Waste water backups are one of the messiest plumbing problems to experience. Not only are they unsanitary, but they can also cause internal damage to your home and business. If you are experiencing waste water backups in your toilet, our team at Jim Dandy Sewer and Plumbing is here to help. Knowledgeable plumbers and advanced tools allow us to find the cause of your wastewater backup in Seattle, WA, and repair it quickly so that you and individuals around your property are safe and not exposed to toxic chemicals.

Common Causes of Sewer Backup

The restriction of water flow is the culprit of all backups. When water in your pipelines cannot flow and drain waste properly, waste water backups are often the result. Here are a few of the most common culprits:


If you are experiencing a sewage backup when you flush, it might be due to a clog in your main sewer line. Clogs formed by buildup, waste, and other obstructions will prevent your toilet from draining like it should. Caring for your sewer line by being mindful of what you flush (avoid facial tissues, napkins, etc.) and routine, professional cleanings is a great way to prevent future clogs for homes and businesses in Seattle, WA.

Roots in Pipes

Tree root invasion

Tree roots are one of the most stubborn clogs you can have. These roots grow into your sewer lines through even the smallest crack. These roots are attracted to the moisture from your drain pipes and will cause blockages and even wrap around your line and crush it.

Collapsed sewer lines

Collapsed or broken sewer lines are most common in older constructions. If a section of your system is completely broken, this will prevent flow and cause waste water backups.

Solutions for Sewer Backup

Depending on the cause of your backup, Jim Dandy Sewer and Plumbing will recommend one of our advanced trenchless methods to solve your sewer and drain pipes with speed and precision.

Drain Cleaning

Hydro jetting is our most reliable method of drain cleaning used to treat stubborn clogs in Seattle, WA. This process involves a pressurized water hose that we insert into an existing access point in your sewer line. The multi-directional nozzle sprays in all directions and will wash away any buildup or debris in its path.

Bad Smells

How Pipe Line Repair Can Solve Wastewater Backup

If our inspection finds that your drain pipe is cracked, we may recommend our pipe lining service. This service is most helpful in minor cracks and involves an inflatable tube that is saturated in resin. This tube is inserted into your pipeline and inflated so that the interior walls are coated in resin. This tube is then removed and the resin is cured over a few hours. Once complete, you will be left with a durable drain pipe interior.

Pipe bursting is a technique used for seriously damaged pipes that need replacement. Instead of traditional techniques that require digging on your property, pipe bursting is a trenchless method performed by your professional plumber in Seattle, WA that breaks up the damaged pipe and pulls in a new one all from the interior.
