Not sure if you need sewer line replacement? Although your sewer line might require an occasional repair, sometimes you’re better off replacing it completely. HB McClure Home Service Team provides one of the best sewer line replacement services in the Baltimore, Maryland area—we know what to look for and how to fix it!
An Older Home
If you have an older home, chances are the sewer line is made of clay pipes, which can last up to 50 years! But even so, this doesn’t mean you’re out of the woods and into the clear just because your pipes should last. If you’ve recently purchased an older or remodeled home or your home has a history of plumbing problems, you could be at a greater risk for sewer problems and require sewer line replacement. Pay attention to things like your water pressure, water levels, and other water damage—in older homes these indicate sewer problems or sewer line replacement.
Changing Water Levels
Changing water levels, usually in toilets, is another sign you need sewer line replacement. If the sewer is clogged, the water levels will fluctuate. Keep track of days when your toilet has a normal water level and days it’s too high or too low. There could be an underlying problem with your plumbing that requires sewer line replacement.
Do you notice it takes much longer for your sink or tub to drain than it used to? Slow-draining tubs also imply you need sewer line replacement. As pipes age and get clogged, they do a poorer job of draining water. And while you can use drain-cleaning chemicals in the short-term, over time these products erode your pipes. Schedule routine maintenance checks with HB McClure Home Service Team—this way you can avoid sewer line replacement altogether!
Water Damage & Stains
Have you recently noticed rings of water or water stains around your basement drains? If so, call HB McClure Home Service Team to determine the problem and if you need sewer line replacement.
You might also notice water damage around the foundation of your house. Cracked or broken sewer lines let moisture leak to parts of your home where it’s not supposed to—namely the walls and the foundation. Over time, this can destroy your home’s fundamental structure, leading to more invasive and costly repairs. Investing in proper sewer line inspection, like those provided by HB McClure Home Service Team, ensures you won’t deal with any of these plumbing nightmares!
