Sewage Line Trenching & Trenchless Sewer Line Trenching

With sewerage lines being located at least a couple of feet below the surface of the ground, the most common method for sewer line repair involves using a backhoe to dig a trench surrounding the line to allow access to the affected area to make the repair before burying the line again. Once we make the repair to the line, we use the backhoe to refill the area as professionally as possible to restore your land. Depending on the pipe configuration or where you live, trenching may be the only option.

Depending on your pipes, we at Five Star Columbus Plumbing might be able to make trenchless repairs by installing small access holes where the damaged pipe begins and where it ends instead of digging up an entire trench. We insert the replacement pipe by pulling it through the existing damaged pipe. Trenchless repairs are very popular and can be done much quicker. They also cause minimal damage to yards and driveways compared to traditional underground pipe repair methods because only the dirt at the beginning and end of the line is disturbed.

4 Signs You Need Drain Services

Gurgling or Bubbling Sounds

Clogged pipes disrput the drainage pathways of your plumbing system. These blockages can force water in different directions and through tighter spaces, resulting in unusual sounds. If you hear gurgling or bubbling noises coming from your plumbing system, you should stop using the plumbing as you could have a drain blockage and may be due for drain cleaning services.

Bad Odors Coming From Your Pipes

It’s not you, it’s your drains! When you smell unpleasant odors stemming from plumbing spouts, they’re likely the result of an issue. Those smells could be sewer gases or waste sitting in your drains and should be dealt with right away.

Slow Draining

Your drain isn’t functioning slower than usual for no reason. While there are various things to blame for a slow-flowing drain, common culprits include objects or substances clogging it up. Hair, grease, soap, and other foreign objects can often create clogs over time, making your drains slow. Don’t assume it’ll get better — it’s best to get your drains cleaned immediately.

Frequent DIY Drain Cleaning

DIY drain cleaners such as Drano include harsh chemicals to harm your pipes and create costly plumbing damage. However, homeowners still often turn to these solutions when encountering clogged drains. Do you find yourself constantly needing to snake your drain or clear it with chemical products? This occurrence signifies a deeper problem that likely requires professional drain cleaning services.

Pipes & Drains FAQ

What is sewer and drain cleaning?

Your home has a series of drains connected to pipes that flush out all of your wastewater to the city’s main sewer line. This includes all drains from sinks, showers, baths, toilets, and even your utility sink, if you have one. Since there are various drains and pipes that run throughout your house, at some point in time, it will get clogged. Unfortunately, that’s the life of being a homeowner. Nevertheless, if your home needs a sewer and drain cleaning, you will know by the unpleasant odors, noises, or a slow drain from any of your plumbing equipment. Keep in mind that this is something a homeowner should not do on their own; the best thing to do is call a trained and certified professional plumber to perform a sewer and drain cleaning.

Why is my garbage disposal system emitting an odor, and how can I prevent this?

Odor coming from your garbage disposal system is generally caused by food waste that has built up a smell. You can easily and quickly solve this problem by using acidic foods such as lemon or orange peels to counter the smell. Put the peels inside the disposal system, mix with ice, and let your system run for about thirty seconds. Next, add a bit of dish detergent into the system while running cold water, and rinse the disposal system.

Should I Use Chemical Drain Cleaners?

Unless you are a chemist and fully understand the composition of the chemical, we do not recommend you to use chemicals to clean your drains. These chemicals may be the job done, but can damage your drains and pipes. These chemicals are also terrible for our water systems, as they are not biodegradable.
