How to Choose the Best Sewer Line Replacement Contractor

Many homeowners tend to have the attitude “out of sight, out of mind” when it comes to their sewer lines. Unfortunately, the truth is that your main sewer line isn’t going to last forever. In fact, it will likely need to be replaced at some point. Sewer line replacement is usually needed in older homes that haven’t already had repairs or a replacement. However, there are other circumstances that would call for a sewer line replacement. Follow along to learn the signs that mean you need to call a professional to come check out your pipes. You’ll also learn how to choose the best sewer line replacement contractor.

Signs That You Need Sewer Line Replacement

1. Frequent Clogs

It is bound to happen that your toilet or sink is going to get clogged. No biggie, right? Not necessarily. Clogs become an issue when you have multiple pipes clogging up on a regular basis. Sometimes this might just call for a plumber to come out and do a quick fix. However, this could also be a sign that something is wrong with your system. In that case, you’ll need someone to come and inspect your pipes to find out the issue.

2. Slow-Moving Drains

If you notice you have one or more slow-moving drains, your first step should be to try and clean them out. You can also hire a plumber to clean out your drains if you notice they are draining slowly. The issue arises when either all your drains are moving slow or if after you have had them cleaned, they continue to move slow. If either of those things happen, it might be time to call someone to check your pipes.

3. Sewer Odors Inside or Outside Your Home

If your home begins to smell like sewer, you will want to get it checked out immediately. Not only is there most likely an issue with your pipes, but it is harmful to be breathing in those fumes for too long.

4. Infested with Pests or Rodents

Pests and rodents are commonly found in sewage systems. If you start to see them in your home or a larger amount than usual in your yard, you might have a broken pipe that they are getting out of. It is important to get someone out to check it out before they start to multiply!

5. Wet or Extra Green Patches in Your Lawn

Sewer water will fertilize your grass causing lush, green patches to start popping up. If there is a crack in your sewer line it will start to feed different spots in your lawn, causing extra green patches or super wet spots.
