Potential Reasons for Your Sewer Line Break
When it comes to busted sewer lines, there are two potential ways they can break. First, external pressure from shifting ground or encroaching tree roots can overpower the sewer line and cause it to fracture. Tree roots can create a lot of problems for your plumbing, so it’s important to keep the roots trimmed away from your sewer line and main water line.
Pipes may also fail as a result of internal forces. Mineral deposits can clog up your lines, placing tremendous pressure on connecting joints and rupturing the pipe. Debris from your home’s sewer water (such as unflushables) can also clog up your lines and produce the same results. Of course, long term pipe degradation and corrosion will eventually cause any pipe to fail, even the most durable materials.
Sewer Leak Symptoms
Sewer leaks are smelly business, and your nose may be the first to know when something goes wrong. If the sewer line has backed up as the result of a clog, you’ll probably start to smell the stench and see bubbles coming out of your sink, drains, and/or toilet. If no clog exists, the first sign of the problem may be a nasty puddle out in the yard. Raw sewage can be very hazardous to the environment (animals and nearby plants), so you’ll want to get the issue resolved as quickly as possible. Our experienced plumbers have decades of experience under their belts, and they’d be happy to provide sewer line repair in Fort Worth, TX and the surrounding areas.
