Warning Signs That Your Sewer or Water Lines Need Repairs
It’s not always easy to tell when your sewer or water lines need repairs. Because these pipes are hidden away behind walls and under the ground, you can’t always tell when they are corroded, cracked, or otherwise damaged. Because of this, you should keep an eye out for certain warning signs that indicate there’s something wrong with your sewer or water lines.
Some of the most common warning signs include:
- Multiple clogs throughout your home
- Frequent clogs that keep coming back
- Unpleasant sewage smells in and around your home
- Slow drains or frequent back-ups
- Damp, muddy, or lush patches in your yard
- Unexplained increases on your water bills
- Gurgling noises coming from toilets, tubs, showers, and sinks
- New or worsened pest infestations
- Uneven water levels in toilet bowls
At J&R Herra Home Services, our team can come out for an onsite inspection. If you have noticed any of these warning signs, do not hesitate to schedule a service with our experienced plumbing professionals. We can determine whether you need sewer or water line repairs and, if so, can recommend the best option for your home.
Water and sewer line problems are common issues for homeowners. When it comes to fixing or replacing these systems, there are a variety of methods that can be implemented depending on the circumstances.
Some of the most common methods for repairing and replacing sewer or water lines include:
- Excavation: Excavation is a tried-and-true method of repairing sewer and water lines. The process involves digging trenches to access old pipes and either repair them or remove them and replace them with new pipes. Although this is a more time-consuming process than trenchless pipe repair, it is also one of the most effective methods of repairing or replacing sewer and water lines.
- Trenchless Pipe Repair: One of the most common tactics for repairing water and sewer lines is trenchless pipe repair, which requires minimal destruction to repair or replace underground pipes without digging large trenches. This method is relatively non-invasive compared to other traditional repairs, such as excavation, as only small access points are needed.
- Pipe Bursting: Another common method for repairing water lines is pipe bursting. In this technique, a special tool pulls a cable through existing pipes while breaking them apart at the same time and replacing them with new tubing made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Pipe bursting is often used to replace old, damaged pipes that are prone to corrosion or deterioration. It’s also useful for installing larger pipes to increase the flow rate of the system.
- Directional Drilling: When it comes to replacing sewer lines, one of the most popular methods is called directional drilling. This involves using specialized machinery that drills horizontally along an underground path determined by surveyors ahead of time before inserting a new pipe in its place. As with many other types of repairs, directional drilling requires very little disruption to your property as it’s done beneath the surface rather than through large trenches dug out manually.
- Hydrojetting: When it comes to clearing large clogs and blockages, hydrojetting is a powerful method of clearing debris that has built up over time. Hydrojetting uses powerful streams of water that cut away blockages, like tree roots and mineral deposits, along with any other material blocking the flow inside your plumbing system. The water pressure used in this process is usually around 3,000 PSI, which helps break down even stubborn blockages caused by dirt and grease buildup.
At J&R Herra Home Services, we can help determine the best method for repairing or replacing your home’s sewer or water lines. We are never pushy when it comes to selling our services, and we will never recommend something we don’t truly believe you need.
