How to Tell if You Have a Broken Sewer Line in Your Home

There are many signs to look out for when trying to determine if you have a broken sewer line. Allow the professionals at All Star Service and Repair to help by explaining some of these warning signs:

Sewage Backup

If you experience sewage backups when you flush your toilet or drain water through your sinks and showers, you could have a broken or clogged sewer line.

Foul Odors

We all know that awful sewer smell, so it shouldn’t be hard to tell if it’s happening. This smell can be in your home or outside near the piping as well.

Slow Drains

Continuous slow draining in the kitchen or bathroom could mean trouble. We offer drain cleaning services if it’s a simple fix, but we can also help when it’s more complicated.

Vibrant Green Patches in the Lawn

Since sewage is the oldest form of fertilizer, seeing random patches of grass that are far more vibrant than others could mean there is a sewage leak in that area.

Sinkholes

Constant saturation underneath soil can cause it to collapse over time. A sinkhole could be a sign of a severe leak.

Water Pooling

Similar to sinkholes, these pools can form if the leak reaches the ground surface.

Insect or Rodent Infestation

Bugs and rodents can find their way through cracked pipes, so if you’re suddenly seeing them and never have before, it’s a bad sign.

How Does a Sewer Line Work? What Causes Sewer Line Backups?

Your home’s main sewer line transports waste to your nearest wastewater treatment plant. All of your home’s drains are connected to your main sewer line. If you happen to live in an area without municipal sewer lines, your main sewer line is connected to a septic system instead. Blockages from the buildup of hair, grease, food, and other debris and tree root infiltration are often the culprits behind damaged or clogged sewer lines. Other common causes include pipe corrosion, shifting soil, deterioration due to age, and extreme changes in local weather and temperatures, which can leave the ground frozen and cause burst pipes beneath the surface.

While you probably don’t give your sewer lines much thought, you’re technically responsible for keeping the ones underneath your property clear. If you’ve noticed any of the common warning signs of a sewer line backup we mentioned above, you’ll want to call an experienced plumber and pronto. Attempting to fix sewer lines on your own can lead to further damages to your plumbing and bigger headaches for you.

How Long Do Sewer Lines Last? When Should You Replace Them?

How long your sewer lines will last largely depends on their construction material. Clay sewer pipes can last anywhere from 50-60 years, cast-iron pipes usually last 80-100 years, and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipes should last 100 years or longer. No matter what type of sewer pipes you have, you can expect them to deteriorate over time. Eventually, every homeowner will need a sewer line replacement. Once you notice the warning signs, it’s time to call in a professional plumber to inspect your drainage system.

The best way to avoid clogged sewer lines and other issues is to invest in regular sewer line cleaning services. You won’t have to worry about unexpected system damages when you rely on our experts to examine your sewer lines utilizing state-of-the-art sewer line camera inspections. Thanks to these high-resolution in-pipe cameras, we can determine if you need sewer line repair or sewer line replacement.
