If We Are Unable to Clear Your Blockage, You Won’t Pay a Dime
Sewer Line Cleaning with Sewer Lines Only
Roots, debris and build-up can wreak havoc on your sewer line causing back-up and flooding. When your home’s sewer line becomes blocked, it can cause a lot of problems. From sewage backing up into your drains to a soggy, smelly yard, a clogged sewer line needs to be cleared—fast.
Sometimes, the issue is a small blockage somewhere in the line; other times, however, it may be a much bigger problem. When you’re looking for a sewer line cleaning service in Denver, make Sewer Lines Only your first call.
We use a chain knocker system that offers impressive results!
Sewer Line Only’s Chain Knocking System
At Sewer Lines Only, our first step is a visual inspection of your sewer line. We’ll send a camera into your pipes to get a better sense of any blockage, scaling, or other debris that may be slowing your sewer line and causing backups. This footage gives us the ability to choose the best course of action to directly attack the build-up in your sewer line and restore it to working order.
Once we complete our visual assessment, we’ll insert a cleaning cable into your sewer line. This cable has four chains attached to it, and each chain is equipped with four root-cutting blades. This gives our cleaning cable sixteen points of contact with the sides of your pipe, which allows us to aggressively clean the scale, tree roots, debris, and other blockage from the inside of the tube.
We can run a camera alongside to verify in “real time” that the roots or blockage are removed. With a traditional cable system, the machine is operated “blind.”
The flex shaft can fit through openings as small as 1.5 inches to clear drains as wide as 6″ in diameter.
Our machine runs at 3000 RPMs versus the 500 RPMs of a traditional cable system.
Four chains with four root cutting blades on each offer sixteen points of contact to aggressively attack the blockage. A traditional cable offers two points of contact.
A post-cleaning scope video is included.
The system is cleaner for the home- no splatter!
Why Your Sewer Line Becomes Blocked
There are a number of reasons why your sewer pipe may become blocked and send you looking for a sewer line cleaning service, including:
Roots- The leading cause of sewer back-ups are tree roots, which can penetrate your pipes and continue to grow. With enough time, these roots can grow thick enough to completely block your pipes.
Bellied Piping- A bellied pipe is simply an area in your sewer line in which the pipe has begun to sag, creating a “belly” effect. This typically happens when the soil around your pipe becomes loose and breaks apart. This instability allows a portion of the piping to drop down, making a slight dip. Over time, a bellied pipe will accumulate waste at the bottom of the sag, which eventually causes your sewer line to slow and to clog completely.
Grease – When it comes to your pipes, grease is your worst enemy. Many homeowners will casually pour used cooking grease down the drain because once it’s out of sight, it’s out of mind. However, this is the worst possible way to dispose of your grease. As it cools, grease resolidifies, and because it repels water, it’s incredibly difficult to rinse away, especially as it gets further from the drain. This will almost always result in your pipes becoming blocked.
Broken Pipes- The biggest problem happens if your pipes simply break. At times, the soil can shift enough that the resulting stress will push your pipes beyond bending, instead causing them to crack—or even break completely.
It’s important to have your sewer lines regularly cleaned by a professional. In general, it is recommended that homeowners should schedule a sewer line cleaning for routine maintenance every 1-3 years. This helps prevent a number of issues from occurring.
For example, tree roots can not only penetrate and eventually block your pipes, but they can break your pipes, as well, which leads to extensive—and expensive—repairs. Scale can also build up on your pipes, leading to increasing backups in your sewer line.
Anytime your sewer line experiences a crack, break, or even a back-up, you may find that your pipe has leaked onto your lawn, leaving you with a smelly mess.
If you’re experiencing frequent problems, it’s worth taking the time to schedule a video inspection with a technician from Sewer Lines Only. They’ll insert a video camera into your sewer line to visually determine what issues are causing your sewer backup. This evidence will help your technician to choose the right course of action to most effectively fix your blockage.

Ian was the go to person on our sewer line replacement. From the onset Ian was spot on to include the scope the bid & the work. His crew worked neatly, diligently & always kept me in the loop. They also repaired sprinkler lines, & returned landscaping to acceptable standards. Ian also provided a video scope link of the completed work. Several neighbors also commented on how neat the overall process was also. Thanks Ian !
Sewer lines only was a positive experience. They were much nicer and better priced than their competitors. They ran into difficulties on the job and handled it very well. I would recommend their services again.
I want to thank Ian and his whole crew at Sewer Lines Only for replacing my water and sewer lines. They are an honest and dependable company. I’m very satisfied with all the work done. I highly recommend them.
Selling house and inspection found a sag/belly in our sewer line that needed fixing. Needed the work performed quickly and received several quotes. Greg arrived at the house and gave us the most reasonable quote and said his crew could perform and complete the work in a day that same week. After a delay due to torrential rain, the crew started the work but found the pipeline was buried much deeper than normal (11-12 feet down). This added another day before the work was complete. The crew did an amazing job considering where the pipe ran (underneath a tree and flower beds). The project leader, Wyatt, kept us informed of the progress and was in constant touch throughout. On completion he then performed and recorded a camera video of the sewer line for us. Considering the conditions and problems that arose, Sewer Line Only performed a great job and kept to the quoted price. All involved were amazing, from Greg – who I can only describe as a “real gentleman” (such a nice man), Wyatt, and all the crew – thank you.
This company is very helpful and professional. Greg and Ian were able to help with a very complicated situation. They knew exactly what needed to be done to get it fixed and they quoted me a great price. They responded to my phone calls and emails immediately and they were able to answer all of my questions. If you are looking for a reliable, professional, and honest solution to any of your sewer problems, this is the company to use!
Greg and Ian devised a solution to meet our buyers’ concerns and were able to perform the work within a short turn-around time frame and at a fair cost. Very pleased. I have urged our realtor to recommend them whenever a sewer issue arises.
I had a great experience with Ian and his team. Professional, honest, and willing to work with you to give you the best experience. Strongly recommend.
My mother in-law was told by another plumber that her sewer line needed to be replaced and get a very high estimate. Called Sewer Lines Only for a review and quote. Greg recommended that we have the sewer line inspected with a camera and gave me a company to call. The inspection showed the sewer line was in good shape. Greg’s recommendation to inspect the sewer line saved us thousands of dollars.
One of the best companies I have ever worked with! They genuinely care about their service and want to do what is best for you! They went above and beyond multiple times during the stress that were previous plumbers’ mistakes! Their prices are even reasonable and fair. If you need sewer work, this is the one company I would go out of my way to recommend!
I am very pleased with the work Sewer Lines Only did on my house. Ian’s professionalism, honesty, and leadership is top-notch, and the work was done well. I wholeheartedly endorse them.
Knowledgeable & friendly…Ian and his crew did an excellent job! I can’t say enough about them. They got to work right away and completed the job swiftly. I especially appreciate the educational angle. Ian made sure I understood the issues and proposed solutions. We had serious problems, and he not only fixed them, but he explained the approach and kept me abreast of progress. Very professional, great communication! I highly recommend Sewer Lines Only.
