Sewer Hookup & Repair
There are various reasons why you may be moving off your septic system to a municipal sewer hookup. Whatever the reason, we can help you.
We will first find the sewer line connecting your house to the tank. We will then connect to that line, dig a trench to the municipal sewer line, and connect you to the sewer main.
Everything we do must conform to county and city codes. We will also identify and repair cracks or trouble spots in the process.
Sewer Line Repair
A sewer that is backed up means you have a problem with your sewer lines. This is a serious problem and you need to have the sewer problem repaired quickly to avoid further damage.
Most Common Problems With Sewer Backup And Solutions Are Listed Below:
Clogged Sewer Line
The sewer line from the house to the tank (main line) is clogged.
Clogged sewer lines are normally due to years of neglect. Disposing of fats, grease and oils from shampoos and soaps are common causes.
Part of the routine maintenance on your septic system is Sewer line cleaning that should be done along with every other septic tank pumping. This will ensure an unrestricted path into the septic tank.
Clogged Baffle Filter
The Baffle Filter outlet is plugged. Filters have been installed in the outlets of most septic systems since the mid 80’s. If the filters have not been cleaned, backup may occur.
Submersible Pump Failure
If your septic system contains a submersible pump as one of its components, there are many reasons why the submersible pump may stop working, such as:
- Power failure
- Breaker trips
- Pump gets unplugged
- Pump wears out
- Wires get cut
- Float stop working
- Shut off switch is flipped to the off position
Regardless of the failure, continued use of the plumbing in your home will result in raising the level of effluent in the tank and eventually cause the sewage to back up.
