Do I Need Sewer Line Repair?

Many of the symptoms of sewer line damage are pretty obvious, and smelly. When cracks develop inside the pipe, waste water seeps into the surrounding ground, creating soggy patches inside your yard. The grass around the affected area starts to grow especially green and tall. You may even find yourself stepping in unexplained puddles!

In worst case scenarios, a damage sewer line may fill up with miscellaneous blockage and direct water back into the house. If that happens, you’ll need to immediately stop using water appliances and call a plumber for sewer line repair. Contact your plumber as soon as possible, even if you have to request emergency service.

Causes

The Usual Suspects of Sewer Line Damage

Sewer line damage originates from both inside and outside the pipe. From the inside, clogs often create the worst damage. As blockage from hardened mineral content, food solids, human waste, hygienic products, and all kinds of materials squeeze through the line, pressure pushes outwards against the sides of the pipe. Eventually, the incredible force creates tiny fractures in the sewer line which grow over time. Long-term rust can have the same effect, only it often spreads throughout the entire length of the pipe.

From the outside, shifting ground and tree roots can also wreak havoc on your pipes. When tree roots sense the traces of moisture seeping out of the pipe, they often penetrate the side to take advantage. Some of the most stubborn clogs are produced by root infestation. They also severely damage your sewer line.

Making Repairs

Rendering Repairs for Lasting Results

To make sure repairs last, our plumbers need to understand what caused the damage to your pipe. That’s why we like to start by cleaning out the drain line and examining the interior via a sewer camera inspection. This allows us to identify both the affected areas of the line and the causes of the pipe trauma.

After your personal plumber finishes their inspection, they will talk you through the repair process and your most cost-effective options. Since we will have already identified the damaged areas of the line, we won’t have to dig indiscriminately to find it. That’s good news for your yard! Once we’ve completed our repairs, you can expect the results to last for years to come.
