Signs Your Sewer Line Needs Repair or Replacement

Sewer line breakages or leaks can cause extensive property damage and, in some cases, serious health issues. If your line is beyond repair, the only option is a replacement. You’ll want to contact a professional plumber. No matter the case, they will take care of you.

Some guidelines you’ll want to follow when diagnosing a sewer line are pretty straight forward. You don’t want to do too much without a professional around. 

Signs Your Sewer Line Needs Repair or Replacement

  • Gurgling sounds or air bubbles coming from toilets
  • Yard Flooding
  • No water in the toilets
  • Slow or no bathtub drainage
  • Sewage smell from yard or basement area
  • Sewage backup in tub or toilets

Broken Sewer Line Fixes

The action of repair or replacement is based on the full diagnoses done by a certified plumber. Certain properties call for specific techniques. Even if your property sewer system is unique, you will find general ideas to relate to how plumbers may fix a sewer line.

Burst Pipe Hydraulic

This repair method replaces the old pipe with a new one by inserting it inside the new one. The hydraulic part comes in by breaking apart the more senior line.

Preventative Pipe Maintenance

The smartest maintenance to get involved with is preventative pipe maintenance. By performing regular drainage or cleaning methods, you put yourself ahead of expensive replacements in the future. Consistent inspections and flushing of your system will prevent any big debris or blockages from causing damage.

Pipe Relining

This method involves giving you a protective layer on the new pipe installed. The lining protects from any future invasions to the integrity of the line. It hardens in hours after being installed on a sewer line. Most plumbers highly recommend relining.

Here’s the Deal

If you haven’t grasped this article’s theme thus far, it is imperative to keep up with plumbing maintenance. We might sound like your father, but one small payment before a tsunami will pay off much. If you can, you’ll want to prevent floods or financial crisis. These are just two things that can happen without a routine maintenance schedule.

Many will be scared away by the word “routine,” but this shouldn’t prevent you from completing a schedule. When we say routine, we mean once or twice a year. Routine maintenance is entirely affordable for any household and highly recommended to any homeowner. Maintenance is guaranteed to pay itself off in the long run.

As mentioned before, you can prescribe many methods to your home or business to save some money and check issues at the surface level. You may not have all the equipment required to perform a textbook safety check, yet it will be better than nothing. In most cases, homeowners will choose to opt for a more thorough route to have a professional review of the maintenance. 

If you’re on the fence about whether you should perform safety or upkeep with your system, be sure to inquire about plumbing Durango. Certification and textbook service are two things you want involving sewer maintenance.


Safety When Working with Plumbing and Electricity

Whether you are green in the field or a long time expert, safety should always be your number one thought. Any professional arborist will tell you it’s well worth being a top priority.

We’ve put together a safety log for your use. Even if you consider yourself, “seasoned” you must read into these tips as a refresher. The ego doesn’t belong in an arboriculturist.

Wearing Proper Safety Equipment

  • Safety Glasses
  • Helmet
  • Hearing Protection
  • Gloves
  • Fall and Rescue Harness

It seems rudimentary, but most undermine the importance of this equipment. Quality level is another topic unless it proves to be a considerable safety hazard. Most products put out are tested and well-reviewed. Make sure you adequately research brands and products before buying. The research will ensure you aren’t left falling or seriously harming yourself.

Avoid Electric and Plumbing Hazard

What seems obvious isn’t always so obvious. It would be best if you inspected every working area that you perform cuts on dearly. Sometimes power lines can slip past your initial shakedown. If any of your equipment touches a loose wire or any nearby electricity source, you will be injured. Another vital thing to look out for is gas lines and other miscellaneous plumbing lines.

You may want to call a licensed professional in plumbing or electrician work in some cases. Gas lines may need manipulation, and other extensive possibilities could play their hand. We call industry professionals that we’ve worked with for years. You can check out their plumbing site if you need anything in that field.

Please refer to mandated safety checklists for information on how to ensure your work area is safe. 


It’s always smart to plan and enjoy a clear day while you’re high in the sky. Let’s all remember those rules about trees and lightning.

Another aspect of weather that’s important is wind speed. Weather can vary heavily based on your location. Some areas never really need to worry about this, but others can be very hazardous. The species of tree you are involved with can sway this also.

Tree Age

There are safety guidelines published then get an official appointment by the government or other legal safety organizations. For all of the information given here today, you must understand we are not responsible for any injury relating to accidents you may have while doing tasks related to any tree-cutting. 

That said, the first thing is never to hop on a tree without having predetermined knowledge about its age and lifespan. You don’t want to find yourself surfing down a tree at terminal velocity. 

This information will change depending on the tree cut and the height of the cuts. 

Please refer to official guidelines for more information on this subject.
