Ways to Handle a Broken Sewage Pipe

Since the pipes in your home are largely hidden from view, it isnt always easy to figure out the cause of your plumbing issues. Many homeowners become confused at whether their stubborn toilet or blocked sink is caused by a clog or a damaged sewer line. Since both clogs and pipe damage can create similar symptoms, its important to get a professional inspection as soon as possible. Experienced plumbers have the tools and technology needed to thoroughly examine the condition of your pipes and determine whether you need a clog removal service or a broken pipe replacement. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing we provide dependable plumbing services for homeowners and businesses in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and surrounding communities. Are you wondering what steps should be taken to fix your pipe damage? Here are the important stages of fixing a broken sewage pipe.

Look for Clogs

In many cases, frequent backups are caused by clogs rather than pipe damage. If this is true for you, then removing the blockage with a plumbers snake can help clear the line and refresh your system. However, if the problem persists after removing the clog, or if you notice multiple locations backing up, then you may have a more complicated issue.

Locate the Pipe

If you are concerned that your backups may be due to an underlying problem with your pipes, then it is important to call a local plumber who can conduct a thorough inspection. Finding the right pipe is important, because a damaged pipe that goes unrepaired can cause permanent damage to properties. A professional camera inspection can pinpoint the exact source of your sewage leak or blockage, so you can restore the safety and integrity of your system.

Inspect the Damage and Perform a Repair or Replacement

Once the source has been discovered, its time to determine whether the extent of the damage warrants a replacement or repair. A lot of factors can come into play at this stage such as the materials of the pipes or the presence of invasive roots. If there is simply a small section of broken pipe, then a simple repair or pipe lining installation can restore its function. On the other hand, severe damage or a collapsed sewer line may require a more complicated approach. Whether you need a basic repair or a complete sewer line replacement, hiring qualified plumbers is essential to the long-term health of your pipes.
