Maintenance is key in avoiding a sewer line backup

Having your sewer line cleaned is one of the most overlooked home maintenance tasks. One highly rated provider explains why it's so important and how it works.

3 things to know before replacing your sewer line

One highly rated provider shares three things to look for when determining the price of replacing your sewer line and other factors that may affect the price.

Can a missing cap clog a sewer line?

Dear Angie: We have a clogged sewer line, which the first plumber could not unclog. A second plumber ran a camera and said that the missing sewer cap was in the drain, causing the back up; he quoted me $1,300 to break up some concrete, retrieve the cap and put a new cap on. Does that seem like a reasonable solution and price?

5 ways to avoid a sewer repair or drain cleaning scam

Don't fall victim to a unnecessary service or sewer or drain cleaning scam. Here are five ways to help avoid becoming a victim.

arrived in just a few hours. He accessed the job site and, fearing the easy path might cause more damage; he determined conditions necessitated a Plan-B. Plan-B required removal of the washer and dryer to access the main clean-out pipe instead of the easier to reach one. He also had to remove the basement door to get the equipment inside. He removed the clog, reinstalled the washer and dryer but had to give up rehanging the door.

then scheduled someone to return with a sewer-

to show them and us the "root" cause of our problem. This camera inspection was included in the service call charge. Although the camera showed big problems which ended up costing us a lot more money, I'm glad they had it because it took all of the guess work out of the decision. We were able to precede with confidence that the additional work work was necessary.

were great! They had to go through my woods to the road to hook up the sewer. Some trees had to be removed, and the weather was not good. They kept at it and finished quickly, given the weather conditions. They used 6 inch rather than 4 inch pipe as other companies offered. They were courteous and efficient. When I initially had companies submit bids for the work, they were much lower than the others.

's wife who takes care of office calls was very helpful; they got the permits for me and took the check downtown. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs to be hooked up to the city sewer.

" Came back from vacation (isn't it always the case...) and the next morning, toilets backed up. Contacted
Indianapolis Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
Plumber and he assessed it was a main sewer line, and recommended this company. Contacted them about 12:30pm and they were here by about 2:30pm. All they needed to know was where the trap was, and they got working. They were done in less than 30 minutes. The guys were very courteous and business like, and explained the warranties associated to the work. Hope not to need them again, but would if the needs arises again.

returned call promptly, gave me an approximate time of arrival the next morning and was early.
He brought equipment in, ran the cable through the sewer line twice, making sure the job was complete, and cleaned up after the job was done.
His price was extremely fair, and I would recommend his service to anyone.

"I was basically shell shocked! So I called another plumber to get a second opinion. They came out, assessed the problem and found a dry drain in the laundry room. He added a quart of water to fill the trap and the smell dissipated immediately. After airing out the kitchen for about 5 minutes the smell was gone.



So, how does I assess this situation. I know that
Indianapolis Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
dropped the ball and for so highly rated a company to miss a
Indianapolis Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
dry drain is ridiculous. I lost 4 hours of my time plus the cost of the coupon and the additional cost of the second plumber because of a missed diagnosis of a
Indianapolis Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
problem. The next time I need a plumber, you can be sure I will not call
Indianapolis Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
, but the company who solved the problem in 10 minutes.



A NOTE to Angie's List: Subject Dry Drain Trap. It would be helpful to pass on a tip to your subscribers regarding this. I was told I had an unused drain and I should try to keep moisture in the trap to keep sewer gasses from getting through. I'm sure you can do a great job in passing on the message. It would have been helpful to me.

"The damaged pipe was about 6 feet deep. He dug about 10 feet of damaged or incorrectly installed sewer lines and replaced it.

"To clean the main sewer pipe the plumber had to break the clean-out drain access cap. The cap was obviously agreed to be replaced after drain had been cleaned. Unlike prior cleaning which took almost two hours this cleaning to about 15 minutes.
The plumber had snaked the pipe and pulled out roots which had infiltrated the integrity of the sewer line.
The plumber indicated that I would have to set another appointment to have video
Indianapolis Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
run in pipe.An appointment was set for the video but the plumber did not keep the appointment even though I had call the day of the appointment to confirm the agreed upon service.
The plumber also did not have the replacement clean-out cap at time of service and failed to deliver replacement for almost 4 MONTHS !
When plumber finally came out to replace cap in October I showed him pictures of where drain had backed up and flowed out onto basement floor. I asked to have drain snaked again thinking that the job might have been incomplete the first and second time. I was told that they would not honor their warranty and clean drain again because they feared the pipe might collapse.
However, they would do it if I paid another $175!
Of course I never received the VIDEO INSPECTION that was part of the original deal.

"after using snake on section of drain pipe, I was inform that the main sewer line had excessive slug and they could not perform the second part of Angie big deal agreement to run video camera through line and see internal condition of pipe.
also, plumber identified the sewer clean-out access which was at other end of basement floor and stated that next cleaning should run through this point.
Fair rating reflects although this was an Angie List BIG DEAL, I did not receive the agreed upon service.
Important: read following review where company again failed to provide agree upon service and could not find time to replace clean-out cover.

brought everything they needed including a garbage bag to carry away small roots that were removed during the cleaning. There were several areas of our line that had minor issues. The first area was a section where the two original tiles had slightly separated; one
Indianapolis Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
was laying on top of the next tile instead of next to it. Another area was a curve from our line to meet the city sewer; the trough had to curve slightly in order to connect to the city line. Our home was built in 1971 and the sewer line still has the original clay tiles. We have a large maple tree in the front yard; these trees are notorious for spreading their roots into sewer lines. Fortunately they found very few roots. The area where our private line connects to the city line was not a smooth curve due to the nature of the ceramic tile shape. Consequently our sewage and water runs smoothly to this place, then meets a "wall" before changing direction to the city sewer line.

explained that this only means the flow is somewhat slowed in order to make the "turn". Nothing was stuck at that spot.
The cable with the camera encountered the "split tiles" and was stuck because it ran into the raised tile portion.

had me turn on all the faucets and flush a toilet a couple time. The increased water flow was then able to lift up the camera/cable to continue along the line.
Our sewer line basically got a "clean bill of health". We performed this service proactively because of the age of our sewer line. we've noticed many homes in our subdivision with mounds of dirt from emergency clean-outs and wanted to avoid unexpected sewer expenses.

"They were prompt on the first day. He cleaned the sewer drain from the clean-out to the street pipe. There was very little to clean out. He cleaned up completely. They arrived at the end of the time period on the second day. Two men brought the camera unit in, placed it in the sewer drain, and showed me the condition of the entire pipe. There conclusion was that it was in very good condition for an old 6 inch clay pipe. No service was needed to repair any part of the pipe. Again, the clean-up was complete. All service providers were pleasant and clean. Great job!
