Under Slab Sewer Repair
Let’s look at a recent emergency for a homeowner and an example of Choice Plumbing Under a Driveway Pipe Repair, Longwood Florida.
Here, the customer reported a problem with their sewer line under the driveway to several companies as it was backing up and clogging up. They snaked the line but it just kept coming back until Choice Plumbing were called. The homeowner had heard excellent feedback in College Park, Downtown Orlando about the thorough and professional work of the team at Choice Plumbing, so out we went.
We temporarily snaked the line and videoed to establish the pipe’s problems. Using our high tech video, we could see a number of holes and areas where the pipes were broken due to tree roots. Such a frequent problem in this part of Florida is old Terracotta pipes which break up over time from the pressure of tree roots. So having quickly established the problem, we set about removing the old Terracotta sewer pipes, cutting a section into the driveway ready to replace the entire line with strong PVC pipes. You can see from the video of us doing this repair that multiple pipes were fractured, separated, falling apart or broken, you’d never guess that something as harmless as tree roots would cause such damage to pipes!
But a lot of homes in Orlando have this problem. After checking if other sewer or water pipes in the property need replacing, we neatly filled in the trench and redid the driveway.
So the difference for this customer was that we established the actual problem, we ensured a long term solution and we showed we really were the best Choice Plumbing and Emergency Drain Services in Orlando, Florida.
Clogged Sewer Line
Choice Plumbing was called to an older home in College Park for a clogged sewer line issue that was giving the homeowner many headaches. The homeowner had used a different plumbing company in the past that had snaked the line over and over without any permanent results. So finally, after a referral from a good friend, the homeowner called Choice Plumbing.
We were able to use our state-of-the-art sewer cameras to take a look inside the pipe and figure out the “root” of the issue once and for all. Once we discovered the real problem, we were able to replace the old and cracked terracotta pipes with strong PVC pipes that will not be penetrated by tree roots in the future. Check out the video of the job, and see actual footage from inside the pipe where you can see the roots invading the pipe and causing the backups.
