Although your sewer line is out of sight, there are some signs that indicate a possible problem. A sewage backup is often the first sign that you could use our sewer cleaning professionals. If the clog is limited to a single drain, it is probably a problem with that specific drain. However, if you have trouble with a backup in multiple drains, such as when you flush a toilet or run the shower, the main sewer line may need cleaning or repair.
Signs you need sewer cleaning include:
- Multiple slow drains or frequent clogs - If it's just one slow drain, then you just need a simple drain cleaning. But if you're noticing that a few or all of your drains are draining slowly then you could use our Tyler sewer cleaning professionals.
- Sewer gas odors - If foul odors are coming from your plumbing appliances, that means the air isn't ventilating properly due to a blockage in your sewer system.
- Gurgling sounds - If air is coming out of your toilet while you're using your shower, that means that there is a clog in your sewer and pressure is building. Call in our Tyler sewer cleaning experts before a burst.
- Backflow - If sewer water is coming out of your appliances, then your sewer problems are so drastic that pressure has reversed directions.
Sewer line damage can have a variety of causes. Pipes that are older than 25 years may be corroded and result in pipe failure. Other common causes of damage include cracks in the line, tree root intrusion, connections that are not correctly aligned, and shifting of the ground beneath the sewer line. Regardless of the cause, our plumbers are equipped to detect and repair problems with sewer lines in Tyler and surrounding communities.
You may need to have your sewer line repaired if you have noticed:
- Foundation cracks
- Areas of the lawn that are greener and lusher than surrounding grass
- Indentations in the lawn
- Wastewater pooling in the yard
- Insect or rodent infestation
- Skyrocketing water bills

In the past, the only way to locate and repair problems with sewer lines was to dig up the line. This invasive method causes damage to surrounding landscaping and hardscaping that may require extensive restoration work. Today, trenchless sewer repair methods make it possible to fix sewer line problems without tearing up your yard. Here at Rudd Plumbing, we utilize advanced technology, including video camera inspection and trenchless sewer repair, to replace the damaged section of pipe without the need for excavation.
Why Schedule a Sewer Camera Inspection?
Sewer camera inspections are a simple, non-invasive way for plumbers to identify problems in your sewer line with precision. Before the advent of this technology, finding the exact location of a clog or area of damaged pipe was a much more tedious task involving a less-than-ideal combination of guesswork and excavation. Now, with flexible high-resolution drain cameras, our plumbers can view real-time footage of the insides of your sewer pipes to pinpoint the source of the problem and get to work on the right solution.
If you have been experiencing issues with your plumbing, but you’re not sure what could be causing them, a video plumbing inspection is a good place to start! Get in touch with us today to learn more about this service.
How Does Trenchless Sewer Repair Work?
If your plumber has determined that your sewer lines need to be repaired, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by how big of a job that might be. But with trenchless sewer repair methods, you don’t have to worry!
Here’s how it works:
- We’ll perform an initial inspection of your main line to see how far down the line the problem is and what type of sewer pipe damage we’re dealing with. What we find and the extent of the damage will determine which trenchless sewer repair method to use, how long it will take,.
- Next, we’ll perform any needed cleaning to prepare the damaged area of pipe for the next step. For example, if we see that your sewer line has been broken through by tree roots, we’ll remove them with a rotating blade to clear the area.
- If the damage to the pipe isn’t extensive, pipe lining may be the right course of action. This method relines the inside of the pipe using a special epoxy-coated bladder that essentially forms a new pipe within the walls of the old one. More extensive damage may call for pipe bursting, in which the damaged section of pipe is fractured and a brand new pipe is pulled into place.
- After the work is done, the last step is a final inspection to ensure that the repair meets our rigorous standards of quality, and all access points will be refilled.
