Clog Locating and Scoping
If your sewer line connection to the city’s main sewer line breaks or becomes clogged, rectifying the problem may require digging up the pipes.
To prevent having to dig up the entire pipework, we have specialized clog locating equipment that lets us look into the pipe to find the problem. Using this method to find faults in a sewage line is effective, quick, and uses less manpower, making a sewer main repair project less costly.

Main Sewer Line Backup Services
Main sewer line backups are a pain, but you can stress less knowing Henco Plumbing Services can help. No matter the problem with your pipes, we’ll solve it! Our professionals are highly skilled and fully licensed to handle any issues your sewer lines may present. The most common cause of sewer line backups are blockages, whether it be from food particles, hair, grease or soap scum buildup, dirt, or all of the above. When the flow of wastewater is obstructed, the only way out is by backing up in your toilet, bathtub, shower, or sinks. Removal of the blockage should only be attempted by a professional plumber, as the task could be hazardous to your health, and attempting a DIY fix without proper knowledge and experience could make the problem worse, or create a new one.
Underground pipes are filled with water and nutrients, attracting tree roots that grow towards the pipes and can penetrate them. Roots can collapse and damage your sewer lines, even those of trees that are not on your property, as tree roots can grow more than 20 feet long. Additionally, storm drains can only handle so much rain water. In the event they’ve reached their maximum capacity, excess water could end up in residential sewer lines. If you’re noticing backups only during a heavy storm, your problem is likely due to large amounts of rain.
