The repair or replacement of an entire sewer line or even just a section is sometimes required when drain clearing efforts don't work. These are the primary indicators that a repair or the replacement procedure is required:
• Broken, cracked or collapsed pipe due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, among other possible causes • Severe grease buildup or a foreign object restricting flow • Corrosion of an older pipe that caused the pipe to break or collapse • A "bellied" pipe where a section of the pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a spot in the line where paper and waste collect and cause repeated blockages• Leaking joints where the seals between sections of pipe have broken, allowing water and sewage to escape • An excessive amount of roots in the line that cannot be cleared using a cable machine
The best way to confirm that a line is broken is with a video inspection. Empire is very knowledgeable on all of the sewer rules and regulations and on the permitting the process with DEP, DOB, and DOT. We also have knowledge of SD-1 & SD-2 and can provide service for residential and commercial clientele
