Kitchen Sewer Repair in Lincolnwood IL

Kitchen Sewer Line Repair in Lincolnwood

Recently, we took a residential plumbing job in Lincolnwood.  Initially, the customer reported their laundry line backing up in the basement.  Our first response was to power rod the line to clear any obstructions in it.

After rodding the line for several hours, we were unable to clear the clog.  So, we excavated the line in the basement and found out that the laundry line and the kitchen line were joined together.

Sewer Unclogging Outside the Home

Using a sewer locating diagnostic tool, we found a buried catch basin outside of the home.  In order to access the catch basin, we had to remove brick pavers, and excavate through a concrete staircase.

The basin was completely full of grease from the kitchen line.  So, we had an EPA Certified pump truck come and remove all of the grease clogging the sewer line.

After further evaluation, we discovered that only the laundry and kitchen lines were connected to the catch basin.  With the owner’s permission, we removed the catch basin so no more grease could collect and cause future clogs.

We installed a 4 inch cleanout and connected the new line directly to the building’s underground sewer line.  Now, the catch basin is gone, and the line connects directly to the building’s sewer line.  And, there is a cleanout for easy access in the future.

Repairing Completed a Sewer Line Job

We ended up excavating a log of concrete and dirt both inside and outside of the home. This required a lot of rebuilding after we fixed the clogged sewer line.

We re-patched the concrete in the basement.  We rebuilt the concrete staircase outside, and also reinstalled the brick pavers.  Finally, we repaired the drywall and painted in the basement.

The plumbing job took two days. First, we replaced an old ejector pit that caved in.  The pit was originally made of clay tile, and had eroded to the point that it leaked.  We replaced it with a new plastic ejector pit and installed a new sewer pump.
