What Should You Know?

There are several reasons why you may notice one or multiple problems with your sewer line. It is essential that you have a full understanding of why you are having issues. It is vital that you gain an understanding of the exact cause of your problem. There are various reasons why a pipe can malfunction, including the following:

  • The pipe is cracked
  • The pipe has become separated
  • Tree roots are in your sewer line
  • The pipe lacks proper pitch
  • Fat, oil, or grease has clogged your drain line

An excellent way to pinpoint what the issue is, and where the issue is, is by having a HD sewer video done. HD videos give an exact location of the defect, and in most cases the actual defect itself.  Once you have an idea of what may be wrong with your pipe, it is crucial that you can identify from where the issue originates. In many cases, a successful restoration or spot repair can be executed on your home or business’s sewer line.

When you need a full replacement, you are going to need to know the exact location of your sewer line’s problem, and the line itself. You may assume your sewer line runs in a straight line to the public sewer, but that is frequently not so. An experienced NYC sewer restoration company will secure DEP sewer records, and also locate your sewer electronically. Once your issue is determined and located, Balkan will give you a FREE on-site visit, coupled with a no-obligation written estimate.
