Sewer Line Repair

If you are having issues with your sewer backing up- it could be that you need a sewer line repair.

Why Do Sewer Lines Break?

Sewer lines break for a variety of reasons. Most often, it is due to tree roots growing into the sewer line and causing damage. Other common causes include corrosion, ground movement, and sewer line settlement.

Most Common Causes of Sewer Line Clogs

If your sewer line is clogged, it is likely due to a build-up of grease, soap residue, hair, and other debris. This can happen over time and is usually the result of improper maintenance. Tree roots, corroded pipes, debris, or extreme temperatures can also cause clogs.

In addition, some sewer line problems in your home stem from poor workmanship or materials when original installation took place.

If your residence is over a few decades old, it is a good idea to have a certified technician conduct an inspection and sewer line camera inspection to check for any potential problems.

How Do You Know If You Need a Sewer Line Repair or Replacement?

If you have a sewer line that is frequently clogged or backs up, it is likely that you need a sewer line repair or replacement. Other signs that you may need to call a sewer line plumbing specialist include:

  • Water pooling in your yard

  • Sewage odors coming from your yard

  • Gurgling sounds coming from your drains

  • Slow drains

  • Frequent backups

  • Water damage inside your home

Additionally, if you have a sewer line that is over 50 years old, it is likely time for a replacement. Old pipes rust and corrode, and are much more likely to break.

Why Maintaining Your Home's Sewer Lines is Important

Sewer line repair and replacement can be expensive, so it is important to keep your sewer lines well-maintained. This means regularly cleaning your drains and performing regular maintenance on your sewer lines. You should also have a professional inspect your sewer lines every few years to ensure that they are in good condition.

I called G&C at 7:43 AM, before they were supposed to open and was greeted by a very friendly person. She was able to send someone out very quickly and Casey and Tony quickly determined the cause to be a blocked sewer line between the house and the tank.
