As a homeowner, the section of sewer line leading from your home to the main line is your responsibility, which is something many people are not aware of. So, any problems with that portion of the sewer line are yours to handle.
Unfortunately, many issues can arise, including blockages, clogs, mud buildup, root infiltration, and more. If you wait too long to resolve the problem, it can evolve to the point where you have to replace the whole sewer line.
It is far more cost-effective to call us at Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling as soon as you notice the smallest sign of a problem so we can conduct a sewer line repair. Of course, sometimes there is no other option but to conduct a sewer line replacement, in which case our certified technicians have the experience and expertise to do it quickly and efficiently.
Signs That You Might Need Sewer Line Repair
Knowing the signs of a problematic sewer line is essential to helping you avoid more costly repairs or a full sewer line replacement.
For example, if you are experiencing a strong smell of sewage in and near your home, there is a chance the sewer line could have a crack. Sewer lines are supposed to be sealed, so any odor is an indication there is a problem somewhere allowing sewage gases to escape.
Also, if you notice areas in your yard where everything looks far healthier and greener, you might have sewage escaping. Sewage is basically fertilizer for plants so if you have patches that are far more “alive” than the rest of your yard, there is a good chance that you have a problem.
If your lawn or paving seems to have started dipping oddly, you might have a sewer-like leakage. A sewer line that is constantly spewing water and waste will eventually dissipate the soil, leading to dips and even sinkholes. In fact, if you do not take care of the problem quickly, it can even cause problems with your home’s foundation.
Finally, if you see septic wastewater building up in your yard, this is a clear indicator that you have a problem with your sewer line, whether it be a problematic septic tank, a clogged drain, or a cracked line.
