A sewer leak on your drain line, or main sewer line, can be hard to detect and can also damage your property. Standing or ponding water from leaking sewer lines are also a health hazard and frequently go undiagnosed. Leaking drain pipes can also undermine your drain system and cause separations. Our plumbers often perform a dye test to pinpoint the source because the source of leaking water can be hard to detect. Commonly, pipes or water service lines are replaced, only to discover they were not the source of a leak. Surprisingly sewer water is not always dirty or discolored and often gets mistaken for a water supply line leak.
Leaking sewer lines inside your home can damage furniture, cabinets, floors, carpentry, and other valuable objects. Left unattended, leaking sewer water can lead to mold and much more serious structural damage.
Repairing or replacing broken sewer lines is a headache most homeowners would like to avoid. Many times, the contractor must excavate portions of the yard or street to reach the line to effect repairs.
If you’re having issues with your sewer line, you may be tempted to repair it rather than replace it. Here are a few things to consider before you make your decision.
If the issue is small cracks or holes, you can get by with a repair to the damaged section. However, severe damage often means replacing the line. Also, consider the age and material of the line. If the pipe is over 50 years old, or made with galvanized metal, repairing it won’t do much good because it’s likely to fail again soon.
