Knowing the Signs of Damage in Your Sewer Line
You never wanna wait to get your sewer line repaired if there’s something wrong with it. When you’re dealing with water (especially from your sewer line), the sooner you can get it to stop going where it shouldn’t, the better. That’s why it’s important to know what to watch out for. Here are a couple signs of damaged sewer lines.
- Frequent or Major Clogs: An occasional clog that just affects one sink or tub probably means you’ve got a little food or hair blocking things up. But if you’ve got several different things clogging all at once, you might be looking at something more serious.
- Changes in Your Yard: If your yard is changing, it could just be that you’re doing some landscaping. But pools of water, a foul odor, or areas that are lush for no visible reason may mean that there’s something going on under the surface.
- Water Damage Inside: It can feel like something out of a nightmare when you find mold, stains, or water damage in your house. But don’t worry, we can fix the leak so it won’t happen again.
If you’re wondering if you need to have your sewer line repaired or replaced, we’ll help you out with that! Repairs are perfect for when the damage is just in a small section. We can fix that section while leaving everything else intact. A sewer line replacement is for when your whole system is corroded or damaged.

The Causes of Sewer Line Damage
If your sewer line has become damaged, you might be happy to know you’re probably not to blame. There’s a lot that can happen outside your control. Tree roots can invade your pipes and cause leaking. You could also have an older system that’s made from galvanized steel. This material can corrode easily, leaving you with damage to your pipes.
You can help prevent more sewer line damage by being careful what you put down the drains. Clogged pipes can also cause damage. Any time you flush something besides toilet paper, or you put grease, oil, or food down the drain, you’re risking a clog. You should also avoid using chemical clog removal products since they can damage your pipes.
