How Do Sewer Lines Become Damaged in Carmichael CA?
Your main sewer line runs under the ground beneath your house and yard, but several things could still damage it.
Tree Roots: The most common source of sewer line damage. As the trees in your yard grow, their root systems push further into the ground. Roots can grow with enough force to punch through pipe walls, causing a rupture and blocking flow.
Sediment Buildup: Over time, minerals and other debris in your water may collect on pipe walls, including the walls of the sewer main line. If enough sediment builds on the sewer lines walls, it may block water flow. If the block is bad enough, pressure may build in the pipe until it ruptures.
Rust: Most sewer lines are made of metal, which means they will rust or corrode over a long enough period of time. Rusted pipes may crack or rupture. This is particularly likely if your home is old or your pipes are made of substandard material.
High Pressure: If your home’s water is over pressurized, it may put your sewer line under more strain than it can handle. Over pressurized water may also wear down inner pipe walls.
Ground Shifting: If the ground around or under the sewer line shifts, the pipe may detach, bend, or break off. Earthquakes may shake up the ground enough to do this, but other natural disasters or nearby major construction may also be responsible.
How Can I Tell If My Sewer Line Is Damaged in Carmichael CA?
One or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily guarantee a sewer line problem, but if you have them
you should consider having us out to at least perform a thorough inspection.
Sewage Backups: If water or sewage periodically flows back up through your drains, it may be
because there’s a blockage in the main sewer line preventing that sewage from flowing out of your home.
Drain Blockage: If you tend to experience drain blockages frequently, or if several or all of your drains clog simultaneously, it may be because of a blockage or clog in the main sewer line.
Sewer Gas Smell: Damage to the sewer line may cause raw sewage to leak or seep out, flow back upwards through your home’s pipes, or sit stagnant inside your pipes. You may be able to smell the foul-smelling gases generated by this sewage in or around your house.
Slow Draining: When build-up or clogs accumulate on your sewer line’s walls, sewage may have a hard time travelling through it at a normal speed. Slowdown in the sewer line below will eventually slow down your drains, too.
Wet or Soft Spots in Yard: When sewer lines leak, they expel sewage water out into the ground around them. This sewage can permeate the ground and rise, eventually softening the yard or even flooding it.
