When Do You Need Sewer Line Replacement?
Residential sewer line replacement is a big project that’s usually done once there’s too much damage to repair. You’ll need a replacement if you have old piping or leaks in lots of different areas. You might also need a replacement if the sewer line wasn’t installed right. The pipes need to be sloped enough to get things flowing, but not sloped too much. If the plumber didn’t get it right, you’re gonna have constant clogs and other problems. We’ll come take a look to see what needs to be done and to give you some recommendations.
What’s Causing Your Sewer Line Problems?
If you’re considering a sewer line replacement, you’re probably fed up with plumbing problems. You might also be wondering what’s causing all the trouble. Lots of things could be going on, but here are the most likely issues:
Pesky Tree Roots
You probably love all of the beautiful plants growing in your yard. But their little roots are always looking for water. And sometimes they find it in your pipes. Roots are surprisingly strong and they can push through tiny little imperfections. This can make cracks bigger and eventually lead to damage that’ll need to be repaired or replaced.
Pipe Corrosion or Old Piping
Hopefully, your sewer line will last a long time. But maybe it was old when you moved in and now you’re having constant problems. It might be that the whole sewer line is past its prime or made from piping that’s corroding. No matter how many times you fix the leaks in old pipes, more will appear, so it’s best to just get the whole thing replaced.
When clogs move to your mainline, it can be bad news. That’s when you’ll start getting backups and other serious issues. Clogs can sometimes lead to flooding or leaks in your house or even close to your foundation. If you have problems with clogs that keep coming back no matter how many times you call for drain cleaning services, it might be a bigger problem with your sewer line.
