If you’re experiencing strange phenomenon when using your plumbing fixtures like frequent drain backups or multiple clogged fixtures, you could have some major issues that need qualified specialists to diagnose.
Some problems compound over a period of months or years, failing slowly and under the radar. Some problems are sudden; caused by external forces like improper installation, tree root intrusion, blockage or corrosion. Often, a minor problem ignored is an indication of a larger, more disruptive problem looming in the walls or under your home or business.
Rush Plumbing’s Seattle sewer drain cleaning specialists will perform a methodical camera inspection of the pipes leaving your home or business and create end-to-end solutions that fit your unique situation and budget. Some common methods we use for sewer line cleaning are traditional drain cleaning tools such as snakes and augers, environmentally friendly drain cleaning solutions, high-pressure water with a special nozzle to clear the blockage, or detection of damage from corrosion, tree roots, and broken or separated pipes. We use the latest pipeline video inspection tools to assess damage caused by roots and other hazards. This non-destructive method allows us to identify the exact location of the problem and fix it efficiently, with minimal digging.
If you are considering renovating old piping in your home, or you need extensive plumbing repairs, you may want to consider installation of PEX piping for additional savings and reassurance of safety and reliability.

Video Inspection of Your Sewer
To know how and where to repair a sewer correctly, it must undergo a video inspection. Video drain inspection can tell if you have root intrusion, separated pipes, offset pipe joints, or a broken pipe, among other things. To do this, we insert a small video camera into the sewer pipe, which sends live video of the pipe’s condition or the blockage back to us. Our video inspection equipment also has locators that give us the location and depth of the sewer line damage. This also often allows for spot repairs rather than larger, more intrusive efforts.

At Rush Plumbing, we offer end-to-end solutions for sewer inspection, repair, and installation. As always, we provide fast and dependable service, minimal disruption to your home or commercial business, and honest pricing at a flat rate.

This includes pipe material recommendations and delivery, root removal, video inspection, spot sewer repair, sewer line cleaning, as well as complete sewer installation. We even fix under-slab water leaks.
Some Common Sewer Line Problems
Sewer lines generally deteriorate and sustain damage over time. A major cause of damage to these older sewer lines is from roots. One tiny crack in the sewer line can give a nearby root system enough of an opening to take hold and eventually block or destroy the pipe. You can clean your sewer pipes to remove roots but is usually a temporary solution, especially for older systems where it can actually destroy them. In these cases, we would advise replacing the sewer using materials such as plastic.
How Do I Know if I Need Sewer Drain Cleaned or Repair?
If your sewer is backed up or leaking, it must be repaired, just cleaning it out won’t work. Depending on the condition of your sewer line pipe, only a section of the sewer may need to be replaced. To determine if you need to replace a section of sewer pipe or the entire sewer pipe, we run a video inspection to assess the condition of your sewer.
On top of the expense, this is probably one of the most unpleasant plumbing challenges you will ever encounter. Because it is an extremely complicated repair job compared to something like a faucet or pipe repair, you need qualified technicians who know what they are doing.
