Main Sewer Line Replacement
Delivering the highest quality in sewer line services
All the plumbing fixtures within your home connect to one critical element, which is the main sewer line. This sewer line is what connects your home to the municipal sewer, so that all the waste from your toilet and drains get properly transported out to the main sewer system.
Between improper usage of the plumbing fixtures within the home, and environmental factors, your main sewer line can take a real beating. Often the cost of maintenance falls on the homeowner, so it is important to know the warning signs of an ailing system.
Frequent sewage back-ups
Multiple fixtures within the home unable to drain
Unusual reactions after using a plumbing fixture (Flushing the toilet results in sewage backing up into the tub/shower)
Changes to your lawn (Indentations or puddles/soggy areas, even though there has been no rain)
Causes for a Clogged Sewer Line
Damaged piping may result in the sewage being unable to properly drain. This may cause immediate and/or frequent sewage back-ups. Anything from the shifting or settling of the surrounding soil, to heavy machinery above or even improperly sealed joints during the initial installation could result in a damaged or weakened pipe.
Even though this is completely out of your control, it will happen overtime. The “sagging” of a sewer line occurs after a section of the piping has sunk due to surrounding soil conditions. These dips in the line cause a nice little nest for paper and waste to collect overtime, eventually leading to an obstruction in the drainage, which may result in a sewage back up within your home.
"SAGGING" OF THE SEWER LINE
Mature neighborhoods typically have the beautiful, picturesque, tree lined streets that often attract buyers on this aesthetic alone. However, these properties are notorious for hiding a dirty little secret, tree roots. Older sewer lines were constructed using generally clay, no-corrode or cast-iron materials. In addition, the connections between the pipe sections weren’t as tight as PVC, which is the standard we use today. As trees and shrubs grow, their roots extend beneath the surface in search of a water source. Over time, roots may adhere themselves or even penetrate the sewer piping which in turn may cause debris to become entangled and restrict the flow of the drainage, potentially leading to sewer back-ups. Expansion of the roots may also result in cracks in the pipe, leading to possible leaks and/or ruptures.
What Should You Do If You Suspect A Clogged Sewer Line:
If you frequently experience any of the warning signs mentioned above and suspect there is some form of pipe damage then a video inspection is highly recommended. First and foremost, our technicians will go in and remove the clog that is obstructing the main sewer line. Secondly, through the use of a video inspection, they can locate where the exact issue resides. Using a radio transmitter, located within the camera, they will be able to trace the exact physical location as well as depth. This provides a more efficient repair or replacement of the damaged piping. In doing so will allow us to conduct the appropriate course of action and ensure that there are no added factors to why the sewer backed up. When the job is complete, we want you to have peace of mind that the root cause has been resolved.

...I contacted Express P&H to come do a scope and quote for me. I spoke with Jason and he came the next day. Luckily, he went above and beyond the basic scope I asked for as he found an almost 100% blockage in the line. I would have had a sewer backup incident sooner than later. Given the severity of the situation, Jason and Bella fit me in to have the preventer installed and the line augered out as soon as they possibly could. He also took the time to answer approximately one million questions, give or take 3 or 4, so I knew exactly what to expect moving forward.
