What Are the Most Common Reasons You Need Sewer Line Repairs?
If you are a homeowner, there’s a good chance you feel as though there is always something that needs to be fixed. The problem is that even though you can’t see it, sometimes that thing is your sewer line.
It’s important to pay close attention and be proactive when it comes to your sewer system, since even a small leak can result in major damage. The good news is that when there are issues in your sewer line, the culprit is usually one of three things—and High 5 Plumbing knows how to take care of all of them. Remember, it is important to call an experienced plumber at the first sign of a sewer line problem, unless you want to have to spend a ton of money cleaning up a sewage spill later on.
The three most common reasons you would be likely to need sewer line repairs include:
- Root Intrusion: Roots from trees or shrubs on your property may grow into your sewer lines because they are attracted to the excess moisture the lines are full of. Root intrusion takes hardly any time at all to occur, so while you might think you don’t have anything to worry about in the spring, you could be experiencing blockages, leaks, and back-ups by the time fall rolls around. Watch out for common signs of root intrusion, such as lush, wet spots in your yard, sewage smells around your property, and uptick in pest presence, as well as slow drains, and make sure to call High 5 Plumbing Plumbing to see if you need a sewer line repair if these signs appear.
- Ground Shifting: When construction occurs near your home, the ground can shift. This may also occur following a natural disaster, such as an earthquake. When this happens, your home’s foundation may be affected, and your sewer line can become dislodged, leading to a leak. Call High 5 Plumbing if you suspect this is happening, since in a worst case scenario, this could lead to your entire sewer system caving in.
- Blockages: The third most common sewer problem is any kind of blockage. Blockages occur when sediment builds up over time, or improper materials are disposed of in your sewer system (paper towels, tissues, pads, “flushable” wipes; basically anything other than good old fashioned TP.) Ultimately, if the clog is big enough, your sewer line will become backed up, and wastewater could come bubbling out of your drains, bathtub, or toilet— which is the last thing you want inside your home
