Apparent Signs of a Collapsed Sewer Pipe

Underground pipes can deteriorate or collapse due to several reasons, such as age, root intrusion, ground shifts, or improper installation. Whatever the cause, timely detection of the problem and its resolution is crucial to prevent further damage and restore the proper functioning of your sewer system. RAM Plumbing, the trusted expert in trenchless sewer repair in Tucson, AZ, shares some common indications of a collapsed sewer pipe.

Foul Odors

Unlike typical sewage smells that could result from minor clogs, these odors will persist and grow stronger over time. This is because waste is no longer being transported properly and instead accumulating and decomposing in the damaged area. Let a professional plumber perform an in-depth sewer line inspection and determine whether trenchless sewer replacement is a viable option.

Slow Drainage

While a single slow-draining fixture can often be attributed to a localized blockage, persistent slow drainage throughout the house generally indicates a more serious issue with the main sewer line. If not addressed promptly, this could escalate into a full-blown sewage backup. Avoid potential health hazards and property damage by contacting a trenchless pipe repair specialist to diagnose and fix the problem.

Lush Patches of Grass

If you have an underground sewer line running through your yard, keep an eye out for areas with unusually lush patches of grass. This could be a result of leaking sewage acting as a fertilizer and promoting the growth of vegetation in that area. Trenchless pipe replacement is often suitable for addressing collapsed sewer pipes without disturbing your yard or landscaping.
