Contact a licensed plumber if you notice any of the following signs that indicate you may need sewer line services:
Aside from sewer line and drain cleaning, Ravinia Plumbing offers a full range of sewer and drain services, including sewer video inspections, sewer rodding, sewer excavation and sewer ejector pumps.
As we previously mentioned, a sewer video inspection is highly effective at spotting the exact location of a clog or blockage. The camera sends back high-resolution images that the plumber can review so they can develop a course of action to make the appropriate repair. Sewer video inspections are used before any repair is made.
Sewer rodding is a method of using various rods, tools, water and chemicals to clear out any clogs. Sewer rodding is a common technique used to eliminate unpleasant odors and sewer backups from tubs, floor drains, sinks and toilets.
Sewer excavation service involves using earth-moving equipment to dig up an area of your yard to find and repair the compromised section of the sewer line. Sewer excavation is commonly performed for broken sewer pipes.
If you have water pipes that run below the main sewer line, such as a basement bathroom, you need a sewer ejector pump to elevate the wastewater upwards to the main line and out of the house. Sewer ejector pumps typically last about 8 to 10 years. Ravinia Plumbing can provide maintenance, repairs and installations for sewer ejector pumps.
