When Your Sewer Line Needs Attention
Sewage is dirty, foul smelling, a breeding ground for germs, and generally obnoxious. That’s why maintaining a safe, pleasant Westfield, IN home or place of business absolutely requires a sewer line that efficiently and infallibly carries sewage away.
Unfortunately, like everything else built by human hands, sewage systems occasionally stop working as they should. That’s when you need a reputable, knowledgeable sewer company to perform sewer cleaning or sewer repair. We at 24-7 Plumbing pride ourselves on being just such a sewer service, but before we lay out our qualifications and credentials, here’s some basic information on what causes sewer problems and the signs that such problems are on the way.

WHAT CAUSES SEWER LINE PROBLEMS?
A home sewer is the 5 ft. of pipe outside the house. It’s generally from 4 inches to 6 inches across and made of clay tile, cast iron, or PVC. One common problem requiring sewer cleanout or sewer line repair is a soft blockage. Material that has gone down the pipe has lodged there, possibly in combination with natural solids, and the result is a clog. The material often includes toilet paper, dental floss, feminine hygiene products, and wipes. (Naturally, you’re less likely to experience this sewer line cleanout issue if you exercise good judgment as to what belongs down a sewer drain and what doesn’t.)
The weather can also cause sewer repair issues. Freezing and thaws makes the soil shift, and the sewer pipe moves with it. That can crack it or cause a separation. Like everything else, sewer lines deteriorate over time. Eventually they can become corroded, cracked, or otherwise damaged, and that can in turn produce a blockage. Naturally, the older the home or commercial building, the more likely this is to occur
Finally, tree roots can intrude on a sewer line. Clay tile pipes are particularly vulnerable to this because they have joints every 2 to 4 inches, and the joints are vulnerable points of entry. In addition to damaging the pipe, the roots create a blockage or possibly tear the pipe apart entirely and make the main sewer line back up. (Planting trees and bushes well away from the sewer line makes it less likely this particular sewer repair issue will occur.)
