You probably don’t like to think about the sewer system that serves your house. For the most part, you shouldn’t have to: sewer lines are built to last for years without problems. But even the strongest modern copper lines can sustain damage from the growth of tree roots and shifting ground. Pipes made from older materials can also start to corrode. You may eventually need to call plumbing professionals to fix the sewer line.

Am I Responsible for My Home’s Sewer Line?

This is a common question that plumbing contractors hear. Homeowners are often unsure if the utility company will handle repairing damages to their sewer line since it connects to the municipal sewer system. The answer is that you are responsible for the line from where it leaves your house to the point where it crosses under the property line and connects with the sewer main in the center of the street. If you believe that something is amiss with the sewer line for your home, you have to make arrangements with a professional contractor to fix it.

How to Tell You Need Sewer Line Repair in Glenview

Because the sewer line lies in an underground trench, it isn’t often obvious at first that it has sustained damage from corrosion, tree root infestation, or blockages. There are warning signs to watch for that will tell you that it’s time to call licensed plumbers to inspect the sewer line and see if it needs repairs. Here are a few of them:

  • Odors from the drains: Sewer–like odors emanating from a single drain in your home usually means that the drain has a dried–up p–trap and only needs to have water run through it for a few minutes. But if these odors are coming from multiple drains around your home, it indicates a deeper issue in the plumbing system, possibly clogs or breaks in the sewer line.
  • Damp, foul–smelling spots on the lawn: If the sewer line starts to leak, it will leave unpleasant smelling patches on your property. If you notice such spots, call for professional plumbers right away.
  • Slow and clogged drains: When drains all around your home start to develop clogging (usually beginning in the lowest rooms) it means a back–up in the sewer line. Also watch for strange behavior from the plumbing, such as water coming up through a shower drain when the toilet is flushed.
