Signs You Need Sewer Replacement

Early identification of a failing sewer line can save you from extensive damage and costly repairs. It will also help you mitigate the health risks associated with a malfunctioning sewer system. Signs you need sewer replacement include the following:

  • Persistent Clogs: If your drains and toilets are frequently clogged despite your best efforts to clear them, you may be dealing with a sewer line issue. Severe cases of debris and sediment accumulation may necessitate a full sewer replacement.
  • Slow Drains: Slow drains across multiple fixtures indicate a partial blockage or damage within the sewer line. Prompt attention from a plumber is crucial to prevent complete blockages.
  • Foul Odors: Persistent, unpleasant odors emanating from your drains or yard indicate potential sewer line damage. Sewage buildup often leads to foul odors permeating both indoor and outdoor spaces. Sometimes, sewer replacement is the only way to resolve this issue.
  • Lush Patches and Yard Indentations: Unusual lush grass patches or indentations in your yard can be a sign of leaking sewage from a damaged sewer line. These patches warrant a professional inspection.
  • Age of the Sewer System: Sewer lines over 50 years old are prone to deterioration and may need proactive replacement to avoid future problems.
  • Previous Sewer Line Issues: If you are still experiencing issues after having your sewer repaired, a complete sewer line replacement might be the best long-term solution.

The Sewer Replacement Process

At Arnold & Sons Plumbing, we follow a meticulous process to ensure your sewer replacement is performed efficiently and effectively. The steps to sewer replacement are as follows:

  1. Initial Assessment: We will perform a thorough analysis of your sewer line using sonar locating and advanced video inspection technology to determine the extent of the damage.
  2. Locating Utilities: We will locate and mark the utility lines on your property to prevent them from being damaged during excavation.
  3. Shutoff Valve Location: We will identify and engage your shutoff valve to prevent water from flowing through the damaged area of your sewer line while it is being replaced.
  4. Trench Digging: We begin by carefully excavating a trench over the area of your sewer line that needs replacing.
  5. Removing and Replacing Your Sewer Line: Next, we remove the old, damaged sewer pipe from the trench. New sewer pipes are laid in the trench, ensuring they are properly aligned and sloped for optimal drainage.
  6. Inspection: Before covering the new pipes, we will perform a thorough inspection to ensure all connections are secure and the system is functioning correctly.
  7. Backfilling the Trench: The trench is backfilled with suitable materials, which may include soil, sand, or gravel, to provide proper support and prevent future settling. We will restore the surface of your property with sod, concrete, or other materials that were removed during excavation.
  8. System Testing: The new sewer line is tested to ensure it is working correctly and there are no leaks or blockages.
