Sewer Line Definition

Your sewer line is one of the most important parts of your plumbing system. Sewer lines carry wastewater out of your house and are usually buried underground in your lawn. All the drains in your home usually end up in your main sewer line. This means that problems in your sewer line could cause damage to various sections of your entire house’s plumbing system.

Sewer Line Replacement

Consider replacing your sewer lines if it has been significantly damaged by tree roots. Roots from trees in your lawn can invade your sewer line and cause blockage and leaks. Sewer lines that are totally damaged should also be replaced. Gradual erosion and soil movement can cause your sewer line to break and collapse. This is likely to happen in an area like Los Alamitos that is prone to tremors and earthquakes. You need to replace your sewer lines when they develop cracks and start to leak. Clear all clogs in your sewer lines to prevent them from bursting due to increased pressure inside the pipes.

Signs You Need Replacement Services

It is quite hard to detect sewer line problems early enough because sewer lines are often buried underground. Nevertheless, there are a few signs to look out for that could be indicators of the need for sewer line repair or replacement:

  • Damp patches in your yard – sewage can leak from sewer lines and spread to the surrounding ground causing damp patches to develop on the ground surrounding the sewer line.
  • Sewage stink- Sewer odor coming from your lawn could be a sign that you need sewer line repair or replacement.
