The most common type of work we perform is electric rodding. If water is backing up in your basement, sinks, tubs, drains, or downspouts we have specialized rods for each clog.
Some sewer lines are clogged with grease, paper, or others types of sludge. If this is the case, we rod out the sewer line with our Hydro Jetter. This is a high-pressured water hose with a special top that is made to remove sludge from the line and eject it to the city sewer. The Hydro-Jetter can also be used to rod open lines for maintenance.
At Madden Sewer, we install new pumps, replace defective pumps, and repair pumps. We work with pumps usually in cases of Flood Controls, over-head sewers, seepage pits, and lift stations. We use Hydromatic pumps, which are top of the line.
We offer a variety of ways to prevent water seepage into your home. The most common and best type of water proofing is seepage tile. We dig a small trench around the perimeter of your house and install seepage pipe. The ground water then seeps into the pipe which goes to a pump pit. The pump then ejects the water into the sewer pipe and it never reaches your basement. We also fix cracks in the foundation and install floor drains.
Catch Basins are used to seperate grease from the sinks in a building from the main sewer line. Due to this, grease can build up in the basin and cause a backup in the sink line. The basin can also fall apart over time and cause major problems in the sewer line. If this is the case, we can do a repair of the basin or install a complete new one. Madden Sewer also can eliminate catch basins and install the sink lines directly into the main sewer line.
No job is too small or too big for us. We can install brand new underground sewer, replace sections of pipes, or patch above ground broken pipes. We also specialize in installing clean outs. A clean out is a pipe that is used as a rod out station and is accessible from above ground.
A lift-station is used when the home owner's sewer line is lower than the city's sewer. In order to fix this, a lift station can be installed. Basically, the sewer line from the house runs off into a pump pit, which ejects the water and waste up above the city sewer so it can flow properly. We also replace the pipe and pumps in current lift stations.
Grease traps are used to contain grease from flowing into the sewer line. They need to be cleaned often and in some cases need to be rebuilt. We offer both services and can eliminate the grease trap if that is the home owners wish.
In order to track a sewer line or find out where a leak is coming from, we offer dye tests.
Madden Sewer can buy and install new toilets, install toilets bought buy the customer, or repair the inside workings of the toilet tank. Wax Rings can also be replaced to prevent leaks from under the toilet.
In the winter time, pipes can freeze and bust. We have equipment to thaw out the pipe and open it for the water to drain and not freeze. We can also lower pipes to insure they will not freeze again.
Madden Sewer works with licensed plumbers when installing new water lines. We can replace old lines, install new lines, or fix broken water lines. Madden Sewer also offers great deals when install a new water line and sewer line at the same time.
