Types of Sewer Systems We Repair
Our sewer pipe repairs cover all material types and sewer systems, including:
- Sanitary sewers. These carry wastewater from homes and businesses to main sewer lines and then to wastewater plants. This wastewater is then cleaned at these plants.
- Storm sewers. These move stormwater into a nearby body of water to prevent flooding around homes or businesses.
- Combined sewers. These carry both wastewater and stormwater to sewage treatment facilities. However, these types of sewer systems are not common anymore due to the difficulty of cleaning stormwater.
Our Residential Sewer Line Repair Services
Sewer line repair issues are hazardous to you and your home and can quickly turn into costly replacements if not addressed immediately. That’s why our professionals are experienced with all types of sewer line issues, and always show up on time and prepared with the right tools for the job.
Our licensed sewer plumbers offer all types of sewer line repair services, including:
- Cracked sewer pipe repair
- Leaking sewer pipe repair
- Collapsed sewer line repair
- Clogged sewer line repair
- Main sewer line repair
- Trenchless sewer line repair
We use advanced tools and camera inspection technology to first identify the issue and determine if repairs or replacements are necessary. Our team always takes steps to avoid sewer line replacement when possible.
Once we determine the type of repair needed, we’ll either dig up your sewer lines or perform trenchless sewer repairs. One of the most common types of sewer line repair we perform is pipe relining. During this process, we line your existing sewer pipes with a “sleeve” to prevent pipe cracks. We clean out the pipe and apply the lining. Once it’s been relined, the lining hardens within a few hours.
Signs of Broken Sewer Pipes
Since sewer lines are located underground, it can be difficult to identify if they are broken and need to be repaired. There are other signs you may notice around different areas of your home that indicate that your sewer pipes are broken, such as:
- Gurgling noises coming from your toilet
- Lack of water in your toilet
- Slow drains
- Sewer odor in your basement or yard
- Flooded yard
Prevent Sewer Line Issues
Sewage backup and sewer line damage are sometimes caused by storms or large municipal sewer issues. However, most of the time, sewer line repairs are due to daily use and can be prevented by homeowner maintenance. To prevent costly repairs:
- Only flush toilet paper and human waste.
- Keep trees and bushes clear of sewer lines.
- Don’t send grease, oil, or starchy items down the drain.
- Schedule regular drain cleaning.
- Schedule regular plumbing inspections.

Can a sewer line freeze?
Yes. This can happen in your home due to incorrect insulation, issues with your heating system, or significant temperature drops outside. Outdoors, sewer lines can freeze if they are buried too shallow. If you notice a lack of water flowing through your plumbing or sewage odors in your home, then your plumbing or sewer line may be frozen. Call your local plumbing professional right away to inspect your sewer lines.
Why does my house smell like sewer?
If your entire home smells like sewage, there may be either a leak or a backup in your sewer line. This can quickly lead to dangerous sewage leaks or costly repairs if not addressed quickly. Contact your local plumber to inspect your sewer line for potential repairs.
