Sewer lateral symptoms:
Foul sewer odor – Odour is usually kept at bay by water contained in drain traps or in other designs by vents. These only allow the flow of air in one direction (away from the building). If this water contained in the drain trap evaporates over time, like in unused sinks, the sewer odors escape and rise up through the drain into the building. On the other hand, if vent pipes are not properly joined or have been damaged, the pressure from the outdoor air could push sewer odors back into your property.
Overgrown patches of grass
Faulty sewer laterals could leak water into your yard. The additional moisture and nutrients cause a significant growth in the vegetation of the surrounding area.
Backups in the indoor plumbing
Sewer lines tend to back up due to blockages and they usually occur at the lowest parts of the drain. Blockages could be due to root intrusion, debris from the root intrusion or from inside the property itself, the buildup of grease or a crushed pipe. However, if the occurrence of backups are isolated, we can pinpoint the exact problem are repair the damage. Keep in mind that frequent occurrence of backups may be as a result of damaged sewer lines, whatever the case, we will fix it.
Growth of mold
Mold growth can be a sign of breakages in your plumbing. Instead of breaking down an entire wall, we can trace the exact spot where the leak is occurring and resolve this issue.
This can be a sign that there is the formation of a blockage. This eventually leads to sewage backups so you’ll definitely have to get it checked. Chemical drain cleaners may not solve this problem entirely and they may actually aggravate the situation.
Indentation In the Lawn or Under Pavers
This may be a sign of a break in the sewer line. This causes saturation of the ground causing the soil to dissipate. Your lawn may then manifest an indentation or dip right above the location your sewage line runs.
This is something to be keen on as in some extreme cases, signs of sewer pipe deterioration include foundation problems like; cracks in the foundation slab, foundation settlement, and in sometimes sinkholes.
Septic Waste Pooling
This is obviously a sign that you have a broken sewer pipe. It may stem from a number of reasons and that is where we come in. Often, the problem area is right under the pool of sewer water but with our help, you can know for sure.
Rodent Problem & Insect Infestation
A sudden infestation of rodents and cockroaches may be a sign of a break in your sewer lines. Rats usually thrive in sewers and can easily make their way from neighboring properties to the pipes within your property. A crack as small as a quarter is enough for rats to pass.
