What Causes Columbia Homes to Require a Sewer Line Repair or Replacement
Your sewer is the medium by which the waste is transported from your home down to the city’s aggregate sewer system. There are a number of ways in which your sewer system can become faulty, with damage to the piping being the most common. A sewer is just like any other part of your home and requires maintenance frequently, if you do not want to find yourself bogged down with waste material.
Common Sewer Line Issues Facing Columbia Homeowners
• One common issue that many of clients call us to help with is that of pipe weathering. Both residential and commercial establishments typically use sewer pipe lines made with cast iron. The material has a shelf life of about 30 years after which it begins to wither away due to the constant flow of water and waste material through them.
• Pipe corrosion is another issue that needs to be rectified immediately. Your waste material consists of a number of chemicals that react with sewer pipes over time, causing them to corrode. In many cases, this material can build up around the circumference of your pipes, thereby clogging them as well.
• A less commonplace problem is that of intrusion by soil and tree roots. When this occurs, it is a sure fire sign that your piping has gaping holes that need to be sealed immediately.
