How Do We Conduct Sewer Replacement and Inspection?
Sewer inspection is a difficult task and it should only be conducted by licensed and trained plumbing experts. Sewer lines are narrow spaces that are hard to reach and in the past inspection was always a tedious and dangerous activity. However, with the appearance of sewer line video cameras, inspecting underground sewers has become much easier.
Before we perform a repair or installation, we always make sure to check the state of your sewers with a specially tailored sewer camera. By mounting a camera on a flexible rod, we are able to maneuver through snake-like underground sewer lines. This allows us to locate the cause of your sewer problem easily and make sure that we are able to take the necessary steps to repair and potentially replace your sewer properly.
When Should You Consider Sewer Line Replacement in Memphis?
Sewer line replacement is a lot of work, but sometimes certain households have to consider it. Take a look at some of the most common reasons for replacing sewer lines:
- Sewers that get blocked frequently and require repair on a regular basis
- Sewers that have been damaged for some reason and have become worn out and corroded
- Sewers that are simply old and require too much work to be repaired entirely
What are the Common Causes of Sewer Line Breaks?
There are quite a few factors that can cause a broken or ruptured sewer line, including:
Pipes made of galvanized steel or lead rust over time, compromising their overall structural integrity that may result in leaks.
- Tree root penetration
Tree root penetration is the leading cause of sewer line breaks. When the surrounding soil dries up, tree roots will always search for a new source of water. The temperature difference between the underground pipes and the soil causes condensation to form, making it a dependable water source. It may be just a matter of time before the tree roots put enough pressure to penetrate and damage the pipe.
- Severe blockages
A build-up of caked-on minerals, dirt, and household debris can cause pressure that can, in turn, cause pipes to burst. This is especially true of old pipes.
- Ground shifting or settlement
As the earth settles under a house throughout the years, pipes that are weakened by time are prone to breaking. Construction work with loud ground vibrations may also be a culprit.
Which One Should It Be: Repair or Replacement?
When dealing with a main sewer line issue, there are several factors to consider whether repair or replacement is best. It is imperative that you take into consideration the age of your pipes, the material that your pipes are made of, the likelihood of future repairs, the extent of damage, and, most importantly, the long-term cost-effectiveness.
If your home’s main sewer line consists of pipes that are already fragile, and are made of outdated materials, it may be prone to future damage that can be quite extensive. This may be the best time to schedule a full system replacement.
