At LimRic, we provide a full range of sewer line services to help get things back up and running as soon as possible.
Sewer Video Inspection
To inspect your sewer, one of our technicians will insert a rod with a high-resolution camera on its tip into your sewer lines. These high-tech cameras are flexible, which allows them to easily traverse the turns and twists in your sewer lines and thoroughly examine pipes and pipe walls. Sewer video inspection is critical in identifying problems, allowing technicians to immediately assess the lines and address any issues.

Sewer Line Replacement
When it comes to damage to your sewer line, there can be a number of causes. Some of the most common ones include:
- Wear and tear/aging
- Tree roots growing into sewer pipe holes
- Inadequate maintenance
- Freeze and thaw cycles
- Buildup of debris, hair, sludge, etc.
- Poor pipe layout ad design
- Nearby construction
- And more
Sometimes, it’s not possible or feasible to get your sewer line repaired. If that’s the case, then it’s probably time to schedule a sewer line replacement. One of the most common methods is trenchless replacement, which not only offers a less invasive process but is actually more cost-effective as well, allowing you to save both time and money. Contact our team of drain cleaning experts for more information.
There are a few ways that you can maintain your own drain, like knowing what not to flush down the toilet, regularly flushing your drains with hot (not boiling) water, and never using any chemical agents to clean it. However, one of the best things you can do to help prevent clogged tubs and sink drains and other issues is investing in professional drain cleaning once every year. This can help to reduce the occurrence of problems in the future. For more information, contact our professional drain cleaning and drainage system repair company.
Unclog Sewer Line
If your drain isn’t draining properly, your sewer line cleanout is leaking, or you have a backup of some sort, then you could have a clogged sewer line. This can be due to pipe damage, trees infiltrating the drain, a buildup of grease, fats, and oils that have accumulated in the drain, or other causes. If you see drainage around your sewer line cleanout, have multiple backed-up drains, see or smell sewage coming from your floor drains, or water backs up in the shower when you flush the toilet, you likely have a clog, and it’s time to rely on professional service from LimRic to unclog your sewer line.
Knowing what to do in the event of a clogged toilet can help prevent water overflow and messy cleanup. Some best practices to unclog a toilet include knowing how to use the flapper to stop the bowl from filling up, using the proper plunger, warming up your plunger before use, and plunging correctly with a focus on both downward and upward motions. For exceptionally difficult clogs, you can consider using a drain snake, but it might be best to let the professionals handle it. If your toilet is clogged and you can’t clear it, or see water backing up in your sink and shower, it might be a sign of another problem, and you should contact the expert drain cleaning team at LimRic as soon as possible.
There can be a number of issues that contribute to a clogged sink, like the P-trap, the garbage disposal, and more. Typical approaches to unclogging a sink include plunging, assembling, and cleaning the P-trap, clearing the clogged garbage disposal, and using home remedies involving baking soda and vinegar, etc. If you’re facing a stubborn sink clog that you just can’t seem to clear, then reach out to our company for professional sewer line and drain cleaning services.
