Reasons You May Need Sewer Line Repair and Replacement
Sewer lines need to be repaired or replaced for a wide variety of reasons. They can get clogged or get punctured, causing compromised functionality. Signs that your sewer line might be damaged include: slow drainage, weakened water pressure, leaks, foul smell stemming from wastewater leak-out, and an increased number of insects and pests.
Some of the most common reasons why sewer lines get damaged:
- Deterioration of pipes – With age, pipes used for sewer lines can deteriorate. It doesn’t matter what type of material is used for the pipes; they will erode in time. Eventually, the damage can get significant enough that the pipes will break down, creating punctures and/or obstructions.
- Puncture caused by tree roots – Roots are a common cause of pipe puncture. As plants grow, their roots grow further downward, inadvertently hitting pipe placements located underground. The roots can either puncture or displace the pipes, causing disruption of the line. This is not just observed in sewer lines, as fresh water lines can get damaged by roots too.
- Misaligned pipe connections – Misalignment in parts of the sewer line can also cause damage. These portions can either be a source of leaks or they can become sites where line fractures are created. Misalignment can be caused by natural phenomena such as earthquakes or by substandard line construction.
- Improper drainage use – Arguably the most common cause of sewer line damage is the improper use of drains. Wrong disposal of wastes and garbage is the most common cause of clogged sewage lines that necessitate repair or replacement. These wastes can originate from any sink, toilet, or drain within the building.
