Sewer Line Repair in Logan Square
Sometimes, you never know what to expect when you start a job. Recently, we had a job in Logan Square that started out as a camera inspection on a sewer line. Normally, we do this because someone thinks they have a clogged pipe and need to know what is obstructing it.
You need the right tools to determine exactly where sewer clogs happen.
What we ended up learning was different than expected.
Plumbers in Logan Square
When we showed up, we found out this was a large multi-tenant building. Also, we were not the first plumbers to service this issue. The customer had already contacted 4 OTHER PLUMBERS to diagnose the issue. None of them were able to properly find and fix their clogged sewer line.
You know it’s not going well when you’re the 5th person to arrive on a job, where the previous 4 have failed.
Luckily, we have the right tools for the job.
Sewer Line Inspections Done Right
Our sewer line camera tools are able to not only find sewer clogs and capture them on camera, but also tell us exactly where the clog is in the pipe system. Our particular sewer line camera contains a 512ghz transmitter that sends a signal we can trace to the exact spot in the plumbing where the clog is.
So, you must first feed the camera tool to the farthest point possible in the line, then activate the signal to locate the clog from outside the pipe.
Fixing Clogged Sewers
This sewer clog turned out to be very bad. In the end, we had to complete the work over night, because the clog was on a main sewer line for the entire multi-unit building. Residents were not able to use their toilet or other drainage overnight while we fixed the clogged sewer.
In the end, we had to replace several sections of cast iron piping, an also some copper piping to properly fix the sewer line clog.
However, we fixed the real issue on the sewer line, where so many other plumbers had failed before us.
