Common Sewer Problems We Fix
Sewer lines are created from durable materials and are intended to last for many years. However, there are a number of problems that can occur, both gradually and suddenly. The way sewer lines are installed originally may also have an impact on how long they last and if they are susceptible to problems. Luckily, our professional plumbers are trained in the most advanced techniques and use the latest equipment to repair your sewer line problems and minimize damage.
We can help repair the following issues with your sewer lines:
- Damaged, collapsed, or cracked sewer pipes
- Rusting or corrosion
- The build-up of hair, grease, and other waste
- Blockages or clogs
- Freezing or shifting ground
- Faulty pipes
- Poorly installed pipes
- Root damage
- Leaks in the joints
Common Causes of Sewer Line Damage
Your home's sewer line runs under your home and through your yard. While this is a generally safe place, there are still a number of hazards that could cause damage to your pipes.
Some of the most common causes of sewer line damage include:
- Shifting ground: Earthquakes, tremors, major construction in your area, and more can cause the ground around your home to shift, potentially causing the sewer line to break, bend, or detach.
- Rust: Most sewer lines are made from metal, which will build up rust over time. As it corrodes, it becomes more likely to crack or rupture, especially in older homes.
- Tree roots: Tree roots growing into your pipes is the most common cause of sewer line damage. Their growth causes more than enough force to rupture pipes and create a serious blockage.
