When Do I Need a New Sewer Line?
Only a qualified plumber can tell for sure if you need a sewer line replacement in Brooklyn. However, the following signs are good indicators that it’s time to check out your line and see if it needs to be replaced.
- You have overgrown spots in your yard. These can occur when there’s a break in your sewer line because plants thrive on some of the chemicals in sewage.
- You have a persistent mold and/or mildew problems. These thrive in damp places. If your sewer is leaking, it gives them the moisture they need to continue growing.
- You have sinkholes in your yard. If sewage is seeping into the soil under your yard, it can cause that soil to compress and whatever is on top of it sinks. The only way to eliminate the problem is to fix the sewer line.
