Common Causes of Sewer Line Damage
There are many different causes of sewer line damage. Here’s some of the reasons your sewer line is damaged.
1. Tree Roots
Corroded pipes are not an uncommon occurrence, despite the fact that they’re galvanized and built to last. A build-up of calcium or magnesium from regular wear can cause corrosion on a pipe’s interior — which is problematic because it leaves them vulnerable to leaks and cracks.
2. Clogged Pipes Due to Debris and Foreign Objects
Clogged Pipes Due to Debris and Foreign Objects: Don’t flush anything other than human waste or toilet paper down the pipes in your home. You’ll not only save on cleaning costs, you will also avoid clogging them up with items that can cause serious damage if they are unable to disintegrate like wrappers and paper towels from kitchens. In addition, cooking oil is a common culprit for kitchen-related blockages – be sure not to pour it into the sink!
3. Extreme Temperatures
Extreme Temperatures can cause pipes to burst. During cold weather, the expanding ice in a sewer pipe will eventually cause it to rupture and leak water all over the place. Hot temperatures are also a risk for bursting sewer pipes as they make metal expand rapidly without giving it enough time or space for expansion- which leads heat induced pressure cracks from forming at various points on your sewer piping system and plumbing fixtures.
Signs of Sewer Line Damage
A damaged sewer system is a serious problem that can cause extensive damage to your home or office building. You should be aware of the signs so you can stop any potential problems before they start. If you do notice the following signs, contact us immediately at (201) 447-0721 or fill out our service form. It is also important to know that an old sewer line might have cracks in it, which means there could also be leaks or overflows inside your house too if left untreated. Call our team at BRUTE Contracting Inc. today at (201) 447-0721 for prompt assistance with sewer line leak detection services.
1. Foul-Smelling or Flooded Yard
When a yard floods, it is often an indication that there’s been a break in the sewer pipe. Sewer lines can be buried anywhere between two and six feet below ground with colder climates calling for deeper pipes but this doesn’t mean they’re necessarily out of reach to flooding from rain water or sewage spills coming up through cracks in your concrete slab; if you don’t have gutters installed on your roof, then both are possible. Normally when we see damage like this, our first inclination would be to look at what might’ve happened underfoot–you may notice puddles collecting where nothing has traditionally collected before after heavy rainfall (a sure sign). When flooded yards occur during periods of heavy rains or as consequences of sewage leaks.
2. Difficulties with Draining
If your toilets are making strange gurgling sounds, there could be a severe blockage in the sewage line. When air is pushed back up through pipes due to clogged drains in several areas of the home at once, you may have an obstruction further down that needs immediate attention from professional plumbers or plumbing companies with water extraction equipment. It’s best not to try and clear this type of blockage yourself because it will only worsen without their help!
3. Water Damage in the Home or Property
If you notice signs of mold spreading on your floors or walls, it could be a sign that there is water damage in the home. If this happens, call a plumbing service immediately to fix any possible leaks and prevent further issues from happening.
Sewer Line Repair Options
There are two options if your sewer line springs a leak or breaks. One is to dig around the pipe, and another option is trenchless repairs that require little digging. With this process, technicians enter the pipe with video cameras before recommending what should be repaired first.
1. Sewer Pipe Lining – Sewer Pipe Relining is a highly effective way to repair cracks in sewage pipes. The epoxy-coated inflatable tube can be inserted into your sewer line, then inflated with air while the surrounding resin cures and hardens. Once it’s cured, you remove the pipe and fix any other leaks that might have caused this one!
2. Sewer Pipe Bursting – When an old sewer line is too damaged to use the sewer pipe lining technique, a more invasive trenchless repair can be performed. Our technicians will feed a cone-shaped bit through your existing line and destroy it while immediately replacing your current sewer line with a new sewer line.
Protecting Your Sewer Lines
1. Receive sewer line inspections annually – Hire BRUTE Contracting Inc. to perform sewer line inspections once a year. We will inspect your sewer lines for any signs of damage, corrosion, or blockages, and provide you with a detailed report and recommendations.
2. Properly using your sewage system – It is important to only dispose human waste and toilet paper into your sewer lines. Disposing any other materials into your sewer lines can cause blockages.
3. Remove nearby trees that are damaging your sewer line – If a tree is causing sewer line issues, you should remove the tree before your sewer line problems become worse.
Sewer Line Repair FAQ
1. Am I responsible for damage to my sewer line if it is located in the street?
In most cases, yes. Very few towns service the homeowners sewer line laterals in the street.
2. Is excavation always required when trying to repair a sewer line?
This depends on what type of problem you are experiencing. For example, a break/collapse or “belly” in the pipe would almost always require an excavation. Obstructions such as tree roots, pipe scale build-up, or harden sediment can normally be hydro jetted clean. A thorough camera inspection will ensure a proper diagnosis.
3. If I have a leak on a lead service line, does the entire sewer line need replacement?
Yes, due to the health concerns associated with lead material.
4. Do you offer trenchless solutions for sewer line repairs?
Yes. In some cases, relining an existing sewer line is possible if the existing line can be thoroughly cleaned, is properly pitched, and can accept the new liner.
