Causes of Sewer Line Damage

Poor maintenance is one of the most common causes of sewer line damage. Neglecting regular inspections, cleaning, and maintenance can lead to buildup of debris, grease, sludge in pipes as well as tree roots infiltrating pipe holes and joints. Additionally, regular ground freezes and thaws due to weather conditions or earthquakes can cause significant damage to sewer lines over time.

Signs that Your Sewer Pipe May Be Broken

There are several warning signs that indicate your sewer pipe may be broken including gurgling noises from toilets, lack of water in toilets, slow draining bathtubs, sewage backup in toilet/tub, sewer odor near the property’s perimeter, and flooded yards with greener grass than usual. If you notice any of these signs it’s important to contact our professional sewer line experts in Flint immediately before further damage occurs.

Frequently asked questions about sewer line repair & replacement

How do you know if your sewer line is damaged?

There are multiple warning signs that can indicate a potentially damaged sewer line. Common red flags include slow-draining sinks and toilets, water backing up into your home, a gurgling sound coming from your drains, and persistent foul odors. If you notice one or more of these symptoms, it's worth contacting a professional to conduct an inspection and determine the root cause of the problem.

How serious is a crack in the sewer line?

A crack in your sewer line is a cause for concern, as it can lead to major issues if left untreated. A small crack can expand over time, eventually causing sewage to leak into your yard, creating an unpleasant smell and even attracting rodents. In some cases, minor sewer line cracks can be repaired using a pipe lining technique. However, if the crack is extensive, you may need to resort to a more comprehensive sewer line replacement.

How do you know when your sewer line needs to be replaced?

There are several indicators that your existing sewer line may be beyond repair and needs to be replaced. A few key signs include recurring clog issues, persistent sewage smells from your yard or inside your home, and patches of your lawn that seem to be unusually well-fertilized or frequently saturated with water. Additionally, if your home utilizes an older clay or iron sewer pipe which is known for its vulnerability to root intrusion and corrosion, replacement may be inevitable. A professional inspection can help determine the necessity of a sewer line replacement.
