Blocked Sewers and Pipes
Blocked sewers will cause sewage backup that are horrible since everything that should normally go down will back up into the house. Homeowners will clearly want to avoid sewage backups.
Some of the reasons that lead to sewage backups are:
- Cracked pipes
- Tree roots
- Diapers and many other causes
The choice of equipment to be used to clear the problem will depend on the severity of the problem.
It is possible to resolve a blocked sewer without having to use a high pressure drain cleaner. The high pressure drain cleaner pumps high pressure water through sewer pipes to flush out debris that caused sewage backup.
Some cases of sewage backup can be addressed using a flexible snake-like tool that is made of metal and has a spiral end piece. The spiral end piece looks similar to a drill bit. Our technicians will insert the snake into the sewer line until they reach the blockage. By spinning the snake, the technicians will ensure that the end piece is tearing down or breaking apart material at the blockage.
Where the blockage in the sewer pipe is caused by a rusted or damaged pipe, the Ottawa Plumbing Service technicians will repair or replace the damaged pipe. If replacement is the best solution, the entire length of damaged sewer pipe will be removed and replaced with a new piece of pipe to get the sewer line working again.
