Common Sewer Problems

While normal drain can lead to clogs, frequently slow drains indicate a larger issue in the sewer line. A professional sewer camera inspection can identify the cause and location of the severe blockage. Often times what seems like a sewer issue, may just be a need for drain cleaning

If the problem is your sewer line, some common cause of the problem could be the following:


Tree roots find their way into sewer drain pipes through small cracks or seems. They grow towards the moisture and nutrients found in the line and can cause severe breaks resulting in costly damage. 


Cast iron pipes can corrode over time due to a variety of factors, such as the quality of the water flowing through them, the age of the pipes, and the presence of certain chemicals or minerals.

One of the most common causes of cast iron pipe corrosion is the presence of oxygen and water, which can react with the iron in the pipes and cause it to rust.

Heavy Scale Buildup

Improperly maintained drains and heavy use lines can become damaged from hard scale buildup in the line. Scale can slowly close of flow and cause backups as well as break the pipe. 

Breaks and Deterioration

Aging lines will eventually deteriorate leading to backups from missing sections collapsing. Roots can also cause broken lines, as well as general wear and tear or shifting of the earth. 

At the first signs of backups or when you experience frequent backups, call the team at Plumb Smart, Inc. We can provide an expert diagnosis and offer the best repair or replacement option.

Trenchless Repair

The first step in any home or business sewer line repair or replacement is an in-depth sewer system camera inspection. In many cases, a thorough professional snaking will help make repairs to heavily blocked lines. We use professional-grade equipment to remove roots and descale sewer lines. 

Broken Sewer Line Replacement

When the sewer line has missing sections, is heavily deteriorated, or broken, and it is beyond repair, replacement is the next step. In many cases, we are able to make fast repairs in as little as half a day. 

Traditional sewer replacement requires excavating sections of the line or the entire line and installing a brand new sewer pipe. We have extensive training to safely access the damaged line and will use only the highest quality sewer pipe restoring services.

Traditional dig-ups and replacement can solve minor breaks easily when the line is underneath fresh earth and easily accessible. Replacing entire sewer lines can be more intrusive, but is sometimes the best solution. 

We are able to accurately diagnose the cause of damaged sewer lines and provide multiple options for repair and/or replacement. We offer honest and upfront pricing and perform all work to the highest standards. 

As a family-owned and operated plumbing company, we are committed to delivering exceptional customer service. Our team will treat you like family, perform all services to the highest standards, and protect your property at all times.

Sewer Line FAQs:

Can a cracked clay sewer pipe be patched?

Yes, a cracked clay sewer pipe can be patched using a process called pipe lining, where a new pipe lining is inserted and cured inside the old pipe, effectively sealing the cracks. However, this is a temporary solution, and more extensive repairs or replacement may eventually be necessary.

How do you fix a sewer line cleanout?

Fixing a sewer line cleanout often involves clearing any blockages with a plumbing snake or hydro jetting and repairing or replacing the cleanout plug if damaged. In some cases, the entire cleanout fitting may need replacement.

How to repair PVC sewer line?

Repairing a PVC sewer line typically involves cutting out the damaged section and replacing it with a new piece of PVC pipe using couplings and PVC solvent cement to ensure a watertight seal.

How long do cast iron sewer pipes last?

Cast iron sewer pipes have a lifespan of 50 to 100 years, but this can vary based on factors like usage, soil conditions, and the presence of corrosive materials or chemicals in wastewater.

How do I know if my main sewer line is broken?

Signs of a broken main sewer line include frequent backups, foul odors, unusually lush or soggy patches in the yard, and the sound of constantly running water even when fixtures are not in use.

How do I know if my sewer pipe is leaking?

Indications of a leaking sewer pipe include persistent sewer odor, visible sewage pooling in the yard, slow drains throughout the house, and increased insect or rodent activity near sewer lines.

Why does my sewer smell like sewage?

Other than the fact it’s a sewer, a sewer smelling like sewage could be due to blockages, cracks in the sewer line, venting issues, or a dry P-trap allowing sewer gases to enter the home.

How to fix a sewer line that is leaking?

Fixing a leaking sewer line involves identifying the leak’s location, then either patching it using pipe lining techniques or replacing the damaged section of the pipe.

How do you know if a sewer line is connected?

You can confirm a sewer line is connected by conducting a dye test, where a non-toxic dye is flushed down fixtures and observed at the sewer cleanout or municipal connection point for confirmation.

What is the difference between a sewer line and a drain pipe?

A sewer line carries wastewater away from your home to a municipal sewer system or septic tank, while drain pipes are the internal network within a building that transports water and waste to the sewer line.

How do you replace a sewer line?

Replacing a sewer line involves excavating the old line, removing it, and installing a new pipe. Trenchless methods like pipe bursting or lining can replace the line without extensive excavation.

What causes sewer backup?

Sewer backups can be caused by blockages from grease, invasive tree roots, flushed objects, structural defects in sewer lines, or overloading of the sewer system during heavy rains.
