Signs You Have Sewer Line Issues
While clogged pipes and drains are visible signs of a sewer line problem, there are some that aren’t as easily recognizable. Some may be underground and invisible to your own eyes, but there are other ways to notice when your sewer line is damaged. This includes:
- Water on your floors
- Sewage odor
- Slow drains, clogs, or backups
- The lawn is soggy or really green
- Foundation or exterior walls are cracking
If you notice an odd smell or change in the appearance of areas near your sewer line such as the ones listed above, this is an indicator that your sewer line may be in need of repair. Because your home’s sewer lines run under the ground, it will often be more difficult to notice a sign of damage. However, any change in performance should always be followed by a call to a professional plumber.
How Sewer Line Repair Is Done
Due to the number of pipes, fixtures, and appliances that are all initially connected to the sewer line, it’s crucial that yours is repaired as soon as you notice there’s a malfunction in the system. Lucky for you, once the problem is called to our attention, we don’t spare a second to make sure the problem is resolved.
While you can spot that there’s an initial problem, it’s critical to have a professional, licensed plumber to fix it. In order to fix your sewer line, our plumbers will perform a video inspection in order to pinpoint where the main cause is located. Then, we’ll recommend one of the following methods of repair:
- Traditional: This is the more common method where our plumbers will use a backhoe to dig up the area around your sewer line to allow us easy access to where the problem is located.
- Trenchless: Small holes are dug up to access where the problem begins and ends within the pipes. A new pipe is then pulled through the existing damaged pipe to replace, causing the old one to burst during this transition.
The trenchless method is less damaging to your yard, sidewalk, driveway, or wherever the sewer line lies on your property. Every Columbia, SC home is different, which is why it’s important to work with an expert plumbing service company to ensure the best results.
