Know the Signs of a Broken Sewer Pipe

Call us for sewer line repair as soon as possible if you see any of these common warning signs. Signs of a broken sewer pipe include:

  • A strange noise that sounds like gurgling coming from one or more toilet
  • The reduced water level in your toilet
  • A shower or bathtub drain that is slow to drain or doesn’t drain at all
  • Sewage backup in your toilet, shower, or tub
  • A noticeable and recurring sewer odor in your home, basement, or yard
  • Green grass growing near your sewer pipe
  • A flooded yard (along with one or more of the above signs)

What Caused My Sewer Line Damage?

When you contact us for sewer line repair or replacement, we use a thorough, careful sewer line inspection process to determine where the problem is, how serious it is, and what caused it. Common causes of sewer line damage include:

  • Lack of maintenance or repairs
  • Improper or poor repairs
  • Improper installation
  • A buildup of hair, grease, oil, bathroom products, debris, or other sludge in the pipes
  • Tree roots that have intruded into your sewer pipes
  • The frequent ground freezes and thaws
  • Frequent nearby earth movement due to construction, traffic, or earthquakes
  • Age-related wear and tear of the pipes
  • Bad pipe layout or design
  • Sewer system backup from the city’s sewer line

Over time, any pipe will need to be repaired or replaced due to damage and wear and tear. While some pipes last longer than others, no pipe is guaranteed to last a lifetime.

How We Fix Broken Sewer Lines

When we visit your home for sewer line repair or replacement, we will use our video-assisted inspection to diagnose the location and cause of your sewer line problem. We use a camera inspection to eliminate the need for intrusive methods like trenching, digging, and demolition. By threading a camera through your pipes, we can carefully and efficiently uncover the underlying issues with your sewer line. Once we have determined the cause and extent of your sewer line damage, we will use one of these sewer line repair methods:

  • Pipe Relining Method - This method allows us to line your pipes from the inside out, so cracks and damage are sealed. We first completely clean out the pipe and then apply a protective lining or seal, which hardens over a few hours. This essentially creates a new pipe inside of the old one, so damage, holes, cracks, and breaks are repaired without needing to dig up your yard.
  • Burst Pipe Hydraulic Replacement Method - If there is extensive damage to your sewer pipe and pipe relining won’t work, we may recommend using hydraulics to break apart the damaged pipe so we can install new piping. This method is also trenchless and minimally disruptive. As we break apart the old pipe, we will pull a newer sewer pipe through.
  • Preventative Pipe Maintenance Services - If you want to prevent sewer system backups and sewer line damage from occurring in the first place, we offer routine preventative pipe maintenance services. Our Advantage Plan allows you to schedule sewer line inspections and drain cleaning services that reduce your risk of debris buildup, clogs, cracks, and burst pipes.

Replacing Your Sewer Line

Our service professionals at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Lubbock will never recommend you pay for a product or service you don’t need. We will only suggest sewer line replacement if your pipes are too damaged to repair and/or it would be faster and more cost-effective to replace pipes than to try to repair them. If you need sewer line replacement, we will fully explain your options, how long it will take, and how much it will cost before we begin work. We use a trenchless sewer line replacement system that doesn’t require digging or demolition. Our trenchless method is quick, cost-effective, and helps you get back to your normal daily routine as soon as possible with minimal disruption.
