Sewer Liner Replacement
A video sewer inspection is imperative in determining whether your sewer is a candidate for a sewer liner or trenchless repair.
Trenchless repairs often correct broken, cracked or separated pipes without disturbing landscaping or property. Trenchless repairs is an extensive process which includes electrically snaking, high velocity water jetting and resurfacing sewer lines. When compared to excavating and replacing sewer lines, the trenchless process saves money and time for the home owner.
Empire Sewer and Water offers many ways to correct your drainage system. If you are in Nassau County or Westchester County a sewer liner may be the most effective method of correcting your sewer issue. New York City property owners may want to take advantage of other methods such as resurfacing which restores the diameter of your sewer line to its original size.
You may think to yourself, what is causing my sewer to back-up?
A clogged drain is typically caused by the gradual buildup of organic matter like hair and grease on the inside walls of drain pipes.
There are many causes of a main sewer backup. The main three are clogging, tree roots and broken and/or collapsed sewer lines.
Clogging is most caused by root intrusion and grease buildup. Tree roots penetrating sewer lines are a common problem experienced by city residents.
Over the years the sewer lines develop cracks and fractures due to old age. Roots thrive most in warm, moist and nutrient dense environments.
