Identifying the Need for Sewer Line Repair

Though it isn’t always easy to identify a potential problem with your sewer line, there are a few things you can watch out for that may indicate it’s time to reach out to a professional for help with sewer line repairs. One of the first factors to keep in mind is that generally if a problem arises with your sewer line, you’ll be likely to experience multiple issues with all of the drains in your home. 

For example, if you find yourself experiencing especially slow-moving drains in more than one of your home’s fixtures – or if all of your drains suddenly stop flowing – it’s probably time to call in a plumbing professional. They can perform a service such as a plumbing video camera inspection to quickly get to the source of the issue and identify the kind of sewer line repair you need.

Another thing to watch out for is foul odors arising from the drains in your home. Your drains shouldn’t have an odor, and a particularly gassy scent coming from your drains could indicate a sewer line is broken. This is because the break in the sewer line could be allowing toxic gases from that line to make their way up and into your home.

You should also be aware of problems such as a sudden influx of rodents or insects around your home. This isn’t always a sign of plumbing issues. However, rodents and insects can sometimes make their way in through breaks in sewer lines, and they may also be attracted to excessive amounts of wastewater that have escaped from those damaged areas. The growth of mold or mildew, especially in areas such as the basement, may also indicate damp areas on your property where wastewater has been allowed to escape. 

Unfortunately, many different things can lead to clogs or to sewer line damage. Tree roots are a common culprit, and they can cause issues by pushing pipes out of alignment or by growing into pipes in the areas where they connect. Pipes may also experience damage due to corrosion. After all, they are exposed to wastewater constantly, which can cause the metal to oxidize and potentially burst. This is all in addition to common issues such as clogs or accidents that have occurred due to digging above sewer lines.
