Some of our customers ask?
Q: What is a sewer cleanout?
A: A sewer clean out is a critical access point for your home’s plumbing and waste disposal system. This access pipe, which is capped, facilitates removal of blockage material. Generally, it is located outside the home. The cleanout is part of the lateral sewer line that connects your home to the municipal sewer system.

Q: Is sewer pipe covered by insurance?
A: Unfortunately, homeowner’s insurance will rarely cover the sewer line repair or replacement unless it was damaged by another party. A line that is damaged from wear or even root intrusion will not be covered on a normale homeowner policy. There are third party companies that offer policies that cover repair and replacement of the sewer line that connects to home plumbing to the municipal system.

Fort Lauderdale Emergency Sewer Line Repair, Replacement, and Cleaning Services

home lateral lineAll of your homes plumbing fixtures drains and pipes are connected to the homes biggest (and most important) piece of plumbing—the main line that connects your homes plumbing system to the municipal sewer line under the street.

Did you know homeowners are responsible for maintaining that portion of the sewer system? Yes, that sewer line connection is considered part of your plumbing system which means any time you have a clog, blockage, root infiltration, or any backup problem in your plumbing system, it’s the homeowner’s responsibility to fix it.

sewer inspection joeA home primary sewer line connection can take a beating with improper use of plumbing fixtures and drains. This sewer line can become clogged (or even collapse) to the point of needing severe repair or even replacement. The cause and prevention of clogged plumbing have been discussed in detail on our page about residential plumbing problems.

While a clogged drain or a slow-running sink or bathtub can be an inconvenience, these are generally easy to fix. When drain pipe clearing efforts don’t work, and all the drains in your home begin backing up at once is an indication of sewer drain clog.

This is when you need the full-service sewer line repair and sewer line replacement specialists at Mo-Jo Plumbing. We are expert at repairing plumbing systems inside and outside your home. We service all of Broward County sewer line problems.

While frequent sewage backups are common symptoms of a broken or ruptured sewer pipe, others you may experience are:
• Foul plumbing odors
• Gurgling drains
• Slow draining bathtub or sink
• An Overflowing toilet

5 Warning Signs of A Sewer Line Problem

home plumbing1. Frequent Drain Backups
Using a liquid drain cleaner is never the right repair solution. Though labels say, the chemical will not damage pipes depends on the pipe material. A frequent drain, especially in the lowest level of your home, could be from a blockage or break in your sewer pipe.

2. Multiple Clogged Plumbing Fixtures
An obvious suggestion of an outside sewer line issue is when more than one plumbing fixture backs up at the same time.

3. Strange Sounds or Reactions When Using Plumbing Fixtures
An example would be flushing the toilet, causing water to back up in your shower, sink, or bathtub.

4. Gurgling Noises
Gurgling noises when a toilet flushes or when water is draining in your sink, bathtub or shower are indications of a plumping line problem. Mo-Jo Plumbing inspection services will find the cause, and their plumbers have the solutions for repair or replacement.

5. A Bubbling Toilet
Your toilet water starts to bubble. To diagnose this, run water in the sink closest to the toilet for a minute or so. If the water continues to bubble or even rise, then it’s not a quirk.

6. Changes In Your Lawn
Typically a sewer line extends from your home, through your front lawn, and into the city’s sewage system. These changes to your yard would indicate a possible problem with that sewer line linking your home to the municipal system. A break in your sewer line will create an indentation on your lawn, or a soggy patch of grass when it hasn’t rained recently may be sewage from a broken sewer pipe.

Mo-Jo Plumbing will quickly inspect and diagnose your sewer plumbing problems using their sewer video camera. Learn more on our page about our sewer video camera capabilities.

Common causes of sewer pipe damage include:

Severe Pipe Damage

Severe Pipe Damage

sewer pipe brokenBroken or ruptured sewer pipes, restrict the flow of sewage through the system—resulting in immediate and frequent backups. Sewer pipes can be ruptured by shifting or settling of soil. Increased traffic or the use of heavy construction equipment on the ground above sewer pipes can damage them. Then there is corrosion of older pipes, causing them to break or collapse.

