How to Tell When a Sewer Line Needs Replacement
Before your sewer line completely breaks and reaches full-crisis mode, there are some warning signs to look out for that can help you identify the problem early on!
- Odor: A foul odor of raw sewage rising from your drains, including toilets, sinks, tubs, and showers can be an indication that a sewage line is damaged.
- Slow Draining: If all of your home’s drains are experiencing slow drainage, there may be more than a simple clog at work. A partially collapsed sewage line can result in slower draining for the entire home.
- Backflow: If water backs up into your tub, sink or shower when your washing machine drains out or when you flush the toilet, this can be an indication of a sewage line in need of replacement.
Tree Roots Damaging Sewer Lines
A root system of a tree is designed to actively seek out sources of moisture in the ground to keep the tree alive and healthy. If a tree’s root system is located close enough to your sewer line, you can count on the roots eventually seeking out the sewage line, breaking through weakened material, and eventually growing inside the pipe to clog it completely. This is a common problem that many households face at some point, and it is something you should look out for if you live in a heavily wooded area.
Diagnosing and Fixing a Sewer Line
If you suspect that there is a problem with your sewer line, our team can perform a video inspection to locate and assess any problem areas. If the problem is a small clog from accumulating grease or tree roots, it may be treatable in a localized area.
If you live in an older home with sewage pipes made from outdated materials, the entire system may be breaking down in multiple locations. Patching small areas may seem like an easy solution, but it can actually be more expensive over time. Replacing the complete sewage line with PVC pipes, which can last for over 100 years when properly installed, is the best solution for these situations.
