About Skokie, IL

We are proud to be a Better Business Bureau Accredited A+ Rating plumbing company and to serve the Skokie community. Skokie is marketed as The World’s Largest Village. It is located 15 miles north of downtown Chicago and used to be known as Niles Center. Skokie acquired a large Jewish population after World War II and is home to the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center. Skokie has a ton of exciting activities for the whole family. Have fun at Altitude Trampoline Park, the free Skokie Heritage Museum, or their beautiful Park District.

The Skokie sewer system was originally constructed in the 1920’s and was designed to carry both sanitary flows and storm water runoff to the water treatment plant with overflows to the North Shore Channel during heavy rainstorms. The system was more than adequate for a small rural community; however, modern Skokie, altered the above-ground landscape and created a storm water runoff control problem. After a heavy rainstorm, Skokie’s storm water often overwhelms the sewer system and can create a backup of combined sewage in basements throughout the Village, presenting both a health hazard and threats of property damage.

This is why it is so important to hire a trusted professional plumber who is fully versed in home and municipal drainage systems. Every property is unique, but our Skokie plumbers can not only help you identify the cause of and fix your flooded basement, but we will also help you understand the risk of flooding in other areas of your home or business.

Skokie IL Sewer Repair and Sewer Cleanout Installation

Published on October 28th, 2020

Repairing a Clogged Sewer Line

Recently, we had a pluming repair job in Skokie for a clogged sewer line. We try to be as minimally invasive as possible, so we started by power rodding the main line in the basement.

First, we started by locating the main sewer line in the interior of the home.

However, we were not able to clear the clogged sewer line after several attempts at power rodding the main line.

Sewer Power Rodding and Repair

We were able to locate the section of sewer line that was causing the clog.  It was outside of the home, located in the front yard.

After locating the clogged section, it was easy to power rod the pipe and fix the actual clog.  Unfortunately, the damage had already been done, so we needed to repair the broken sewer line and make sure the owner had proper access to the line from the exterior of the home.

The Final Sewer Cleanout Installation

In the end, we installed a new sewer cleanout on the main sewer line outside of the home.  It is crucial to have access to the sewer line for cleaning, and this home had no external access.

With a lot of trees in the area, it is almost certain that the sewer line will get damaged and clogged again.  Having this sewer cleanout access outside of the home will allow for easy future cleanouts and rodding of clogs and other obstructions.
