Sewer backup: how to treat it?
Water backflow, washing machine that hardly empties, sewage odors, these are the signs that your sewer installation is defective
Signs to recognize a sewer problem
Water backflow from the shower or the floor drain, the appearance of bad odors, ballooning in the faucets when washing or bathing; these are the main signs when one encounters a sewer problem in one's home.
The causes of the degradation of your sewer installation
The occurrence of sewer problems can be caused by a variety of sources preventing the proper flow of water
- Poor installation of a duct originally
- Old, deteriorating ductwork
- Natural aging of your facility
- Infiltration of root, soil or rocks into the pipes
What to do if you notice a problem with your water and sewer system?
If you notice a problem with your installation, you can call on a Lesage Excavation expert, who will come and perform a camera inspection in order to give you an overview of the situation as well as the actions to take to correct it. Generally, this involves repairing an existing duct or replacing it (if it is too old, for example).
Steps to replace your sewer system
- Excavation of trench to municipal boundary
- Removal of old conduits and aqueducts
- Reconnecting new conduits with mechanical unions
- Recoating new conduits with crushed stone
- Trench backfill
