Your sewer lines play an essential role in transporting wastewater or sewage from your property through the sewer system for treatment or disposal. Over time, sewer lines may require repairs to fix different types of problems, including leaks, clogs, cracks, low water pressure, and more.
Trenchless sewer line repair is a minimally-invasive method of repairing sewer lines without digging a trench through your yard. This method is a cost-effective alternative to traditional sewer line repair methods.
There are three major trenchless sewer line repair methods. They include:
Let’s look at the signs that indicate you need sewer line repair as soon as possible.
Sewer lines are designed to be airtight to prevent sewer odors from escaping the pipes. An intact sewer line should seal sewer smells within the pipeline. If you notice unpleasant smells or bad odors around your property, especially around the drains, get in touch with a reliable plumber for trenchless sewer line repair.
A good sign of a sewer line leak is lush green patches that seem to grow faster than the surrounding lawn. Those patches may be absorbing leaking sewage which acts as fertilizer. While a super green lawn may seem like a good thing, patches of grass that are unusually lush point to a leaking sewer line.
If your toilet, bathtub, sinks, and floor drains start to back up with raw sewage or clear wastewater, it is a sign that you have some sort of sewer line problem. Sewage backup should be addressed immediately to prevent unsanitary conditions in your home.
Have you noticed puddles or soft spots on your lawn even though it hasn’t rained? This is a telltale sign that a sewer pipe has broken underground. If the puddles or soft spots emit a foul odor, there’s a good chance a sewer line is leaking underneath.
Whenever your drains fail to empty or take a long time to drain, you could be dealing with a blockage that will eventually lead to a clog. If you experience slow drainage in multiple drains, it is likely that you’re dealing with a bigger problem.
While it’s not uncommon to hear the sound of flowing wastewater as it rushes through the pipes, a loud gurgling sound when your toilet flushes or your bathtub drains is a sign of sewer line trouble. A loud and unnatural bubbling or gurgling sound indicates that wastewater is struggling to make its way down the sewer lines due to some sort of obstruction.
Gurgling noise from your drains is normally followed by sewage backup, so it’s best to act quickly to save your property from sewage waste damage.
