Sewer System Backups

Call (833) 827-5096 To Schedule Your Inspection


When it comes to plumbing issues, sewer system backups are one of the worst. Not only can it be challenging to locate the problem due to the fact that sewer lines are underground, but they can cause severe discomfort and inconvenience in your home or place of business. In fact, a sewer system backup can also result in a health hazard.

Here at PlumbingFix, our plumbing technicians have the training, experience, expertise, and access to specialized tools needed to locate and repair any issues that are causing sewer system backups. Because they can cause raw sewage backups, which can be both health and environmental hazards, our technicians are available for emergency sewer system backup services 24/7.

Signs of a Sewer System Backup

The following are some of the common signs that you are dealing with a sewer system backup and that you should schedule an appointment with one of our plumbing specialists at PlumbingFix right away:

  • Water is backing up in one or more sink drain, toilet or shower drain.
  • You can smell a strong sewage odor coming from your home’s drains or from the exterior of your house.
  • There are strange gurgling sounds coming from your toilets or drains.
  • There are pools of water collecting around the floor drain in your basement.

Tree Root Intrusions

One of the common causes of severe sewer system backup issues is the intrusion of tree roots. Pipes that are leaking or have excessive condensation will attract tree roots in search of nourishment. These roots can penetrate your sewer lines through small holes, cracks or through the separation between pipe sections, thereby infiltrating your sewage system. This can result in clogged or burst pipes.

We can identify whether tree roots have penetrated your sewer lines through the use of our specialized video camera system. Once we’ve located the problem, we have a number of solutions that we can turn to, including:

  • Clearing the sewer lines – Once we’ve located the root, we’ll punch through it so that your sewer lines will function properly. However, this is only a temporary solution.
  • Hydrojetting – We can use pressurized water jets to eliminate the buildup of grease and debris as well as the presence of roots in your pipes.
  • Pipelining – We can help to prevent further leaks by lining your sewer pipes with a special sleeve in order to seal it.
  • Replacing old piping – If any section of your sewer line has been compromised beyond repair, we will break apart the old pipe using hydraulics and then simultaneously install new seamless pipe.
