Sewer line cleaning should be done preventatively every 18-22 months to prevent buildup and blockages that can lead to costly repairs.

While DIY methods like chemical cleaners and drain snakes can provide temporary relief, they may not effectively clean the entire sewer line and can cause damage if not used properly.

Common Sewer Line Problems

Your pipes are susceptible to corrosion, leaks, and tree roots that weaken your pipes over time. A broken sewer line is hazardous because it can allow contaminated water to enter your home and spread waterborne illnesses. 

Typical sewer line issues include:

  • Older homes have plumbing systems made of outdated materials that experience corrosion faster than today’s PVC materials. The soil, moisture, and weather events your climate experiences weaken your pipes, causing clogs, poor drainage, and collapsed pipes.
  • If your sewer line leaks, it can cause cross-contamination and spread waterborne illnesses throughout your home. You may have a leak if you notice low water pressure, unsuspected puddles, or a higher-than-normal water bill.
  • If you have a tree near your home, its roots can harm your pipes. Root invasion is caused by roots that grow in the direction of water toward your plumbing system. This growth can cause leaks and, eventually, a collapsed pipe that will contaminate your yard. Our expert sewer services in Macomb can help solve these issues when they appear.

These common sewer line problems can put your home at risk for cross-contamination and the spread of dangerous waterborne illnesses. Preventative maintenance, like drain cleaning, is the best way to protect your home from these issues.

What to Expect During a Sewer Line Replacement

If you’re experiencing constant clogs or other issues with your plumbing system that just won’t go away, it may be time for a replacement.

However, this can be a confusing process, so we’ve explained what to expect during a sewer pipe replacement:

  • Diagnosing the problem: Initially, it’s essential that we diagnose the problem and find its exact location. If you need a complete replacement, we’re prepared to excavate your entire system for completely new pipes you can trust.
  • Prepare for digging: This includes marking other underground utilities to protect them during the pipe replacement. This may include temporarily moving landscaping, fencing, or other décor you don’t want to replace.
  • Install the new line: Replacing your sewer line includes a DEP inspector to approve the installation and ensure your system is up to code. This process takes up to a week, depending on preparation and the amount of pipe that needs replacement.

Our expert sewer services in Macomb are here to protect your system. If you don’t take care of your sewer line now, your home could be at risk for cross-contamination and water damage. Trust our team with years of experience to replace or repair your sewer line for long-lasting solutions. We are your local experts that will do whatever it takes to get the job done right at a flat-rate price.
