Signs of Needing a Sewer Repair
There are certainly signs that one will immediately know are due to a sewer line issue, like the horrible odors, or a back flow of materials from ones plumbing pipes, but here are some other signs that all is not okay.
Broken Sewer Pipe Signs
Gurgling noises from toilets.
No water in the toilet.
Bathtubs will not drain or drain slowly.
Sewage back ups.
Water that is creating pools in the yard most all the time.
Ones water or sewer bill increases for no other apparent reason.
Why Sewer Lines Become Damaged
Sewer pipes are composed of different materials, all of which have their unique reasons they can fail or clog over time. For cast-iron drain pipes, they will corrode over time. This is something that will not happen to a sewer pipe composed of clay. Clay drain pipes will have issues with calcium buildup though.
Our Sewer Repair Services Are For. . .
Broken, cracked, or collapsed pipes
Sewer lines can be damaged due to shifting soil, frozen ground, and the ground settling.
Grease and oil buildup or a foreign object may restrict proper flow. We can clean this from the sewer line.
Older sewer pipes will deteriorated and eventually break causing sections of the pipe to collapse and restrict flow.
The seals between sewer pipes can break, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.
Sections of the sewer pipes can sink due to ground or soil conditions, creating a valley in which waste collects.
Tree or shrub roots can grow into sewer pipes and can even break the pipe entirely. Roots are searching for water and nutrients and the contents of ones sewer lines provide that.
How We Repair Sewer Lines
Saia Plumbing uses its plumbing video camera inspection equipment to first have a look inside ones sewer pipes to see what is happening where. This video technology is very accurate in helping us pinpoint where a leak is occurring. This is will allow us to determine the extent of the repair that will be needed, or if we will need to do a sewer pipe replacement. We are successful at only needing to do a repair most of the time, but there will be situations when a sewer replacement will be the best solution in the long run. We will let homeowners know the repair process and costs before we begin any work then.
