Sewer Pipe Damage – Is Your Lawn Wet?

Apr 27, 2018

Sewer Pipe Damage: Is Your Lawn A Swamp?

All of the pipes in the drainage system for your home or office usually lead to a large pipe called the “lateral connection”. The lateral connection is buried beneath the earth and travels to the municipal water system. You are responsible for ensuring that your lateral connection is intact and functioning properly. If you see that your lawn is wet for extended periods of time, you may be experiencing sewer pipe damage with the lateral connection.

Signs of Sewer Pipe Damage

There are many signs of sewer pipe damage, but none more obvious than a part of your yard turning into a bit of a swamp. If you see large wet spots or sunken areas in your lawn, you may have sewer pipe damage. If you experience foul smells from a certain part of your yard, this may be another sign of sewer pipe damage.

Why Did My Lateral Connection Break?

The most common reason for a lateral connection to leak is that it is simply old and/or made of outdated material such as clay. This section of your drainage system works very hard each day and over time it can break down leaving you with sewer pipe damage that needs to be fixed immediately. Tree roots can also create damage to this section of piping, as can major obstructions inside of the pipe.

The Dangers

Sewer pipe damage can bring several dangers with it. Raw sewage is loaded with harmful bacteria. This bacteria is not only dangerous to humans, but it can also kill plants, trees, and large sections of your lawn. The smell of raw sewage attracts all types of pests. These pests will quickly find their way into your home. If you have sewer pipe damage under the foundation of your home, it can buckle the foundation creating some real problems that can be expensive to fix.

We called Shads Plumbing to come out to look at some problems we were having. I met Steve and he walked me through some problems that he saw and explained to me in detail how he would fix them. He gave me an estimate of what I wanted done and he was a whole lot cheaper than others that I had called. They came out the next day and fixed all my problems. I was very impressed!! I would recommend Shads Plumbing to anyone who wants a job done right at a great cost.
