Sewer Cracks, Sewer Breaks, and Root Intrusions
Sewer damage is a plumbing issue that can be caused by a few different things.
- Many houses built before 1980 will have weaker and outdated materials used in their sewer lines. Concrete and ceramic sewer lines are good examples. These lines can deteriorate over time and create cracks or breaks where groundwater, dirt, and other materials are let in, and sewage can be leaked out. Bellevue has a mix of old and new homes, so the material may or may not be an issue for your home.
- The ground’s natural settling and shifting can cause breaks and cracks in your sewer, and in some cases, a complete collapse of the sewer line. This could partially or completely close off your sewage flow.
- Another issue for the sewer system is root intrusion. This is when tree roots grow into or through the side sewer line. This causes cracks and leaks, plus the roots clog up the line and stop the flow of your waste. The older sewer materials are more susceptible, but it can happen to any line. If you’ve ever heard of a company using the name “Rooter”, it’s in reference to the grinding up of roots in the line. It’s better to get a new sewer line to halt the issue altogether.
- We have the plumbers and sewer experts to help you choose whether a repair or complete replacement of your main drain line is best. From start to finish you will see the benefit of our expertise in doing the sewer repair Bellevue area residents have been using for decades.
