Sewer Line Repair in Columbia, MO

Sewer line issues can affect the rest of your plumbing system and may even result in emergencies. Call (573) 777-3660 for immediate sewer line repair services in Columbia, MO.

A leaking, blocked, or damaged sewer line will often lead to drain and toilet problems. These include clogging in several drains, overflowing toilets, and waste backing out of your shower drain.

In-Pipe Sewer Camera Inspections

The most accurate way to diagnose a sewer line problem is with a camera inspection. This allows us a clear look into your pipeline to identify the cause of the problem—whether it’s tree root intrusion, a blockage, a leak, or other damage. Once we’ve uncovered the source of the issue, we can discuss the best approach to solving the problem.

      Common Sewer Line Issues Affecting Columbia Homeowners

      A number of issues can affect your sewer line, including:

      Older residential and commercial properties will often have cast-iron sewer pipes. This material is good for about 30 years, after which it will begin to break down and decay. If your pipes are suffering from severe deterioration, we will help you install new sewer lines made of high-quality plastic (PVC or HDPE).

      This can happen due to hard water, excess sediment in the water, or poor pipe installation. We can often remove corrosion using hydro jetting; however, if the problem has significantly weakened your pipes you may need to consider full sewer line replacement.

      Tree roots in search of a water source can break into your sewer line. This will require professional removal and repair. We will need to cut through the roots, flush them out, and (if necessary) replace the damaged pipe. 

      Customer Reviews

      We would like to commend the folks at MasterTech for their excellent service to our family last week. We had a couple of routine procedures scheduled... and fulfilled during the day. One of them presented a challenge, but Chad saw it through until he was satisfied that it was running well. Later on that night, a major problem suddenly occurred with a different part of the plumbing system: a pipe burst and water flooded the bathroom, sending a stream of water into one of the bedrooms and soaking most of the carpeting. After failing to be able to control the situation ourselves, we made a panicky call to MasterTech, whereupon the woman who answered offered assurance and got help on the way. Nate arrived and immediately went about shutting off the water flow, repairing the problem, keeping us informed, and making sure everything was secure. We are dealing with the aftermath (clean up, new carpeting), but wouldn’t be in as good a position as we are without the as-prompt-as-possible emergency service, professional abilities, and customer care exhibited by the MasterTech people we dealt with that day. Thank you all for your commitment to a job well done and a true concern for your customers! --David and Candy Megahanread more

      What Does Sewer Line Repair Involve?

      Sewer line repair can be completed using traditional or trenchless methods. Traditional sewer repair will involve excavating parts of your property; your driveway or landscaping may be affected. 

      The length of time it takes to repair your sewer line will depend on several factors, including ease of access to the pipe, the extent of damage, and whether you just need to replace a section of piping or your entire sewer line. The process can take a couple of days, or it can take more than a week. We will provide you with an accurate estimate after a careful inspection. 

      We understand that this process can be stressful for you—which is why we are committed to providing our customers with transparent and upfront service from start to finish. Our experts will make sure you receive the right solution based on the specific nature and scale of your sewer problem. We respect your property and will make every effort to limit damage and ensure your peace of mind throughout the project.
