E.D. Hughes Excavating are able to inspect sewers for a sale of a home.  They are familiar and know a lot of real-estate agents in the Willamette Valley. 

In addition to the sewer testing, sewer repair in the Willamette Valley is frequently required because of old busted sewer pipes.  Many homes have their original sewer pipe that has been in the ground for over 50 years in many cases.  A lot of these old sewer lines are made out of clay which makes them brittle.  Overtime tree roots tend to grow into the sewer pipe causing it to break and or back up.  If your sewer line backs up you may need E.D. Hughes Excavating to come and repair it.  A great way to correctly determine the condition of your sewer line is have a video sewer inspection performed.  A video sewer inspection shows the condition of the sewer line on a video screen.   If tree roots are identified as the cause of the sewer problem you may need a  trenchless sewer replacement.


A trenchless sewer replacement is the process of replacing an existing sewer line with a new one without digging up the whole line.  2 access points are made, 1 at each end of the sewer pipe that needs to be replaced.  A cable is used to pull a newer line through the old one bursting it.  Pipe bursting is the most common form of trenchless sewer replacement, but there is another method available called relining.  Relining involves cleaning the sewer line with a hydro-jetter and then placing a sleeve into the sewer line.  The sleeve is then hardened with an epoxy.

 If you suspect any issues with your sewer line call 541-929-3417.
