Information, Options and a Job Done Right

If you are experiencing a sewer backup, you have really stepped into something that can only be called a unique and unpleasant form of inconvenience. You want a company that is capable of repairing your sewer line quickly, inexpensively and permanently so another service call is not necessary months later. Unfortunately, in the Seattle area, our industry is flooded with sewer repair contractors who settle for providing quick or cheap service — whatever it takes to get things flowing again and get your check.

At Pipe Guys, we see each call as an opportunity to provide a homeowner with a range of informed options, from the quick fix that most contractors offer to the permanent repair too many homeowners wished they got the first time.

The great thing is, we can provide a diagnosis for your sewer backup or water leak in a stress-free, easy-to-understand manner that will empower you to make the best possible decision. And we can do it with the latest technology and pipe-restoration methods that are faster and cheaper than alternatives — and the least disruptive to your structure and surroundings.

Cameras Are Great — But They Miss Important Facts

Many sewer repair companies use simple camera inspections that only reveal what is visible to the human eye. This often becomes a problem when the video is being viewed by a novice employee who cannot interpret critical information found during a camera inspection of an underground pipe. We have seen these types of misinterpretations for years. As you can imagine, anyone can see roots or broken pipe on a TV screen.

The fact is that underground pipes are susceptible to deterioration and small fractures, which cannot be seen by the naked eye and cause water loss. And if a sewer pipe can't hold water, it can't carry the waste from your home.

Additionally, soil erosion and voids caused by water leaks can cause a sewer pipe to collapse under the weight of soil above the pipe. As cities like Seattle age, this phenomenon is becoming quite common. The Electro Scan technology we use not only detects the overall instability of a leaky pipe that won't survive a quick fix, it has the ability to predict failure before it happens. And that can save you thousands.
