5 Major Signs Your Sewer is Nearing Point of Complete Failure

  1. Every day brings many possibilities, and your sewer system is not an exception. The possibility of it cropping up some problem is something you cannot avoid, especially when you have older pipes. And because it’s easy to be caught off guard by sewer failures, it’s important that you know when to tell it’s losing the capacity to handle daily beatings to avoid as much as possible its surprising and devastating impact in your home. Read below to learn what these are.

Effects of a Bad Sewer Line in Your Home

  1. • Foundational damage
  2. • Leaking instances
  3. • Presence of mold and mildew
  4. • Swampy yard
  5. • Health hazard due to exposure to sewer gas
  6. • Presence of sewer pest
  7. • Slow drainage
  8. • Clogging situations in different or multiple areas
  9. • Sewer backups
  10. • Burst pipe

5 Major Signs Your Sewer is Nearing Point of Complete Failure

  1. YOUR DRAIN KEEPS CLOGGING UP
  2.  
  3. There are meters of piping concealed within your walls and ceilings, and even underneath your homes. They gave you access to clean water while also taking away waste you don’t want. Because they do a lot of work, round the clock, it’s expected that they become weak and develop repeated problems over time, just like drain clogs. Clogs that happen once in a while are considered normal, but when it comes about in numerous instances, it is a different story. They are but clear indications that your pipe’s operational lifespan is nearing its end. Especially when you notice the date of the visit of a plumber is getting closer together. 
  4.  
  5. Clogs are a result of years of buildup, tree roots that have grown inside the sewer, or foreign items that made it through the line. If that is the case, it needs to be addressed right away. Clogs can make the pipe lose its efficiency and reduce its lifespan to only a few years. That means, if you allow clogs to go unaddressed, the tendency that your pipe requires a complete repiping is sure to happen. To avoid the problem from escalating into a pipe replacement situation, contact the sewer pipe relining professionals right away to clear the clogs and fix any possible fractures.
  6.  
  7. TREE ROOTS ARE CRAWLING TOWARDS YOUR SEWER LINE
  8.  
  9. It’s a common misconception to say that tree roots can break into your sewer line. The reality is, no tree roots can make it through the sewer line unless it has fissures that allow it to have an entry point. Even if the trees are just in your neighborhood’s property, if your sewer has leaks, the tree roots will be able to find their way there. Trees just don’t make good friends with sewer lines. They’re a selfish gift of mother nature that likes the nutrients and water they take up in your sewer and leaves them completely worthless.
  10.  
  11. If there are trees nearby or in front of your property, spare some time to inspect where the roots are growing towards. You will know that your sewer will in no time reach its point of collapse if they appear to be growing massively and crawling into where your sewer pipe lies. Depending on the outcome of your exploration, if you find tree roots running directly above where your sewer, call the sewer pipe relining in Sydney professionals right away. Roots can grow in enormous size inside your sewer line and when it happens, your home is at risk not only for complete sewer damage but as well as structural damage when roots crawl towards your drains.
  12.  
  13. YOUR DRAINS ARE GIVING OFF A FOUL SMELL
  14.  
  15. The whole idea of the sewer system is to create a hygienic way to direct sewage from your home to the main system. The system is completely airtight except for some vent stacks that connect from the waste pipes to the outside of your home, often going through the roof. If there are foul odors emanating from any of your drains, there’s a big chance that there is a blockage and cracks in the line. Obstructions and cracks can be caused by several factors like the pipe that has become brittle, tree roots growing inside the pipe, or the earth has shifted and it left the pipe with cracks and gaps. This situation won’t take place if your sewer line is in good condition. Unfortunately, this is a problem that you shouldn’t take lightly as it can easily escalate into a full-blown pipe replacement job. If you don’t want this to happen, be quick to call the professionals to fix this problem. The foul smell that’s coming out of your drains is hazardous to health, and we’re sure you don’t want to deal with its effect.
  16.  
  17. UNEXPECTED SOGGY, GREEN PATCHES IN YOUR YARD
  18.  
  19. If it has been a long time since you gave your yard a tender love and care but you notice it’s out of the blue looking soggy and some spots have grown greener grasses, be concerned. You might think it’s just another landscaping problem, but there could be a more serious problem underneath the ground. Your sewer system sees a lot of use daily, so it’ll obviously give in to clogs that can easily lead to leaks. While sewer leaks can be more noticeable outside your home, they can also spell disaster indoors. Before your yard turns into a lake of sewage, advise the sewer relining contractors to fix the leaks.
  20.  
  21. WHAT YOU FLUSH COMES BACK UP
  22.  
  23. Whatever is flushed down must go down, but if the sewer has an obstruction, you can expect the opposite. Looking down on the toilet and drains with sewage and waste backing up must be the scariest scene you might have experienced. That’s why it just makes totally a lot of sense to throw waste to where it properly belongs. If you can’t do away with toilet paper, limit the amount to a bare minimum instead. Toilet paper is meant to dissolve but you can’t really trust some brands. The reality is toilet paper does not degenerate right away, it takes them years to do that. It can only ball up, trap other sewer elements and cause fatberg clogs. Grease is another enemy of the sewer lines. They can harden and cause more buildup to accumulate, the reasons why you can’t make your waste and water travel down the line.
  24.  
  25. If this is how your toilet and all drains in your home behave, then you’re in trouble. If you don’t fix this problem before you know it, you’re already experiencing full of waste, toilets overflowing, and showers with ankle-deep wastewater. A blocked sewer is nothing but a headache and only increases the sewer pipe relining cost, when the problem escalates into a leaking situation. Before it’s too late, speak to our team about your options to fix the problem for good.
