Wonder why your home’s pipes keep getting clogged when you haven’t done anything wrong? Read on to learn why these back-ups happen and the techniques that top-quality plumbers like Thompson Plumbing, Heating & Cooling use to fix them.
A main reason plumbing systems become clogged is because the main sewer line has become partially blocked or damaged. Many of the Greater Cincinnati area’s neighborhoods have sewer lines with old clay pipes. With age, these pipes are prone to intrusion by tree roots, misalignment, and collapse.
To diagnose your problem, we use a technology called Drain Vision. Drain Vision is a special camera that we put into your pipes to see what’s going on in your home plumbing system, without having to dig up your yard. Using this technology, we can view the inside of the pipes in your home, the pipes running under your house and through the yard, and even the sewer line going out to the street.
If we find that your clog is caused by damaged sewer line pipes, we can use a trenchless technology to actually re-line your main sewer all the way out to the street. We do this by inserting a special liner into the sewer line exiting your home. This liner is then cured into place using special resins to become a brand-new pipe – all without any yard excavation! With the new liner installed inside of the old pipe, your flow rate increases up to 80 percent.
From your home, to your yard, to your main sewer line, Thompson can handle all of your toughest plumbing problems. Schedule an appointment with us, and we’ll diagnose and address your plumbing issue, with a solution that doesn’t involve ripping up your yard.
