sewer line repair in bergen county

If you’re facing a sewer problem, you’ve probably heard or read about trenchless sewer services. Many people spend a lot of time wondering which type of repair would be better for them or wondering how to make the most out of every dollar they spend on their sewer.

Here are some of the benefits of trenchless sewer services that you need to know to make a final decision on the type of sewer repairs you need in Bergen County.

No Trenches Need to Be Dug

Our trenchless sewer services allow us to tackle your sewer line repair in Bergen County without having to dig up your yard, or by only digging a few, small holes, instead of a trench along the entire length of your sewer line. We’ll work through the sewer access hatch in or near your home. Sewer inspections in New Jersey allow us to view and clean sewer pipes or replace sections of pipe without digging up your yard.

Pipe Relining is Durable

Pipe relining is one of the most common methods of trenchless sewer line repair in Bergen County that we do on a regular base. We can place a liner over a small hole or crack in your pipe so that your sewer line stops leaking. These pipe liners can last up to 50 years! This can be much longer than the life of many types of sewer lines. Since the liners aren’t made of metal, they won’t rust or corrode. Most people find that they have many other sewer issues before their liner gives them trouble!

A sewer in New Jersey

No one likes it when their sewer backs up! After all, a sewer backup can cause major problems at home. At the very least, it disrupts your schedule and takes away from your peace of mind.

You can help avoid a sewer line backup if you know what causes these issues. This information can also help you understand what is going on if your main sewer line is already having a problem. 


Your sewer line can get clogged just like your pipes can, though it usually requires more waste or debris to clog a sewer line than it does a pipe, simply because sewer lines usually have a larger diameter than your other pipes. 

You’ll know it’s a sewer backup when more than one drain is clogged in your house or when you have odd draining problems (like your bathtub fills with water every time your washer drains!).

Avoid these clogs by:

  • Limiting what you put down the toilet.
  • Using common sense when it comes to putting things down the garbage disposal.
  • Not putting grease or oil down the drain. 
  • Regularly scheduling drain cleaning in Teaneck!

Broken or Collapsed Sewer Lines

If you have an older home with a clay or cast iron main sewer line, then your backup could be caused by a broken or collapsed sewer line. Age causes these materials to deteriorate and, eventually, they will break.

It is much less common to have a broken or collapsed line with the new plastic or PVC pipes. They do not deteriorate nearly as quickly and so homes that have them installed have fewer sewer problems overall. If you’re having structural issues with your sewer, BZ Dependable can provide reliable sewer repair, video camera sewer inspection, and more.

Tree Roots

Tree roots can cause a couple of problems with your sewer line, both of which can end up with sewer backups in your home. Tree roots can grow into your sewer line, causing a major clog. They can also grow around the line and, eventually, crush a section of it.

The tree doesn’t have to be right over the line. In fact, it may not even be in your yard. Most trees have root systems just as extensive as their branch systems. Just because you don’t have a tree doesn’t eliminate this from the list of culprits for your sewer problem.

If you’re experiencing a sewer line backup, call us at BZ Dependable ASAP. Don’t let these problems wait because they only get worse. Call for help with your sewer backup today!

The first thing that many homeowners do when a drain develops a clog is reach other the sink for a bottle of liquid drain cleaner they bought at the hardware store. If you’re one of these homeowners, we urge you to stop this. In fact, we urge you to avoid using store-bought solutions all together if you have any hopes of keeping your drain pipes in good shape.

Unsure of how to relieve clogs drains if you can’t use these solutions? Read on for 4 things you should know about professional Bergen County drain cleaning.


Clogged drains can be relieved with professional drain cleaning services. What’s more, is they should be relieved by a professional, not with damaging store-bought liquid drain cleaners. Do you know how those store bought solutions work? The ingredients in them do eat through what’s clogging your drain, but they do so by using caustic chemicals which are toxic to you and bad for your drain pipes.

Years of using these solutions will eventually eat away at your drain pipes, causing leaks and eventually requiring pipe replacement. In order to get your drains more thoroughly cleaned without worrying about damaging them, be sure to call our pros.


We offer BioSmart drain treatment. It is a liquid drain cleaner, essentially. However, it clears your drain pipes without toxic chemicals that can harm your pipes and pollute the environment. It contains special enzymes and bacteria, which break down and digest clots of grease and organic waste that can cling to the inside of your plumbing system. Any residue that’s left behind will be flushed away and safely managed by the septic system.


We urge you to consider the use of BioSmart drain treatment over the solution you may have purchased from the hardware store. But sometimes a stubborn clog needs more than that. This is where drain snaking or hydro-jetting comes in. Drain snaking involved the use of an auger on a long cord to drill through whatever is clogging the drain, allowing water to flow freely through the pipe again.

Hydro-jetting scours waste and other items that can be clogging up your drains, leaving your plumbing in the condition it was in before it developed clogs.


Some are not always within your control. For instance, you might have a tree root in the backyard infiltrate your sewer system through a tiny leak. Not only is this a huge inconvenience to your landscaping and your home, but it almost always requires a sewer line replacement.

