Sewer Backup Calgary Main Causes & Solutions

There can be a lot of different reasons that cause a sewer backup and sewage backup problems aren’t isolated to just older Calgary homes, we get calls for sewer backup repairs in newer homes as well.

Sewer Backup Problems in Older Homes

We typically see two causes for sewage backups in the older homes, the first type of sewer line blockage that can lead to water damage common in older residential communities are tree roots pushing or cracking through the main drainage line that runs from the house to the larger city drain.

Another Calgary sewer line popular problem comes from the cast iron pipes that were used for sewer lines drain construction in Calgary, Ab back in the day.

The metal pipes corrode over time and get rusty and rough on the inside which increases the likelihood of flushed debris getting snagged and caught up in the main sewer line leading to a sewage backup.

Causes of Sewer Backup In Newer Homes

In newer homes we often find the sewer line will have a sag causing a belly in the drain line.

This is when the pipe has sagged and holds sewage water for a certain distance. Over time the sewage water will collect grease and build up causing the main sewer pipe to eventually clog and lead to water damage.

Fixing Residential Sewer Backups

In many cases we do a before & after video inspection of the sewer drain line. The before video helps us identify the cause of the clog and the distance within the sewer lines where the sewer backup has occurred, this information is useful in determining which tools to use for the operation.

The tools needed will depend on which blockage we are going to repair. Sewerheroes always arrives on site prepared for every sewage backup eventuality so we can return you and your home to comfort as quickly as possible.

Augering is often done using specialty cutting attachments starting with a smaller size to ensure no damage is done to the sewer line and progressing up to a larger size to match the inside diameter of the sewer lines.

We are also equipped with tools for hydro-jetting, steam cleaning and specialty high speed spinning tools like clog dogs and flex shafts which turn roots into sawdust.

Amazing service. Joey took care of my washer not draining properly in minutes, and was great to talk to. He tested both my sinks as well while waiting for the washer to fill, and cleaned everything properly, even putting a plate beneath my sink to make sure the wood would not get damaged by drips from his work.
