When you need a sewer line replaced, there are a couple of ways that your home and your yard will let you know. Here are a few of the most common problems you might notice:
Water That Won’t Drain
A clog that affects your entire plumbing system is called a mainline clog. When this happens, instead of a single toilet backing up, you might have multiple drains filling with water. Your shower might even let out a little gurgle when you flush the toilet.
Using a drain snake might seem to help for a short time, but when a clog is deep in your pipes, backups can start to happen more often. If the problem gets bad enough, it could be a sign that you need sewer line replacement.
Water, Water Everywhere
Moisture in your home can be a serious problem. Burst lines can cause damage to your drywall, insulation, and other building materials. It can even lead to mold growing throughout your home.
Look for wet spots and discolorations on ceilings, floors, and walls. It’s much better to find and fix a problem when it’s small than to deal with burst pipes down the line!
Flooded or Smelly Yard
When sewer lines burst underground, they can create puddles that never seem to drain…even if it’s been a while since it last rained.
Sewer gasses can also start to leak out, creating some not-so-neighborly smells. This is one of those signs you probably won’t have to work hard to notice.
Why Replace Instead of Repair?
At Morris-Jenkins, we’ll always look for ways to repair a problem before we suggest a replacement. But sometimes, sewer line replacement is the only option, especially if your pipes are corroded, decades old, or leaking in multiple places.
