Roger’s Plumbing, a local plumbing company based in Austin, Texas, has provided information on their website relevant to potential sewer line problems that may arise. The company serves both residential and commercial customers within a service territory extending through the greater Austin area.
The plumbing company’s discussion of potential sewer line problems begins with an acknowledgement of how extensive they can be. Roger’s Plumbing notes that problems with a sewer line require extensive clean-up, relative to other plumbing problems. Roger’s goes on to point out that not only is the clean-up of sewer line problems a considerable undertaking, the repair process for a sewer line problem is also frequently greater than what is required for other, more routine plumbing issues.
The location of the sewer line, being outside the home, is then cited by Roger’s Plumbing as a contributing factor to potential issues with these pipes. Because of the reality of the sewer line being located outside the home, the local plumbing business reports, many homeowners and businesses do not consider it to be a part of their home or building’s plumbing system in the same way that they consider the internal plumbing pipes and fixtures to be a part of their plumbing system. As a result of this thinking, people have a tendency to consider the sewer line, according to Roger’s Plumbing, as outside of their responsibility to maintain and repair. This is not the case, however, and Roger’s advises readers of its website that even when a home is connected to a municipal sewer system its sewer line is considered part of the individual home plumbing system. As a result, the section of the sewer line that connects your home’s plumbing system to the larger sewer system is the homeowner’s liability.
For this reason, Roger’s Plumbing devotes a significant section of its website to sewer line issues in which they encourage customers to have a professional plumber inspect a sewer line that is suspected to be blocked, clogged or backed up. Roger’s Plumbing also lists common causes of sewer line issues. These common sources of problems include pipe corrosion, plant root infiltration, freezing weather, sewer line breakages, cracks and collapses, shifting soil and deteriorating sewer line material.
Symptoms of these sewer line issues, which Roger’s Plumbing continually expresses their capacity to deal with, include puddles, foul odors, dirty or foul-smelling water and wet patches on the lawn. Roger’s Plumbing advises those who suspect a sewer line problem to have it investigated by a professional to ensure the mitigation of costs and damages.
