You probably don’t pay much attention to your sewer line until something goes wrong. And while sewage spilling back into your house is a big red flag that most homeowners would quickly recognize, there are a few other signs of trouble to be aware of when it comes to needing sewer line replacement. Noticing them and promptly calling a plumber can help reduce inconvenience, unexpected expenses and a messy clean-up.
You’re Bothered by Strong Odors
Modern sewers are designed to keep the contents of the pipes from backing into your home, and that includes unpleasant odors. When you detect those smells in your basement or outdoors around the slab, something’s not right, and it could be the sewer line.
You Observe Slow Drains
If one drain in your home is sluggish, it could be the result of a clog. But if multiple drains are involved, that’s a sign of a bigger problem. It could be a clog in the sewer line that may be cleared by a plumber or a more serious problem that requires replacement of the line from the municipal pipe to your house.
The Sewer Line is Old
Depending on what your sewer line pipe is made from, your line may need to be replaced simply based on its age. Most last from 50-100 years. If you suspect your sewer pipes are that old, it’s worth calling a professional plumber for an assessment.
