How do you fix a broken sewer line near Kansas City?

Pipelining, which involves inserting an inflatable tube coated in epoxy into your sewer line, can be used if the harm to your sewage pipe is minor. The tube is then inflated, pushing against the current line. The epoxy hardens and cures while in contact with the established sewage line, preventing the leak. The sewer line can then be repaired after the inflatable tube has been taken out.

How do you know if your sewer line is busted near Kansas City?

A simple clog that can be cleared with a plunger or drain snake usually causes one fixture to drain slowly. But, if your home's plumbing system is clogged deeper—typically in the sewer line—you will notice that more than one fixture is draining slowly.

Another sign that your sewer line needs repair is an unpleasant odor. There shouldn't ever be any odors coming from your drains. Hazardous sewer gas that is slowly seeping into other areas of your home could be what you can smell and you need to get a professional plumber to help fix the issue.

What causes a sewer line to break near Kansas City?

One of the main causes of a sewer line obstruction is that it hasn't been emptied in a while. If the line becomes clogged, pressure builds inside it and it may burst.

Other common causes of a broken sewer line include rusty old pipes, inferior construction, adverse environmental conditions, and punctures.

Causes Of Sewer Line Damage

You may first notice a problem with a drain that just seems slow after repeated efforts to unclog it. Or wet patches of smelly mud or muck start unexpectedly appearing in your yard. These are both symptoms of a severe problem that you should get checked out right away.

Several problems can cause sewer line issues.

  • Tree roots. The root systems of trees or large bushes are among the most common culprits of a sewer line leak. Trees often have extensive root systems that can wrap around or infiltrate underground pipes, leading to cracks or clogs.
  • Clogging. A home’s sewer system is designed to carry water, waste, toilet paper -- and nothing else. Even products labeled as “flushable” and cooking oils from the kitchen sink can clog up the pipes underground.
  • Corroded pipes. Especially in older systems, pipes tend to decay unless they are regularly maintained. As minerals in the wastewater slowly break down the metal in the lines, they can lead to cracks and leaks.
  • Hard freezes. When water turns to ice, it expands. A sewer line filled with water during a hard winter freeze can cause heaving in the pipes, damaging them or even causing them to burst.
