Everything You Need to Know About Sewer Line Repairs
There are over 800,000 miles of sewer lines running all throughout the country. These lines help homeowners to go about their daily lives without thinking about where their water is coming from (or going to).
However, sewer lines, like anything else, don’t stay in perfect condition. Over time, normal wear and tear cause sewer lines to break down, leading to burst pipes and other issues.
To be as prepared as possible, here is everything you need to know about sewer line repairs.
Signs You Need Sewer Line Repairs
There are many warning signs you might spot when you need sewer line repairs. As these signs arise, it’s important that you don’t delay in calling a plumber, as minor issues can lead to major damage if they aren’t addressed promptly.
Here are some signs you may need sewer line repair:
- Pipe bursts
- Leaking pipes
- Cracked or offset pipes
- Visible corrosion
- Leaky pipe connections
- Sediment or grease blockage and build-up
- Tree roots growing into the sewer line
If you notice any of the above signs, you’ll want to have a professional plumber come out to inspect your sewer lines. Small repairs are often possible as long as the pipes still maintain their integrity.
The Sewer Line Repair Process
You’ll need a professional plumber to determine whether your sewer lines can be repaired. If the pipe has lost its structural integrity or if there is major damage, the pipe may need to be replaced.
An experienced plumber can often perform repairs using a trenchless method. This process exposes the sewer line without digging disruptive trenches.
Another popular repair method is pipelining. With this approach, a plumber will insert a flexible tube containing epoxy resin into the pipe. They can then use the resin to repair existing cracks. As long as the sewer line maintains its integrity, this can be a quick and easy way to make repairs.
