Sewer Video Inspections
Problems with your home’s sewer line can show up in unexpected ways throughout your home and yard:
- Recurring drain clogs or slow drains
- Unpleasant smells coming from your bathrooms, kitchen, or drains
- Wet spots on your lawn or landscaping
- Unusually lush spots in your lawn or landscaping
- Sinkholes in your landscaping
If you experience any of these issues, a sewer inspection is a great place to start. Our sewer video camera can access the entire run of your main line to find any cracks, clogs, or root invasions. This fast and inexpensive service lets us pinpoint any signs of damage to provide more accurate and helpful options to fully restore your drain line.
Most sewer issues in Lathrop are caused by older sewer lateral lines. Many homes still have older Orangeburg pipes, which are made from wood pulp and tar pitch. While formerly popular, new Orangeburg sewers are no longer installed because even simple maintenance, like sewer jetting, can crack and damage them.
Lathrop is also a very flat area, which means that any unproperly graded sanitary sewers will also be prone to blockages, even if they’re made from higher quality ABS or PVC pipe.

Sewer Repair Services
In the event of sewer damage, our team offers a variety of repair options.
In many cases, the best option is a full trenchless sewer repair. This option works a lot like minimally-invasive surgery: instead of digging up your whole lawn, we dig a significantly smaller access at one end of your sewer line, feed the equipment inside the line, and actually repair it from the inside. This method is often the fastest option, completely restores the sewer line, and disturbs your property the least.
In other cases, a spot repair to a specific section of your sewer lateral may be a better option. We can also provide full trenched sewer repair, which is usually best for shorter lines that can be difficult to repair using trenchless technology.
In some cases, if your sewer is merely blocked but otherwise in good condition, we can also offer sewer jetting to remove any built up debris. While this won’t help with a cracked or collapsed sewer line, it’s a great way to add years of life to your current sewer lateral.
No matter what sewer repair method works best for your situation, our team will sit down with you to fully explain your options and help you make an informed decision. We work hard to make your sewer repair in Lathrop as easy, seamless, and affordable as possible.
