Causes of Clogged Water/Sewer Lines
There are different causes of blockages in sewer lines but the most likely cause is the growth of tree roots. The warmth, nutrients, and moisture available in sewer lines are essential to the growth of trees. This is why trees are always attracted to them and when roots finally find a way into pipes, they continue to grow. With time, the roots will become large enough to impede the flow of your sewage. Another reason why you may experience blockages in your sewer line is if you've been flushing materials like sanitary pads, facial tissues, and paper towels.
Signs of Clogged Water/Sewer Lines
One of the main signs that show you have a plumbing problem is when your drains start running slower than before. If you try all the DIY tips you can and fail to solve the problem, then there is an issue in your plumbing line. Another sign is when a number of your plumbing fixtures become backed up at the same time. Should your shower, sink, and toilet ever be clogged at the same time, it is a clear sign that there is a problem in your main sewer line. Other signs include bubbling or flushed water resurfacing in your tub or shower.
Effects of Clogged Water/Sewer Lines
The problems that may arise from clogged water or sewer lines are varying. But a problem in your mains will eventually impact your entire plumbing system. First, your laundries will become complicated as your washing machine will take longer to fill/drain. Also, when your sewer lines become clogged, your sewage may find another route to flow through. This can result in you having raw sewage flowing out of your drains. Furthermore, the longer a plumbing problem is allowed to last, the more detrimental it will be to the system.
Water/Sewer Line Replacement
While the repair of your plumbing system will strengthen and extend its lifespan, it can be too late sometimes. This is usually the case when the condition of your plumbing lines has deteriorated too far or it has become very old. If your plumbing materials have served you for over 3 decades, then you should consider replacing them. A replacement will save you more money going forward as old plumbing lines will remain susceptible to damages even when repaired. At STL Excavating Pros, we have the capacity to adequately repair or replace your plumbing lines.
