Sewer Repair Services in the Hudson Valley

Sewer Repairs

Sewer troubles? Contact our Hudson Valley sewer and drain experts to repair your sewer system.

Your sewer line is the main drain that connects your home to the municipality’s sewer system, allowing waste and water to be removed from your home. When sewer lines become clogged or damaged, it can be a messy and unsanitary plumbing hazard that requires immediate resolution.

If you’re experiencing a main line backup, call the sewer and drain experts at T. Webber for fast, efficient service. Our team of trained technicians will thoroughly diagnose your sewer system and provide solutions for immediate resolution, including spot repairs, total sewer line replacements, and trenchless sewer relining.

It Starts With a Proper Diagnosis

At T.Webber, all of our sewer calls begin with thoroughly examining your home’s drainage system to pinpoint the exact cause of your sewer line troubles. After clearing the main line, our sewer and drain experts can perform a camera inspection to pinpoint the cause and location of the drainage issues and recommend immediate and long-term repair options, if necessary.

Some of the common causes of sewer line issues that we see throughout the Hudson Valley include:

  • Wear and tear from aging
  • Extensive corrosion
  • Tree root infiltration
  • Crushed or severely cracked lines
  • Pipe misalignment or pipe bellies
  • Improper layout, design, and installation

Broken Sewer Lines: Repair or Replace?

Whether it’s a collapsed sewer line, misalignment of your pipes, pipe belly, or extreme corrosion & waste build-up, our team of sewer experts can design a custom solution to remedy your situation. Depending on the type of problem identified and the age of the existing line, we may recommend a sewer line repair or a complete sewer line replacement.

Sewer Line Repair

Wherever possible, our team will recommend a sewer line repair on a specific section of your sewer line. This makes the most sense if the location of the issue is reasonably accessible and if the team expects your sewer line to have a reasonable life expectancy after the repair cost.

Sewer Line Replacement

Sewer line replacement is most often recommended when the pipe is bellied or collapsed if the condition of the existing pipe is deformed or deteriorated, if you are reaching the lifespan of the existing pipe, or if the sewer line is made of Orangeburg.

Sewer Line Replacement–You Have Options!

If sewer line replacement is recommended, you still have options in most cases! Our sewer and drain experts team can provide complete excavation and replacement services. Additionally, if the situation is compatible, trenchless pipe relining may also be an option to avoid the headaches of excavation and maintain the curb appeal of your property.

Sewer Line Repair FAQs

1. Does T.Webber Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric offer trenchless sewer line services?

Yes! T.Webber Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric offers trench-less sewer line services so that you don’t need to dig up your lawn or property to repair or replace your sewer line.

2. What is the most common cause of sewer line damage or clogs?
Tree roots, by far. These sinister, creeping tendrils will strangle your vulnerable pipes until they’re so squeezed and overgrown that nothing can flow through.

3. What about tree roots makes them such pipe pulverizers?
Because they’re opportunists! Tree roots are most likely to penetrate sewer lines that were already damaged and rest in the top 2 feet of soil. Try to avoid planting large trees that grow quickly anywhere near your sewer lines. Also, try to keep the root systems of an existing tree in check through careful pruning and landscaping.

4. What types of trees are my sewer lines’ biggest enemies?
There are no “safe” trees when it comes to protecting your sewer lines. But be sure to steer clear of the following at all costs: ash, sweetgum, poplar, cottonwood, lowland oak, locust, willow, basswood, tuliptree, sycamore, box elder and many maple varieties such as sugar, red, Norway and silver.

5. How can I protect my sewer lines through landscaping efforts?
Well, first off, water seeking trees like the ones listed above should be replaced every 8-10 years before they can grow into pipes and sewer lines. In addition, plant only small, slow-growing trees near sewer lines. When replacing old sewer lines or installing brand new ones, do whatever you can to ensure root infiltration won’t be a problem down the road.

6. What if it’s too late and I’m already dealing with root intrusion? Is there anything I can do to minimize the damage?
Don’t panic! There are still a couple of things you can do to take some stress off your sewer lines. First, you could try using chemical root killers that slowly release chemicals to stop root growth. You can also try naturally compacted layers of soil to make it harder for roots to penetrate. This involves laying down chemical layers of sulfur, zinc, borate, sodium, salt or herbicides. We’ve also seen some success with folks creating underground air pockets using large stones which encourages roots to grow in that direction rather than toward your pipes. But really the best way to save your root-tangled pipes is to contact a drain or sewer cleaning specialist ASAP!
