Signs Your Sewer Line Might be Broken
Have you noticed one or more of these signs? If you suspect your sewer line is damaged, don’t wait too long before calling a plumber.
- Gurgling Noises: After you flush, you notice loud gurgling noises from the toilet. Sometimes water may come back up (backsplash) in another drain. You likely have a severe clog or a broken sewer pipe.
- Puddles of Water on Lawn: You’ve seen unusual amounts of moisture and pooling of water on your lawn.
- Strong Smells: A foul odor is one of the most noticeable (and unbearable) signs of a broken sewer line.
- Slow Draining: If your sinks, showers, tubs and toilets all seem to be taking their time draining, it may be a sign of a tree root blocking the pipe.
The Most Common Causes of Broken Sewer Lines
The number one cause of broken sewer lines is tree roots. Here’s a brief explanation of how tree roots damage underground plumbing.
By nature, tree roots are always on the lookout for water and nutrients. With regular household use, underground pipes warm up and become slightly warmer than the surrounding soil. This causes condensation to form on the pipes releasing moisture into the earth. Tree roots have been known to grow and travel to great distances if they detect any water.
Once the tree root has reached the sewer line, it applies continual pressure to the pipe to try to reach the water. Eventually the tree root will find a crack or an opening in the pipe, usually in a joint and penetrate the pipe. The root fills up the pipe creating clogs or backups.
Other causes of broken pipes include:
- Age and/or pipe corrosion. Older pipes made of clay tile or cast iron are most susceptible to tree root invasions.
- Household debris can cause a severe blockage and eventually enough pressure to burst the pipe.
- Natural shifting or settlement of the ground over time. Sometimes nearby construction can rattle the ground enough to break a pipe.
How We Help
To pinpoint the cause and location of the breakage, a video camera inspection is used. This will inform us of the best method to take such as hydrojetting, trenchless sewer line repair, or excavation.
