How to Find Sewer Problems
Sewer lines are the system of large pipes that specifically carry wastewater and sewage from homes and commercial properties to disposal areas and treatment plants. In the past, diagnosing the problem in a sewer pipe could be a struggle since it often required extensive digging and plowing to expose the pipe and allow repairs to resume. When problems to occur, there are various warning signs that our experts look for to determine what it is and how to best solve it. These symptoms may include:
- Sewage odors in the basement or yard
- Water is backing up into the toilets and bathtubs on your residence
- After toilets are flushed, the water level is noticeably lower
- The water in sinks and tubs moves slowly or doesn't drain at all
These signs can point to serious problems, from clogging to leaks or breaks, and need to be looked at and fixed by a team of professionals who can accurately assess and reverse the damage to your pipes. We will often find that these complications can be attributed to various factors, all of which can be exposed with our high-quality cameras during the early stages of our inspection and diagnosis. After this process is completed, we will be able to recommend the best repair and replacement solution.

Sewer Repair & Replacement Options
There are a few ways to fix these issues in your home if you are experiencing any of these potential causes. Excavation is the oldest form of sewer line repair and was conducted with a backhoe and extensive plowing. Old pipes are exposed and replaced with new ones, and once the pipe was replaced, the trench was backfilled.
These dig-and-replace methods have since become outdated and unfavorable for homeowners and business owners in Northern Virginia, and because of this, we prefer to use modern techniques like trenchless repairs, pipe bursting, or cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining services. Trenchless technology is used to repair your drain and sewer lines without excavating across your property, which will save you the cost of putting your lawn back together. Additionally, trenchless repairs are more cost effective than excavation. There are two types of trenchless repair methods that we often recommend, including:

Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of replacing pipelines that are deep underground, including sewer pipes, water lines, and natural gas pipes without the need for a traditional construction trench. Using a busting-head, the original pipe is broken up as a new pipe is set in its place.
A flexible tube is inserted into the damaged pipe. This inserted pipe is installed by just digging one hole, which means major excavation isn't required. This is why it is also sometimes called point repair because it typically requires the plumber to just create one hole or access point. This can be used to fix only small problems in pipes like cracks or fissures, and cured-in-place pipe lining will fix full pipelines if they need to be completely replaced. This also makes maintenance plans easy to schedule, as the quality of the epoxy liner is extremely durable and reliable.
