Before Replacing Your Sewer Lines
A home’s plumbing system has two sides that work together to ensure you have clean water for use as well as safe and sanitary removal and disposal of waste and wastewater. The supply plumbing system carries potable water into your home for use, while the drainage system carries waste away from the home. Each of these plumbing systems have an independent line connecting to outside systems- the supply system is connected to municipal water lines or your private well, while the sewer lines connect to a municipal sewer or your private septic tank.
When there’s a blockage or damage to any part of the sewer line, it can cause problems back inside the home. If you’ve noticed a gurgling sound in your bathroom or kitchen drain, water backing up, or water pooling in your basement, crawlspace, or lawn, there might be an issue with how your main drain line connects to the outside sewer line or an issue with the sewer pipe itself.
We recommend an initial video inspection to identify the source of the problem and determine whether it will be a recurring issue. If a sewer line repair can’t stop the problem from reoccurring, sewer pipe replacement is the preferred solution. Once we complete a full inspection of your sewer pipe, we address the issue and present you with your options, including both trenchless sewer and traditional sewer line replacement.
Do You Need Sewer Replacement?
A broken or unserviceable sewer line displays many of the same signs as a mere clog, which makes it difficult for a homeowner to know when line replacement is necessary versus sewer line repair. Put simply, sewer line replacement becomes important any time your sewer pipes have become compromised indefinitely. Keep an eye out for these signs that share your sewer line might be permanently damaged:
- Pooling water in the yard. Large amounts of water that have no clear source are a sure sign of a damaged sewer pipe. These come as a result of your pipe no longer being capable of holding waste and water properly. This water then ends up seeping into the soil near the pipe.
- Strong smell of sewer or foul odors. The smell of sewage is very strong when your main line has been damaged and is near unmistakable. These odors in the home are not only unpleasant, but potentially dangerous to occupants when exposed.
- Slow or poorly draining fixtures. Tubs, toilets, and sinks that refuse to drain or drain very slowly are often your first sign that something has gone wrong with a sewer pipe.
If you notice any of these, it’s best to contact a plumbing professional right away. Replacing sewage pipes is a big job, but it doesn’t have to pose a big inconvenience to your family. Certain replacements necessitate the need to trench the yard and dig into the soil to lay new pipe, but many replacements can be performed using trenchless sewer line replacement methods! Trenchless sewer replacement removes old pipes while the new pipe is installed, and there is no need to dig up your yard and destroy your landscaping!
Common Causes of Sewer Line Damage
Several issues contribute to drain problems, eventually resulting in the need for sewer replacement:
- Tree roots – Tree roots always look for the closest source of water, which in most cases happens to be your sewer line.
- Spike in temperature – When temperatures rise, the ground can shift which causes a rupture in the line.
- Blockages – Grease and sludge buildup, corrosion, and flushing inappropriate items all contribute to blocked pipes.
- Deteriorating pipes – Cast iron, clay, and PVC plastic pipes are all prone to break down over time. Older pipes already causing problems should be replaced as soon as possible.
Whether caused by one of the above issues or just general wear and tear, an aging sewer line must be replaced at some point. Be sure to work with a plumbing company boasting a track record of successful sewer installations.
Sewer Replacement Options for Indianapolis Homeowners
Traditional or Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement?
Depending on where you live as well as the condition and configuration of your pipes, trenchless sewer line replacement might be your smartest and easiest option. Our plumbing experts visit your home, inspect the issues, assess your property, and come up with the best option available to get the problem fixed with as little disturbance to your household and property.
Trenchless sewer repair is a less invasive option for repairing common sewer line problems versus traditional sewer repair. With traditional sewer repair, there is digging and excavation to remove broken or cracked pipes and replace them. This trenching often destroys landscaping, driveways, and other structures. Traditional sewer repair creates debris and introduces contaminated waste into landfills when the removed materials are sent for disposal.
Trenchless sewer repair accomplishes what can be done traditionally without the need to dig or destroy! This method is also highly useful for the repair of pipes located underneath existing structures, preventing any disturbance to the home.
Trenchless pipe replacement is greener than traditional sewer repair methods since it reuses pipe that is already in the ground instead of creating waste that has to be carried away. Trenchless pipe lining uses the existing pipe as a “host” for the structural liner which prevents the disruption of any soil that may be contaminated by the raw sewage that has leaked through the cracks and voids of the old pipe. Trenchless pipe bursting threads new pipe through the old one.
