Common Reasons a Sewer Line Needs Replacement

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.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • When Does My Drain Need to Be Cleaned?
    A:

    If you notice your drains aren’t draining quickly, particles are coming back up, gurgling noises are present, or odors are getting stronger, it’s time to have your drains checked.

  • How Often Should I Clean My Drains?
    A:

    If your yard has large trees that could pose a hazard to your sewer system, or if your pipes have a history of causing problems, it’s best to schedule routine maintenance. Talk to the team at John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air to receive a tailored maintenance plan for your home.

    For small kitchen, bathroom, or home clogs, routine maintenance isn’t necessary. However, you should call our professionals at the first sign of trouble so we catch small problems before they turn into expensive repairs.

  • How Do I Clean a Clogged Drain?
    A:

    The best thing to do is call in a professional. We have the equipment and expertise to efficiently, safely, and affordably clear drains and pipes. We can analyze the situation and quickly solve the problem whether it requires a specific plunger, drain snake, or hydro-jetting equipment.

  • How Much Does it Cost to Replace a Sewer Line?
    A:

    Sewer installation costs will vary from project to project depending on a number of factors. Once a full evaluation and camera inspection is performed, our specialists will provide multiple options to suit our customers needs, timeline, and budget.

  • Reasons to have Sewer Line Installed
    A:

    The most compelling reason to install a new sewer line is when the pipe is damaged beyond repair. However, if after a video camera inspection, the line is revealed to be nearing the end of its life, sometimes preemptive replacement is a good idea. It could save on costs, emergency overflows, as well as provide homeowners’ with peace of mind that they will not have problems in the future.
