affected, water damage can be minimal or extremely hazardous to both health and property.
Category 1: Clean Water
Faulty water main lines, leaks or overflows in bathtubs, kitchen sinks or appliance malfunctions are all categorized as category 1 damage. Category 1 refers to clean water and poses minimal health threat due to the absence of bacteria. Quick action is still necessary to prevent additional damage.
Category 2: Grey Water
Grey water comes from clean toilets, dirty dishwashers and washing machines, sump pumps and aquariums. Bacteria that may or may not be harmful is present in this water and proper cleaning and disinfection are necessary to prevent further bacteria overgrowth.
Category 3: Black Water
Category 3 water damage is the worst case scenario as it contains bacteria and pathogens that are incredibly harmful to humans, animals and the environment. Black water comes from broken main sewer lines, raw sewage, soiled toilet bowls, rising floodwaters, seawater and storm surges. Category 3 water damage should always be handled by professionals that have the proper protective equipment.
Any Hour Services has expert solutions for water damage from category 1 to 3
Fast action is essential to prevent extensive property damage and exposure to dangerous pathogens. Damage that occurs in a category 1 can develop to a category 2 situation if not removed promptly due to bacterial growth and spread. With assistance from an emergency plumber company like Any Hour Services, you can reduce water damage and prevent it from getting out of hand.
