Zippity Split Plumbing team preparing for sewer line repair Scottsdale, AZ

Sewer lines are durable and long-lasting. However, they are not immune to damage. Over time, they may sustain clogs, leaks, cracks, and other problems. When left neglected, they can cause the system to back up or break down, wreaking havoc on your home. For this reason, you should get professional sewer repair in Scottsdale, AZ, at first sight of trouble.

At Zippity Split Plumbing, we take the extra mile to ensure we deliver a smooth and hassle-free service from start to finish. To help set your expectations, here’s an overview of the sewer pipe line repair process:

Assessment and Diagnosis

First, we need to see what is wrong with your sewer lines. Our in-depth inspection involves feeding a specialized camera into the pipes via the cleanout. This device sends us live footage of what is inside the pipes, allowing us to examine their condition, diagnose underlying issues, and determine whether to repair or replace sewer line.

Pipe Cleaning

Next, we will prepare and clean the sewer line. We may use a plumbing snake or descaling tool to clear clogs obstructing the pipe. This is especially helpful should we conduct trenchless fixes, as the liner or coating will adhere easily to the pipe interior. Cleaning the pipes is essential to achieve the best results for our sewer repair services.

Sewer Line Restoration

The sewer line restoration method will depend on the damage type and extent. In some cases, we may need to replace a section of the sewer line. In other instances, we may be able to patch or seal the damaged pipe.

Rest assured that we will discuss what to expect from our sewer line replacement or repair before starting the work. Furthermore, we will do our best to minimize disruptions and isolate the mess.

Post-Work Inspection and Restoration

Once done, we will test your sewer line to see if it’s in good working order. We usually run water through the system and check for leaks or clogs. Furthermore, we will inspect the pipes to ensure no underlying problems are present. Then, we will fill in any holes or trenches we dug during the process and assist with restoring the surrounding landscaping.
