Hi!  Today we’re snaking a main sewer line from the house. I think, the way I see it, this sewer line may have tree roots blocking the sewer

line. I see there are some big trees here and there are some trees down here as my sewer camera shows.

We can use hydro jetting for sewer cleaning, removing stubborn roots from sewer pipes and drain lines. If the pipe is badly damaged, we can patch it with trenchless sewer repairs.

Main Sewer Line Cleaning NJ: Removing Roots From Your Sewer Pipe

We’ll find out where when we see where the lock is. This is our hugest snake, it’s 600 pounds and it’s automatic to clear a blocked sewer pipe. Also, you need to realize that the T here is very sharp, very tight so you don’t lose this into people’s sewage and create another problem. We’re just about ready to start the process and you see there is water down in here and this will all go away once the snake hits the sewer pipe blockage.

We get its little head in first and we just start it. And the snake is going down now. Sometimes, the sewer blockage is very stubborn and it will be very hard to clean. And sometimes it really will be like a snap job.

You see the water runs a little deep. The water is just going to empty and the snake is actually marked every few feet, you can see the markings here.

The water is still there, so the blockage is still there. The sewers will be nice and clean. You see how the water went down really fast? Basically we hit something and the water just went down. This is going to be something really huge and I think there’s a about a quarter of the cable in down there.

It’s one of the very best in the industry out there.  So It’s already clean and as you see the water is already gone. And as you see, we’re just going to snake it a couple more times and it’ll go from there.

Sewer Repairs for Tree Root Damage

Tree roots can do more than just clog your sewer line. They can also cause the pipes to crack or collapse, in which case you’ll also need professional sewer repairs or sewer replacement. In most cases, NJ plumbers nj can use trenchless sewer repair techniques to fix or replace damaged pipes.

  • Pipe lining is commonly used for sewer repairs in NJ. We can install a new resin and fiberglass liner to stop water leaks from the sewer pipe.
