Signs of a Sewer Line Problem
Sewer line issues are most common in homes that are 25 years old or older. Sewer pipes can become corroded, rusty, and deteriorate over time. In addition to age, damage can be caused by the ground shifting, freezing and thawing cycles, improper installation, and tree roots growing into the line. While the sewer line is under ground, there are some signs that there may be a problem with the sewer pipe.
Your sewer line could be broken if you have:
- Clogs in multiple drains
- Slow drains
- Backups in more than one drain
- Soggy spots on the lawn
- Sewer gas odors
- Mold or mildew
- Cracks in the slab or walls
- A rodent or insect problem
Sewer odors or sewage backing up into your home is unhealthy, unpleasant, and unsanitary. It is important to recognize the early warning signs of a potential problem. When you notice a problem early, we can provide an accurate evaluation and prompt sewer line replacement in Lancaster before your home ever suffers damage.
Professional Sewer Line Inspections
The main sewer line runs under the ground from the house to the street where it connects to the municipal sewer system. The homeowner is responsible for maintaining the pipe from the point where it crosses your property line until it reaches your house. If there is a problem with that section of the line, the homeowner must fix it. In the past, detecting a sewer line problem required digging up the entire line from the house to the street. Excessive digging is no longer needed with the development of sewer video cameras.
Sewer cameras are small video cameras that can fit down a drain and run through the drainpipes and into your sewer line. Our technicians can perform a video camera inspection of the sewer line to assess its condition and locate damage to the line. This allows us to evaluate problems without disturbing your lawn or landscape beds.
