If your sewer line or drain becomes clogged, it can very quickly turn into an emergency situation. If wastewater is not able to continue down the drain, it will most likely back flow into your home. Because of the dangers associated with wastewater, our team Freedom Plumbers is proud to provide the Alexandria community with our excellent, prompt emergency sewer services. We understand that wastewater is not something that should be handled by someone without training as it can carry a tremendous amount of bacteria and disease. Our team is trained to perform repairs and operate around wastewater with care, ensuring that your home and quality of life is preserved. Our technicians are fully qualified to handle these situations with professionalism and fix the problem correctly the first time.
If you suspect that you may have a drain blockage, turn on the bathroom faucet. If the water level in the toilet rises, this can indicate a clog. Even if it hasn’t begun to overflow, it is still a serious issue. Sewer drains can be about 4 inches in width and connect with the main drain under your home. All other pipelines, including the washing machines and kitchen faucets, also attach to the main line. If a sewer clog is able to travel down to the main line over time, it can cause all the home pipelines to back flow. If this does happen, we recommend turning off the water and removing valuables from any areas that have become flooded with wastewater.
At Freedom Plumbers, we have a quick and efficient method called hydro jetting that is used to combat sewer clogs. To begin, we will employ a video inspection in your pipes. Using LED cameras, we can be able to locate the location of the blockage and identify the severity. Once we can confirm that the pipe is strong enough to handle the hydro jetting equipment and doesn’t have additional damage, we can begin with the necessary repairs. Our equipment consists of a hose with a specialized nozzle, and this hose is attached to a pressurized water tank. The nozzle that is designed to allow the blast of water to hit the different areas of the pipe in order to clear out even small parts of the clog. At a pressure of 4000 PSI, it can even break up tree roots that have infiltrated your pipe, breaking up debris and flushing it down the drain completely and ensuring that the presence of waste accumulation is eliminated.
Because of its power, efficiency, and timeliness, this is a method that can be very effective for emergency situations. In addition to being a quick fix, our hydro jetting service also offers long-term benefits. Once the clog is removed, your water flow can be restored to its original state. However, over time it can become restricted again by small and unavoidable debris. That’s why we recommend regular maintenance and inspections in order to prevent an emergency overflow.
