Signs That You Need A Sewer Line Replaced
Replacing a sewer line is not what most people consider a desirable home improvement project. However, this is a project that can save you a lot of money. Replacing a pipe that is at the end of its life expectancy, is far less costly than waiting for the pipe to fail. Then you will pay for water damage repair, decontamination, and a new sewer pipe. The type of pipe and your climate are both factors to determine how long your sewer pipe should last and when to have it replaced.
If you have many trees in your yard, you should also understand that the tree roots can considerably shorten the life expectancy of your piping. Furthermore, regions with freezing winter weather will also shorten a pipe life expectancy due to the expansion and contraction of the soil as it freezes and thaws.
If you are noticing odd sounds coming from your sewer line or are experiencing frequent clogs, these are signals from the pipe that it is time for a sewer line replacement. Wastewater will make odd sounds as it is forced past a clog or a damaged section of piping. Also, frequent clogs are a sign of multiple areas with damage along the sewer line.
A few signs of a broken or damaged sewer line include:
Issues That Can Impact The Function Of Your Sewer Line
As with most pipes, clogs are the number one issue to plague sewer lines. This is not necessarily because you have forced something down the pipe that is too large. It can be a simple case of debris and residue build-up. As you can imagine, there is a great deal of debris flowing through a sewer line. Over time, this debris and waste create a sticky scum that coats the inside of the pipe. That residue then becomes the perfect place for garbage and waste to begin to get stuck and form a clog.
The other common nemesis of sewer lines are the roots of your trees and other large plants. The roots grow around the sewer line and slowly create small cracks in the pipe or even crush the pipe completely. Once there is even a tiny crack in the sewer pipe, the tree roots begin to grow into the pipe in search of the water and waste, which is a natural fertilizer. As the roots grow, they create a clog in the pipe and can also completely shatter the pipe. In this case you need a sewer line repair as soon as possible.
When you notice an issue with your sewer drain pipe, a fast call to (818) 740-6830 is always a wise choice. A Turbo Plumbing & Rooter professional will arrive quickly to inspect the sewer line and make a recommendation for repairs or replacement. Your fast action can save you a great deal of time, frustration, and money as well as the mess created by a sewer line backup.
Not All Sewer Lines Belong To The City
As a homeowner, you might not have been aware that you own the sewer line that runs from your home to the city sewer main. Your sewer line is a single pipe that carries all of the dirty water and waste from your sinks, tubs, and toilets to the city sewer main. This pipe is buried under your property and can pass under grass, sidewalks, and even your driveway before reaching the city sewer. Also, you are financially responsible for the maintenance, care of, and replacement of this piping.
