Learn More About Our Residential Sewer System Backup Service

When you call us for residential sewer system backup services, we'll first do a sewer line inspection. We use an innovative video plumbing inspection to diagnose the extent and cause of your sewer system backup. That will help us determine how to proceed with sewer system repairs. We'll walk you through your options for residential sewer system repairs so you can make an informed decision. We can usually get repairs done in a day or less. Our options for sewer system repair include the following:

  • Hydro Jetting and Drain Cleaning – We recommend hydro jetting and drain cleaning services if your sewer system backup is due to a clogged sewer line. Our hydrojetting services use a powerful, pressurized stream of water to break apart decades of sludge and clogs from your sewer pipes. We then flush the debris through the sewer line into the city sewer system.
  • Drain Rooter Work – If your sewer system backup is due to tree root intrusion, we can use drain rooter work to cut up and break apart tree roots and other debris.
  • Pipe Relining – If your sewer line is damaged or leaking, we can use our pipe relining process to repair the pipes. We insert a sleeve into your pipe, and as it hardens, it creates a seal to prevent leaks and breaks.
  • Pipe Replacement – We recommend pipe replacement for damaged sewer lines that can't be fixed with pipe relining. We break apart the old pipes with hydraulics and then install a new sewer pipe.
