Common Causes of Sewer Pipe Damage

There are a number of issues that can lead to your sewer pipes needing replacement, but here are the most common.

  • Age - Old iron pipes corrode after about 30 years
  • Tree roots - Tree roots seek out water sources, and if there’s a break in your line, the roots will infiltrate the pipe
  • Fat & Grease - When you pour fat and grease from cooking down the drain, it builds up like cholesterol in an artery, which can cause backup and flooding

Repair vs. Replacement

Digging up a sewer line is an expensive job, and everyone wants to save money on their plumbing costs. Depending on the cause of your sewer line problem, you may get by with a fix, however, that will only delay the inevitable.

When you have a tree root invasion, you can put copper sulfate down the drain which will repel the roots. This buys you some time, but in the end, you’re going to need a main sewer line replacement. The bottom line is that when you have a major blockage, it’s preferred to have the line replaced rather than repaired because the new line is stronger and will last longer.

Clogged sewer lines are a headache and the sooner you get help, the sooner you can get relief. If you’re in the Marietta, GA area and are thinking you need main sewer line repair, call Snappy Electric, Plumbing, Heating, & Air today at (770) 424-7627 for an appointment.
