Sewer line problems in Nashville can bring your entire plumbing system to a halt, causing slow drains and plumbing backups throughout your home that pose a health hazard and may cause extensive property damage. As soon as you notice a change in your home’s drainage system, it’s time to call in a professional plumber for sewer line inspection and cleaning. Your Nashville plumber has the tools and the experience to quickly diagnose sewer line concerns, then provide the right service to restore the function of your home’s drains, toilets, and other plumbing appliances.
Sewer Line Inspection
Once your plumber arrives, the first step in sewer service is to determine the cause of your drainage problems. The fastest and easiest way to diagnose sewer line issues is using a video inspection system, which consists of a video camera attached to a long, flexible cable. This cable is inserted into your home’s sewer line and sends back real-time images of the condition of the drain line. Using this technique, your plumber can quickly and accurately assess the cause of your backup or blockage, which allows him to determine which cleaning solution is right to address the problem he finds without the time and cost of trying several different solutions to find which will work best.
Sewer Line Cleaning
The most common reason for sewer line clogs is trash or debris lodged inside the line, which is often due to overuse or flushing certain types of food or trash down your toilets and drains. There are several ways your plumber can clean out your sewer line to eliminate this type of clog, including snaking and hydro-jetting. Snaking uses a cable with a pointed or hooked end to break up or remove a clog from your sewer line. Depending on the type of clog and its location in your sewer line, your plumber may use either a hand-cranked or an engine-powered snake. Snaking is a great solution to clean out sewer lines affected by a single, localized clog. Hydro-jetting sprays highly-pressurized water through your sewer line, scouring away buildup and breaking up clogs so they can be flushed through the line. This is the best solution to eliminate extensive buildup inside your sewer line, which may be caused by minerals in your water or widespread deposits of grease, fat, and other food debris commonly flushed down your disposal. If a sewer line inspection finds that the cause of your clog is invasive tree roots, the best solution to eliminate the clog is a two-step process. First, your plumber will snake the drain or use a combination of specialized chemicals and hydro-jetting to eliminate the mass of roots inside the line. Second, your plumber will suggest trenchless sewer line repair to replace the damaged section of pipe to eliminate leaks and keep tree roots from returning.
