Why do I need an outside access for my sewer?

Most main lines going from your home or business to the city sewer or septic tank are 6 inches in diameter. Most cleanouts, or access points, within the home are 3-4″. In addition to being smaller, most cleanouts within the home possess many turns that limits the effectiveness of the rodding machine.

Installing an outside cleanout is the best option, because it provides a full diameter access to the pipe. This way, the blades on the rodding machine have the ability to clean out the entire pipe of roots and other materials. In most cases, rodding from a smaller access will open the line, but will back up sooner than later due to the fact that only part of the pipe was cleaned. Axberg can not only rod out your sewer, but also has the equipment to camera the line to see the condition of the pipe. If there is an issue, the device can also pinpoint its location.

Axberg Reviews
Daughter bought an older house and needed some plumbing work in bathroom, Kevin did a great job. This is the second time we have used Black Diamond. A few months ago my wife blew a circuit breaker and ended up shutting off one side of the box trying to reset it. She did not realize her mistake and called BD for help. The young man checked the box and noticed her error right away. Rather than standing in my basement for an hour and charging me hundreds of dollars for nothing, he explained the problem to her and charged us the least amount for the service call that he could. This honesty is why we used them today and they proved themselves to be fair and knowledgeable with plumbing as well. When I need any kind of service they provide, I will be call without hesitation.
