Dayton Sewer & Water Repairs
Excavation Help on Plumbing Jobs Big & Small
Plumbing issues can be caused by a number of issues, and some of the biggest problems include those associated with your sewer and water lines. These lines perform very important functions: your sewer line removes waste water from your home to the city sewer via your drains, and your water line brings clean potable water from the city’s source to your taps and faucets. When there is a major clog, crack, or leak in these lines, it is vital you get an expert on the job as soon as possible.
If you notice water backing up in your shower or tub, cloudy or dirty water flowing from your taps, unexplained puddles in your yard, or other unusual issues, contact our trusted sewer and water line repair professionals in Dayton. We can get to work quickly, using the latest video sewer inspection techniques to get to the heart of the problem.

Common Sewer & Water Line Problems
The most common issues our team generally sees in sewer and water lines include:
- Tree root intrusion: Growing trees, plants, and shrubs will seek out sources of moisture as they expand. This means their roots can burrow into your sewer and water pipes through the smallest cracks or loose joints. Once inside the line, these roots can back up the water flow to and from your property.
- Collapsed or broken lines: Older pipes, especially if they are made out of clay, can erode, break, and collapse. When this occurs, water can back up into your home or puddle in your landscaping.
- Pipe corrosion: Cast iron lines can rust, corrode, and eventually collapse with age. This can cause major leaks through cracks in the lines or water backing up into your home.
- Clogs and blockages: The buildup of debris, dirt, and waste in your sewer line and drains can cause water backup or burst pipes. This is especially true of older pipes that have begun to sag, as the newly minted curve is a prime place for clogs to build up.
- Ground shifts or shifts in your foundation: This can be a big issue after construction on your property or foundation repairs, as an inattentive worker or piece of heavy equipment may have unintentionally damaged your pipes.
- Improper use of your lines: Sewer lines in particular can break because solid items, or items that cannot break down in your pipes, have been flushed or forced down a drain.
Common Signs of a Water or Sewer Line Clog
While water backing up into your home is the most obvious sign of a serious issue in your lines, it is important to keep an eye out for other issues. These include:
- Drains that will not clear, or are clearing very slowly
- Sewage smells coming from your drains
- Standing water in your sewer cleanout
- Backups in your faucets
- Overflowing in any part of your plumbing system while another part is in use (your toilet backing up when you are in the shower, for example)
- Dirty, cloudy, or smelly water coming from your faucets or showerhead
- Unexplained puddles and flooding
When You Should Repair or Replace Your Sewer & Water Line
Repairing and replacing parts of your sewer or water line can be complex, particularly because these lines are located deep underground and are connected to bigger, citywide systems. Our expert plumbers will start with a thorough inspection of your system to find the problem and determine the best course of action. If we determine that excavation is the best path to replace the damaged line, we will do so using the latest technology to minimize the disruption to your home and landscaping. Our excavation team understands the local regulations and will always keep your safety in mind. Never try to dig up your pipes on your own – not only is it a huge job, but a DIY approach can lead to the accidental damage of utility lines or other pipes, leading to a more expensive headache for both you and your neighbors.
