When Do I Need to Replace My Sewer Line or Lines?
Simply put, you’ll need to replace your sewer lines when they cannot be repaired or if extensive repairs would outweigh the cost of outright replacement of the sewer line. Some sewer lines may actually be repairable, and an honest plumbing expert like Performance Plumbing will let you know if this is an option after the sewer lines are inspected. You’ll typically first see signs of the problem in the form of the resulting symptoms such as low water pressure, leaks, sinkholes, overflowing or other issues.

What Causes Sewer Lines to Need Replacement?
There are a number of things that can result in the need to have your sewer line replaced. You’re probably already familiar with the symptoms like overflowing, leakage, or incorrect water pressure, but here are some of the most common problems that are actually causing those symptoms:

  • One of the most common problems that face sewer lines is when roots from shrubs or trees grow into the sewer lines via cracks in the pipes. These roots thrive inside the pipes where they can access and endless supply of water and nutrients, causing them to eventually grow and block the pipe. If the problem is severe enough, the roots can compromise the integrity of the pipe to the point where you may want to replace the sewer line. In addition, you’ll likely want to remove the shrub or tree, or at least find a way to prevent the roots from reinvading the pipe.
  • Shifting soil, frozen ground, settling, and other issues can cause problems related to the sewer line’s surrounding area, which can also merit replacement due to cracks, breaking, offset alignment or collapse of the sewer line.
  • Corrosion of the sewer line can also deteriorate or break the structure of the line, which can result in the collapse of the line and/or reduce flow.
  • Low quality workmanship can also be a huge problem that becomes apparent only much later due to corrosion or deterioration, which is another reason why it’s so important to find the right professional for sewer line replacement.
