Sewer & Septic Line Repair

From Your Basement Experts at D-Bug Waterproofing 

Signs of Sewer and Septic Line Problems

Taking care of sewer and septic line issues early can save you time, money, and the horror of loose sewage. Key indicators of a growing problem include frequent drain clogs, unpleasant odors emanating from drains, water backup in showers or bathtubs when toilets are flushed, unusually green patches of grass on the lawn, gurgling noises from pipes, and drains that clear water slowly.

These are signs that your sewer or septic lines need professional inspection before things get worse.

Sewer Problems Can’t Wait

Ignoring sewer and septic line problems can lead to more than just a nuisance. From the emanation of bad smells to significant property damage due to backups, the risks are considerable. More critically, sewer and septic issues can pose a serious threat to health through the potential spread of disease. At the first sign of trouble, it’s imperative to contact D-Bug Waterproofing. Delays can only make the problem worse, leading to more extensive and expensive repairs.

All Season Repair

Sewer and septic line issues don’t follow a calendar – they can arise at any time of the year. D-Bug Waterproofing is equipped to handle these problems in all seasons, whether it’s the freezing depths of winter or the sweltering heat of summer. Winter, in particular, can be a challenging time due to fluctuating weather conditions, freezing ground, and the continued growth of tree roots, all of which can contribute to sewer line damage. D-Bug’s experienced team is ready to respond and resolve these issues whenever they arise.

Why Call D-Bug Waterproofing?

As basement experts with decades of experience in sewer line repair, D-Bug Waterproofing brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to every job. Our dedicated crews are well-equipped to solve even the worst drainage problems promptly and effectively.

We understand the intricacies of basement-related issues and how they connect to broader sewer and septic system health, ensuring a comprehensive approach to every repair or replacement job.

Finding Causes of Sewer Line Damage

Several factors can lead to sewer line damage, including clogged pipes, normal wear and tear, corrosion, extreme temperatures, and intrusion by tree roots. Understanding these causes can help homeowners take preventive measures and recognize when to seek professional help.

With any basement drain or sewer line problem, the most expensive option is to start digging up your basement and/or your yard to replace existing lines. In many cases, it may not even be clear where those lines are or exactly how they run.

Floor Drain Camera

We use a line camera to “see” what’s going on inside and locate the exact position of the problem. This takes some experience and expertise. As you might imagine, sewer lines can be filled with waste, buildup of grease and other materials, soap scum, calcium, and more.

Our camera operators know what they’re looking for and know how to find the  true cause of the problem. They use rugged, self-leveling cameras to inspect your drains using powerful lights, high resolution video, auto-focus, and the ability to record live feeds. Many times, we can use an electric eel to clear the problem quickly and easily.  We look for things like:

  • Roots in drain, penetrating the sewer
  • Clogged drain lines
  • Broken sewer lines
  • Objects dropped into the sewer

Our cameras identify the exact location and depth of the problem, guiding repairs and helping us address your drain problems quickly and conservatively, saving you money whenever possible.

Repair vs. Replacement

When a sewer or septic line is damaged, the decision to repair or replace depends on the severity and extent of the damage. D-Bug Waterproofing offers expert assessments to determine the most cost-effective and efficient solution, whether it’s a repair or a full replacement.

Do It Yourself vs. Professional Repair

While DIY approaches may seem cost-effective for minor clogs, complex sewer line repairs require professional expertise. D-Bug Waterproofing’s team has the necessary equipment and experience to diagnose and resolve issues effectively, minimizing the risk of recurring problems and additional damage.
