Do You Need Sewer Line Repair?
Since water, especially from your sewer line, can cause a lot of damage in a short amount of time, you should never ignore signs of a leak. Sometimes a leak can be fixed easily with a quick plumbing repair or a garbage disposal replacement. But if they’re happening deeper in your plumbing, there’s gonna be a little more work involved. Keep an eye out for these signs of a leak in your sewer line:
- Water Stains: You might see brown water stains on your ceiling or walls. You might even find damp or warm spots on your carpet.
- Lush Spots or Wet Spots on Your Lawn: If you see a spot in your grass that’s extra lush you might think “great, look how healthy my grass is!” Your grass might be healthy, but whatever is lurking under the surface sure isn’t. A sewer leak can cause sections of your lawn to be greener, and can also cause pools of water to show up in your yard.
- Bad-Smelling Yard: You won’t always get pools of water, but sometimes the gas from a leak can escape and make your yard smell like sewage.
- Clogs: If you’ve got clogs that keep coming back, or your toilet’s backing up into your tub, it may be because of sewer line damage.
Damaged sewer lines are gonna show their face somehow, and when they do, give us a call. We’ll help you decide if you just need a small section repaired, or if you need a sewer line replacement. We’re always gonna be straightforward about what we recommend.

What Can Cause Sewer Line Damage?
Not everyone knows that some things shouldn’t end up in the drains. Grease should never be poured down the drains, and you should only use toilet paper in the toilets. Wipes (even the “flushable” kind) probably shouldn’t be flushed, and you should never put food scraps down the pipes if you don’t have a garbage disposal. Clogs could be the reason you need sewer line repair.
Your sewer line might also get damaged if there are tree roots growing into the pipes. You wouldn’t think they’d be stronger than your pipes, but they can make their way in and cause leaks.
Do you know what your pipes are made out of? If you’ve still got galvanized pipes, you might be experiencing frequent leaks. If this isn’t the first time you’ve had problems, you may wanna look into a replacement since galvanized steel can corrode easier than other materials.
