If you suspect that your sewer line was improperly placed, reach out to us here at N.W. Sewer & Drain today.
What Can Happen if The Sewer Line is Improperly Placed?
There are specific guidelines that are supposed to be followed when a sewer line is put on a property. If these guidelines are not followed, it can cause a wide range of issues. Some of the issues you may face include: * Chronic pipe clogs * Sewage that backs up on your Washington property * Increased buildup in your pipes
How Can This Be Solved?
The solution for the issues that can come from having your sewer line improperly placed depends on the severity of the issue. Keep in mind, there is no pump or anything in a sewer pipe. The ability for everything you dispose of to make it to the city’s sewer line depends totally on gravity. If the pipe is now pitched back towards the house, or even level with the ground, this needs to be fixed before it turns into a major problem. In some instances, digging can reposition the pipe just enough to restore the correct pitch to the pipe. However, in most cases of a sewer line getting put in wrong in the first place, a sewer line replacement is the best way to remedy the issue. With all the joints between the house and the sewer line of the city, you want to make sure that everything lines up as it should, which can be difficult with just a little digging.
