While you may not spend much time thinking about your sewer system, it is a crucial component of the plumbing of your home or business. Your sewer line performs the important task of moving the waste out of your building and sending it to the municipal sewer system. If your sewer line gets backed up or damaged, it can be extremely unpleasant and disruptive to your living space or workplace.

Signs You Need Sewer Line Repair
Your sewer line’s main function is to push any sewage or dirty water away from your property. Clogs and other damage can hinder the sewer system and make it difficult for the waste to sufficiently move out and can potentially result in a backup where the wastewater seeps into the basement or yard or back up your pipes or drains. This can result in significant property damage and can be a serious health issue.
Contact a professional for sewer repair or installation if you notice the following:
- Cracks in your foundation
- Flooded areas of your lawn
- Foul or unpleasant sewage smells
- Increased pest activity
- Slow-moving drains
- Gurgling noises from your drain
- Mold and mildew growth
The mentioned signs warrant an immediate call to a sewer repair expert. At Shark Plumbing Services, we use the latest state-of-the-art technologies to detect sewer line issues. When you give us a call, we’ll send one of our certified technicians to your property who will perform a video inspection of your sewer system. Through our flexible video camera that we pass through your sewer line, we’ll be able to accurately pinpoint the issue and determine whether a repair or replacement is necessary.
Schedule a free inspection + estimate by dialing (408) 351-0561 or completing our simple online request form. We are available 24/7 across San Jose for sewer service emergencies.
Depending on the nature of your sewer problem, our San Jose sewer experts can either perform a traditional sewer repair or replacement or a trenchless method of repair. After we perform the video inspection, we will be able to determine which method would work best.
Traditional sewer repairs involve digging up a damaged pipe and replacing it. This often is a messy job involving damage to the landscaping, sidewalks, and even adjacent buildings. This option is labor intensive and time consuming. Area residents or businesses could be without water service for days until the work is completed.
Trenchless sewer repair eliminates the need for extensive digging and damage. It also is cheaper and quicker. Our crew could either repair the damaged sewer pipe via pipe lining—molding a new pipe inside the old pipe; or pipe bursting—breaking up the old pipe while pulling a new pipe in its place.
To help you save the most money and get your sewer problems resolved promptly, we always try to use the trenchless option when possible. Our team has the training, equipment, and experience to execute the job properly and can keep in constant communication with you so you are never in the dark about our progress.
