Rock Hill Water & Sewer Line Repair & Replacement

Reliable Plumbing Maintenance & Repairs in Rock Hill

Water and sewer lines are the two basic components of your whole plumbing system. While the former brings in clean water, the latter moves the dirty water out. If one of these pipelines encounters a problem, however, it can easily put your entire household on a standstill. If this is the current situation you’re facing, remember to call Precision Plumbing, Heating & Air. Our plumbing experts can promptly come to your location and determine the exact source of the problem so we can recommend the right solution.

Common Issues with Water and Sewer Lines:

  • Clogged sewer lines, usually from tree roots
  • Corroded or damaged pipes
  • Burst pipes

While these problems may be hard to detect at first, you may carefully observe for warning signs such as standing or slow-draining water, low water pressure, skyrocketing water bill, noisy pipes, sewage backups, and water pooling on your lawn.

Understanding Sewer Line Bellies and Water Pooling

If you have standing water in your sewer line, odds are you're dealing with a sewer line belly. This problem is caused when the line starts to sag, creating a pocket for water and sediment to stagnate. Bellies are most often caused when the line was poorly installed or the installation was poorly planned and didn't account for the correct slope, bad materials were used, or the bedding wasn't properly compacted.

Potential Causes of Sewer Line Bellies:

  • Temperature fluctuation
  • Excessive rain
  • Severe heatwaves
  • Tree root growth
  • Earthquakes

It's important to schedule regular inspections of your sewer line to prevent this issue from occurring, or at the very least identifying the problem before it can turn into a disaster.

7 Warning Signs Your Sewer Line Needs to Be Replaced

Maintaining a functional sewer line is essential for any home, as issues with the sewer system can lead to extensive damage and expensive repairs. Here are seven indicators that your sewer line may need replacement:

  • Recurring Backups and Clogs: If your drains frequently back up or get clogged, especially in the basement or lowest part of your house, it might signal a major problem with the main sewer line. While occasional clogs are normal, persistent issues suggest a more serious underlying problem.
  • Slow Draining: Drains that take a long time to clear might indicate a blockage in the sewer line. If multiple drains in your home are slow, it's a sign that the problem is widespread.
  • Bad Odors: Sewer lines should be airtight, so if you notice foul smells of sewer gas in your home or yard, it’s a strong indication of a crack or leak in the sewer line.
  • Extra Green Spots on Your Lawn: Sewage acts as a fertilizer, so unusually lush and green patches in your yard could be due to a leaking sewer line. This can also create soggy areas in your yard.
  • Mold and Mildew: Increased humidity from a broken sewer line can lead to mold and mildew growth in your home. This not only damages your property but can also pose health risks.
  • Cracks in Foundation or Sinkholes: Major sewer line issues can cause structural damage. Cracks in your foundation, walls, or sinkholes in your yard may indicate a leaking sewer line compromising your property's stability.
  • Rodent and Insect Problems: Rodents and insects are attracted to the smell of sewage. An increase in pests might suggest a broken sewer line, providing easy access for them to enter your home.

Actions to Take If You Notice These Signs

Contact a professional plumber immediately if you notice any of these warning signs. They can perform a detailed inspection, often using a camera to check the interior of the sewer line and assess the damage. Early detection may allow for less invasive repairs, but in many cases, replacing the sewer line may be necessary to prevent further damage and avoid expensive repairs.

Key Considerations Before Sewer or Water Line Replacement

Our Rock Hill plumbers know that sewer or water line replacement is a huge undertaking that would require you to pay more.

Essential Factors to Evaluate for Plumbing Replacement:

  • Proximity of the Sewer Main: The closer it is to your property, the less it will cost to replace your line.
  • Location of the House Trap: If it’s buried in your yard, it can be easily removed when we replace your lines. If it’s underneath your basement, however, you’ll have to pay more to replace your plumbing.
  • Obstacles to Consider: Mature trees, your driveway, and concrete patios or walkways could complicate the excavation process and increase the cost.

​​​​​It’s important to keep these considerations in mind if you’re working on a tight budget. Contact our Rock Hill sewer line repair technicians for more information about water and sewer line replacement in the Rock Hill. Our plumbers are standing by to answer any questions you may have.
