4 Sewer Problems That All Homeowners Need To Understand

Having an issue with your home’s sewer line is never a pleasant situation. Not only is there the potential for a significant mess and contamination in your home, but it also disrupts every aspect of your home life. However, when you understand what is causing the issue and even a little bit about how it can be fixed, the process does not seem as overwhelming. Below are the four more common sewer line problems that you might experience and a bit about how a pro from Metroplex Leak & Line will repair the issue.

  • Tree Root Invasion- Tree root invasions are when the vigorously growing roots of a nearby tree get inside a sewer line and create a blockage. Tree roots are always seeking water, and when there is even a tiny crack in a sewer pipe, the roots will discover it and grow into it. The roots are soon growing exponentially faster due to the unending supply of water and human waste that functions like fertilizer. Over time the roots can block the pipe or even shatter it, causing raw sewage to flood into your yard or even back up into your home.
  • Damaged Sewer Pipes- Sewer pipes can become damaged in several ways. They could become crushed by tree roots, cracked by shifting soil, or by the freeze and thaw of the ground around them. And eventually, all pipes begin to wear out, crack and disintegrate. When this happens, you might notice a moist and stinky area in your yard, toilets not flushing correctly, or sewage backing up into tubs or showers. A call to (214) 388-4525 is the best way to deal with this trouble. One of our Metroplex Leak & Line sewer line specialists will examine the inside of your home’s sewer line with a small camera to determine the location and amount of damage. Then he or she will provide you with a price quote to repair the damage.
  • Clogged Sewer Lines- It is pretty easy to recognize a clogged sewer line. When your toilets are not flushing correctly, and the water is standing in your tub or shower, it is safe to say that you have a clogged sewer line. There could also be a very unpleasant smell coming from the drains in your tubs and showers. The only guaranteed solution to a clogged sewer line is a professional drain cleaning from the pros at Metroplex Leak & Line. Our team uses a special piece of equipment that removes even the most stubborn clogs using nothing but a high-pressure jet of pure water. This method is safe for your pipes, the environment, and cleans every inch of your sewer lines to prevent future clogs and issues.
  • Old Age- Everything wears out, including your home’s sewer lines. When the pipes reach the end of their life expectancy, they become brittle and can break or crack very easily. And once that happens, it is only a matter of time until the pipe is clogged with dirt, debris, and tree roots. If you are experiencing frequent sewer line clogs or discover several moist, smelly areas in your yard, it is likely due to old sewer pipes that are riddled with cracks and leaks. The most cost-effective solution for old sewer pipes is a replacement. Call (214) 388-4525 to learn about all of the new options for trenchless sewer line replacement and repair. These processes are much less destructive than trenching in new sewer lines. And once replaced with a new epoxy sealed liner, your sewer lines will function without issues for decades.

There are many issues around your home that can be corrected on your own if you enjoy do-it-yourself projects. But sewer line repair and replacement are not those kinds of projects. Your home depends on that one pipe to carry all of the dirty water and sewage from your home to the city sewer system. And when that pipe is not functioning correctly, there is going to be a colossal mess somewhere.

At the first sign of a sewer line leak in your yard or sewage backup in your home, call (214) 388-4525 to schedule emergency sewer line service.
