What Causes Sewer Line Issues?
There are several reasons you might need sewer repair. All of the following could be the cause of your sewer issues:
One of the most common causes of sewer line repair is a clog. Over time, materials collect in your pipes. Grease, hair, and food scraps end up in your drain. They form blockages that prevent water from flowing through your sewer line. If you end up with a stubborn clog, you need sewer and drain cleaning. Without it, your problem will worsen and your pipes could burst.
At times, tree roots are responsible for sewer line issues. The roots seek the moisture inside your pipes, so they may try to penetrate your pipes. If they’re successful, the tree roots will cause serious trouble for your plumbing. They’ll cause a significant blockage and prevent your water from flowing. You need a plumber to cut the roots and repair or replace the pipe.
As time goes by, your pipes deteriorate. They might crack or sag, which causes the pipes to collapse. If you experience collapsed pipes, you need to replace your pipes immediately. Our sewer line repair can help you and get your plumbing back up and running.
Types of Drain Pipes
There are several types of drain pipes you might find in your home. Depending on the age of your home and the installation, you could have one of the following drain pipes:
Because steel pipes are very difficult to maintain, they are uncommon in new homes. The zinc in the pipes can degrade, and this causes rusting and clogging. If you have frequent clogs, it could be from your steel pipes.
In the 1930s, copper pipes became popular. This metal quickly replaced steel pipes because of its resilience. Copper is light, small, and easy to work with. That said, there are some disadvantages to copper drain pipes. As an expensive metal, copper is costly to maintain. It’s not always the best option.
Since the 1950s, PVC pipes have been used in plumbing systems. The material is rust-proof and highly durable. However, it is intolerant to heat.
PEX is strong and tolerant to heat. In recent years, it has become the industry standard for certain parts of plumbing systems. It’s rust-proof and can last through the years. If you have a newer home, you could have a mix of PEX and PVC pipes.
