Emergency Sewer Line Repair for McHenry, IL
A damaged sewer line can lead to sewage water backing up into your basement, beneath crawl spaces, or underneath the landscaping and paved surfaces. This is a smelly nuisance that can cause major water damage and a biological hazard for your family.
We will come out to your property, diagnose and offer you the best solution to repair your sewer line.
If your sewer line springs a leak or breaks and needs to be repaired, you have two options: Dig a trench around the sewer pipe or use trenchless sewer line repairs. A trenchless sewer repair is time and cost-effective while requiring little to no digging.
If the damage to your sewage pipe is minimal, pipe lining can be used to insert an inflatable tube covered in epoxy into your sewer line. From there, the tube is inflated, pressing against the existing line. While it’s up against the existing sewage line, the epoxy cures and hardens, repairing the leak. The inflatable tube can then be removed and the sewer line repaired.
When a sewer line is too damaged to use the pipe lining technique, a less invasive trenchless repair can be performed. We will feed a cone-shaped bit through your existing line and destroy the pipe while immediately replacing it with a new one. This process is more expensive and less time-effective, but it doesn’t require extensive excavation.
Sewer Line and Drain Cleaning with Hydro Jetting
Preventative maintenance will prevent larger problems from occurring down the road. Hydro jetting is a method to clean your clogged drains and pipes. It uses no chemicals, just highly pressurized water to (up to 4000 PSI) to break up and remove grease, sludge, and even tree roots from sewer drainage pipes. Water this pressurized can clear away just about any obstruction. Think of hydro jetting as pressure washing for the inside of your pipes, only more powerful.
