Common Issues with Your Sewer Line



Food waste, hair, grease, and all manner of things can get into your sewer line. Some of that is just normal wear and tear, but some is avoidable.

You should never put grease down your sink, it will harden in your pipes and cause major blockages over time, which means major sewer repair down the road.

Unpleasant Odors

Your sewer lines can cause your home to smell bad if not properly cleaned. Bacteria can build up; clogs can happen routinely. The combination of the two over time leads to unpleasant odors.

If you aren’t sure where the odor is coming from, we offer sewer odor detection and elimination services to find and address the issue.

Tree Roots Invading

This is a big problem in the East Texas piney woods. Those beautiful trees can slowly destroy your plumbing as the roots grow into your sewer pipes.

Unfortunately, short of removing all the trees in your yard completely, there isn’t a whole lot of preventative maintenance you can do here. Your best bet is to have your sewer pipes routinely inspected so you can catch the problems while they’re still small.

How Often Should I Have My Sewer Lines Serviced?

Every other year is a good rule of thumb. Older sewer lines or those that are clogged routinely should be serviced annually, though.

Whether you need sewer lines completely replaced or just want to keep up on routine maintenance, you can trust American Plumbing Company to get the job done.
