Recognizing A Broken Sewer Line
There are a few indicators that your sewer line is having some issues. If this is happening at your home, you could be hearing strange noises coming out of your toilet. It will likely make a gurgling sound. You may also see water coming up into your sink or a wet spot outside above the sewer line.
A break in a sewer line can be caused by old pipes that are rotting, tree roots growing into the pipes, clogs in your pipes, and frozen sewer lines. There is no sure way to guarantee that your sewer line won’t break because many of the reasons they break are from natural causes. However, regularly maintaining your entire plumbing system, including the sewer line, will make a nasty surprise much less likely. This would include having your sewer line inspected.
Sewer Line Inspections
Every part of your home should be well taken care of. This includes the parts you don’t see — like your sewer line. If you are like most people, you don’t know much about it. Don’t worry. That’s what we are here for!
A sewer inspection is done with a camera that is attached to a snake line. This enables us to examine the state of the sewer and search for any cracks, clogs, or other potential problems.
A sewer inspection is definitely something that should be done before you purchase a home. It should be part of an inspection of your entire plumbing system before making an investment in a new home. If you have had issues with your sewer in the past, it is also a good idea to have it checked periodically. Having these inspections done is important because these problems are not always visible and obvious. It may reveal unknown issues before they turn into major problems.
How A Broken Sewer Line Affects Your Home
A problem with sewage backing up can create some major problems for you and your home. Your basement or toilets could become full of backed-up sewage. In this situation, the water that has backed up is nasty sewage water so it will be very unhygienic. The water will cause some big problems with your walls and floors.
The sewage is probably coming from your sewer line. Although there are some cases where it can be coming from somewhere else — like from the city that you live in. Wherever it is coming from, this is a very unhealthy situation that needs to be addressed immediately.
The good news is that we can locate the source of the problem and offer you an efficient solution to get it fixed.
How Long Will A Sewer Line Last?
The lifespan of a sewer line depends on what the pipes are made from. Older sewer lines, prior to 1980, are probably clay pipes. Newer sewer lines, after 1980, should be made from PVC pipe. Clay sewer pipes will typically last for 50-60 years. PVC pipe is designed to last even longer. Perhaps up to 100 years. Remember that these are estimates and that all types of pipe will wear out at some point.
