Detecting & Repairing Leaking Sewer Lines
Most people think of waterlines or faucets when you mention plumbing leaks. Windsor Plumbing can help you with those, but sewer pipes can develop leaks too. Usually, the sign that you have a leak in your sewer main is a soggy area in your yard. The water leaking from your sewer pipe is saturating the ground instead of flowing into the city sewer system. If you think you may have a leak in your sewer main, call us for water leak detection. We can investigate the situation and determine if that is the case. If it is, we will explain what needs to be done to correct it and how much it will cost.

Video Sewer Inspections
Video inspection of sewer lines isn’t just for property buyers. Our video inspection service is the best way to diagnose sewer line problems. Using the video camera, we can examine the entire line. This sometimes means finding and fixing multiple issues at once. It also gives property owners significant information for making decisions when choosing a solution. Whether you are a homeowner or a business owner, Windsor Plumbing is the one to call for sewer line inspection services in Central Ohio. We also provide drain cleaning services for drain lines and drain pipes.
Sewer Main Hydro Jetting
A more common problem with sewer mains is blockage. This usually presents itself by slow drains or a toilet that is backed up. For clearing clogged sewer pipes, there isn’t anything better than hydro jetting. The high-pressure water jetting scours your pipes clean and flushes debris out of the system. This is not only effective in clearing the pipes but also helps prevent future clogs from developing.
Sewer Main Frequently Asked Questions
When Should I Replace My Sewer Main Line?
Despite its age or the material it is made of, you should call Windsor Plumbing for sewer main line replacement if you notice these warning signs:
- Strange, foul odor in your yard – This could indicate a sewer main line leak or break has occurred and is sending sewage upward into your yard
- Persistent clogs – If you’re dealing with persistent clogs (more than once a year) despite using proper flushing methods, you may have a bigger problem that replacement can resolve
- Age – Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever! If your sewer main line is old and giving you trouble, replacement is the answer.
What Causes Sewer Main Line Damage?
When it comes to damaged sewer lines, the most common problem occurs with homes built prior to 1980: tree roots! Over time, tree roots can grow and, eventually, invade the joints of the pipes. Sewer lines can also become damaged from digging to close to the pipe and inevitable deterioration to the pipes as they age.
How Do I Fix A Sewer Main Line Clog?
While some causes of sewer main line clogs are not preventable, such as tree roots or collapsing pipes, others can be prevented with a bit of extra precaution! Flushing solid objects down the toilet or washing excessive food and oils down the kitchen drain can contribute to sewer main drain clogs. Being mindful of what you put through your plumbing to help prevent your sewer main line from clogging.
