Issues That May Warrant Sewer Line Repair or Replacement
A number of issues can arise with a sewer line, making it necessary to repair or replace it. Several of these potential problems follow:
- Corroded Pipe: The pipe has worn through, broken or caved in due to deterioration caused by corrosion. This usually causes the line to collapse impeding flow.
- Blocked Pipe: A blockage caused by a buildup of grease or other material or by a foreign object that has somehow entered the pipe that is restricting or totally blocking flow.
- Damaged Pipe: Sewer pipes can sometimes break, collapse, crack, or shift in such a way that they are no longer functional.
- Sunken, or Bellied, Pipe: This occurs when one pipe section sinks to a lower level than the rest of the pipe creating a depressed area where waste material builds up.
- Substandard Pipe: If a sewer line is made of low-grade material, this can cause deterioration, damage or corrosion to the line.
- Leaky Pipe Joints: When the seals between pipe sections lose their integrity, they can no longer prevent the water from leaking out and seeping into the area immediately around the pipe.
- Tree Roots Invading the Line: When roots from trees or shrubs become embedded in the pipe, they can cause damage or – if they don’t – they can still make cleaning the sewer line impossible.
