Other common causes of drain backups include tree roots, pipe misalignment, partially collapsed pipe or pipe belly, or a fully collapsed pipe. These can all lead to the need for a drain pipe repair.
How to Prevent Backups
Sometimes, it’s possible to prevent drain backups and avoid a repair altogether. You can do so by only flushing the right things down the toilet- just toilet paper, and no wet wipes, feminine products, or any other foreign products. It’s also important not to pour grease or any large food items into the garbage disposal.
However, even though we can watch what we put in our drains, a backup is sometimes unavoidable and beyond our control, as it’s rooted much deeper than household tasks.
How to Know if You Need Your Drain Repaired
If you’re having a backup issue with your pipes or drains, a trained professional will be able to assess the situation and determine what kind of solution is necessary. Oftentimes, a repair will be chosen if the pipe is reasonably accessible, is sized properly for the home’s occupants, and has a reasonably good life expectancy after the cost of the repair.
What the Repair Process Looks Like
First, the sewer pipe and utilities are marked, and the damage is assessed. After the location of the damaged pipes is determined, authorities will then mark the utility lines. For all repairs, we will excavate to ensure that the new pipe is installed properly and will last for years to come.
