Drain & Sewer Cleaning

Clogged drains are inevitable over the life span of your pipes and plumbing because no one is flawless about what they put down their drains — and even if you are, nature will find a way to cause problems.

Drain- and sewer-line cleaning includes:

  1. Inspection: What seems to be a clog isn’t always a clog in your lines. It could be an external blockage.
  2. Clog removal: This can involve snaking the clog or even cutting pipe sections if necessary.
  3. Cleaning: We have all the necessary tools to clean your drain thoroughly to scour away stubborn buildup and prevent future problems. Other resources our plumbing professionals may recommend include:
    • Bio-Clean: Toxic drain cleaners can reduce the life span of good plumbing pipes and poison the environment. Bio-Clean is an alternative treatment that uses enzymes and bacteria to break down waste in your pipes.
    • RootX: This is most effective on minor root infiltration in drain and sewer lines, septic systems, etc.
    • Route 66 drain-cleaning machine: Not much can stand up to cables rotating at 400 rpm.

Drain and sewer line problems are caused by:

  • Age
  • Buildup/mineral deposits
  • City-sewer backups (You’re responsible for maintaining the lines that run from the city connection to your home.)
  • Clay pipes
  • Clogs
  • Construction
  • Poorly installed plumbing
  • Rapid ground freeze/thaw
  • Shifting ground/earth
  • Tree roots

Sewer Repair FAQs

How do I know I need sewer repair or replacement?

When you have a problem with your sewer line, you may notice things like frequent drain clogs or slow drains, foul odors from the drains, gurgling or bubbling noises, sounds from one drain when another is used, or a lack of water in the toilet bowl/trap.

If the problem is bad enough, waste may back up and spill out of floor drains or low-lying tub and shower drains. Call a professional plumber like our experts at Team Andreas for help with sewer line problems. We can assess the situation and determine if a small section of the sewer line can be repaired or if the entire line should be replaced.

How long does it take to fix my sewer line?

Sewer line repairs or replacements may take a few hours to a few days depending on the extent of the problem, the repair method, soil conditions, and other factors. Replacing only a small section of pipe or a damaged fitting may take a few hours to one day, while longer sections can take several days.

When possible, trenchless pipe repair can be a good option for fast sewer line repairs with minimal damage to your yard. We offer standard and trenchless sewer repair services in the Carbon County area.

How long will a sewer line last?

Cast iron sewer lines can last over 75 years, though excessive corrosion can shorten their service life. PVC sewer lines can last up to 100 years, while older clay or Orangeburg pipe may only last 50 to 60 years. If your home is over a few decades old, it may have clay or Orangeburg pipes with a shorter service life.

When you need a sewer line replacement, turn to our experts at Andreas Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. We can offer the best solutions for your needs and budget.

What causes sewer line damage?

The most common cause of sewer line damage is old or defective materials. Erosion or settling soils are also a concern, dislodging or crushing the pipes, as well as tree roots, which exploit small holes or cracks to invade your sewer pipes in search of water and nutrients.

Other common causes of pipe damage include improper installation, heavy loads above the pipes, and frost upheaval.
