The water system in any home or business is a wonderful thing. It provides water for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and other uses. However, it also produces wastes that must be disposed of through the sewer system. When this system becomes clogged, it needs to be taken care of immediately to prevent sewer backup, mold, and other problems. A plugged sewer line is common in older homes and businesses. When this happens, it is time to call a Sewerologist.

Are There Any Alternatives?
Alternatives for sewer line repair depend on what is causing the problem. This line can be just plugged or permanently damaged by roots, rust, age, frozen water, and a number of other things. Having an expert look at the problem can save time and money with a fast and accurate diagnosis.
A clogged sewer line means it is not possible to use water drains. If the problem is not taken care of, quickly and efficiently, this can mean having to stay in a hotel or other location until the situation is taken care of. Sewerologist make every effort to complete sewer line replacement in one day thus causing as little discomfort as possible.
What Can I Expect?
Upon arrival, an expert plumber will try to clean the sewer line with what is called a “snake”. If that does not work, he or she will make a sewer camera inspection to see what is causing the problem. If it is a blockage, it is often possible to remove this problem with a water jet or with Enzymatic drain cleaners. If a sewer line replacement is required, it will be replaced with a PVC pipe. It is estimated that the PVC pipe, properly installed and maintained, will last approximately 400 years.
