Dealing with a broken sewer pipe can be a stressful, unpleasant process. From nasty odors to sewage backflow, rodent infestations and more, damaged sewer pipes can produce a range of annoying symptoms that can seriously affect your quality of life.
Most of the time, damage to a sewer pipe is easy to detect. Once our team has identified the location of the sewer pipe crack or other damage, we can carry out a full replacement of your sewer line, ending any issues and restoring normal function.
We also offer sewer pipe installation for new buildings, from residential homes and apartments to commercial buildings.
Does Your Home Have a Damaged Sewer Pipe?
Sewers can become damaged in several ways. Sometimes, tree roots can break into the sewer pipe, resulting in cracks in the pipe’s exterior. In other cases, construction or excavation can cut into the sewer pipe that connects your home to the public sewer system.
Regardless of the cause of the damage to your home or building’s sewer pipe, sewer issues are usually very easy to detect. If you’ve noticed any of the signs listed below, your home or building may have a damaged or broken sewer pipe:
Unpleasant, sewage-like smell from your toilet and other drains. This is caused by sewer gas escaping back up the line into your home. The smell of a broken sewer is often unpleasant and uncomfortable.
Blocked drains and toilets. Do your drains work extremely slowly? Have you noticed water flowing back up into your toilet after flushing? These are often signs of a broken sewer pipe that isn’t draining properly.
Insect and/or rodent infestation. Rats, cockroaches and other common pests often live inside public sewers. If your sewer drain is broken or damaged, these pests might travel up the pipe and infest your home or building.
Wastewater and sewage in your yard. If your sewer pipe is broken outside your home, it can cause wastewater and sewage to seep into your yard, resulting in patches of soft ground and dirty, stagnant wastewater throughout your property.
Foundation cracks and structural damage. Major sewer leaks can cause dirty water to pool under your home, resulting in uneven patches that can damage the foundation and cause cracks to develop.
All of these are serious signs that you need to take action quickly. If you notice any of the signs listed above in your home or building, you should contact a qualified plumber to carry out a full leak detection and sewer pipe repair.
