We recommend home owners obtain a sewer inspection if your home is older than 20 years. Although the sewer line may be fairly new as compared to homes built before 1950, for example, tree roots can still clog up a 20-year-old sewer line.

Reasons to Inspect the Sewer Line

Tree roots growing into sewer lines is a common problem. Roots crawl into tiny openings and expand in the sewer line, latching on to other debris that typically cause backups such as grease or eggshell waste.

Sometimes chemicals can kill the trees roots but if the roots reappear, the pipe may be damaged and require excavation to fix the problem.



In areas where pipes must be buried deeper, and feeding the new pipe behind a splitter doesn't work, a trench must be dug the length of the main sewer line.

Sewer pipes can also get clogged up with an accumulation of grease, muck, and other things that may get washed down there day after day.

If you are experiencing sewer line problems, low water pressure, leaks or flooding, give us a call at 604-512-5211 and have one of our licensed plumbers.

We are available 7 days a week to service your sewer line problems.

Our Pipe Genie System is the finest system available to replace your lines without digging a trench or disrupting your landscaping, sidewalks or driveway!

We use our own "Pipe Genie" Trenchless pipe replacement machines to replace your water line without having to dig a trench. This means no damages to your lawns, gardens, driveways etc. We dig just 2 holes.

The first hole is where we place our machine which will pull the sewer line through. and we then pull the new water line that is placed at the second hole. 

Broken, cracked, offset or collapsed pipe - damaged pipes due to shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, etc. are all sewer line problems

Blockage - grease build-up or a foreign object is restricting or prohibiting proper flow and/or cleaning of the line.

Corrosion - the pipe has deteriorated and/or broken, causing collapses in the line and restricting flow.

Bellied pipe - a section of the pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions, creating a valley that collects paper and waste.

Leaking joints - the seals between pipes have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.

Root infiltration - tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning and/or have damaged the line.
