In Denver, pipes are likely to become damaged due to misuse of fixtures, drains, or pipes. In many cases, pipes become disturbed when you flush or drain objects that the sewage system wasn’t designed to handle. This includes paper towels, wipes, and other personal products. Ruptures and clogs are the most common types of damage that you’ll encounter with your sewer line.
An indicator that your Denver sewage system is clogged is if your property’s drains are frequently backed up and in need of plumbing work. Flushing down debris or pouring grease down the drain can lead to clogged pipes. Avoiding these behaviors can help maintain the long-term health of your sewage system. Even in Denver, there is a chance the soil around the plumbing can be soft. These conditions can result in the pipes to sink in certain places. This type of circumstance will require sewer plumbing services, something we offer at 911 Rooter and Plumbing.
Many older Denver homes have sewer lines made from clay pipes or other porous materials. The connecting points between clay pipes are not as tight as modern materials, which can lead to ruptures underneath the surface. It’s also common to see roots from trees or bushes puncturing the pipes to access the water inside. Because this is all happening below ground, it can be hard to notice right away. It’s important to call right away if you think something is wrong with your sewage line.
