Signs You Need Sewer Main Repair

Trouble in your home’s main sewer line isn't always easy to spot, and by the time you realize there’s something wrong, the damage is likely already done. Here are a few signs to watch for that signal you need sewer line repairs.

  • Foul Odours: The stench of sewer gas coming out of the drains is a sure sign you have a problem somewhere in your plumbing system. It could be a clog or a collapsed pipe.
  • Slow Drains: If you have a slow drain at one fixture, it’s likely a problem in that pipe; however, if you have multiple drains that empty slowly, it could be a clog in the main sewer line.
  • Clogs: Like slow drains, a clog in one fixture means an isolated problem, but when the clog affects multiple drains, the problem is probably in your main sewer line.
  • Overly Lush Lawn or Pooling Water: Overly green or lush patches on your lawn or pools of water indicate a ruptured sewer line, which requires immediate repair.

If you notice any of the above signs, call Sewer Squad Plumbing & Drain Services and let us perform a sewer camera inspection to find out exactly what the problem is.

Sewer Pipe Repair or Replacement: Which Way to Go?

Repairing a sewer pipe often means the inconvenience of digging up portions of your property to access the pipe to effect repairs. Knowing this, you may wonder if it’s better to repair the line or replace it. Here are a few things to consider:

If the problem is small holes or cracks in the pipe, you can usually get by with repairing the affected area. Many plumbing contractors use a technology called trenchless pipe repair that doesn’t require excavating your yard to perform the work.

If the damage is more severe, however, or if your sewer line is over 50 years old, replacement is the better option because it will add value to your home and prove to be more reliable than repairs.

If you’re not sure which way to go with your sewer line issue, contact us and let us inspect your sewer line and recommend the best path forward.

You can protect your family’s drinking water against contamination by installing a backwater valve.

What Causes Sewer Line Damage?

Since every drain in your home eventually connects to the main sewer line, when you have trouble there, you have problems throughout the entire plumbing system. Here are the most common causes of damaged sewer lines.

  • Shifting Soil: When soil moves or shifts, it can cause the line to jostle, creating cracks and breaks.
  • Clogs: If grease, waste, debris, or tree roots clog up the pipe, it can cause water pressure to build leading to a rupture.
  • Age: Many Mississauga homes are hooked up to old clay sewer lines, which are crumbling as they age.
  • Corrosion: Older metal pipes corrode when they get old, which leads to leaks and breaks.

If you suspect that you have trouble with your main sewer line, you must call a professional for repairs as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the worse the damage and the more expensive the repair.
