Sewer Repair

At Bob Oates Plumbing, Sewer & Rooter, we take the time to determine the cause of the symptoms you are experiencing, such as backups or water damage on your property, and our team is trained and equipped to employ the most cost-effective repairs for your specific needs.

Our investigation of the situation begins with a sewer camera inspection. We insert our waterproof robotic camera and optic cable inside of the offending pipe to record the inside pipe circumference. Our camera is able to inspect the entire pipe, from your building to the curbside municipal sewer line connection. The camera inspection will identify if there is a build up of corrosion, a clog, or a crack, and depending on what is discovered, we will move forward with clearing away the symptoms of these problems. The precision of our results leaves no room for doubt regarding what the issue is or how to fix it quickly and efficiently.

Our sewer repairs are most effective when employed in conjunction with our cleaning services, and we take the time to wash away corrosion and blockages with hydro jetting. This high-pressure water treatment scours the interior surface of the entire pipe, removing any buildup or obstruction. The force of the water pressure is strong enough to effectively clean the pipes without compromising the pipeline itself, making it a reliable method for preparing the pipe for further repairs as needed. This pipe cleaning process also allows the sewer camera to re-inspect the pipe and clearly determine the existence of any cracks.

If our technicians discover a crack or break in the pipe, we will recommend our trenchless sewer repair methods to restore it. Our solutions are designed to limit the amount of digging and machinery needed to complete our repairs and allow us to repair the pipe from the inside without having to remove it. Rather than taking days to complete, our sewer repairs take up to a few hours to finish because no time is wasted digging through your property. Through the access point we create or use for our inspections and cleaning session, we are able to install a smooth, corrosion and root resistant epoxy-based pipe inside of the original pipe. The result allows for fast water flow uninhibited by rough corrosion and a pipe that is strongly resistant to the roots of nearby trees. This durability and efficiency make our repairs long-lasting and offers our customers security knowing that their new sewer pipeline will continue to function optimally long after our work is finished.

For more assistance on how our team can support you, give us a call and let our courteous professional team ease your mind.
