Common Underground Sewer Line Issues

Sewer lines run underground to keep them protected from damage and to keep humans, animals, and soil protected from exposure to the sewage running through the lines. Despite being underground, they are still susceptible to damage and some of the more common causes include: 

Broken Lines

Underground sewer lines are incredibly durable and some of the thickest pipes in your plumbing system. However, they are no match for earthquakes, tree roots, and mechanical construction damage. Broken sewer lines can range from large gashes that result in spewing black water to small cracks that result in leaks that remain undetected until it affects the area around the leaking pipe.

Bellied Pipes

Bellied pipes occur when sections of the pipeline sink in slightly due to shifting or settling earth, creating uneven dips in the pipeline. The result is a collection spot for debris and waste that blocks the flow of water and sewage.

Broken or Leaking Pipe Joints

Underground water or sewer line lines that aren’t secured or sealed properly have vulnerable joints that can start to leak over time. Pipe joints are more susceptible to breaks when the earth shifts or freezes. 

Sewer Blockages

Sewer blockages are more common than they should be and happen when there is a buildup of non-flushable items including wipes, hair, grease, and other hygiene products. These clogs need to be removed to prevent total line blockage.

Pipe Corrosion

Sewer line pipe corrosion is not as common in newer areas where pipes are made differently, but older sewer lines are more susceptible to corrosion due to exposure to harsh chemicals. Chemicals that can erode sewer lines include cleaning agents, products meant to relieve clogs, and even oxidizing pipe metal. Corrosion weakens pipe walls and can result in leaks. 

If you suspect a sewer line leak in the Denver Metro area or Boulder, it’s time to give the plumbing experts at Rooter Guy a call today. 

Sewer Line Frequently Asked Questions

How Can I Tell If It’s My Sewer Line Backing Up?

Great question! Sewer lines often give warning signs that there is trouble, and, if you’re listening, you can prevent big problems by correcting the small issues. Some warning signs that there are sewer line issues include:

  • Slow-draining sinks and bathtubs in more than one place in the house
  • A gurgling sound when toilets are flushed 
  • There is water in the basement floor drain or the bathtub/shower drain when toilets are flushed
  • You regularly have to plunge toilets
  • Sewer smell coming from drains.

What Can I Do to Prevent Sewer Line Damage?

If professionally installed and used correctly, sewer lines remain relatively low maintenance. To support your sewer system and prevent damage, there are a few things you can do: 

  • Don’t plant trees over underground sewer lines
  • Don’t flush anything other than toilet paper and excrement
  • Get routine inspections and cleaning

If My Sewer Line is Damaged, What Are My Options?

With newer technology and plumbing techniques, you’ve got a variety of options for sewer line repair including digging a trench to repair pipes externally or trenchless internal repair and alignments. Depending on the type and extent of the damage will determine what options are the best. Your Denver plumber can conduct a camera inspection and develop a treatment and repair plan with you.
