Every pipe in your home connects to your sewer line. If you’re like most homeowners, you don’t give much thought to your sewer lines, but they are one of the most important features in your home. Sewer line leaks could ruin your lawn, jeopardize your health, or even permanently
damage your home’s structure.
If you're experiencing any of these issues with your plumbing system, there's a good chance you have problems with your sewer line.
Tree Roots: Even though tree roots are considered healthy for the soil, tree roots entering your sewer line can cause major damage to pipes. Tree roots tend to grow into rough shapes that invade the inside of your sewer lines causing clogs and slow drains that can back up sewage into your home.
Sluggish Drains: You may notice a slight delay as the water goes down the drain. However, slow drains occurring in multiple areas can indicate a blockage somewhere in the main sewer line.
Unpleasant Odors: A healthy sewer should be airtight apart from vent stacks. Smelling sewage odor when you step outside is caused by sewer gases under the soil, suggesting a crack or clog in your sewer line.
Damp Patches of Grass/Pooling Water: Consistently wet areas or water pooling is caused by a leak in your sewer line that rises to the top of the soil.
Gurgling sound: The occasional gurgling sound coming from your plumbing is common. Constant gurgling indicates a damaged or blocked pipe where water cannot drain properly releasing air pockets.
Insects, bugs, and animals are attracted to the smell of sewage.
