Snaking the line
We'll start your sewer line service by running a flexible, metal device down the line. This device is called a 'snake.' It helps us feel for any damage in the line, and can dislodge most blockages. Most of the time, this simple service is enough to get a newer sewer line up and running.
If snaking the line uncovers any problems, we may use video inspection to get a closer look. This involves inserting a tiny camera in the sewer line and recording everything we see. The camera is on the end of a long cable, just like the snake, so we're able to run it down the line to find the problem. Learn more about video sewer inspection.
Locating the problem area
Once our video inspection camera has reached the blockage or damage in your line, we're able to pinpoint its exact location in the ground and depth. That way, when it's time to dig, we'll know right where to start.
Your free estimate
Video inspection allows us to provide you with a DVD or VHS cassette of your sewer, along with a free estimate for your repairs. And, since you're dealing with a full-service specialist in sewers, we can do all the necessary excavation and repairs to get your sewer up and running.
Excavation and repair
Many sewer service companies will send you to the yellow pages as soon as they uncover a problem with your line. But we are a full-service sewer specialist, so you never need to look any further than John's for a solution. Once we've identified the problem in your sewer line, we can help you fix it. Learn more about our excavation and repair services. If possible, we will suggest a discounted preventive maintenance program to keep the line running. If the problem is more serious, we can excavate and repair or replace the line for you.
