You tap down the flusher, lift up the sink handle, and turn the shower knob every day in your home. Instinctively, we know that the water that comes out must go right down. It isn’t until you see the backflow of water creeping back up to your sight that things start to get worrisome. Even more so, getting your sewer drain line cleared out is simply not cutting it.
At this point, the evidence is clear that this goes beyond just a stoppage in your sewer drain and may require a replacement whether it be the entire sewer line or just a section.
Luckily, in our beloved town of Austin, TX, you have the best team with the expertise to tackle these kinds of replacements…. Radiant Plumbing & Air Conditioning!
There is an aura of unpredictability when it comes to damaged sewer lines. From natural occurrences to continuous wear and tear, any of these could be the culprit that leads to future sewer replacement. Some common causes are:
Tree Roots – As tree roots grow, they search for water sources like your sewer line. If they attach to your sewer line, they will grow into your pipe, causing a break in the line.
Temperature – Sudden rises in temperature can cause the ground to shift, which may result in your sewer line becoming disconnected.
Old Pipelines – After years of wear and tear, sewer lines need to be replaced so that your homes sewage system can run smoothly.
Sagging lines – Soil conditions play a part in the sagging of sewer lines. Once a portion of the line starts to sag, it will collect paper and waste ultimately causing build-up.
Debris – Using non-flushable items in your toilet can result in major sewer drain issues.
Grease – Pouring grease and other fats down your drain will cause problems once the grease solidifies. Ultimately, it will get stuck to your pipes, causing a clog in the line.
It’s always important to know how your sewer line can get damaged, but the ‘how’ may not prove to be noticeable indicators. That’s why it’s important to keep an eye out for these symptoms that can appear in plain sight through daily use of your home’s amenities:
Persistent Sewer Back-Ups
Gurgling Noises in Your Toilet
Toilet Doesn’t Empty Properly When You Flush
Wet Sinkhole in the Yard
Wet Patches of Ground on Your Lawn
Inconsistent Water Pressure When You Flush