Mo-Jo Plumbing uses their in-line sewer video camera to locate the damage which allows them to offer the homeowner faster solutions with less costly repairs. To learn more vicit our page about our sewer camera capabilities.

A Sagging Sewer Line

A Sagging Sewer Line

Over time sagging sewer lines can happen, and they are out of a homeowner’s control. Sometimes referred to as a “bellied” pipe this sagging occurs when a section of the pipe sinks due to changing soil conditions. Blockage happened in this low spot as the line collects paper and was

Tree Root Pipe Damage

Tree Root Pipe Damage

tree root infiltration 1 300x225Aside from not planting trees over your sewer lines, this is another event that can’t be prevented if the home is older. These homes often had sewer lines made from porous materials like clay. Additionally, the pipe section connections weren’t as tight as today’s PVC pipes. Trees are one of a properties curb appeal, so If a home buyer doesn’t have a plumbing inspection before purchase, they probably won’t even know where their outside plumbing line is.

As tree roots grow, they latch onto a sewer pipe in search of water. As these roots grow into the sewer pipe, they expand over time, causing the line to break. Damage from tree roots will generally require pipe replacement. The plumbers with Mo-Jo Plumbing are experts at sewage pipe repair and replacement. Mo-Jo Plumbing offers Trenchless Sewer Line Repair or Replacement as well as Traditional Sewer Line Repair or Replacement. Call us at 786-346-5020 to discuss your problem and explore solutions.

Following are other causes of sewer pipe damage which are preventable. 

A Toilet Is Not A Trash Can

Flushing Debris Down the Toilet

toilet not a trashcanIt should be obvious a toilet is not a trash can, but clogged toilets are a common problem caused by too much toilet paper, a child’s toy, or other debris. It’s important to teach children that the bathroom toilet is a receptacle only for human waste and toilet paper. When a toilet blockage is a frequent event, it can build up further down the line requiring sewer drain cleaning or repair.

Pouring Grease Down a Drain

Pouring Grease Down a Drain

Grease and oils poured down drains are one of the biggest culprits of clogged sewer lines. Use a jar or coffee can for collecting fat and cooking oil. When they cool they solidify and should be thrown in a trash can. People mistakenly think that pouring grease down a drain followed by running hot water will disburse it. That doesn’t work because once the grease cools, it hardens and sticks to your pipes becoming part of the many buildups that can clog sewer lines. Educating the whole family about things you shouldn’t put down your garbage disposal or drain goes a long way toward trouble-free plumbing.

Mo-Jo Plumbing Sewer Line Repair & Replacement Traditional Option

As Sewer Line Repair & Replacement Specialists, Mo-Jo Plumbing offers two choices for Sewer Line Repair & Replacement are 1) Traditional Sewer Line Repair or Replacement
or 2) Trenchless Sewer Line Repair and Replacement

Traditional Sewer Line Repair or Replacement
The traditional repair sewer line method will be your only option if our sewer camera inspection shows that your sewer line is bellied, sagging, or collapsed a backhoe is used to dig up the area surrounding the pipe path to access the section of the pipe causing the issue. When the repair or replacement is complete, the backhoe is then used to refill the space.

The traditional method can cause damage to other parts of your property (concrete walkways and driveways, landscaping, etc.) but, unfortunately, it may be the best or only option depending on the condition and configuration of your pipes.

Trenchless Sewer Line Repair & Replacement Option

Our trenchless sewer repair method is much less damaging and invasive than traditional trench digging. Trenchless sewer repair is sometimes called trenchless pipe bursting. We start by making a small access hole where the damaged pipe starts and ends. We then insert a cable and pull it through. The cable follows the path of the existing line, while simultaneously pulling the replacement line into position. This new pipe bursts the old pipe into pieces to become a new pipe.

Since the only the dirt disturbed is at the beginning and end of the line, the trenchless repair method creates less damage to driveways and yards than traditional repair methods. Our trenchless solution means that your drains will be repaired quickly.
