Water and Sewer Lines—Dual Line Repair
Water lines bring fresh water into your home while sewer or septic lines carry it away after it's been used. These drainage systems are crucial to the plumbing in your home. Service Now Home Services can repair or replace broken or leaking exterior water service lines from the property boundary to your home's foundation. Our expert plumbers can also repair or replace your exterior sewer/septic line within your property boundary. Buried pipes can break or degrade over time. From unblocking clogs to complete repair or replacement jobs, our local and licensed specialists can help.
Failing water service or sewer/septic lines often result in:
- Low water pressure
- Water leaks or sewage in your basement
- Water leaks or sewage in your yard
Water Service Lines
The pipes that channel clean water into your home and carry away wastewater to the sewer are often taken for granted by homeowners—until something goes wrong. Getting freshwater into your home is essential. Your water main connects your home plumbing to the public water supply. This main line transports water from the public main into the numerous pipes in your home. The main water line of most homes is underground and cannot be easily accessed without digging. Service Now Home Services offers full-service repairs including main water line repair, main water line replacement, and main water line cleaning.
Identifying issues with your main water line can be difficult, but here are some common symptoms that you may need a plumbing inspection:
- Your pipes are old
- A sudden spike in water use on your utility bill
- Water found pooling somewhere in your yard
Minor water leaks from your main water line can go months or even years undetected if the leak is small and slow. If this happens, the damage caused by the leak at this point can be too large to repair, and you will need to replace it entirely. Carefully monitor your family's water usage so you can catch discrepancies early on. A large water main leak will often come up through the earth and form puddles on your property and around your home. If this happens, you need to call Service Now Home Services immediately to repair it!
Your main sewer line carries waste from your home to a treatment facility. It takes all the liquid and solid waste from toilets, tubs, and sinks out of your home toward the main sewer under the street in front of your home. The main sewer line is connected to the city sewer system; however, the homeowner is responsible for their personal sewer line that resides within the boundaries of their property.
Main sewer lines can become clogged, and when this happens, you may experience frequent clogs from appliances within the home. If a noticeable sewer smell is coming from some of your plumbing fixtures or they keep clogging on a regular basis, it could be a main sewer line clog. Service Now Home Services provides main sewer line repair, main sewer line replacement, or main sewer line cleaning in Kane County, DeKalb County, DuPage County, Ogle County, and Lee County in Northern Illinois.
Our sewage and plumbing professionals can repair any of the following situations:
Grease buildup or foreign objects can clog your sewer lines.
Over time, pipes can deteriorate, break, crack, or collapse.
A bellied pipe is one in which a section of the pipe has sunk due to ground and soil conditions. A valley of debris, waste, and water is created.
- Leaking Joints
When the seals between pipes have broken, water will leak into the surrounding area.
- Tree Roots
Trees or shrubs dig their roots into the ground, looking for water. Sometimes these roots invade your sewer lines and damage them, preventing flow and regular cleaning.
- Off-Grade Pipes
If pipes are misaligned or constructed with poor materials, they may easily corrode.
- Burst Pipes
We replace any and all broken pipes!
- Pipe Relining
The pipe relining sewer repair process creates a "pipe within a pipe" in order to restore flow and function. Using epoxy relining materials that mold to the inside walls of the existing pipe, we create a new inner wall.
We offer both traditional sewer line repair methods as well as trenchless sewer line repair methods.
