How Sewer Lines Work
How Hydro Jetting Works
Sewer lines can be in different locations, depending on the structure of the property and the plumbing system. Common placement is near the foundation of the house itself, or near the street, where public and private plumbing come together.
Depending on the location, tree roots can cause damage to sewer lines if they are left unchecked or not managed properly. This is because the roots of trees are constantly searching for moisture and nutrients, which can be found in the form of sewage flowing through pipes. In extreme cases, tree roots can even penetrate the piping material itself which can cause extensive damage that may require replacing large sections of the system.
The age of the pipes will also be a factor in how well the sewer lines work. The older the pipes, the more vulnerable they will be to cracks and corrosion. And then there’s the potential problem that property owners can control themselves—watching what gets flushed down the toilet. Paper towels are a prime example of something that can clog up a system and require the services of a Mesa sewer line professional.
Warning Signs of Sewer Line Damage
Early detection is important with any problem and sewer line damage is no different.
Here are some hints that there might be a problem:
- Foul Odors: Unpleasant smells around the drainage pipes, or near areas where there are no obvious sources of contamination, could be a sign of sewage backing up in the lines.
- Slow Drains: This might not seem like an issue at first but if left unchecked can turn into something more serious. Make sure any slow draining showers, baths or sinks are investigated immediately as this could be due to blockages that require professional attention.
- Gurgling Noises: If you hear loud gurgling noises coming from inside your pipes then this could mean that air is being forced out by an obstruction or blockage in the system.
- Lush Green Grass: Don’t take it out on the messenger, but that bright green lawn might be because the sewer line is leaking, and the extra water underneath the grass is helping the lawn look the fairway at a golf course. Unless there’s been lawn care efforts above and beyond what have been done recently, the greener-than-normal grass might be coming at a heavy cost.
