Signs You Need to Call a Sewer Repair Service

Stinky sewer smells and tediously slow drains are not just unpleasant. They are also early signs alerting you that your Cincinnati home may need sewer pipe repair. Often, annoying problems like these are indicators that something much worse needs attention as soon as possible, before irreversible, expensive damage is done. Below are just a few signs it’s time to call a sewer repair company:

  • Slow-draining or standing water in sinks or bathtubs
  • Unpleasant sewer odors
  • Gurgling sounds from your drain, indicating difficulty with water flow
  • Sewer backups
  • Sunken spots or sinkholes in your yard
  • More bugs or rodents visiting your property (a broken sewer line can be a beacon for these pests)
  • Unexplained increase in water bill expenses

If you are experiencing any of these sewer plumbing issues, CME is the experienced sewer repair company you can count on in Cincinnati, Columbus and beyond. Call 513-672-8302 for your free sewer camera inspection and urgent sewer pipe repair needs.

Our Sewer Pipe Repair Services for Cincinnati Homeowners

Home sewers are typically connected to the municipal sewer main through what’s known as a sewer lateral. When a sewer lateral fails, homeowners are responsible for sewer line repair. This is problematic because most sewer laterals travel from your home to the street, usually beneath your lawn: what homeowner wants a torn up lawn with no guarantee of a lasting sewer solution? Thankfully, CME’s innovative sewer pipe repair services can be implemented without tearing up your turf.

Trenchless Pipe Lining

When it comes to plumbing sewer repair services, you can trust CME to help you save time and money without overcomplicating the process with costly digging. We rely on long-lasting trenchless sewer repair methods to quickly solve Cincinnati homeowners’ plumbing problems without tearing up the yard or leaving a big mess behind.

Our sewer pipe lining process typically takes less than 24 hours and lasts for 50+ years, equivalent to a full replacement. Our sewer lateral repair technique mimics a full replacement, too, by coating the original pipe from the inside to restore any cracks or damage with no digging required and minimal downtime to your utilities.

Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting is another trenchless sewer repair method to essentially have a brand new pipe without the typical excavation required to remove the damaged pipe. Our team will create two small, minimally invasive access points in your yard, allowing us to expertly push—or “burst”—the old pipe from its position in the ground, sliding a new pipe in to take its place.

Compared to pipe lining, pipe bursting is better suited for pipes that are broken or crushed, as opposed to pipes that are leaking or cracked. Both pipe lining and pipe bursting are relatively quick, cost-effective sewer pipe repair solutions that do little damage to your yard. Our technicians will talk through options with you to decide which makes the most sense for your home, but you can rest assured we’ll take the right approach to fully restore your home plumbing.

Other Sewer Pipe Repair Options

Sewer Cleaning

Of course, sometimes a free sewer camera inspection with CME will find it’s nothing more than stuck debris causing frustration with your pipes. In these cases, we’re readily equipped to perform hydro jetting to clean out pipes and blast blockages to return your pipes to premium condition. Taking the time to inspect the pipes upfront allows us to make a well-informed decision about which solution will work best to restore pipes.

Emergency Sewer Services

CME also has emergency services in the Cincinnati area, available after hours to connect you with a live contact when there’s no time to waste. Simply call 513-672-8302 to speak with a CME representative.

Common Types of Sewer Pipes in Cincinnati

Homeowners sign up for a lot when they purchase a home, including sewer pipes that have likely been in place for decades, making them a potential liability down the line. As a reputable, responsive sewer repair company in Cincinnati, our experts are well-versed in sewer repair services for a wide variety of sewer pipes. The most common sewer pipes in the Cincinnati area include:

  • Cast iron
  • Clay
  • Concrete
  • Orangeburg

Designed for durability, these sewer pipes have stood the test of time and are still present in many homes today. Even so, years of exposure have likely led to cracks, leaks or intrusion from tangled tree roots, all of which can become a disaster if left untreated. Because we start with a free sewer camera inspection, we can immediately diagnose existing issues and move forward with a clear, cost-effective course of action to restore the pipes or remove the problem.

The sewer line repair process we rely on for trenchless sewer repair in Cincinnati homes is compatible with these existing sewer pipes to successfully smooth over cracks and strengthen the pipes from within.
