Repair or Replace Sewer Line?

Home / Repair or Replace Sewer Line?

There are times when, as a homeowner or business owner in Gaithersburg, Germantown, Rockville, or Damascus, MD, and nearby areas, you’ll have to decide between repair or replacement. As a general rule, sewer line repair is recommended if there are cracks or holes in a sewer line that is in otherwise good shape. But if severe damage is detected, sewer line replacement is often the better option. Let A-1 Trenchless Services explain things in greater detail in this blog post.

Issues with Sewer Pipes

It’s fairly common to need blocked sewer line repair if you are dealing with tree roots, a typical issue with sewer pipes. Roots that make their way into sewer pipes and cause serious problems and further damage if not taken care of at the first sign of a problem. You may also benefit from sewer line services from A-1 Trenchless Services if you are experiencing any of the following sewer pipe issues:

• Pipes that are misaligned

• Broken or cracked sewer pipes

• Pipe corrosion or deterioration

• Leaking sewer pipe joints

• Bellied sewer pipes

The most obvious red flag of a sewer problem is backups and blockages affecting the lowest open drains in your home. This is more likely to the case if you notice a backup in one drain when you run water down another one since all drains rely on the same main sewer line.

Additionally, you may need broken or blocked sewer line repair if you notice strong sewer gas odor around your home or building, slow drains, unusually green or lush patches on your lawn, and visible indentations in your lawn or under paving stones. Sewer line repair or replacement may also be necessary if you spot foundation cracks or mold on walls that have sewer pipes behind them. Insect and rodent problems are other possible red flags to be aware of.
