When do you need to replace your sewer line? Sewage backups, slow drainage, and even wet spots in your yard can indicate damage to your sewer line. These are all signs that it is in need of repair. Common forms of damage can include, cracks, blockages, root intrusions, corrosion, leaks, and bellied pipes.
What You Can Expect from Our Professionals in Austin, TX & Surrounding Areas
With sewer line repairs and replacements, a trench is dug to expose the main sewer line. After the damaged area is located and fixed, the trench is then backfilled. This is a very effective option, and in some cases, the only option if large portions of the sewer line need to be replaced. We’re also happy to provide multiple financing options so you don’t have to wait for your sewer line repairs.
You may need a sewer line replacement to address:
Cracks from shifting ground or severe temperature changes
Blockages from grease, food material, and un-flushable toiletries
Corrosion, which will prevent flow and can cause pipes to collapse

Signs Your Sewer Line is Broken
Functional plumbing is an important part of every household, but there’s more to it than the pipes and drains in the house. All the plumbing in your house disposes of used water through a sewer line. Like the rest of your plumbing, the sewer line can experience problems, which are a major concern. Should your home experience one of these signs, you should call us to get your sewer line replaced or fixed. If left unchecked, a broken sewer line can flood your basement, burst your pipes, or even cause sewage backups!
Here are the signs of a broken sewer line:
If the water in your sink and other plumbing is taking its sweet time going down the drain, that might be a sign of a damaged sewer pipe. The problem might just be a clogged pipe, but if other drains are experiencing problems, the clog is likely much deeper in the sewer line. Some of the things that can cause this include tree roots, cracks in the pipe, and flushed objects clogging the pipe. At worst, this could lead to sewage coming back up the pipes.
High Water Bills
If you notice that your water bills are steadily rising and you haven’t changed your water usage much, you might have a sewer leak. Higher water bills are often a sign that there’s a leak draining your water somewhere. You can trust Daniel’s Plumbing & Air Conditioning to find and seal up the cracks causing your heightened water bills.
Functional sewer pipes are airtight, so if you’re noticing foul smells coming from your drains, your yard, or around the house, a pipe might be cracked. Daniel’s Plumbing & Air Conditioning can fix or replace that damaged pipe and keep your property smelling fresh.
Pools of Septic Water
A big sign something is wrong with your sewer line is if you find water where it shouldn’t be. If the sewer line is damaged, standing pools of foul-smelling water can show up in your house or yard.
