SEWER LINE REPAIR

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely, the skilled plumbers at Radiant Plumbing and Air have an array of effective techniques at their disposal to eliminate tree roots from your sewer lines. They employ mechanical augers, high-pressure water jetting, and chemical root killers to break up, flush out, or hinder the regrowth of tree roots within the sewer pipes. In cases of more extensive root damage, we may recommend excavation or trenchless pipe replacement as a durable solution. Addressing tree root intrusion promptly is crucial to prevent blockages and damage, ensuring the proper functioning of your sewer system. With our repair and replacement services available in the Greater Austin and San Antonio Metropolitan areas, we are here to keep your home’s sewer line in top condition, addressing any issues, big or small, that could impact your home’s safety and hygiene. Our professionals are even available 24/7 for emergencies!

The responsibility for sewer line repair and the associated costs often lies with the homeowner. Typically, homeowners are responsible for the maintenance and repair of the portion of the sewer line on their property, extending from the house to the connection with the main sewer line, which may even be at or near the city street. This responsibility is consistent in many areas, including the greater Austin and San Antonio areas. The city or municipality’s responsibility for the sewer line typically ends where it connects to the homeowner’s property, and the rest of the sewer line falls under the homeowner’s jurisdiction. In some cases, repair costs may be shared among property owners in multi-unit buildings, depending on local regulations and agreements. While homeowners’ insurance may offer coverage, policies can vary, so it’s essential to check your specific coverage. Consulting local authorities or our licensed plumbers is advisable to determine specific repair responsibilities and costs. Early detection and prompt action can help minimize expenses and prevent further damage to the sewer system.

Yes, a broken sewer line can often be repaired without extensive excavation through trenchless sewer repair methods. Trenchless sewer repair allows for the rehabilitation or replacement of damaged sewer pipes without the need to dig up and remove the old pipeline. The process begins with a camera inspection of the pipes to assess the extent of the damage and determine the best repair options. There are two primary trenchless methods: pipe lining (Cured-in-Place Pipe – CIPP) and pipe bursting. Pipe lining involves inserting a resin-coated tube to create a new inner pipe, while pipe bursting fractures and replaces the old pipe. Trenchless methods offer benefits such as reduced disruption, faster repair times, and potential cost savings compared to traditional excavation and restoration. However, the applicability of these methods depends on the specific situation and the severity of the damage. While trenchless sewer repair may offer cost advantages and the longevity of resin pipes, it’s essential to note that it may not always be feasible in every scenario. To determine if your home’s pipes can benefit from quick and efficient trenchless repairs, trust the expertise of Radiant Plumbing and Air’s professionals.

A sewer backup in your home can pose health and safety risks due to contaminated wastewater. When faced with such an issue, it’s crucial to act promptly and responsibly. If you experience a sewer backup, immediately cease water usage to prevent further backups and contact a Radiant plumbing to assess the situation. Avoid attempting DIY repairs, as this can exacerbate the problem. In cases where the backup affects multiple properties or appears to be a municipal issue, it’s advisable to contact your local sewer authority. Prioritize safety by not allowing children into the flooded area during cleanup. Protect your belongings, document the issue for insurance purposes, and consider professional cleanup services, especially when dealing with contaminated water. Once the problem is resolved, ask Radiant Plumbing and Air to establish preventive measures through regular maintenance and inspections to avoid future backups. Your safety and well-being are paramount, so swift and informed action is essential when dealing with sewer backups.

Signs You Need Sewer Line Repair

Sewer line problems don’t always announce themselves with a bang. However, there are several telltale signs that your sewer line might require attention:
  • Slow drains: Drains that take an unusually long time to empty, particularly in multiple locations throughout your house, can signify a clog or blockage in the main sewer line.
  • Frequent backups: If sewage backs up into your drains, toilets, or even bathtubs, it’s a clear indication of a serious clog or damage to your sewer line.
  • Foul odors: Sewer gases have a distinct and unpleasant smell. If you detect sewage odors in your home, it could be due to a leak or break in the sewer line.
  • Soggy or discolored patches on your lawn: Sewage leaks can saturate the ground above the line, causing sunken patches or discoloration in your yard.
  • Rooting issues: Tree roots are notorious for invading sewer lines, causing cracks and blockages. If you have large trees near your sewer line and are experiencing drainage issues, it’s worth investigating potential root intrusion.
