Chicago Sewer Repair and Replacement
We repair any issues with sewer lines and pipes. We fix sewer backups, tree root intrusion, remove scale, restore cast iron sewer pipe. We are a family owned business with years of experience repairing sewer lines in Chicago.
Sewer line replacement is another one of the services we specialize in. A sewer camera inspection allows us to see if a sewer line needs to be replaced. Most of the time, the sewer line can be repaired using the trenchless sewer techniques mentioned above.
If the damage to the pipe is minimal, sewer pipe lining is often the most appropriate course of action. It’s the least invasive method of trenchless sewer repair. It also costs the least amount of money and takes the shortest amount of time.
When the damage to a sewer is too significant for pipe lining to fix, sewer pipe bursting is the next best option. Pipe bursting is slightly more invasive than pipe lining, but it is still preferable to digging up your yard to perform a traditional type of repair.
We do traditional sewer line replacement. We also do trenchless sewer repair where we reline your sewer pipe with minimal digging.

When a sewer pipe becomes too clogged for mechanical snakes and sewer rodding techniques to be effective, a process called hydro jetting is used. Hydro jetting removes heavy clogs and obstructions caused by materials such as tree roots and grease while simultaneously scouring the inside of sewer pipes. Hydro jetting is also sometimes called high-pressure water jetting.
Hydro jetting is performed using a long hose with a specialized, high-pressure nozzle. The hose is connected to a tank of water and pushed into a drain or sewer line. The hose then cleans the inside of the pipe by delivering a forceful blast of water, sometimes up to 20 gallons of water per minute.
A sewer camera inspection is typically performed before and after jetting the line. The initial inspection tells us if hydro jetting is the most appropriate course of action. It also shows us the location of the blockage, as well as the condition of the pipe. If a pipe is too damaged from tree root infiltration, hydro jetting cannot be done, and the pipe will need to be replaced. The follow-up inspection is used to assess the effectiveness of the jetting.
Hydro jetting will likely solve any drainage issues you’ve been having. It will also prolong the lifespan of your pipes. The sooner your pipes are cleaned, the better, so give us a call at 773-563-4543 or click the button below to schedule an appointment.
Sewer Pipe Descaling
If you notice your home or business drainage getting progressively worse, it may be the result of scale buildup in your pipes. Scale is a hardened coating made from a combination of debris and wastewater. It builds up over time with regular use, especially in cast iron sewer pipes. Large scale deposits can impede the flow of water to and from your property if left untreated.
We restore cast iron pipes that have a buildup of scale using specialized equipment. We use a tool that grinds away the scale deposits that have built up inside the pipe, leaving it with a smooth, clean surface.
Descaling doesn’t just solve your drainage problems. It also increases the longevity of your pipes and reduces the likelihood of needing a sewer line replacement.
If you think your sewer pipes are in need of a descaling, don’t put it off any longer. Like with any sewer-related issue, the sooner harmful scale buildup is taken care of, the better. The longer you wait, the more corroded your pipes will become, until they eventually need to be replaced entirely.
