Water Lines

Damaged or old water lines require replacing. Water line impairments cause a change in the quality and the pressure of water. Signs of crucial water line replacements are frequent leaks, slow drainage, and odors emanating from drain lines. Appliances, dishwashers, and laundry washing machines often experience low water pressure. The color of the tap water will appear to be murky or cloudy. Be sure not to ingest any water and contact a professional to fix the water supply line issue.

Underground utilities comprise gas, sewer, water lines, electrical, and communication cables. Excavation is required to replace, fix, or install new underground utilities. Utility lines need replacing when damaged from aging, corrosion, and tree root punctures. Tree roots grow rampant, structurally damaging, and eventually collapse utility pipes. External pipe corrosion is a product of soil toxins, high acidity, and electrical currents. Internal pipe corrosion occurs when sewage has high acid content, resulting in sulfuric acid. 

The lifespan of water and sewer lines depends on the pipe material. Throughout history, there have been innovative upgrades to the materials used for pipes and utility lines. Material advancements improved human consumption by lowering risk factors and increasing the lifespan of underground utility pipes.

Sewer Lines

When do you need to replace sewer lines? Homeowners requiring sewer line replacements experience draining difficulties, slow draining, or clogging through multiple drains in the house. Toilets often gurgle as a result of air pushing up the line. Foul smells originate inside the house from behind walls, as water damage causes mold and mildew in the basement or cellar. Such conditions invite pests and increase their populations. Exterior property signs of sewage line damage are a foul scent emanating from the yard. Sewage smells outside are gasses seeping through the soil from a broken sewer pipe.

Prolonging a sewer line issue increases the damage capacity and leads to an emergency project to repair. Serious sewage issues cause backing up of the waste line into the originating source, residence, or building. Have a professional evaluate any difference experienced before it is a worst-case scenario.
