Sewer Line Repair, Installation & Replacement in Noblesville
Your average plumbing system, whether it’s residential or commercial, is made up of many appliances — including showers, toilets, sinks, washing machines, dishwashers, and more. At the start of the draining process, each of these appliances is connected to smaller drain pipes which can drain wastewater away from your Noblesville home.
Eventually, all of these small, individual drain pipes are going to take wastewater to the same point; your property’s sewer line. The main sewer line is necessary to rid your property of wastewater and sewage produced by any of the major appliances you rely upon.
Due to the importance of the sewer line, problems with the line can be an especially large hassle. Unfortunately, issues with your sewer line can occur. Sewer line damage can then lead to clogs and leaks, which could even result in sewage being released into your home. In order to intervene before serious property damage occurs, make sure to contact the plumbers at Plumb Doctor.
Top Signs That Your Sewer Line Is Damaged
It is a good idea to keep a lookout for signs of sewer line damage so that early intervention will be possible. Still, some sewer line problems develop out of the blue and could have been impossible to foresee. Disasters like burst pipes, construction accidents, and sewage backups can all occur suddenly, leading to a plumbing emergency.
In other instances, however, sewer line damage can start out as a minor problem. That minor issue will often worsen over time if you don’t take action and have it repaired by a plumber. Corrosion, cracks that develop and spread over time, tree root intrusions, and more can all lead to sewer line problems. In these scenarios, a catastrophic backup isn’t going to be immediate. This outcome can even be avoided, if intervention occurs.
Unsure what to look for when determining whether or not you’re experiencing sewer line problems? Here are some of the top signs to watch for:
- Foul-smelling water has begun to pool on your lawn. This could be the result of a crack or leak in your sewer line.
- Your basement keeps flooding. If there is a backup in your sewer line, floor drains could push gray water (or even sewage) into your home.
- Several drains are clogged at the same time — especially if these clogs are occurring on the lower level of your property.
- Backups that only seem to grow worse whenever you run water into other appliances within your home.
Why Your Sewage Line May Be Experiencing Problems
Sewer lines can experience issues for a wide array of reasons. If you live in an older home, for example, there’s a chance that the pipes have never been replaced. Over time, even the highest quality pipes can wear down, corrode, or develop cracks.
This doesn’t mean that newer homes are immune to sewer line problems — it’s rarer than in older homes, but it can still occur. For instance, if trees were planted too close to the sewage line, the roots may be attracted to the water within the pipes. These roots can then cause damage.
