Recent Project: A Dangerous Situation Averted
We received a call from a customer in Flossmoor asking to have his sewer rodded. When our technician arrived and began rodding from the cleanout the line became increasingly rough to rod as he moved through it. When he pulled the cables back, he noticed there was mud on them, usually indicating a break somewhere in the line. At that point, he put the camera in the line to investigate the problem. What he found next was a very dangerous situation – that the gas line had been cross-bored through the sewer line.
A cross bore happens when a second underground utility line is inadvertently run through an existing underground utility line. In this case, the gas line crossed through the sewer pipe. If our technician unknowingly struck the gas line while rodding, natural gas could have entered the sewer system and caused a very dangerous situation.
Our crew immediately called the gas company, who promptly sent a team out to investigate and repair the line. Because of his training and his quick thinking, our technician prevented a potentially very dangerous situation from occurring. Our customer was grateful for a disaster averted.
Recent Project: A Necessary Repair in Flossmoor
A customer called us needing their Flossmoor sewer rodded. Since they did not have an accessible cleanout on their property, our technician rodded from a pulled toilet. While rodding, our technician discovered that the overhead was shifted and that a repair was necessary.
On the day of the repair, our team dug down 2 feet to repair the broken overhead sewer pipe. A 4 feet section of the broken cast iron pipe was replaced with PVC. Once completed, our team rodded the line and discovered very heavy and thick roots at the end of the line.
Our team followed up a few days later and hydro-jetted the front main kitchen line cleanout to the tie in to the main to ensure the line was fully clear of tree roots.
Recent Project: A Flossmoor Drainage Problem Solved
A customer in Flossmoor called us stating that his outside cleanout in his backyard was overflowing. When our technician arrived, he learned that it was actually the catch basin on the back patio that was full to the top and needed repair. Before we could do any work, the catch basin needed to be pumped down so we could get a better look at the pipe and prepare an estimate for the repair.
What we found was a break in the sewer line coming off of the catch basin. When we arrived for the repair the following week, our plan was to eliminate the catch basin altogether and instead, install 6” PVC pipe over the main sewer line and also install a 6” cleanout on the kitchen line. Our team dug down about 4 feet to repair the break in the line and when the repair was completed, the customer was happy to know that his sewer issues were a thing of the past.
