What Causes Problems In Your Sewer Line?

There are a variety of reasons why you might be having issues with your sewer line when it is clogging & backing up. The most common causes include:

  • Tree roots growing into the pipes, causing blockage or holes in the pipe.
  • A low area in the pipe (pooling) caused by poor installation or soil movement.
  • Older pipes deteriorating and collapsing over time
  • Using your plumbing as a trash can, which can create blockages from excess garbage being disposed of in your toilet, sink & drain.

If you suspect you have an issue with your sewer line and would like a detailed inspection, or perhaps you know you have a problem and need trenchless repair services like pipe-bursting, Alpha Environmental has you covered. Call 503-292-5346 for more information today!

Sewer Inspection

  • Sewer Inspections with Video Scope
  • Septic Inspection

A sewer scope inspection is beneficial for many reasons, whether you think you might have an issue with your sewer line, or perhaps you’re buying a piece of property, an inspection can give you peace of mind. And because most people don’t know that they are responsible for most sewer repairs in the line if it’s between your home and the city’s line, it’s essential to minimize your risk for repairs and cleaning services.

Therefore, an extensive video inspection with full-color video via a sewer scope and state-of-the-art camera equipment should be performed to determine if there is a repair service needed with the sewer line or if a simple sewer line cleaning is in order. Alpha Environmental has the experience necessary to accurately determine if there is a problem. If so, we provide a high-quality video of your sewer scoping, a report of your current line condition, and suggested sewer maintenance – all to help you make the most informed decision possible.
