Sewer Line Repair
You may not realize it, but as a homeowner you are responsible for paying for repairs to the sewer lines running from your home to the street. In most cases those side sewer lines were put in place years ago when your home was originally built. These sewer lines should be inspected before they cause a sewer emergency!
A backed up sewer can cause financial as well as fiscal damage and the typical homeowner isn’t aware there is an issue until it’s too late. It’s important to note that a sewage backup does not mean that your pipes are broken.
Call Bob Oates Sewer Rooter to clean out your pipes and complete an inspection of the pipes. We will be able to give you a complete evaluation on the condition of your pipe, we have the latest techniques to solve the most complex sewer line issues.

Short of replacing your pipes, hydro-jetting is the most efficient way to clear pipes of blockages without damage to the surrounding area and infrastructure.
Hydrojett pipe cleaning uses high velocity water pressure to literally blast away years of accumulated scale, silt, sand, and grease build-up on the inside walls of your pipes. Hydro-jetting has the power to burst open the toughest blockages and at the same time scours the full diameter of the pipe, flushing debris and leaving lines clear.
Main sewer lines are the largest drains in a home. All other drains in the home lead to the main sewer line. The main sewer runs underground from the house and connects to a city sewer line or a septic tank. Your main sewer line can become clogged from the debris those other household drains wash into it or by tree roots that infiltrate pipe joints.
When your sewer line isn’t draining well, it’s easy to assume that the problem is a simple clogged drain. However, it could be any number of different problems ranging from small leaks to majorly damaged pipes.
If the main sewer line clogs, toilets and drains within your house will start to backup. This is usually a headache for homeowners and it can happen at any time of the day or night. Call our office day or night! 206-789-4944

We do this for two reasons 1) to ensure the line is truly clean, and 2) to determine if the pipe is damaged or corroded. The technician will share the video with the homeowner and present options for sewer line repair or sewer line replacement if necessary.
