Signs That It’s Time to Have the Sewer Line Replaced
If you allow drainage issues to persist in the home you could very well have a much larger and much more expensive problem on your hands. The following signs should be monitored closely and are indicators that it’s time to call a plumber in order to avoid a plumbing disaster.
Your Home’s Age
How old is your home? The age of your home could be a big indicator of whether or not it’s time to replace the entire sewer line of the home. For example, if your home was built 50 or more years ago, you will likely want to look into the replacement of the sewer line. There’s also the possibility that the age of the sewer line does not match the age of the house. You likely won’t know this if you were not the original owner of the home.
Persistent, Continued Problems
Any persistent or continued problem with your home’s plumbing or sewer line should be addressed immediately. Don’t let this issues linger. The longer they go untreated, the worse the condition can turn into, leading to costly repairs for more than just your plumbing or sewer line. An untreated issue can cause a flood of sewage and water into your home, ruining flooring, drywall, furniture and precious belongings.
Not many homeowners realize how much of a problem tree roots cause with a sewer line or the plumbing of a home until it’s too late. A tree root can crack a sewer line and continue to push through it, causing a partial or complete block of the line. Take a look at your property. How many trees are present? How many trees do you have in the front yard, where the sewer line is likely located? A tree root will extend much further than what the naked eye can see.
Malfunctioning Water Fixtures
Have the water fixtures in your home malfunctioned of late? This is quite possibly the biggest sign that you have a problem with the sewer line. Do you notice a pool of water in the shower, tub, or sink long after the water has stopped running? This is a sign that the water is not draining properly. It could be due to a clog in the drain or a clog somewhere along the sewer line of the home. If you’ve noticed water coming up through the drain of the shower or tub when you flush the toilet, you definitely have trouble with the sewer line and should call a plumber immediately.
Changes in the Yard
Are there areas of your yard that are wet, or have a pool of water, and it hasn’t rained in days? Is there an indent in the yard? These are two common signs that the sewer line is leaking somewhere along its path under your yard.
Do weird sounds make an appearance when the plumbing is used in the home? The sounds that most commonly signal trouble with the sewer line are gurgling and bubbling. Another common sign is the presence of bubbles in the water of the toilet when you flush it. If you notice any of these signs it’s time to call a licensed and trusted plumber in Waldorf.
The most common causes of clogs in the home are paper products being flushed down the toilet or other items making into the plumbing that shouldn’t be there. If paper products, toys, or other items haven’t been flushed down the drain and there are persistent clogs, you have a problem with the sewer line of your home.
