Maintaining or updating aging sewer lines
Sewer lines built up until 1970 were constructed of clay, concrete, and orangeburg. These materials are not able to endure as long as the more modern PVC pipes. When natural shifting occurs or tree roots place pressure on the lines, they will crack or begin to leak at connection points.
Homes built before the 1970s should make regular sewer line inspection a part of their annual home maintenance to prevent expansive damage from going unchecked.
What causes mainline issues?
Sewer lines are prone to many potential issues. These include things like shifting, blockages, and pressure from tree roots, to list a few. These issues can especially cause problems for sewer lines that are made from older materials.
It is important that the sewer line from a home, connecting it to the main city line, is in good condition. When it is not, it can lead to leaks that leave unsanitary pooling in a yard or backups in the home. Individual business owners and homeowners are responsible for the side sewer line that connects to the main city line.
What can a sewer line inspection show?
