Sewer & Water Line Services
Plumbing leaks can be a property owner’s worst nightmare. Leaks in sewer lines, drains and water lines are the cause of many damages to your property including flooded basements, and sewage backups. We recommend yearly video pipe line inspections since debris, household soaps and grease, even plant roots, can clog or damage your sewer and drain lines. Catch potential problems before they cause severe damage.
Residential, commercial, and industrial sewers need regular maintenance and upkeep. You can depend on our team to keep these lines moving steadily with regular care. A number of factors may contribute to sewer line leaks, including the infiltration by roots of nearby trees. Any blockage that clogs the pipeline may eventually result in leaks when the pressure exerted by the wastewater becomes too great.
- Tree roots – Tree roots can creep into your sewer and drain lines. If left alone, the problem gets worse, leading to costly repairs later. A video inspection helps us see this problem and how extensive it is. Then we can give you options for how we can fix it.
- Grease buildup – Grease and fat cling to your drain line’s sides, causing your drain to slow or clog completely. If we find a lot of grease buildup, we’ll likely recommend a high-pressure jetting to flush the gunk to your sewer line.
- Line collapses or “bellies” – Sometimes a line collapse causes a clogged drain. Other times, the cause is a “belly” (a dip in the line that causes water and other junk to collect in the low area).
If not dealt with, these problems will result in frequent clogs and other drain problems, costing you more money in the long run.
Highwater Plumbing & Heating does more than just clear your drains. We offer several sewer services – such as sewer line repair, sewer line replacement and sewer line cleaning – to correct a number of problems, including:
- Broken, cracked, offset or collapsed pipe: Pipes have been damaged due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc.
- Blockage: Grease buildup or a foreign object is restricting or prohibiting proper flow and/or cleaning of the line.
- Corrosion: The pipe has deteriorated and/or broken, causing collapses in the line and restricting flow.
- Bellied pipe: A section of the pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a valley that collects paper and waste.
- Leaking joints: The seals between pipes have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.
- Root in sewer line: Tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer line and/or have damaged the line, preventing normal cleaning.
- Off-grade pipe: Existing pipes are constructed of substandard material that may have deteriorated or corroded.
