What Causes a Sewer Line to Clog or Break?
Paying attention to the early signs of a sewer line backup can save property owners from facing expensive replacement costs that spill over into things like landscaping work and building restoration.
Your home’s plumbing system is interconnected, so any issue located in the main, or primary, sewer line is going to cause problems for all of the secondary (or ‘inside the house’) lines. If the issue is isolated to one area of the building, there’s a chance it’s a much simpler, and accessible, fix.
If you’re not sure, give us a call. We’re happy to help you with a rudimentary diagnosis over the phone, offer an estimate, and give you a rough idea of the scope of work needed. For a more precise diagnosis, we can schedule a visit to inspect the main line.
Our inspection does not typically involve excavation or digging in the yard. We use video technology to thoroughly inspect the lines through what’s called the ‘clean out,’ allowing us to release the pressure in the line and efficiently identify what’s causing the backup.
Early signs of a sewer line malfunction include:
- Clogged or Percolating Toilets or Drains
- Sinkholes in the Yard
- Low Water Pressure from Multiple Faucets
- Sewage Odor
Causes of main line issues:
- Tree Roots
- Solids Buildup
- Pipe Corrosion
- Cracked or Damaged Pipe
Options for sewer line repair
A sewer line cleanout is a simple and inexpensive procedure, so if we suspect that this will fix the issue, we will always default to the most cost-effective solution first.
If the clean out does not solve the issue, a camera line inspection will help us pinpoint exactly where the issue is without having to break ground. If pipes need repair or replacement, we are able to minimize and isolate the area to avoid disruption to your yard.
