Sewer Line Repair and Replacement In Scottsdale, AZ
Your home's sewer lines can last years without any issues at all. That doesn't mean that you'll never have problems, because it's a guarantee you will at some point. That's just the nature of plumbing.
Signs Of Sewer Line TroublesCatching a sewer line issue is vital because the longer it goes undetected, it can cause serious damage to your home and property.
The following warning signs are a good indication that your sewer pipe needs repaired or possibly replaced:
- Drains are backing up
- Gurgling sounds in your drains
- Foul sewage smell
- Water pooling on your lawn
- Septic waste flooding your yard
What Causes Sewer Clogs And BackupsWhenever your toilets or drains begin to back up it doesn't always mean there's a deeper issue that would require a total sewer pipe replacement. Your clogged drain might just need cabled or hydro jetted.
Here are just a few issues that can cause sewer damage:
- Root Intrusion
- Corrosion (Cast Iron Pipes)
- Misaligned Pipe Sections
Whatever the problem causing the blockage, our professionals can install a sewer cleanout, also called a drain cleanout. A cleanout is a direct access point to your main sewer line; it runs underneath your property to connect to the city's main sewer line. The cleanout gives our plumbers the ability to diagnose the problem and start the repair work.
Installing a cleanout is an easier option than going through the roof vent or the toilet. A roof vent is also called a sewer vent and allows gases from your sewer lines to leave your home safely. A roof vent helps you not to smell any sewer odors coming from your toilets or drains.
If you don't have cleanouts, then your home's sewer line is accessible through the roof vent, but trying to get a camera or hydro-jetting equipment through all the twists and turns in pipes can prove challenging.
If going through the roof vents is proving to be too difficult, then toilet access is an option. After removing the toilet from its spot, a camera or cable can be inserted through the hole into the drain pipe to inspect for any clogs or backups.
If you don't have a cleanout, then our plumbing technicians will install one to gain direct access now and in case of future sewer clogs or leaks for easy access. Only a plumbing professional should use the cleanout.
Diagnosing Your Sewer Line Symptoms With Camera InspectionsUnderground pipes are sometimes not easily reached. The good news is that our Scottsdale sewer repair professionals will use camera inspections with our specialized equipment inserted through the cleanout to visually inspect your sewer lines for clogs, cracks, or a broken pipe.
A sewer line camera inspection should be conducted if you experience repeated sewer line backups, slow drains, or clogs. A good rule of thumb for prospective home buyers is to have a sewer line inspection before purchasing a home. Doing so will determine whether there are expensive sewer line repairs needed or if it's a minor issue that the repair cost could be deducted from the home's purchase price.
Another plus for homeowners is that a camera inspection can find those silent leaks that you wouldn't realize otherwise.

Sewer Line ReplacementA plumber is not likely to come out and automatically offer complete sewer line replacement. In fact, we never do. We want to hear from you and the symptoms you're seeing before offering any diagnosis. The issues you're having could be easily fixed with a sewer line cleaning using a cable that's inserted into the cleanout or hydro-jetting.
When it comes to sewer line replacement, a broken sewer line or older pipes could warrant a complete replacement. A wide range of old homes are known for having cast iron, Orangeburg, or clay sewer pipes. When coming across Orangeburg piping, existing line issues will require a complete sewer line replacement.
