Signs You Need Sewer Line Repairs
Sewer lines are designed to last quite a long time. In fact, there’s a fairly good chance that you’ll never actually need to repair or replace yours. However, that is not a certainty by any means. Problems can and do occur with sewer lines, and it’s important that you be able to recognize when there is an issue with the one on your property.
First, keep an eye out for any foul–smelling pools that may appear in your front or back yards. When a large leak or rupture occurs in the sewer line, wastewater leaks out into the soil around it. Eventually, the wastewater is forced up to the surface and begins to pool. This is not only an issue for your sewer line, but it poses a biohazard for the surrounding area. Call for repairs as soon as you notice this issue.
You also need to watch for frequent plumbing backups, and horrible smells coming out of your drains. Both of those things are indications of a problem in your plumbing system, usually because of a backup somewhere in the line. This can be caused by a number of issues. The pipe could be obstructed by waste, or tree roots. It could also be bellying, which is when shifting ground causes the line to become bent in such a way that water can no longer flow through it properly. Either way, it’s a good idea to make sure that you call for a professional when you suspect a problem.
How to Maintain Your Sewer Line
The best way to avoid problems like those listed above is to make sure you schedule sewer cleaning services at least once a year. The majority of sewer line issues don’t develop quickly. They build up over time, and only start to become noticeable once they’re quite far advanced. So, if you want to save your sewer line from issues like these, you should call for sewer line maintenance annually.
This will allow your plumber to find and fix issues with your sewer line before they become too much of a problem. You can potentially save thousands of dollars in repair costs by scheduling regular sewer line maintenance.
