Sewer and Water Line Replacement

Protecting your home's value means ensuring that your water and sewer lines are fully in working order. Plumbing problems can quickly get away from you, and replacing them yourself is often out of the question. There are many building codes and laws around working with water and sewer lines. You need a trusted plumbing partner who can assure that you won't be dealing with leaks and backups due to faulty installation or repairs. Here's some signs that your water or sewer line may be in need of repair or replacement. Before calling a plumber for either issue, you need to determine whether the issue is at your home or in the city's water and sewer infrastructure. If your neighbors aren't experiencing any problems, it's a good bet that the problem is within your home. 

Signs of Sewer Line Damage

The signs of sewer line damage aren't hard to find, and can include standing water in your yard around your sewer line or sinks and toilets that drain slowly. You may also notice mold growth in your home or the smell of sewage in your home or yard. Signs of sewer line damage may also include cracks in your foundation caused by settling in your home or indentations in your lawn or under pavers in your back yard near the sewer line. 

Signs of Water Line Damage

While not having access to water within or outside your home is a key indicator of damage to your water lines, there are also other clues that could mean you need to call a plumber. An odd smell in your water, dirty water coming from faucets and excessive air bubbles may also point to a need to call in the professionals. It's important to act quickly as soon as you see a problem as you and your family could easily become ill from ingesting lead from a broken line, for instance. 

There are not many fixes for broken water or sewer lines that can be accomplished by homeowners.

Our hot water heater stopped working this week. We called Matt and he and his team came out and quickly figured out what the issue was, told us, and were able to repair it easily. He did a great job of explaining our options. I definitely recommend giving Conner Plumbing a call!
