Common Causes of Sewer Backup

The prevention of water flow is the culprit of all backups. When water in your pipelines cannot flow and drain waste properly, waste water backups are often the result. Here are a few of the most common culprits:

  • Clogs
    If you are experiencing a sewage backup when you flush, it might be due to a clog in your main sewer line. Clogs formed by buildup, waste, and other obstructions will prevent your toilet from draining like it should. Caring for your sewer line by being mindful of what you flush (avoid facial tissues, napkins, etc.) and routine, professional cleanings is a great way to prevent future clogs.
  • Tree root invasion
    Tree roots are one of the most stubborn clogs you can have. These roots grow into your sewer lines through even the smallest crack. These roots are attracted to the moisture from your pipes and will cause blockages and even wrap around your line and crush it.
  • Collapsed sewer lines
    Collapsed or broken sewer lines are most common in older homes. If a section of your system is completely broken, this will prevent flow and cause waste water backups.

Solutions for Sewer Backup

Depending on the cause of your backup, Jim Dandy Sewer and Plumbing will recommend one of our advanced trenchless methods to solve your sewer and drain pipes with speed and precision.

Drain Cleaning

Hydro jetting is our most reliable method of drain cleaning used to treat stubborn clogs in your sewer line. This process involves a pressurized water hose that we insert into an existing access point in your lines. The multi-directional nozzle sprays in all directions and will wash away any buildup or debris in its path.

How Pipe Repair Solves Sewer Backup

If our inspection finds that your pipe is cracked, we may recommend our pipe lining service. This service is most helpful in minor cracks and involves an inflatable tube that is saturated in resin. This tube is inserted into your pipeline and inflated so that the interior walls are coated in resin. This tube is then removed and the resin is cured over a few hours. Once complete, you will be left with a durable pipe interior.

Pipe bursting is a technique used for seriously damaged pipes that need replacement. Instead of traditional techniques that required digging on your property, pipe bursting is a trenchless method that breaks up the damaged pipe and pulls in a new one – all from the interior.
