Sewer Repair

All Shark Sewer services use cutting-edge “trenchless” technology. This is to distinguish them from traditional methods of sewer repair, which needed to dig a long, deep trench in your backyard, into your concrete foundation, or into the parking area of your business.

Not surprisingly, breaking up concrete or having to perform a lot of digging added much time to each job, created a huge mess, and extra costs for post-job landscaping or freshly poured concrete.

Trenchless services, on the other hand, require only a small access point to reach and repair or replace your pipes.

The vast majority of our procedures take less than a day, and all work takes place under the ground – meaning no messy digging or expensive cleanup! As an added benefit, trenchless services are better for the environment.

Since your original pipes stay in the ground, less waste is produced and sent to a landfill. Your new trenchless liner is also equipped with a fifty-year lifespan, meaning that it will need replacement less frequently than other pipe materials. This hugely reduces water and waste usage over time.

At Shark Sewer, we strive to provide the best service possible for your plumbing needs. Regardless of whether you’re ordering a service for your home, business, or industrial property, we have the tools and training to complete your job in a fast and efficient way.

Read below to find out which treatment might be right for you:

Sewer camera inspection

A powerful diagnostic tool, used by our technicians to assess the health of your pipes, locate damage, and accurately recommends the best service for your needs. A small, high-definition camera is sent directly into your pipes, relaying a clear picture of the state of your plumbing system.

Hydro Jetting

This service is used either on its own, or prior to the installation of a sewer pipe lining service. In the latter case, hydro jetting must be utilized to prepare the pipe to receive the liner, in order for it to adhere cleanly. It uses a jet of hot, high-pressured water inside your pipe to strip away layers of caked-on kitchen grease, irregularities from rust or mineralization, remove serious clogs, and dislodge other objects to bring your sewer line back to its original functionality.

Water Pipe Inspection & Repair

Here at Shark Sewer, we can line and repair just about any size water pipe all the way down to a 2-inch line.

Repairing water pipes and finding leaks can be a challenging task without the right tools and equipment, especially if the leaks are inside the walls of the home or building.

Leaking pipes inside walls pose a significant health risk if left undetected, as mold growths and spores can infiltrate and build inside the walls.

If this happens, homeowners can have a major problem on their hands, and these health hazards are particularly significant for children, the elderly, and pets.

Shark Sewer offers the latest in pipe inspection and rehabilitation services. We take the time to carefully inspect your pipes with our advanced camera equipment and leak detection tools. With these components in place, we ensure that we will pinpoint the exact problems in your pipes. After we have diagnosed the problem, we can move forward with the ideal repair solution.

Our in-place pipe restoration system works in just about all pipe materials including copper, galvanized steel, iron, and PVC. If you are experiencing a complication with the water lines in your home, be it pinhole leak or large burst in the pipe, call Shark Sewer today and let us help rehabilitate your water pipe system.

Drain Cleaning

At Shark Sewer, we are leaders in drain-based services. From inspections to lining services, we have the solutions needed to rehabilitate drains and keep them functioning smoothly for residents in Colorado.

Drain Cleaning with Shark Sewer

At Shark Sewer, we offer eco-friendly drain cleaning methods for our customers. With an emphasis on trenchless solutions, we encourage cleaning processes that are fast and effective. We offer both hydro jetting and chain cutting cleaning services, and both of these drain cleaning tools are specialized to remove different types of waste and scale.

Our drain cleaning services are prefaced with a camera inspection. The small, waterproof cameras that we navigate through the pipes include high-quality lenses that capture clear footage of the interior of the pipes. This look into the inside of the pipes allows us to accurately diagnose the problem, be it a clog or clump of tree roots, and remove it without excavation or unsafe cleaning methods.

With this in mind, we offer the best, most contemporary solutions available in the industry with our advanced, eco-friendly equipment.

Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is a popular drain cleaning process that is effective at pulverizing tree root clumps and washing away debris and waste.

With a hose, water tank, and multidirectional nozzle attached to the spout, our experts eject high-pressure blasts of water directly into the pipe and forcibly remove the accumulation of organic materials inside of the pipe.

The water pressure is powerful, and while it guarantees a complete cleaning of the inside of the pipe, we manage the pressure directly and prevent it from negatively affecting the pipe itself as well.

The water is notably clean and filtered, ensuring that there are no toxic chemicals that could lead to an increased rate of corrosion inside of the pipeline, resulting in a drain cleaning tool that is reliable and effective.

