Common Causes of Issues with Sewer & Water Lines
There are so many reasons why sewer and water lines need regular maintenance and repair. Simply put, it’s quite a challenge to keep water flowing through a pipe without interruption for years. History shows us that many of these factors come into play when looking at long standing sewer lines and water lines:
Corrosion is a very common issue that can cause sewer and water lines to leak or bust. If you’ve heard of iron rusting, you’re familiar with corrosion. Not only can corrosion weaken pipes and create holes in them, putting your home or business at risk of being flooded, but it can also impact your water pressure and water quality.
Corrosion can be especially problematic in older homes, where the plumbing has been put through more wear-and-tear and the material used in piping is out of date.
Tree branches growing near a water or sewer line can indeed leaf an impression if you’re not careful. Because tree roots are attracted to sources of flowing water, they can be attracted to both sewer and water lines. And those strong root systems can wreak havoc on your plumbing as they penetrate or crush pipes in their quest for water.
Freezing and Thawing
When the weather is swinging back and forth from thawing to freezing, your pipes are at risk too. This is because the water inside the pipes is expanding and contracting, which can weaken and wear the pipes down because they are forced to accommodate the freezing water. So, be aware if the weather changes from freezing cold to being hot as this can be brutal to your plumbing system.
Too often, people put things down the drain or toilet that they shouldn’t. For example, maybe a child decided to empty their toy case down the toilet and flushed it. Or maybe a guest of yours got lazy and tossed a bunch of grease and cooking oil down the drain. The point is that when your sewer or water lines get clogged, no matter how it happens, big problems can result. These issues can vary in how quickly they become obvious. If you notice deteriorating performance or other issues its best to get these things investigated and fixed promptly. Left unattended it can cause more issues down the line.
The Consequences of Burst and Damaged Sewer & Water Lines
There’s a huge range of issues that can result from damaged or burst sewer or water lines. Consequences of these things happening include lost water pressure in your house, poorer water quality, foul smells, your drains not functioning, water damage and mold occurring, and more.
And problems can quickly spiral out of control. If your water line is damaged in your house and leaking, this can not only result in unhealthy mold growth, but also a weakening of the house’s structure. If your sewer line outside your house is leaking, this can cause sewage to begin to collect in your yard, causing foul smells, killing plants, and attracting insects and rodents to your yard. The last thing you want is to pay thousands of dollars in damages and have to deal with the stress of all these problems occurring.
Repairing Sewer and Water Lines
Luckily for you though, we at Frog are familiar with all the ways to quickly and efficiently repair sewer and water lines, depending on the type of pipe (copper, iron, steel, or PVC) and the nature and extent of the damage.
If you only have minor leakage and damage, no excavation will have to be done at all. We can use leak detection technology to find the leaks and then use an epoxy lining that coats the inner part of the pipe and fixes any cracks. So that leak will be sealed right up for you. This is the least invasive and another reason why to address issues as quickly as you can.
Unfortunately though, sometimes the problem is much more than minor, like when a pipe of yours bursts. When this happens, we have to often excavate to replace any broken sections of pipe. Allowing for further investigation and diagnostics, our trained team of expert plumbers will test for further to verify the integrity of the surrounding plumbing once exposed. If any further concerns are identified, our plumbing repair technicians will make recommendations along the way and keep you informed.
