When wastewater backs up through your floor drain into your home, you might expect that any emergency plumber would be thrilled to help you out. Unfortunately, not every plumbing company will tackle sewer line clogs. Fortunately, MainLine Plumbing offers residents of Pompano Beach, FL a full lineup of underground plumbing services. We’ve invested in the best equipment to tackle in-ground plumbing problems. Our plumbers are certified, highly trained, and friendly. If you have a plumbing issue, even a sewer line clog, you can rely on us for our prompt service.
Sewer Clogs and Repairs
A sewer line issue is among the most dreaded plumbing problems because it stops the entire plumbing system from functioning–and the first sign of a problem is often messy wastewater backup. Wastewater contains potentially dangerous pathogens and the water itself can ruin flooring and drywall. It’s not uncommon for messes like this to trigger an outbreak of mold too.
If your sewer line is backing up, there is likely a clog or a damaged pipe. Our plumbing company provides sewer line repairs. We can visit your Pompano Beach, FL home to tackle the problem quickly. Often, it’s a clog that causes these types of backup issues. We can root out the sewer line to clear the clog. Some plumbers don’t invest in the heavy-duty mechanical machines for this type of work. Our plumbing company does.
If tree roots have caused the clog, we can attach a cutting to the auger that spins and cuts through the roots. Then, they can be washed away into the sewer main. Tree roots are a common problem for sewer lines–especially if the pipes are older.
If the cause of the problem isn’t a clog, the pipe may have collapsed or suffered other damage. MainLine Plumbing can provide the repairs for these types of situations. If the pipe isn’t too old and brittle, the repair might be a good candidate for trenchless sewer line repair–a less invasive option. If the pipe is not a candidate for trenchless repairs, the pipe will have to be dug up and replaced. In that case, it’s a big job. You’ll definitely want to contact us because it’s always best to leave big plumbing jobs to an experienced plumbing company.
It’s tough to know what’s going on in an underground pipe without actually accessing it. Highly trained plumbers, of course, have many techniques and tools for evaluating plumbing problems. Before the invention of in-line cameras, they had to rely on other skills for assessing plumbing issues. MainLine Plumbing can perform in-line camera work. Our plumbing company invests in the best tools and equipment to serve our customers.
A clog that’s deep in the line or a damaged pipe can be challenging to identify. No one wants to dig up ground to access a pipe just to evaluate the problem. With an in-line camera, we can see into underground pipes and make an accurate evaluation of the issue. Then we can take the appropriate steps to resolve the problem.
Sometimes pipes wear out. Our plumbing company can replace them–even underground pipes. In Pompano Beach, FL, replacing cast iron pipes is a common job, but not all plumbers are equipped to tackle these types of projects. MainLine Plumbing offers cast iron pipe replacement services. Of course, we can tackle other types of pipes. If your pipes are subject to multiple leaks, it might be time to replace them. Our plumbers can inspect your plumbing system and recommend the ideal solution for your home.
A backflow preventer can spare your home of messy wastewater backup problems–most of the time, so long as the preventer doesn’t fail. Our plumbing company can install backflow preventers and then, as a matter of maintenance, we can test them periodically to ensure they’re working properly. You don’t want to find out that your preventer has failed with messy wastewater backup all over your floor. In Florida, backflow preventers are standard practice. In our climate with its frequent rains, you don’t want to risk a backup should the local sewer system become overwhelmed or if your sewer line develops a clog.
Storm Drain Cleaning
Speaking of storms, heavy rains can send debris into your storm drain. Over time, the mud and debris can clog your drain. In addition, as the debris decays, it can erupt with mold growth, and that can attract insect pests to your property. Let our plumbing company help you maintain your storm drains with periodic cleaning. Our underground plumbing services are always priced fairly and delivered by professional plumbers.
Tunneling to repair or replace underground pipes is best left to a professional plumbing company. Again, this isn’t a service that every plumber is able to provide. Sometimes pipes under the foundation have to be accessed in order to replace them. Pipes wear out–even the best ones. An inexperienced contractor can damage your foundation. It’s essential to work with a plumber and crews who have experience with this type of invasive in-ground work. We provide all the equipment needed to address your in-ground plumbing problem to provide the ideal repair service.
