Addressing a Wide Range of Sewer Line Problems

Sewer line problems can have a number of causes. The age of the pipe can result in a sewer line that is corroded and needs replacement. Other causes of sewer line damage include ground shifting or settling, the use of heavy machinery above the pipe, improper installation, and tree roots seeking water infiltrating the pipe through small cracks or holes. 

A successful sewer repair starts with an accurate assessment of the problem and the scope of the damage. A sewer camera inspection provides a reliable and noninvasive method to identify the specific problem in the sewer line and the overall condition of the pipe. Your plumber will perform the inspection using state-of-the-art equipment for the most accurate evaluation of the sewer line. 

Decisions about sewer line repair can be made using information gained during the camera inspection. For example, a clog in the line can be cleared or a damaged section of the pipe can be repaired. Your plumber will discuss the results of the inspection and walk you through the best methods for sewer line repair to solve your problem.

Complete Sewer Repair Services 

The various drains in a home or commercial property empty into the main sewer line, which connects to the municipal sewer system. When something goes wrong with the sewer line, such as a clog or damage, you need prompt sewer repair in Princeton. It is the responsibility of the property owner to repair and maintain the portion of the line that is on your property.

Since the sewer line is located underground, you need to watch for signs of trouble. A clog in a single drain is almost always caused by debris inside that drain. However, a problem that is more systemic is usually caused by an issue in the main sewer line. For example, slow, clogged, or backed-up drains in several areas of the house indicate a clog or damage to the sewer line.


Some common sewer repair issues include:

  • A clog or blockage
  • Tree roots growing into the line
  • Corrosion 
  • A collapsed pipe 
  • Cracks or breaks in the pipe 
  • Separated sections of pipe 


There are a few telltale signs that can suggest a broken sewer pipe. These include:

  • An unpleasant smell coming from your drains
  • Slow or complete lack of drainage
  • Water on the ground near plumbing fixtures
  • Gurgling noises coming from the drains. 
  • Increase of unwanted pest
  • Mold or Mildew in the basement

Preventing sewer line blockages and damage is crucial for maintaining a healthy plumbing system and avoiding costly repairs. Here are four effective ways to prevent sewer line issues:

Regular Maintenance:
