Common Warning Signs of a Sewer Line in Need of Replacement

Corroded sewer pipe

When your sewer line needs to be replaced, you’ll know it. It’s very difficult not to notice the slow drainage of sinks and showers, gurgling toilet noises, and foul sulfur-like odor. Some other signs to watch for include: 

  • Unwanted pests visiting your yard 
  • Inconsistent water levels in the toilet bowl 
  • Soggy or sinking patches of grass 
  • Skyrocketing utility bills 
  • Mold and mildew

If you notice any of this starting to happen in your home, schedule a sewer line inspection as soon as possible.

Common Reasons a Sewer Line Needs ReplacementCracked sewer pipe

Kitchen and bathroom habits have a direct impact on the condition of your sewer line; make the wrong move and it could easily be broken. Other times, natural factors beyond your control, like wear and tear over time and tree root invasion, are the culprit. Here are some of the causes of sewer line failure that may necessitate a total replacement:

  • Age: Pipes that are simply old (several decades) and/or have not been maintained properly will most likely need full replacement rather than a repair. Having your sewer main inspected and serviced every two years means you get more life out of your existing system.
  • Corroded pipes: Corroded pipes are at risk of collapsing and cutting off the flow of sewage.
  • Flushing foreign objects: Only waste matter and toilet paper should be flushed down your toilet. If you flush anything else, debris can get stuck and cause a blockage that breaks the sewer line.
  • Putting grease down the sink: Many people mistakenly believe that if they rinse hot grease down the sink with hot water, it will wash away. In reality, the grease solidifies when it cools in the pipes and gets stuck, causing blockages and other issues.
  • Damage from roots, storms, and soil: Overgrown tree roots, storm damage, and an overabundance of soil around the sewer line can all contribute to sewer line problems. These factors can invade the pipes, prevent normal evaporation, and otherwise disrupt normal function. 

Risks of Not Replacing a Damage Sewer Line

Neglecting to replace a damaged sewer line can lead to a host of serious consequences that affect both property owners and the surrounding environment. Understanding these risks is essential for prompt action and effective mitigation strategies.

Here's a breakdown of the risks associated with not replacing a damaged sewer line:

  • Health Hazards: Untreated sewer line damage can result in sewage backups, leading to unsanitary conditions inside homes or buildings. This poses health risks due to exposure to harmful bacteria, viruses, and pathogens present in raw sewage.
  • Structural Damage: A damaged sewer line can compromise the structural integrity of buildings and infrastructure. Over time, leaks and blockages can lead to water damage, mold growth, and even foundation issues, necessitating costly repairs.
  • Environmental Contamination: Leaking sewage from damaged sewer lines can contaminate soil, groundwater, and surface water bodies. This pollution can harm local ecosystems, wildlife, and public health if not addressed promptly.
  • Decreased Property Value: Properties with unresolved sewer line issues may experience decreased market value and difficulty in resale. Potential buyers are often deterred by the prospect of dealing with sewer line repairs and the associated costs.
  • Legal and Regulatory Compliance: Property owners may face legal consequences and fines for failing to address sewage leaks or backups in a timely manner. Non-compliance with environmental regulations regarding wastewater management can result in penalties and legal liabilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's a Pre-Installation Evaluation? Does My New A/C Need One?
    In short, yes. A first step is conducting an energy audit to determine the energy load for your home. Calculating the load tells the experts at John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air how much heat your house gains throughout the day & what size air conditioner will work best to keep it cool.
