Frequently Asked Questions

Four signs that your sewer line may be broken include:

  1. Persistent Drain Clogs: Frequent clogs or slow drainage in multiple drains throughout your home can indicate a sewer line issue.

  2. Sewage Backups: If sewage backs up into your drains or toilets, it’s a clear sign of a sewer line problem.

  3. Unpleasant Odors: Foul odors, especially in your yard near the sewer line, can indicate a break or leakage.

  4. Lush, Unexplained Lawn Patches: An unusually green and lush area of your yard, particularly near the sewer line’s path, can suggest a sewage leak fertilizing the grass.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s crucial to contact a professional plumber for a thorough inspection and timely repairs.

You can tell if your main sewer line is clogged if you notice the following signs:

  1. Multiple Drain Clogs: When several drains in your home, such as sinks, tubs, and toilets, are slow to drain or clogged simultaneously, it suggests a main sewer line blockage.

  2. Gurgling Sounds: If you hear gurgling or bubbling noises from drains when using water fixtures, it can be a sign of air trying to escape due to a clog.

  3. Backups in Lower Drains: Water or sewage backing up into lower-level drains, such as basement floor drains or shower drains, is a strong indicator of a main sewer line issue.

  4. Foul Odors: Unpleasant sewage odors emanating from drains or sewer cleanouts in your yard can be a sign of a clog.

  5. Toilet Issues: Frequent toilet backups, especially when using other water fixtures, may indicate a main sewer line blockage.

If you observe these signs, it’s crucial to address the issue promptly to prevent further damage. Contact a professional plumber to assess and clear the clog in your main sewer line.

Deciding whether to repair or replace your sewer line depends on factors like the damage extent, line age, and budget. If damage is minor or budget constraints exist, repair might suffice. However, extensive damage, multiple issues, or an old system may necessitate replacement for long-term reliability. Consult a professional plumber for expert advice.

Sewer line life expectancy varies based on factors like material, soil, and maintenance:

  1. Cast Iron: Lasts 50-100+ years if well-maintained.

  2. Clay: Typically around 50-60 years.

  3. Plastic (PVC and ABS): Can last 50+ years.

  4. Orangeburg: About 30-50 years.

Regular maintenance and soil conditions affect lifespan. A plumber’s inspection helps assess the need for repair or replacement.

The time to unclog a main sewer line varies based on factors like clog severity, location, and tools used. Minor clogs near access points may take about an hour, while more complex clogs further down the line can take several hours or more. Experienced plumbers may work faster. If the clog has caused damage, additional time may be needed for repairs. It’s crucial to have a plumber assess the situation for accurate time and cost estimates.

  1. Plunger Method: a. Ensure there’s enough water in the toilet bowl to cover the plunger. b. Create a tight seal with the plunger over the drain opening. c. Vigorously push and pull the plunger to create suction and dislodge the blockage. d. Continue until the water starts to drain.

  2. Auger or Snake Method: a. Insert the auger or snake into the drain. b. Rotate it while gently pushing to break through the blockage. c. Slowly pull out the auger, bringing the blockage with it.

These methods work well for minor blockages near the drain opening. For deeper or more complex clogs, consider professional help. Always use safety precautions and wear gloves.

Yes, exposure to a broken sewer line can pose health risks. A broken sewer line can release harmful bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens into the environment, which can lead to various health issues, including:

  1. Gastrointestinal Infections: Contact with sewage-contaminated water can cause stomach and intestinal infections, leading to symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach cramps.

  2. Respiratory Problems: Sewage odors and airborne particles from a broken sewer line can irritate the respiratory system and worsen conditions like asthma or bronchitis.

  3. Skin Infections: Direct contact with contaminated water can lead to skin infections or irritation.

  4. Eye and Ear Infections: Exposure to contaminated water can also result in eye and ear infections.

  5. Vector-Borne Diseases: Sewage can attract disease-carrying pests like flies and mosquitoes, potentially increasing the risk of vector-borne diseases.

To protect your health, it’s crucial to avoid contact with sewage-contaminated areas, ensure proper sanitation, and seek professional help to repair and clean up any sewage leaks or spills promptly.

Sewer lines can collapse due to aging, material degradation, root infiltration, ground shifts, corrosion, heavy traffic, blockages, or poor installation. Regular maintenance helps prevent collapse.

Using a water hose to unclog a sewer line is generally ineffective for significant or deep clogs. While it may work for minor clogs near the drain, main sewer lines are larger and deeper underground. Professional equipment like sewer augers or hydro-jetters is typically needed for stubborn clogs. Attempting to use a hose for main sewer line blockages may not work and could cause further issues. Consult a professional plumber for such problems.

Sewer pipe relining costs vary widely based on factors like pipe length, diameter, damage extent, access, materials, labor, permits, and additional services. Prices can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Get a quick quotes for M-Con for accurate estimates.
