Common Causes of Sewer
and Drain Problems

Although many sewer and drain problems are preventable with proper maintenance, some problems can still happen due to the following causes. 

  • Corroded Pipes – Over time, various culprits can cause the drainage pipes and sewer lines to corrode and break down, potentially leading to leaks and poor drainage. 
  • Aging Pipes – Although most underground drain systems will last for 50 to 100 years, repairs may no longer be an option once they reach their life expectancy. Instead, they may require replacement. Video inspection of the drainage system is the first step to rectifying the issue.
  • Root Intrusion – The roots of trees are naturally drawn to water sources which means they can be drawn to old clay pipes that have begun to leak. This can cause root infiltration that leads to clogs and slow drains. 
  • Improper Pipe Installation – Improperly installed pipes can cause sagging, breakage, and failure within your home’s drainage and sewer system. 
  • City Sewer Line Backup – If the city’s sewer line stops up, it can back up into your home. Call your local government ASAP.
Underground sewer and drain repairs can get expensive. One of the best ways to avoid this is to understand your normal drainage systems and recognize when you may need to call Benditt Mechanical before things get worse. If a problem occurs, we are here to help!

Sewer and Drain Services
We Offer

Benditt Mechanical offers a full range of sewer and drain services in the Metro Philadelphia area. Learn more about our services and how we can help with all your sewer and drain needs.

There are three actions to rectify the problem when a drain blockage arises: drain cabling, water jetting, and video inspection—all services we can provide.

1.

Drain Cabling

Also known as “snaking,” drain cabling is used to clear severely clogged drains caused by solids such as rags, build up and roots. If you’re experiencing a stubborn clog that won’t budge, drain cabling might be the perfect solution. Inside the home, small drain cabling is used to clear clogged toilets, showers, and sinks.

2.

Water Jetting

Not all clogs are the same. In some cases, drain cabling might not be the best solution for your clogged drain. Water jetting is used to scour the drain to remove long-term build-up from grease and other debris that cling to the walls of the pipes, with high-pressure water jets. Hydro-jetting scours the drain and prepares for inspection to help diagnose the issue and prevent future problems. Our drain service experts at Benditt Mechanical will determine whether water jetting is the right solution for your clogged drain.

3.

Sewer and Drain Inspection 

After clearing your sewer or drain, the best way to find the cause of the problem is to have a video inspection with our sewer and drain service. At Benditt Mechanical, we use a high-tech fiber-optic drain inspection camera to identify clogs, leaks, and blockages effectively. After the drain inspection, we will recommend the best drain service to resolve the problem.  Not sure which service is right for you? Contact Benditt Mechanical today at 484-466-3148 to learn more. 

4.

Line Installation 

Sewer line installation is one project you won’t want to do yourself. Whether you need your current sewer line replaced because it’s old or corroded, or you simply need a line installed, Benditt Mechanical can help. Our technicians will handle everything from planning and installation to ensuring everything is up to code.

5.

Pipe Replacement 

On average, pipes can last anywhere from 50 to 100 years, depending on their material. During their lifespan, they will likely require repairs here and there. However, at some point, repairs will no longer suffice and the pipes will need a replacement. At Benditt Mechanical, we can inspect your pipes to help you determine whether pipe replacement is your best solution. If so, we can remove your old pipes and replace them with new ones that will last for years to come.
