Is My Sewer Line Damaged?

pipe-filled-with-rootsA lot of homeowners don’t really think too much about the many different pipes and components that make up their residential plumbing systems. When everything is working right, after all, there is not really much need to devote attention to such items. However, when something goes wrong with the plumbing system, it is much more obvious just how important it is that every component in the system is working properly. If you have trouble with your sewer line in Green Valley, AZ, you’ll want to have it resolved as soon as possible.

In order to have your sewer line repaired as promptly as possible, naturally, you will first need to learn to recognize the signs that there is something wrong to begin with. It can be tough to think about silver linings when dealing with such a problem on your property. That being said, it is fortunate that there are various warning signs to be aware of. You just need to know what it is that you are looking for.

Are the Drains in Your Home Moving Slowly?

If so, it could well mean that you have a problem deep within the sewer line. Yes, if just one drain in your home is backed up or draining slowly then you may have a shallow clog in that single drain. If all of the drains throughout your home are backed up, however, and if your toilet is also not flushing reliably, a blockage in the sewer line is likely. Give us a call right away so that we can assess the situation before even more serious problems develop.

Do You Have Damp Spots in Your Yard?

Do you have a septic tank? Does the ground surrounding that tank feel a bit soft? Are there wet spots around the area in which your sewer line is buried? Then a leaking sewer line is a strong possibility. Perhaps the sewer line has been packed full of tree roots and split, has corroded through completely or has collapsed due to shifting earth. Whatever the case, you need to have it repaired if possible, and maybe replaced entirely, as soon as you can.

The Odor

Perhaps the most obvious sign of trouble with one’s sewer line is also the symptom that you want to think about the least: the odor. Obviously, a damaged sewer line can result in the leaking of sewage into or around your property. When this happens, well–let’s just say that you don’t need professional training as a plumber to notice that something has gone wrong. A damaged sewer line, remember, is not just about inconvenience in the home. It can lead to serious problems in terms of hygiene and health, too.

The good news is that the professionals here at The Sunny Plumber are here to help. Not only can we replace and/or repair your sewer line as needed, but we also offer routine drain and sewer maintenance that can help to keep these pipes in the best working condition possible.
