Sewer Line Installation & Repair

Our Specialized Sewer Line Services

We provide a range of essential maintenance services to keep your septic system running smoothly:

  • Blockage clearing & camera inspections: From your house to the inlet side of the tank.
  • Outlet inspections: Clearing blockages and camera inspections from the outlet side of the tank to the distribution box or leach field.
  • Leach field location: We help you locate your leach field for peace of mind.
  • Pipe replacement (excavation):
    • From the house to the inlet side of the tank (existing pipe only).
    • From the outlet side of the tank to the distribution box (existing pipe only).
  • Septic tank locating: Expose existing covers and install new risers for easier access if needed.

Important note: While we excel in these specialized tasks, please be advised that we do not design, install, replace, repair, or alter septic systems. For pumping services, we collaborate with a trusted sub-contractor ONLY if necessary for the above tasks.

Homeowners can also count on GEM for all their backflow protection services. We install sewer backwater valves and perform inspections every six months, or as required by code. 

If you think you may have a broken pipe or an unhealthy sewage leak under your property, don’t wait to call the plumbing team at GEM. We fix cracked, deformed, and collapsed pipes quickly and efficiently.

Some Common Signs of a Broken Sewer Pipe

  • Lack of water in your toilet

Sewer Pipes May Crack & Burst Due To:

  • Wear and tear from aging

Expert Water Line Repair

It’s easy to take clean, running water for granted. For most homes, water is delivered through a single water line. Have you noticed discoloration of your water, a drop in water pressure, or a constantly wet spot in your yard? Your water line may be damaged. If you notice any of these problems, call GEM. 

As water lines age, they can become more vulnerable to the effects of freezing and thawing, ground movement, water pressure, mineral buildup, and even tree root intrusion. If a water line is damaged, it could quickly lead to the need for emergency replacement. 

If there’s a problem with your water line, we’ll start by using our HD televised plumbing camera system to pinpoint the source of the problem. This allows us to conduct repairs as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

We also recommend performing regular maintenance on all pipes to identify minor problems before they get worse.
