If your home needs sewer repairs, you’re likely looking at a costly, highly disruptive, and lengthy process. Your home’s entire drainage system runs into the main sewer line outside your house, which then connects to either your town’s sewage system or your septic system. This main sewer line is your home’s central mechanism for drainage, and as such, it must be maintained in good working order.

The pipes in your home’s sewer system are susceptible to damage that’s caused by everyday wear and tear over time, to clogs formed by debris that’s flushed out of your home’s drainage system, to damage caused by extreme weather, and tree roots that can infiltrate and clog the pipes. Whatever the issue, an experienced Boca Raton plumber can help you avoid major repairs to your sewer in the first place and can help you minimize the expense and inconvenience if repairs are necessary.

Annual Maintenance

Most of us don’t give much thought to our plumbing and sewer systems until there’s a problem. Even with plumbing, however, an ounce of prevention can be worth a pound of cure. Your home’s drains handle a lot of activity, and over time, hair, oils, food particles, and other debris can begin to stick to the inside of your pipes and collect. eventually, this can lead to an obstruction that slows or even stops your drains from running. Once the problem affects your sewer system, it’s that much more likely to lead to costly repairs.

With annual professional maintenance and cleaning, an experienced Boca Raton plumber will help ensure that you avoid a serious problem in the first place. With regular maintenance, a skilled plumber will inspect your home’s plumbing and sewer system to help identify any potential problems and to effectively and efficiently address them early on – before they become expensive plumbing emergencies.

Professional Cleaning with Hydrojetting

If you’re already experiencing a drainage issue with your sewer line, it doesn’t necessarily mean expensive and invasive repairs in the future. Professional Boca Raton plumbers have a heavy-duty cleaning tool in their arsenal that’s known as hydrojetting. Hydrojetting employs an extremely powerful spray of water that blasts through blockages and cleans sewer pipes free of buildup and other obstacles that keep your pipes from running smoothly.

Hydrojetting is often even powerful enough to clear out resistant roots, which can lead to permanent damage if left to their own devices. The hydrojetting process not only clears your pipes of built-up debris and blockages but also scours the pipes’ interior walls clean, which is an excellent means of maintaining sewer pipes and smooth running drains throughout your home.

Trenchless Repairs

If your sewers are already in need of repair, an experienced Boca Raton plumber will explore your options with you and may well be able to offer you the less invasive and less costly fix of trenchless sewer repairs. Traditional sewer repair involves tearing up your yard and replacing the offending pipes with new pipes, and this process usually entails having your family take up temporary residence elsewhere while the work is being completed. With trenchless repairs, on the other hand, there is no need to dig up and replace your pipes. Instead, they are coated with a new, extremely durable lining in a process that is far less invasive, is much less expensive, and is friendlier to the environment. Trenchless repair work involves inserting a heavy-duty felt tube – that’s been drenched in a durable epoxy – into the section of pipe that’s been damaged or worn. The felt tube is then inflated until it adheres to the original pipe. Once this hardens and cures, it forms a new interior for your old pipe and leaves it as good as new.