Chain Cutting

The chain cutters we employ are the culmination of new, innovative technology. In this cleaning process, a chain is inserted into the pipeline.

Chain cutting doesn’t require water to be employed and is vibrated at incredibly fast speeds, the vibrations are able to easily remove scale and hardened mineral deposits.

This solution is recommended in situations where hydro jetting wouldn’t be as effective, and at Shark Sewer, we are proud to offer a drain cleaning method unlike any other in the current industry.

Preventative Drain Cleaning

Because our work is eco-friendly and fast, we are proud to offer our drain cleaning services for our customers on annual basis.

When you schedule a drain cleaning session with our team yearly, we can help prevent the formation of clogs by cleaning out the waste frequently before it becomes a larger, more expensive problem.

At Shark Sewer, we are always happy to lend our customers assistance for emergency situations as well as regular cleaning sessions. Call us today at (720) 550 8825 to schedule an appointment and learn more about our drain cleaning options.

Drain Inspection

Your home or business’ sanitary and storm sewers function in different ways, and require alternative methods of care. Not all storm drains are located outside the home, and knowing how to treat each drain type can result in saving yourself a lot of hassle (not to mention a flattened wallet).

If you’re located in Colorado and are experiencing trouble with your drain or sewer system, don’t hesitate – call Shark Sewer today! Our teams of highly trained professionals are ready to tackle your next project, and will have your drains as good as new in no time!

Being proactive with your storm drains: at-home care

A big part of keeping your drains flowing involves actions taken at home, well before your Shark Sewer engineer is called. Below are several things you can do to keep your sewer systems clean and your home and environment healthy:

• Never pour paints, solvents, cleaners, or other harsh chemical products into your drains. These can be disposed of at your local county household hazardous waste collection site.
• Collect and recycle motor oil properly.
• Minimize the use of pest- and herbicides. Even if not poured directly into drains, chemical runoff occurs when rain-washes the poison from your yard into a storm drain.
• Repair any leaks or drips from your vehicle in a timely fashion.
• Keep storm sewer drains free of debris such as grass clippings, twigs, garden trimmings, or other yard waste.
• Never use the drain as a disposal site.
• Most experts suggest ordering a drain inspection and cleaning on an annual basis as another great way to forestall serious, expensive repairs.

What does a drain inspection do, anyway?

An inspection of your drains – whether sanitary or storm sewers – sounds deceptively simple. In fact, the process is straightforward: a small, high-definition camera is threaded into your pipe at an access point, during which time it delivers a clear picture of the state of your pipes, the nature of your damage, and its location.

This procedure is a vast improvement over the traditional method of using an educated guess to deduce where and what the problem was – and digging up long lengths of pipe at a time! A drain inspection drastically cuts the amount of time needed for your job, reduces mess, and slashes costs.

Our drain inspections are “trenchless” – meaning they don’t need to have a long trench created in your basement, backyard, or parking lot to reach pipes. All of our procedures ensure that your existing pipe stays in the ground while being repaired or replaced, cutting down on post-job cleanup, hidden job costs (such as new landscaping or freshly poured concrete), and making our procedures more environmentally friendly.

Regardless of your challenge, our team at Shark Sewer will rise to meet it. If you have questions about drain inspections, or would like to know more about our services, contact our office today. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Trenchless Pipe Repair

If you’ve encountered problems with your plumbing in your home, business, or industrial property, Shark Sewer has the tool available to solve your issue in a fast, efficient way. Trenchless pipe repair can be completed in less than a day, is highly durable, and is minimally invasive, making it the right choice for your sewer repair needs.

Trenchless pipe repair: how does it work?

At Shark Sewer, our highly trained engineers use cured-in-place pipe lining (CIPP) for our trenchless pipe repair service. This is suitable for cracked or corroded pipes, pipes with leaky fittings, pipes susceptible to chronic tree root invasion, and other issues.

To ascertain whether or not a sewer lining is right for you, a sewer camera inspection is performed. This is a huge improvement over traditional methods, which relied on educated guesswork to name your problem and find its location. A camera inspection will accurately assess the degree of damage in your pipes and pinpoint its location. A small, high-definition camera is introduced into your pipe, then the images are analyzed to get a clear picture of the state of your pipes.

Following a discussion with you, our customer, the plumbing system is cleaned and prepared for the liner, a necessary process to ensure it will install correctly. To clean the pipe, the engineers at Shark Sewer use hydro jetting, which goes beyond a routine “snaking” procedure and deep-cleans your pipes. A jet of high-pressured water is injected into the pipe, where it strips away coated-on kitchen grease, breaks down mineral irregularities, and removes clogs and debris.

