Seattle Sewer Line Repair

If you are a homeowner in Seattle and have been experiencing sewer backup or a leak, it can be frustrating. Often, it is difficult to pinpoint the problem and you might be considering trenchless sewer repair or sewer replacement services for your Seattle home. Spotting the signs early can help prevent sewer line damage and decrease costs. Some common reasons of damaged sewer lines which would increase the need of sewer repair service include: 

  • Corroded pipes allow for debris to enter in and does not allow for proper waste disposal. This is especially true if the sewer pipes in your Seattle home are several years old or the material that it is made of is clay. Older homes in Seattle are usually made with inferior material and need repair service more often.
  • Clogged pipes don’t allow the sewer system to function as it should. It is important that Seattle homeowners are cautious of what they flush down the drain. Trash like wrappers and paper towels can easily clog the system since it is designed to handle only human waste and toilet paper. In the kitchen sink, cooking oil grease can congest the pipes if it is poured down. Instead, these liquids should be disposed of in the trash. 
  • If you live in an area that is prone to extreme temperatures, your sewer lines are at higher risk. A frozen lines can burst more easily, needing repair or replacement. Extreme heat can also burst lines even though this is less likely to occur.

If there is a foul-smell coming from your yard, it is an easy sign that something is not right. A broken line can let waste out and into the dirt. Many times, pipes are located about six feet from the surface and this escaped waste can cause the lawn to smell. Sewage gas can come through the soil quickly. Another sign is difficulties in the sewer draining process. If several sewer drains in the home are clogging, this might be an indication that there is a plumbing problem with the main sewage line. If your toilet is making loud gurgling noises, this may exhibit that air is being pushed back up and there is a severe blockage (potentially requiring pipe replacement). Another unfortunate issue that comes from a damaged sewer is water damage to the home. This can also cause other issues, such as ruined furniture and mold growth. If there is a broken pipe, water will exit the line and enter into the home.
