When Does a Sewer Line Need to be Replaced?

As a homeowner, you rely on your sewer line to dispose of wastewater and keep your home safe and sanitary. However, like any other part of your home’s plumbing system, sewer lines can deteriorate and fail over time. Here are some signs that your sewer line may need to be replaced.

When Does a Sewer Line Need to be Replaced

Beware These Telltale Signs

Persistent clogs

If you’re experiencing frequent or persistent clogs in your drains or toilets, it could be a sign of a blockage in your sewer line. If snaking or hydro jetting doesn’t clear the clog, it may be an indication that your sewer line is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Slow drainage

If your sinks, showers, or toilets are slow to drain or backup frequently, it may be a sign of a sewer line issue. A damaged sewer line can cause water to back up into your home’s plumbing system, leading to slow drainage and backups.

Foul odors

If you notice a foul odor coming from your drains or your yard, it could be a sign of a damaged sewer line. A damaged sewer line can cause sewage to seep into your yard, leading to unpleasant odors.

Age of the sewer line

Sewer lines have a lifespan of about 50 years. If your home is older and has never had its sewer line replaced, it may be time to consider replacing it before it fails and causes damage to your home.
