Signs You’ve got a Broken Sewer Pipeline
Does a pungent odor escape from your drains? Those sewer smells – at least some of the detectable ones from natural gases such as sulkane, methane and hydrogen sulfide normally would be diluted if your pipelines were working. Aside from the stench of garbage, some gaseous odors are not even detectable to humans. Whether a gas you can smell or not, one of the most dangerous signs of a broken sewer lines are these substances traveling through the air.
Other signs of a broken sewer line include low water pressure in one or more taps, rising damp patches on walls or around doors, and high quantities of water used in shore periods. If your toilet or sink runs continuously, that also indicates a problem.
Line Obstruction & Unclogging Your Main Sewer Line
If a sewage backs up, it indicates possible breakage somewhere in the pipeline. This happened for one of several reasons: You tried to snake it with a large hose or other tool too wide for use with your pipes, you left the toilet bowl full of water, or excess pressure from an irrigation system could be one of the reasons. It also could because of too much hair, food, grease or sentiments.

Then, we’ll proceed with whatever action you approve of.

Broken or Damaged Clay Pipe Repair & Replacement
Chances of having clay pipes in your home or on your business property increase if the building is more than 100 years old. Believe it or not, they were thought of as being durable and dependable, and they surprisingly still have a favorable price-to-performance ratio, and they don’t rust. Furthermore, they resist absorb less heat than metal pipes and prevent slowing of water flow. The only downside is that they are porous and could crack easily, especially during a severe, violent storm. Your Certified Sewer & Drain specialist will discuss with you all options for repair and replacement when you see us or talk to us the first time.
Cast Iron Sewer Pipe Repair & Replacement
Many homes were built with cast iron pipes before 1970, and these were popular during the 1930s-1940s. Repairs usually consist of either stretching the wall, cutting the pipe, and inserting a coupling sleeves into both ends of the cut; or cutting out sections to create comparable lengths and welding them together to form an “X”. Seams should then be coated.
Replacement options also exist- first replacing deteriorated joints with machined fittings. Then, we replace branch connections with copper piping in PVC trunk lines, for example. Another option is to add polyurethane (“PUR”) joint compounds for non-pressure connecting plates. It’s rare that the entire system needs to be replaced, but for your peace of mind, we could perform an overhaul of your entire sewer line and pipes if you want.
PVC & ABS Sewer Pipe Repair, Replacement
PVC pipes are more flexible than ABS pipes, but the ABS material withstands frigid temperatures. On the other hand, warping of ABS pipes sometimes occurs when exposed to the sun. It can be frustrating trying to decide which of the two to use. If you’re not sure, we’ll recommend PVC for you for now because PVC doesn’t rust like metal pipes, and it’s less of a financial investment. They will last 25-40 years, which is a significant chunk of time.
Orangeburg Sewer Pipe Replacement
Orangeburg pipes were built in homes from circa 1945-1972. The makers meant well, in that they don’t rust. However, this piping, made partially out of layers of paper, only lasted a maximum of 10 years. However, people during this time and possibly earlier used what they had to use during harsh economic times and war shortages. They crush easily, and we can discuss replacement options with you.

Sewer cameras can detect tree roots that broke through the pipe’s exterior, a drain indoor or outdoor blocked drain, and objects obstructing your pipelines. For example, you could even have your children’s toys, or your metal jewelry caught in your sewer lines. Once we know the cause, we can take appropriate action.
