Sewer Line Service in West Palm Beach
Complete main sewer line blockages result in raw sewage flooding your bathtub, shower drain, sinks, toilets, and any other drain you can imagine. Backups are both horrifying and dangerous – raw sewage contains salmonella, E. coli, and a host of other pathogens that can put you and your family at risk. If you’re in need of emergency service, our expert technicians can respond 24/7 to address the source of your blockage.
Before emergency service becomes necessary, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing can provide Palm Beach County residents with repair and inspection services to reduce your risk of experiencing a total sewer backup. In fact, sewer maintenance is one of the most frequently overlooked tasks that many homeowners fail to address before the situation gets dire. Don’t wait too long and find out the hard way that your sewer lines are in need of maintenance.
What Type of Sewer Line Do You Have?
The type of maintenance your sewer line needs may depend on the type of material your sewer line is made of. Different materials experience different problems, and the way in which you address them can differ as well.
● Clay lines. Clay sewer lines contain a great deal of joints through which tree roots can extend, causing blockages, leaks, and slowing.
● Fiber conduit lines. These lines are susceptible to sagging and becoming misshapen. Over time, the line can sag to the degree that it does not allow solids to pass, causing blockages in the line and leaking.
● Cast iron lines. Unlike the other types, cast iron lines have relatively few joints and do not allow tree root growth. However, the interior of cast iron lines corrodes, causing rusty sediment and buildup that can cause other buildup to collect and affect the performance of your sewer line.
Inspection, Maintenance and Repair
Performing yearly inspection and maintenance can ensure your line remains clog-free and flowing adequately. Your technician will perform a no-mess camera inspection, followed by cable removal of any clogs. If your technician finds that your line needs repair or replacement, you may need to schedule our repair and installation team. This could involve minimal excavation of your yard to address the problem pipes; alternatively, our trenchless installation system could be your answer.
