Have you ever had a drain that just wouldn’t drain? What if all of your drains won’t drain? You likely have an issue clogging up your sewer. That’s what happened to this customer, and what ultimately ended up leading to sewer repair in Addison, Illinois.
Sewer Repair In Addison, IL
As Chicago’s #1 plumber, Quality Plumbing was called to clear out the sewer. At first, it seemed like a straightforward job thanks to the outside clean-out installed 5 years prior. After a failed attempt to rod the sewer upstream from the clean-out, it was discovered that the previous repair had failed. Improper couplings had been used, the sewer pipe was not correctly bedded, and the same soil was used to backfill the trench, including the old pipe. This caused the pipe to drop and the coupling stretched below the pipe allowing roots to grow into the sewer.
Prior To Work
First, the yard was marked so Quality Plumbing knew exactly where the issue was. This prevents unnecessary digging and disturbance of your yard.
Failed Sewer Pipe Repair
As you can see from the picture above, the old pipe and cleanout had sunk down into the ground. This caused the improper coupling to stretch, allowing roots to grow into the sewer pipe and ultimately clog it.
New Sewer Pipe
Brand new PVC pipe was put in its place, along with the proper couplers with reinforced clamps. This type of coupling will prevent plants from growing into the sewer pipe and keep its integrity for years to come.
New Sewer Bedding
So that the pipe was supported properly, guaranteeing that it will last for this Addison, IL homeowner, proper bedding of stone was filled in below the pipe. If soil was used again, it may collapse in the future after being exposed to water.
Once the trench had been filled back in, the job was complete. As you can see by the photo above, there was minimal disturbance to this client’s yard.

Sanitation line backed up thru the line in laundry room and couldn't flush toilets or shower so I called a couple of other companies but couldn't get any service until tommorow, so I called quality plumbing and they showed up in an hour. Scott was very professional and knowledgeable I was very pleased with scott & quality plumbing.
Fixed an issue regarding a shower barely having any water flow-this was an easy fix my other plumber (out of town) wasnt able to help with. Got charged 300$ for this something this simple. No call to tell me ahead of time what the issue was and how much the estimate would be. Last time using this company
My in-laws had a bad leak coming from their ceiling, and I needed a plumber to help get it fixed quickly to prevent further water damage--called around and Quality Plumbing was able to get someone out in a timely manner. Diana was very easy to work with to schedule someone, and Kevin who came out did a great job diagnosing the problem (toilet tank with a hairline crack and also loose wax ring from poor installation from previous contractor) and coming up with different solutions which he explained clearly. We ended up replacing both aging toilets with upgraded Gerber toilets that are much more comfortable and better quality backed by a 5 year warranty and Kevin was very careful and professional in making sure everything was installed up to code and correctly. Kevin was extremely professional, hard working, and detail oriented in his work, and I would highly recommend him and Quality Plumbing to anyone!
Outstanding service. Called them up for to service the water heater they installed about ten years ago. The technician Scott did outstanding job and dispatcher Diane was very helpful over the phone. In these times,we are living and working 24/7 now days. We need these types of services
Had a sewer backup on Christmas eve. Quality Plumbing came right away. They put a plan in place and followed through. It was a 3 day job and these guys showed up on time, were extremely courteous, and cleaned up every day. Definitely the best plumbing experience I have had in 30 years of home ownership. Thanks Quality Plumbing!
