Plumbing - Know the importance of requesting a sewer repair

If you’re experiencing any plumbing problems, it’s important to get them taken care of as soon as possible. The most common issue that homeowners deal with is a clogged drain; this can lead even further down in your pipes and cause sewer line issues too! Grease build-up will affect how well our sewers work so we want everyone else who has those types of troublemakers around their homes, to get rid of them ASAP. Don’t let anything go unaddressed just because they seem easier or less urgent than other things going wrong at first glance.

A broken sewer line can be a real nightmare. Not only is it unsightly, but it poses a serious health risk. We offer sewer repair services that fix your plumbing problem as quickly as possible so you don’t have to worry about water getting into the walls or ceilings of your home and causing major damage.

It is essential that businesses and homeowners recognize the signs of root invasion. When roots begin to get into the sewer line pipe, they will cause blockages within the system. If you notice that your sewer system has gradually started to slow down or that you hear weird sounds coming from a toilet, it may be time to contact our sewer repair service staff.

Signs that you may need to sewer repair

You might not be able to see it with your naked eye, but there are some pretty obvious signs that indicate that you need professional sewer repair services. Here are a few common signs that indicate you may have a broken sewer pipe:

  • The low water level in your toilets
  • Bathtubs and showers drain slowly
  • Odd gurgling noises coming from your toilets
  • Sewage backed up in your toilet, tub, or sink
  • Strong sewer odor coming from the drains in your house

The most common problem of not requesting a sewer repair expert

  • Breaks in the pipes
  • Severe grease build-up
  • Tree root invasion
  • Leaky pipe joints
  • Corroded pipes

Benefits of changing your sewer

Sewer Line Repair Service

A sewer line backup or leak can be frustrating to deal with as a homeowner. Along with the unpleasant smell and messy cleanup of a compromised sewer pipe, it can be difficult to pinpoint the root cause of your sewage problem.

To help prevent sewer line damage or mitigate an issue when it arises, it’s important to know how to spot the main causes of sewer line damage. Here are the common causes of a damaged sewer line, signs to look for, and how you can repair or replace your sewer system.

  • Tree Roots
  • Corroded Pipes
  • Clogged Pipes Due to Debris and Foreign Objects
  • Extreme Temperatures

Do I Need Sewer Line Repair or Line Replacement?

When a sewer line sustains permanent damage, issues such as clogs or poor drainage will never resolve until that damage is corrected. Because pipe damage creates similar symptoms as clogs, homeowners have a hard time telling between sewer repair replacement needs.

It can be appropriate to repair sewer lines if the issue is minor and fixable. When pipes become permanently compromised, pipe replacement is the only viable solution. Watch for these signs that can indicate permanent sewer pipe damage:

  • Puddles of water in the yard. If a sewer line break allows large volumes of sewage to seep and pool in the yard, there is no question that sewer repair service is needed. The old pipe no longer has the capacity to adequately retain and direct sewage to the sewer.
  • Sewer odors in or around your property. Sewer line damage is often discovered due to family members detecting strong sewer odors either inside living areas or outside around the home. Exposure to sewer gases can be dangerous, so these plumbing problems should be corrected immediately.
  • Consistent poor drainage from fixtures. When all bathtubs, showers, sinks and other plumbing fixtures consistently suffer from slow drainage, the problem often can be traced back to the sewer pipe. Sewer pipe repair can solve root problems such as clogs, but when pipe damage causes poor drainage, it is preferable to call in a sewer repair professional.

When you notice any of the symptoms of sewer line issues, call your plumber right away. Sewer line replacement is one of the bigger jobs a plumber performs, but new methods make it so this task is not disruptive to your home or family. Trenchless sewer technology allows underground pipes to be replaced with little disturbance above ground. No digging, no destroyed flower beds, no dirty mess.

Signs of Sewer Line Damage

To prevent further damage, it’s important to know the signs of a damaged sewer system so that you can take immediate action and contact an experienced service technician.

  • Flooded or Foul-Smelling Yard: A yard that’s flooded can be a sign of a broken sewer pipe. Sewer lines can be buried anywhere between a couple of feet to six feet below the ground, with colder climates calling for deeper pipes. For sewer lines close to the surface, a broken pipe can quickly begin to pool water which seeps through the grass and becomes visible on the surface. You may be able to smell the sewage before it surfaces, as sewage gas can seep through your yard’s soil.
  • Draining Difficulties: While some blockages are caused by a pipe leading directly from a faucet or shower, you can detect a blockage in the main sewage line if multiple draining areas in the home are clogging. Toilets can warn of severe blockages if strange gurgling sounds occur when air gets pushed back up the line.
  • Water Damage in the Home: Water damage can occur if a drain line leaks or breaks in the home. One of the first signs is mold spreading on the floors or walls. This could point to a broken sewer line within the home, in which case you should call a plumbing service immediately.
