Sewage, it’s gross. You don’t want to see it, and you definitely don’t want to smell it. So, when you suspect there might be a leak in your sewage line, you want to immediately get it checked out. The best way to discover what is happening in your pipes is by scheduling a sewer camera inspection. With state-of-the-art video equipment, here at Indiana Leak Detection, we are able to quickly diagnose the source of your sewer line leak and repair it.
Common Sewer Line Leak Causes
Cracks, Holes, and Misaligned Pipes
When your sewer line is cracked, broken, or not installed correctly you will know. Wastewater will begin to pool in your yard, an unmistakable odor will engulf your home, your utility bills will increase, and your foundation may become cracked. A camera inspection will provide clear images of the location of your damaged or misaligned piping, so professional plumbers can quickly resolve your sewer line problem.
Tree Root Infiltration
Tree root infiltration will cause mainline backups. A mainline backup will manifest in multiple drains simultaneously. So, if you’re experiencing a backup every time you use the restroom, take a shower, or wash your dishes, the chances are high that you have a compromised sewage line.
Mold and Fungus
Broken sewage lines raise the humidity levels in your home. And, mold loves humid climates. Mold can foster and spread throughout your home by means of your sewer line, so you will want to repair this fast if you notice a spike in your indoor humidity. Mold in your pipes can be effectively caught before it spreads, with sewer camera line inspection.
Clogs and Blockages
Grease, waste, and sanitary products will cause sewer line issues. By inspecting your pipes, you can assess what items are forming clogs, and work to improve on what you flush, pour, and shove down your home’s drains.
Once the cause of your clog is identified, we will be able to recommend a budget-friendly course of action for your repair. If your sewer line is clogged or filled with tree roots, hydrojetting is suggested. If your sewer line is cracked, we urge sewer line replacement, as patching up pipes is only temporary, and will cost you more money in the long run.
