Sewer Line Replacement in Austin

Roots a Common Reason For Line Replacement

Sewer lines have a mind of their own and will sometimes develop problems. While it’s easy for these complications to occur, determining the cause of these problems is not so simple. And, knowing whether or not those issues will lead to replacement can also be difficult to understand.

As a homeowner, of course it’s always better to know more so you can be better informed when making decisions for your home. That’s why we’ve compiled the following list for you.

Top 5 Causes for Sewer Replacement

  1. Tree roots: Unfortunately, this is one we see pretty often. Tree roots can infiltrate the line even through the smallest break, feed on the nutrients and water in the line, and grow to the point of blockage. Roots cannot be cleared with a cable and usually lead to a line replacement.
  2. Compromised pipes: Shifting soil and ground settling are the typical causes of broken, cracked, or collapsed piping.
  3. Leaking pipes: Water and sewage can escape the line if you have a leak and surely you don’t want you family exposed to any of that. A leak typically means a section of the pipe has broken and will need to be repaired or – depending on how severe – replaced.
  4. Corroded or rusted pipes: This can happen as the pipes age and at that point replacement is your best option.
  5. Bellied pipes: A bellied pipe is when a section of a pipe has sunk due to ground or soil conditions. This, then, will create a low spot in the line where different waste collect and create backups. You will continue to experience blockages until the line is replaced.
