When it comes to plumbing problems, the longer you wait, the worse the problem usually gets. If you’re not a plumber and if you’ve never had sewer line problems before, you might not even be sure if what you’re experiencing is a problem or not. Signs that you might need to schedule a sewer line replacement include:
Water Won’t Drain
Often, clogs happen in the pipes directly connected to your plumbing fixtures (things like sinks and showers). If you have multiple fixtures that seem clogged at once, that’s when you likely have a clog in your main sewage line. This is called a mainline clog. If your toilet or showers gurgle when you use other fixtures, that’s usually a dead giveaway that you’re dealing with a mainline clog. We’d be happy to try clearing that clog up for you, but it’ll only be a temporary fix. Major clogs like that are usually the result of some kind of issue that needs repair or replacement instead.
Water Damage in Your Gastonia Home
If a drain line is broken or cracked, it can leak into your home! If you’ve been noticing wet spots or mold, you should definitely call a professional plumber like Morris-Jenkins! We know exactly how to locate the source of the leak so you can decide if a repair or a replacement would be a better choice.
Flooded or Smelly Yard
Because your sewage lines carry out things you flush, you can imagine why a leak would smell bad. Even though sewer lines are buried deep in the ground, water can begin to pool up from underneath, and sewage gases can seep through the ground. Trust us, this symptom is hard to ignore.
When you think you might have a damaged sewer line that needs replacing, don’t put it off! Give us a call!
Why Replace Instead of Repair?
When you call a plumber out to repair your broken sewage lines, they’re actually just replacing sections of pipe. This is great if the damage is centralized to one location, but if your sewage lines have more extensive damage or are beginning to wear down overall, it might be worth replacing it all instead of waiting for disaster to strike.
