Sewer line breaks or clogs are one of the most unsettling issues a homeowner will ever face. If you notice signs that there might be something amiss with your sewer line, it’s important to look into the problem immediately before it gets worse. Neerings Plumbing offers top quality services for sewer repair across the SLC metro, including Orem and Park City. Here are some indications to watch out for:
You can smell wastewater in your yard
Sewage stench is coming from a drain in the house
Wastewater from the dishwasher backs up into the sink
Sewage travels up the bathtub drain
Sinks and bathtubs empty more slowly than usual
The Most Common Problems with Sewer Lines & Blockage
Among the most frequent causes of sewer main blockage is root overgrowth. Tree roots can get into pipes, gradually putting pressure on pipes and then growing their way into seams. If even roots can make their way between joints, they can create a net that collects
material until the movement comes to a complete stop. They can then continue to grow, gradually causing breaks in the main. There are not many experiences that are more unpleasant than having a sewer line break on your lawn.
Less-frequent sewer-main crises that crop up:
The buildup of oil, grease, or hair
Poorly aligned pipes
Backups caused by large items
Neerings Can Handle Any Household Sewer Problem in SLC
A few last things to consider when you are dealing with your sewer line problems:
Check whether your home insurance pays for sewer main line installations. Usually, the damage has to be proven to be an accident, and sudden (as opposed to gradual wear on your sewer line). Take photos as you or your plumber uncover the problem so that you have evidence to provide to your insurance agent.
While you’re having work done, consider installing a “trenchless” sewer line if you don’t have one already. This innovative technology enables plumbers to take out an internal lining from your sewer pipe for repair, then slide it back into the line without destroying fencing or lawns.
