During warm and dry summers like the one we just had, trees in the Northwest send their roots down deep to find moisture. When rain finally returns, the impact of these hearty tree roots becomes evident. Tree roots puncture and clog sewer lines, causing thousands of dollars in damage. Fortunately, there is an easy way to detect issues that are forming in sewer lines before damage occurs.
Detect early for better treatment
Plumbing and sewer experts have created ways to find sewer problems while they are still forming. Sewer scopes allow plumbing experts to use cameras to look inside of the pipes that carry sewage away from a home and toward main utility lines. In real time, cope technicians and homeowners can see any blockages that may have formed or any tree roots beginning to grow inside the pipes. When sewer experts detect minor sewer problems, they can recommend effective, less expensive, and less disruptive repair and rehabilitation options. Lining a pipe is one trenchless solution for repair that does not require excavating to access the sewer lines. A clear sewer scope is like a clean bill of health from a doctor and should be repeated every three years, especially for older homes or properties with many trees!
Sewers and owner responsibility
In the city of Seattle, a sewer line is a homeowner's responsibility from their home to the utility main. This means any leaks or bursts that occur in the sewer lines beneath a sidewalk or the first several feet of a public street are actually the financial responsibility of a homeowner. Seattle also requires that homeowners hire licensed and bonded sewer experts when repairing these sewer lines. Raymark Plumbing and Sewer has 45 years of experience advocating for homeowners while safely repairing sewer lines. When Raymark's experts discover sewer issues extending beyond the private domain and into city property, they alert both the homeowners and city utilities to ensure their customers are not stuck with unnecessary bills.
