How Can You Tell if You Need Pipe Replacement?

How Can You Tell if You Need Pipe Replacement?

  • If there’s anything you’d wish to find out immediately in your home, it would be how bad the sewer pipe problem you have. But, we understand it can be a wee bit challenging to figure out if your plumbing needs work because it’s a complex system, hidden from your sight down the trench. To make your life easy, we’ve put together some red flags that your sewer line may need a repiping anytime soon.

How Can You Tell if You Need Pipe Replacement?

        Your drains are taking forever to flush – If neither of your drains in the house is flushing fast, from your toilet to your sink and your tub, there’s a big chance that a clog somewhere is obstructing the flow of the water. A clogged sewer drain line can compromise the plumbing throughout your entire home. In the worse case, you may wind up with raw sewage and murky water backing up out of your drains, even in your toilet. That’s why this problem needs to be looked at by a drain professional right away so they can inspect where exactly the clog is. Taking this for granted will surely leave you with a completely broken sewer line.

        Completely corrosive pipes – Pipe corrosion is a normal situation that happens on metal pipes as they age. In cast-iron sewer pipes, corrosion deposits, also known as scales, naturally form over time and stick to the pipe’s inner walls. Every time you flush the toilet or use the sink, debris can get caught up or slowed down by these deposits, the reason why you’re constantly having trouble with clogs. If corrosion is left untreated, it can weaken the pipe walls to the point that the entire pipeline will need to be completely replaced. 

  • If there’s a section of your sewer pipe that is exposed, assess the condition by looking for signs of rust or corrosion. If either of these is clearly evident, chances are corrosion is occurring throughout the entire pipe length and it’s time to replace your pipe. But if there’s no way for you to tell it yourself, seek help from Revolution Pipe Relining
  •  

        Your sewer system is over 50 years old – Sewer pipes are built to sustain for decades without trouble, but many sewer lines installed over 4 to 5 decades ago and made of materials that are behind times such as galvanized steel and cast-iron, places pipelines in significant danger of failing due to corrosion. If your antiquated sewer line is starting to wear away, a full repiping is the best solution. But, depending on the extent of the corrosion, you may have other options to fix it, but there’s no guarantee that the other sections of the pipe may be able to hold up for years. Our sewer pipe replacement Sydney team will surely be able to determine what can best fix your current sewer line condition and even determine the age of your pipe.

        Tree roots have ravaged your sewer line – Several things can cause sewer pipes to leak, but the most dreaded of all is when tree roots enter the sewer through cracks and holes. When that happens, the roots can grow in great width and lengths. What makes roots inside the sewer line worse is that they can grow even double the length of your sewer pipe, which makes it easy for them to leave you with a failed sewer line. So as soon as you notice your drains are taking time to flush the water, whether in your toilet, tub or sink, request for sewer inspection right away. Don’t underestimate a clog, if you don’t want to end up with a full-blown home renovation job.

       Your pipe has burst on numerous occasions – There are a lot of situations that can make the pipe burst, but the most common is changing temperature. Because sewer lines are hidden underneath the ground, it is normal for them to experience extremely low and high temperatures. As the pipe freezes and thaws, the pipe expands and contracts, leading the pipe to burst. If you don’t want to keep running into this trouble over and over, speak to us for pipe replacement solutions. Replacing your sewer pipe with a more durable option ensures a longer-lasting 

What should you do?

Whilst you already know the red flags of a bad sewer line, sometimes it doesn’t send a message of caution but just leaves you scratching your head. If you want to prevent this from happening, speak with our team for a sewer inspection to confirm what’s really going on. Sewer line inspection reveals the real condition of your pipe and pinpoints the location of failures. This makes it easy for us to carry out drain pipe replacement, PVC pipe replacement, and underground replacement for you. Replacing pipes in the house may take time but once it is replaced with a more durable option, it will be worth the wait and your money.
