If you live in Cincinnati, chances are you already know about the massive problems the city is facing with its sewer system. During periods of heavy rainfall, thousands of homes around Cincinnati are at risk of sewage backing up into their homes. That’s why it’s so important that you ensure your home’s pipes are in good working order.
Cincinnati’s Sewer Problem
Although the Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) is working on a $3 billion upgrade to the city’s sewer infrastructure, it’s a long way from fixing the problem. Since many of Cincinnati’s neighborhoods were built on or near streams, heavy rain floods the city’s sewers, overwhelming the capacity of the aging system. According to a recent report from WCPO Cincinnati, it will take an additional $30 billion to perform the repairs needed to keep this from happening.
Sewer Camera Inspection
Although there is little homeowners can do to protect against city-wide flooding, there may be steps you can take that will reduce the risk of sewage backing up into your home, such as making sure drains and lateral sewer pipes are connected properly to the city’s sewer system.
Of course, in addition to municipal sewer issues, your home’s pipe system may have problems resulting from tree roots, improper installation, aging pipes, scale buildup, and more. Improperly functioning sewer pipes can lead to devastating sewage flooding, destroying your possessions as well as posing a serious health risk for your family. CME Sewer Repair uses a CCTV camera to inspect your sewer system, identifying any problems without any digging.

Trenchless Sewer Repair
Most people think that problems with sewer pipes automatically mean extensive digging, causing costly damage to the lawn, garden, and sometimes even the driveway or carport. CME Sewer Repair uses trenchless sewer repair to fix your pipe from within. This requires only one small access hole to be dug. In trenchless sewer repair, a cutting edge polymer resin is used to coat the inside of the pipe, effectively creating a new pipe within the old one. Once it hardens, this resin will outlast clay, steel, and even PVC pipes. This non-invasive method is affordable, convenient, and time-effective.
