As a professional plumbing company with more than 28 years experience in the industry, we can diagnose any sewer line problems and offer expert repair services.

What Kinds of Sewer Line Repair Do We Undertake?

Sewer Line Repair in Collegeville & Philadelphia, PA

Sewer Inspections
As a precursor to sewer line repair, Vincent Ruzzi Plumbing and Heating inspects sewer lines through video camera. In this technique, a drain snake with a video camera mounted on its head is lowered into the sewer pipe. As the drain snake goes deeper, a live video feed is relayed back to the technician. The video is recorded for later viewing.

The video feed can show blockages of food, grease, hair balls, and other pipe buildup, tree roots that have broken through the pipe, crushed sections, and even cracks. Depending on what issues are detected in this analysis, the technician can recommend a course of action for sewer line repair.

Sewer Line Repair
When providing sewer line repair, we may recommend that the section of the pipe showing damage be replaced or epoxy pipe relining be performed.

  • In the first instance, we will dig up the damaged sewer section, cut it out, and replace it with a new section of pipe.
  • In epoxy pipe relining sewer line repair, we coat the damaged section of the pipe from the inside with an epoxy liner. This layer is then allowed to harden. The result is almost as good as a new pipe.

We also offer total sewer line replacement and trenchless sewer line replacement services. In the former, we dig up the old pipe entirely and replace it with a new pipe. In trenchless sewer line replacement or pipe bursting, we pull a new pipe through the old one, effectively replacing it. The old pipe is destroyed in the process.

Sewer Cleaning
If a blockage is determined to be the cause of any sewer problems, we offer sewer cleaning services including cabling, hydrojet cleaning, and others.

In cabling, an auger with a spinning head is sent down the sewer pipe. The spinning head cuts through roots and clogs in the system, which can be washed away later. In hydrojetting, a stream of high pressure water is sent into the pipe through a heavy duty nozzle. This washes away blockages and even cuts through small roots. Hydrojetting is often done before pipe relining and other sewer line repair techniques.

When Do You Need Sewer Line Repair?

Problems with your sewer line often come unexpected. However, there are some signs that you can see in advance, which indicate damage calling for sewer line repair. Here are a few instances:

  • Drains leading to the sewer line are emanating a raw sewage like smell.
  • Drains leading to the sewer line do not empty quickly.
  • The drains make a gurgling sound.
  • Puddles of water are collecting outside your home, over the area where the sewer lines run underground.
  • Your home or office foundation is showing water damage, even when it is not raining or snowing.
