We admit that “a brand new sewer line” may not be the most exciting prospect. If this blog were about a “brand new car” or a “brand new career,” it may get the blood pumping a bit harder. Trust us though—if you start to run into serious problems with your sewer line, then your blood will at least be boiling! The sewer line in your home has a nitty, gritty job to do, and you need it to function flawlessly. Unfortunately, nothing, sewer lines included, lasts forever.
The good news is that our Sunny Plumbers are never more than a phone call away. If you suspect that you have a sewer line problem of any kind, we are definitely the professionals that you want to call. Even if you don’t need a full replacement, you’ll benefit greatly from having our pros figure out precisely what it is that you do need. So keep the following in mind, and let us know if your sewer line in Corona is raising a red flag.
First Things First: What Causes Problems?
There are a lot of factors that can play a role in sewer line problems. First and foremost is the age of your pipe. Now, just because a pipe is old doesn’t necessarily mean it will experience problems and require repair. However, the older that this pipe in your home is, the more likely it is that it’s made of an outdated material. If this is the case, it’s really not even worth repairing that pipe if it is a possibility. It makes more sense to just replace the pipe with a newer one entirely.
So age is a factor, but even new pipes may need replacing. It’s possible for pipes to be damaged during new construction and renovations, for instance. It’s even possible that tree roots got into a small crack in a pipe or through a leaking connection, and they’ve really torn your pipe up. Whatever the case, you need to address the issue head on so that more damage to your property doesn’t follow.
What Are My Options?
Like we mentioned above, a very old pipe is probably going to be a prime candidate for a full replacement. If your pipes are newer plastic composite products, however, repairs can definitely be considered. Sometimes a pipe can be relined, or it may be feasible to replace a damaged section of pipe without replacing the entire pipe.
Should you require a full sewer line replacement, working with a professional is definitely an absolute must. By working with our team, you ensure that the job will be done promptly, with the best materials used, but not at the sacrifice of quality. Trust us, the last thing you want is a rush job with your sewer line! Alert us to any squishy lawn spots, trouble with backed up drains and toilets, or sewer odors throughout your home. Prompt attention is for the best.
