When you run a business, your sewer lines are most likely the last thing on your mind. Yet, like any pipe, sewer lines have the tendency to wear down with age and suffer from blockages.
Sewer lines are repairable, but sometimes it may be best to replace your lines. So how do you know when it’s the best time to replace your business’ sewer lines?
3 Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Sewer Line
It can be challenging to determine whether you need a replacement or a repair. But odds are, if you’ve been calling for repairs on a regular basis, it may be time to replace your sewer line.
Here are a few signs it may be time to replace your sewer lines instead of calling for yet another repair:
- Your business experiences an ongoing stench
Your business has a reputation to protect. The last thing you want to worry about it a foul smell. Blockages in your business’ sewer lines can cause sewer gasses to back up into your building. The result? Sewer stench. Sewer stench is one of the earliest indicators that you have a problem with your sewer lines.
- You have your rooter service on speed-dial
Another sign it’s time to replace your sewer line is if you’re calling a rooter service on the regular. Blockages happen and rooter services help. But if the problem is reoccurring, odds are a rooter service alone isn’t going to take care of the problem. A sewer line replacement may be in your best interest.
- You’re experiencing sewer backups and slow drainage
This is one of the most unmistakable signs it’s time to have your sewer line replaced. Sewer backups and slow drains can only get worse without repair. And if repairs don’t fix the problem, you can only expect ongoing rooter calls and expenses. A sewer line replacement may be your best bet when all is said and done.
