Common Issues That Require Repairs

Many don’t consider sewer lines when we think about necessary home repairs because we never see them. However, they are a vital aspect whenever trying to run a well-maintained home.

Time to Consider a Replacement

Sometimes a sewer line repair isn’t enough to fix the issue at hand, and you may need to replace your lines. Our highly trained technicians can help you install new sewer lines if the situation calls for it. Before you schedule a sewer line installation, let your technician know if you have experienced one of the following issues, including:

  • Gurgling sounds coming from your pipes can either mean a clog could be repaired or your line has significant damage due to tree roots, calcium buildup, or grease.
  • Slow-draining water can mean you have an excess of calcium buildup in your lines. If this cannot be cleaned out properly, then you may have to have them replaced.
  • Soggy yards or a sewage smell can be due to a leak in your line and should be inspected immediately.
  • An increase in pests that visit your home can also indicate that your lines may be damaged or leaking.

If you suspect there is damage to your sewer line, call our company and speak to one of our representatives to schedule an inspection. We will be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns that you may have regarding your sewer lines and how to either repair or replace them.
