Okay, so let's say we've diagnosed what's going on with your sewer line and sadly SOMETHING needs to be done to take care of it.
Actually the line may just need to be cleaned thoroughly from a proper clean out access point. Again, we are sewer inspection and repair specialists and don't offer drain cleaning services. There are several companies in the area that can help and we do have some partners we can refer you to as well.HEADS UP:
This may only be a temporary solution. PLEASE proceed with caution as there are a few companies that say “You Better Call THEM” because they will open your main drain line and perform a sewerscope for "X" number of dollars and it sounds like a good deal. Educate yourself. This could be part of their sales tactic (see below). There is a HUGE difference between getting the water to drain and actually cleaning the sewer line.Opening vs Cleaning
- Poking a hole in a mass of roots or other material may get the water to drain, but it could clog back up very quickly. A true drain cleaning usually requires that a technician “runs the line” at least two times and sometimes more in an attempt to ensure debris is dislodged and thoroughly flushed away. Some companies use a “loss-leader/low ball pricing tactic" just to get into your home. A technician might send the equipment through the line once just to “open the drain”, but remember, there's a difference between “opening” and “cleaning”. At this point they might tell you that the line needs to be run again and there will be an additional charge which most people agree to because they're already there. And it's these types of shenanigans that gives the rest of us a bad name.
They may then use a sewer scope to show you the line and tell you how bad it is. Don't just take their word for it. Get a Second Opinion
