Sewer Line Repair and Replacement in Portland

There can sometimes be more complicated drainage problems that cannot be solved with a drain cleaning. It is not unusual to find cracks in sewer lines, collapsed sewer lines, or tree root intrusion in lines that have not been properly cared for. In addition to root damage, a broken or clogged sewer line can be caused by a number of other things. Objects can find their way into the sewer line and become lodged. Extreme temperature changes, general drain deterioration, ground shifting and improper installation can also cause sewer drain problems. For all of your sewer line repair and replacement, trust Rescue Rooter®/Jack Howk in Portland, OR. We use next generation equipment and our efficient and affordable service keeps your sewer lines in good condition. Whether you need total replacement of your sewer line or repairs to an existing line, Jack Howk can help.

Replacement vs repairs

Your sewer line is one of the most important parts of your plumbing system because it helps to bring waste out of your house while allowing a fresh flow of water into your house. The state of your lines will determine whether repair or replacement is the right choice. When your sewer line has deteriorated or collapsed, replacement is usually the only option. On the other hand, if repairs can be done to keep your sewer line functioning for properly for several years, it is a less expensive and extensive operation. At Rescue Rooter®/Jack Howk we never try to upsell you on any particular product or service. Instead, we help determine the best course of action for your property and your budget and get you the service you need.

Video Sewer Inspection in Portland

We can help you avoid the expense of exploratory plumbing or digging up your yard by using a miniature camera to help identify the problem. Video inspection can also confirm the structural condition of your sewer lines. We’ll share the video with you and go over your repair options carefully. Video inspections are a great tool to help determine the state of your sewer line. You must have a certain type of access point for video inspections to be possible. Some sewer lines are older and farther underground, making video inspections impossible. If you are unsure whether your sewer line can be inspected with video technology, call us today.

Trenchless Pipe Repair in Portland

Having sewer line problems used to mean excavation on a large scale, with yard repairs becoming necessary after the sewer line repairs were completed. Fortunately, we offer trenchless pipe repair. Trenchless pipe repair is faster, landscape-friendly and only requires a few access points.

There are two different approaches to trenchless sewer line repair that we use, pipe bursting and pipe relining. With pipe bursting, the existing line is safely blown apart as a new, stronger high-density pipe is pulled through. With pipe relining, a fiberglass line is placed inside the faulty pipe to seal any damage, creating a long-lasting repair. How your lines are connected to the municipal lines will determine which form of trenchless sewer repair is a possibility. Similar to many next generation sewer line services, older lines cannot take full advantage of trenchless repair. Our expert team can easily help determine which form of line you have. If trenchless pipe repair is possible, we will let you know.