Other drain clogs though, are pretty preventable. For instance, your kitchen sink is prone to clogging issues from the wrong items being put down the garbage disposal. This includes FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) and fibrous food products such as celery stalks and corn husks.

Winter means holiday guests, which makes it a busy time of year for plumbers. All those people using the various appliances and fixtures in your home adds a lot of strain. A larger reason for those clogs, though, is all that extra cooking you may be doing, and all of the plates scraped into the garbage disposal.

There are steps you should take to prevent the hassle and cost of drain clogs, such as limiting the fats, oils, and grease that go down the kitchen drains and keeping hair traps in the bathroom drains. Thankfully, when trouble does arise from the drains, professional plumbers have the tools and know-how to unclog the drains quickly.


First, we have video pipe inspection equipment to help us narrow in on the source and location of a clog. This equipment may not be necessary in every situation, like for clogs near the opening of the drain, but it’s useful when trying to determine whether a sewer clog has to do with grease buildup or tree roots, for example.

The video camera is as small as the one on your smartphone. The cable is fed through the pipe so we can see every angle, determining the source of a clog and helping us to decide which equipment will work most efficiently and effectively for removal.

Some amateur plumbers or self-professed “handymen” will go in blind, using augers that may actually do more harm than good because they didn’t have the right equipment to start with. Just another reason to call professional plumbers!


The drain snakes they sell in hardware stores may be good for small clogs near the drain opening. However, they rarely do an effective job of getting your toughest blockages, formed by the most common sources.

Expert drain snakes and augers have a longer range than those you’re likely to get at any hardware store. They can be motorized to work through the blockages that are tough to push through with strength alone. Finally, experts have the know-how to ensure the job is done right.


We’d like to remind all homeowners that those chemical drain cleaners you can buy at any home goods store or grocery are not safe for your pipes. Not only are they toxic to humans, but they can destroy the lining of pipes, meaning they may need replacement sooner than you’d think. First, you might try using a plunger, or even a safe mixture of baking soda and vinegar if a clog is confined to one area. But then, call a plumber who uses BioSmart.

BioSmart drain cleaning solutions do not use chemicals! This is often the choice supplement for drains by professional plumbers, as it uses bacteria to break down the grease in the drains biologically. In this way, grease, food particles, and other organic blockages are slowly eaten away at until the drains are cleared.

Treat your clogged drain in Dumont, NJ safely with the professional equipment and plumbers at BZ Dependable Plumbing & Heating Inc.

Drain cleaning ranks among the most common problems that homeowners in Bogota, NJ face. Clogs can form remarkable easy from foodstuffs placed down the drain, toothpaste and hygiene products in the bathroom, and even child’s toys flushed down the toilet in a moment of mischief. People tend to look for the fast solutions in such cases: a cleanser brought at the grocery store, or perhaps a plumbing snake bought at a home improvement center. The fast solution is rarely the best one, however, and in all but the most benign cases, we recommend contacting a professional plumber to deal with your clogged drains. You should always go to a plumbing service first instead of trying to handle it one your own. Here’s why.


Cleansers and other store-bought solutions tend to adopt a one-size-fits-all approach, which means it “kind of” resolves the clog, but often leaves residue behind. That means the clog will build back up very quickly, forcing you to apply the same solution over and over again. A professional plumber uses mechanical snakes, industrial cleansers and other tools to clear up the clog properly: addressing its actual nature instead of just hoping for the best.


Professional plumbers are licensed and bonded, which provides certain guarantees that the job will be done the right way. That means you don’t need to worry about the clog being beyond any ability to fix, or that you’re going to continue to grapple with it weeks after the call is made. It also means that any growing clogs in the same length of pipe can be taken care of, providing a more comprehensive solution to the problem instead of dealing with each one one its own.

If you have a stubborn clog in your drain, call BZ Dependable today to get it solved the right way!

Here in Hillsdale, NJ, problems with your sewer line used to mean big trouble. The damage itself – whether a clog, a leak or general corrosion – wasn’t all that difficult to repair, but getting to the problem area could be a major hassle. You needed to dig down to it, which meant expensive construction equipment and longer man hours, then cover it up again when the repairs or replacement had been made. That became doubly problematic in the winter, when the ground was frozen, and even when it all went according to plan, you were left with a devastated yard that needed major work to look presentable again.

But that was in the past. Today, we use trenchless technology to repair sewer lines in a fraction of the time and with much less cost to you. Here’s a quick breakdown of how the process works so you understand what all is entailed.

  • The technician gets a look at the problem with a video camera run down the pipe, a seismic detector or similar piece of equipment.
  • The technician digs two small holes running down to the pipe on either side of the problem area. This is done in lieu of excavating the remainder of the pipe.
  • Repairs are done by running the pertinent equipment down one hole and up the other, using video cameras to ensure that it is secured in place. For example, an inflatable balloon can be slid into the pipe, blown up, and sealed against the sides to repair a leak in the pipe.
  • The repairs are tested to make sure they stick and the holes are covered again, leaving you with a fully functional pipe and only two small dirt patches in your yard. The remainder of the yard is left intact.
