To avoid costly repairs and replacements later, you should be aware of broken sewer line signs present in and around your building. But how can you know if your sewer line is broken without digging up the pipes?
The common signs can be easy to spot and include:
- Bad smells inside or outside of your building
- The increased presence of vermin, like mice and other rodents
- Standing water or sinkholes in the yard around your business
- Slow-draining toilets, sinks, and drains
- Erratic rising and falling water levels in the toilet
- Gurgling from drains
These issues are commonly a result of the material the pipe is made from — cast iron will corrode and rust, clay is brittle and PVC/ABS plastic pipes can crack. If you are noticing any of these symptoms at your business, call one of the professionals at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Oneida to investigate and repair the issue.
Common Commercial Sewer Problems
At your business, you might commonly encounter pipe damage and clogs in your sewer line. Pipe damage can occur from several issues — tree root infiltration, broken or misaligned pipes caused by shifting soil, sunken pipes where waste can converge, or leaking joints from broken seals. Clogs are often caused by grease or other waste built up in the pipes over time.
Common Sewer Line Repair
If you have a situation that requires sewer line repair, one of our licensed plumbers can assess the damage and provide the solution that works best for your situation and budget. We can help you with:
- Pipe relining: With this method, we’ll give you new pipes from the inside out or realign existing pipes by fitting them with a sleeve to prevent cracks. We start by cleaning out the pipes. Then, we apply a lining that will harden in only a few hours.
- Bursting: If the damage to the pipe is too extensive, we’ll pull a new pipe through the old one using hydraulics to break apart the damaged piece.
- Preventative maintenance: To avoid any major damages, it’s always wise to have a professional perform preventative maintenance. With regular drain cleanings and inspections, you can avoid clogs and buildups that lead to breaks and cracks.
Commercial Sewer Line Replacement
Sometimes sewer lines are too damaged for a simple repair and will need a sewer pipe replacement. Often, it can be more cost-effective to replace the pipe versus try repairs, especially if the pipes are made of inferior materials that can often lead to leaks, damage, and roots. These factors cause increased problems in the future.

Our professionals can review the problems and your available replacement options, providing professional recommendations that are within your needs and budget.
