We understand local sewer repair better than anyone, and we’ll perform our inspection, cleaning, repair, and installation services with the least amount of disruption to your home.

Video Inspection & Diagnostics

Proper sewer repair requires a video inspection. We’ll insert an advanced camera into the interior of your sewer pipe so we can see the exact nature of the blockage or leak and the condition of the pipe as a whole. Our video inspection equipment is also equipped with locators to determine the location and depth of the sewer line damage from above ground, allowing for spot repairs if possible. We can use this equipment to identify and develop a solution for:

  • Root intrusion
  • Separated pipes
  • Offset pipe joints
  • Broken pipes
  • Blockages

Sewer Repair & Installation

Depending on the nature of the issue we detect using video inspection, we can spot and repair small cracks or clean blocked pipes with snaking or hydro jetting services. However, sewer repair might not always work for older clay pipes, Orangeburg pipes, or severely damaged pipes. In this case, we offer complete sewer installation. As always, we promise fast, dependable, and comprehensive services, including:

  • Spot sewer repair or complete sewer installation
  • Root removal
  • Pipe material recommendations and delivery
  • Permit acquisition
  • Concrete removal and replacement

Sewer Line FAQs

Sewer repair is needed when your sewer is backed up or starts leaking. This is probably one of the more unpleasant plumbing situations you can encounter, but the qualified technicians at George Salet Plumbing have 40+ years of experience with the Bay Area’s sewer systems to get the job done right. Call us right away if you notice any of these signs:

  • There is a smell of sewage in your home
  • You have multiple clogged or slow-moving drains in the home
  • You hear gurgling sounds in your pipes and/or drains
  • Dark water is backing up in your tubs or showers
  • You find extra green and lush grass patches in your yard

Generally speaking, unless there is some kind of accident or earthquake activity, sewer line damage happens over time. One of the main causes of sewer line damage is roots that grow through cracked lines. One small crack in an old sewer line will make it the target for a root system to take hold and block or destroy the pipe. Flushing anything other than waste and paper—including so-called “flushable” wipes and feminine hygiene products—can also cause major blockages.

Generally, no. While on rare occasions, excess water pressure can push “soft” clogs down the line, main sewer clogs are usually more serious than routine drain clogs you might experience from a little soap scum or hair. The longer you wait to fix a sewer line problem, the more serious it will become. If you notice any signs of a blocked sewer line, call a plumbing professional at George Salet Plumbing right away for the health and safety of your home.