Next, the liner is inserted. A resin-saturated lining tube is attached around the end of your pipe, and high pressure forces the liner simultaneously inside out and into your pipe. The resin undergoes a curing process of several hours, and is then ready for use!

What makes “trenchless” so great?

At Shark Sewer, not only our sewer lining but all our services are “trenchless.” These procedures rely on state-of-the-art technology to produce minimally invasive, fast, and hassle-free jobs for our customers. Traditionally, a long trench would be dug in your backyard or into the concrete of your home’s foundation to reach and service whole lengths of pipe at a time.

Trenchless services need only a small access point to reach your pipe, and all repairs or replacements are performed underground, without disturbing your concrete or landscaping.

As an added benefit, trenchless methods are more environmentally friendly. Since your existing pipe stays in place, less waste is sent to a landfill. The long lifespan of a trenchless pipe lining (ten years longer than any other pipe material on the market today) also means that major repairs or replacements will need to occur less frequently, producing less waste and wasting less water over time.

A trenchless job is often completed in less than a day, and you won’t have to contend with additional or hidden costs, such as that of freshly poured concrete.

Sewer Camera Inspection

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re experiencing difficulties with your plumbing system. Whether it’s a serious clog, chronically overflowing toilets, “cranky” elderly plumbing, or another issue, a Shark Sewer camera inspection can help you get to the root of the problem.

Serving locations across Colorado, Shark Sewer has the tools, technology, and professional staff to have your home or business backs to normal in no time!

Why is a sewer camera inspection necessary?

A sewer camera inspection is a powerful diagnostic tool, and is used by the Shark Sewer team to get a clear picture of the state of your pipes, the nature of your damage, and where the problem is located.

This is in contrast to traditional methods, which used an estimated guess to locate the source of your plumbing problem. Another good reason to arrange a sewer camera inspection is prior to the purchase of a new home. Though typical home inspections are extremely thorough, they fail to provide an in-depth assessment of the building’s plumbing.

All pipes, regardless of their material or what they’re used for, have a natural lifespan, which can be drastically shortened depending on the actions of the previous owner (for example, disposing of kitchen grease into pipes can seriously clog them and lead to further damage). Without knowing the true state of your new home’s plumbing system, you could be facing a hefty expense soon after the already considerable expenditure of purchasing a house!

Preventing problems before they start

A great way to mitigate plumbing problems is starting a first line of defense in your home or workplace. Use the following tips to keep your drains clear and your plumbing in good working order:

Trash talk: Place a wastebasket in each bathroom of your building, and encourage family members or employees to use it for any waste that can’t be broken up under a running tap in several seconds. Feminine hygiene products, facial tissues, dental floss, wet wipes, and other trash should never be disposed of in plumbing, as it can cause serious clogging.

Slick moves: Kitchen grease should always be disposed of in the garbage, and never in your plumbing. If poured into your drains, it will coat the pipe similarly to cholesterol coating an artery. Try pouring kitchen grease into toss able containers (such as yogurt cups), then freezing them. When taking out your trash, toss the frozen grease cup in the bag just before walking out the door.

Spring-cleaning: Consider ordering an annual sewer camera inspection and drain cleaning service. Experts recommend this occur once a year for optimal performance of your drains. Any time of year is suitable, as long as outdoor temperatures permit the ground to be soft.

Testimonials

Henry Del Vecchio

We called Shark Sewer because we had water seeping in under our hardwood floors. There was no visible sign of water anywhere on top of the floor, so it was a challenge to find the source of the leak. Luis and Jorge were dispatched to the job, and did their due diligence to narrow down the source of the leak before they started making holes in our newly painted home. They were extremely courteous and professional providing updates every step of the way. We will certainly use them again in the future if we need to.

Sommer Bennett

Luis of Shark inspected our home today (which was a complementary service) and did a wonderful job! He was honest, thorough, and made a lot of fantastic suggestions as well as offered additional services without being pushy (I didn’t feel like someone was automatically trying to take my money or rip-me-off). My experience made me feel very comfortable and I believe he was a great representation of the company! We will be using Shark Sewer in the future if necessary.

Excellent service and professionalism. Don’t trust anyone else in Denver. We are realtors and after being ripped off by a competitor, Shark Sewer came to the home late on a Sunday solved the problem of tree roots growing into my sewer main and left the work area cleaner than it was when he arrived. Highly recommend !
