When the Unthinkable Happens, Messick Plumbing Has Your Back

Sewage Backup: Blocked Sewer Drain - Messick Plumbing

Why Does Sewage Backup Occur?

Sewage backups can be caused by a variety of issues, and pinpointing the exact cause requires a professional assessment. Common reasons include:

  1. Clogs and Blockages: Over time, debris, grease, and foreign objects can accumulate in your pipes, leading to blockages and restricting the flow of wastewater.
  2. Tree Roots Intrusion: Tree roots seeking moisture and nutrients can invade sewer lines, causing clogs and even structural damage.
  3. Broken or Cracked Pipes: Aging or damaged sewer pipes can develop cracks or fractures, allowing sewage to leak into the surrounding soil.
  4. Heavy Rainfall and Flooding: Excessive rainwater can overwhelm the sewer system, leading to backups, especially if the municipal sewer system is already strained.
  5. Improper Installation: Poorly installed plumbing systems may be more prone to backups and other issues.

Messick Plumbing’s Expert Diagnosis

At Messick Plumbing, we employ advanced diagnostic tools to accurately identify the cause of your sewage backup. Our experienced technicians use:

  • Video Inspection Cameras: We insert a high-resolution camera into your pipes to visually inspect the interior, allowing us to identify blockages, cracks, or other issues.
  • Smoke Testing: This non-invasive method helps us locate leaks and identify areas where sewer gases may be escaping.

Comprehensive Inspection

Our plumbing experts conduct a thorough inspection of your entire sewage system. This includes assessing the main sewer line, lateral lines, and connections to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the issue.
