A backed-up sewer is an emergency that must be addressed immediately! There is an immediate risk to your furnishings, carpets, home, your family’s health or your business’s operations. We’re ready to send our Albuquerque sewer line repair technicians to your home or business 24/7 to clean out or perform sewer line repair before your home or business can suffer extensive losses.

Signs That Sewer Repair Is Needed

There are many ways to tell that you need sewer line repair. Only a qualified Albuquerque plumber can tell if sewer cleaning services will handle the problem or if you need sewer repair. If you see these signs, call us immediately for an inspection and estimate:

  • Decreased water pressure
  • Slow drainage of water
  • Mold problems or cracks in foundations, slabs or walls (if other causes have been ruled out)
  • Foul odors in the home or business
  • Low or fluctuating water levels in toilets
  • Lawn indentations
  • Lush areas of grass

Sewer Cleaning

Each of our Albuquerque emergency plumbers comes equipped with the ability to camera scope your sewer lines to find the exact location of a problem. A camera scope is a lighted camera that we feed through your sewer lines to find breaks, corrosion, collapsed areas, or tree root infiltration so we can diagnose your problem and give you a correct estimate for repair. 

If you call us at the first sign of trouble, our technicians may be able to clean out the obstructions in your sewer line before they cause extensive damage to your plumbing. We’ll use specialized equipment to clear your sewer lines via the cleanout, which is an access point to your sewer line outside of your home. We can clear out common blockages such as tree roots, plastic bags, grease, leaves, and so on. By cleaning out the debris that’s obstructing your sewer line, our technicians can then use the camera scope to find the sources of damage, blockage, or other problems with your pipes. 

It may be that your sewer line was simply clogged, and the cleaning will handle the backup on its own. Checking the pipes with our scopes will help us verify that everything is working as it should. And if you do need a repair or pipe replacement, we can handle that for you and get your sewer draining properly again. Our camera scopes will help us locate the exact area of pipe that needs repair or replacement, which saves you time and money.

How can I prevent needing a sewer line repair?

Taking care of a sewer line is an important part of home maintenance that many homeowners forget about. But it’s important that you remember to take care of your home’s sewer line because simple preventative steps taken now can keep your sewer line functioning properly and save you from costly repairs in the future. If there is a problem with your sewer lines backing up, we can get out and run our camera and find out exactly what is causing the problem. We will give you an estimate to solve it. If it is not backing up, don’t worry about it! Just make sure you aren’t flushing or draining anything down your pipes that doesn’t belong, such as food scraps, feminine hygiene products, non-flushable wipes, or other trash. And finally, if you notice any problems like stopped drains, bad smells coming from your drains, or water leaks, call us right away to come fix it before it turns into a bigger problem. If you follow these steps, your sewer line will last for a long time and shouldn’t give you much trouble at all.

The good news about your sewer line is that if something’s wrong, you’ll be able to tell because the signs that a sewer line needs to be repaired are usually pretty obvious. Here are some of the signs you should keep an eye out for to know if your sewer line is in need of repairs: decreased water pressure in your sinks, shower, tub, toilet, etc.; water that drains very slowly; sudden increase of mold growth in your home; bad odors in your home, especially near drains; new dips or indentations in your lawn; and areas of grass in your lawn that are much more lush than the rest of your yard. All of these are signs that you have a sewage backup or leak on your property that should be handled right away to prevent damage to your property or your health. If you’ve noticed any of these signs at your home or business, give Rocketman Plumbing a call today at 505-243-1227. We’ll be out to your home to locate and handle the cause of the problem in a flash.

Homeowners are ultimately responsible for the maintenance and repair of their own sewer lines. This includes anything from clearing out a clogged pipe to replacing an entire sewer line. When you purchase a home, it is always a good idea to have a home inspector check the property and plumbing systems before you close escrow. This helps ensure that there aren’t any unexpected issues that may arise soon after you move in. If you purchased a home without this inspection, or if you’ve owned your home for a long time now, we recommend getting an updated inspection of your plumbing to be sure everything’s in working order. Taking the time to make sure your sewer lines are in good condition can help save you money and prevent damage and costly repairs down the road. And if there is an issue with your home’s sewer line, you should call Rocketman Plumbing right away at 505-243-1227. We can assess exactly what kind of repair is needed and provide you with an estimate on the cost and timeline for getting it fixed.

When you call Rocketman Plumbing to come out and repair your sewer line, we’ll be out to your property in a flash. This is because a damaged or broken sewer line is actually an emergency situation. Sewage is hazardous to your health, so we want to stop the leak as fast as possible to protect your property and your family. Once we arrive at your property, we will evaluate the situation and use our camera as needed to determine if there is a blockage, a collapsed pipe or another issue causing the leak. Depending on the cause of the leak, we may need to do a thorough cleanout of your pipe, repair a small section of the sewer line, or even replace the entire sewer line. We will let you know what the problem is, what the solution is, and about how much time it will take to complete. Once we’ve finished with the cleaning, repairs, or replacement of your sewer line, we will check to make sure that the problem is fully handled. We will also let you know what to do to take care of your sewer line going forward to prevent the emergency from happening again. If you have a sewer line leak, call us right away at 505-243-1227 and we’ll handle it in a flash.

The average cost of sewer line repair in the United States is about $50 to $250 per foot of pipe that needs to be repaired or replaced. Your overall cost will depend on several different factors, such as how much pipe needs to be repaired and how easy it is to access the section of sewer line that is damaged or leaking. And if you have multiple leaks, it may end up being a smarter investment to simply replace the sewer line instead of trying to patch it back together. If you have homeowner’s insurance, the cost of your sewer line repair or replacement may be covered, so make sure you check with your insurance company. When you call Rocketman Plumbing for sewer line repairs, we can give you an estimate of the time and cost it will take to get the job done. If you have any questions about sewer line repair or replacement, give us a call at 505-243-1227 today and we’ll be happy to help answer any of your questions or schedule an estimate for you.
