    Broken Sewer Line Repair Pearland TX

    We will assess your Pearland TX and Houston TX Sewer Line Repair needs, evaluate any cracks or damage, and determine the best course of action to get your sewer working properly again. While every system and sewer layout is unique, there are some actions that can be taken to repair or lengthen the lifespan of your existing sewer pipes:

    • Reline the Existing Pipes – We can reline the interior of the pipes to repair any cracks and help prevent future ones from occurring. It creates an interior sleeve or lining that works like a pipe within a pipe.
    • Pipe Replacement – If you don’t want to replace your entire system, we may be able to pull a new sewer pipe through the old one. This technique involves breaking apart the damaged pipe and seamlessly replacing it with a new one.
    • Pipe Maintenance – We can also inspect, evaluate, and clean your pipes on a regular basis to help prevent any cracks or bursts from happening. This regular maintenance helps avoid any large debris or buildup and actively prevents the worst from happening.

    What Causes Damaged Sewer Pipes?

    From blocked pipes to wear and tear and septic or sewer backups, there are several reasons as to why damage can occur and why our Houston sewer pipe repair services may be necessary:

    Tree Roots

    Nature isn’t always the most forgiving when it comes to underground pipes. One of the most common reasons for our Houston sewer pipe repair services are tree roots. Roots naturally search for sources of water and as your sewer pipe has water running through it, it’s natural for roots to seek them out. Tree roots can wrap around and break into pipes, clogging, weakening, and even cracking the structure. Clay sewer pipes, typically found in older homes, are the most susceptible to damage from tree roots.

    Corroded Pipes

    Most sewer pipes these days are created from PVC, but older homes may have steel and cast iron pipes that are galvanized to prevent rusting. Unfortunately, these pipes are at a high risk of corroding due to calcium and magnesium build-up that occurs naturally from normal use. If corrosion is left untreated, it can leave the pipe susceptible to leaks and cracks.

    Clogged Pipes Due to Debris and Foreign Objects

    Your home’s sewage lines are only equipped to handle human waste and toilet paper. It’s important to avoid flushing anything through your pipes that isn’t supposed to be there. Wrappers, garbage, paper towels, and other foreign objects are unable to break down like toilet paper and natural sewage and can cause a blockage. Cooking oils such as olive oil can also clog pipes over time so it’s better to dispose of oil in a different manner whenever possible.

    Extreme Temperatures

    Extremely high temperatures can sometimes cause the weakening of pipes, but the bigger problem occurs with cooler temperatures. Ice in particular can wreak havoc on pipes causing breaks and cracks as the ice expands.

    Signs You Need Sewer Line Repair

    In order to prevent sewer damage or reduce the damage it can cause, it’s helpful to know how to spot the signs of a damaged sewer system. This way, you can take immediate action and give Santana Bros Plumbing a call. Here are a few signs indicating that you may need our Houston TX and Pearland tx sewer line repair services:
    Flooded or Foul-Smelling Yard

    Flooded or Foul-Smelling Yard

    A flooded yard that smells bad can be a sign of a broken sewer pipe. These pipes are often buried up to six feet under the ground. A broken pipe can result in pooling above ground, but as gas rises quicker than liquid, it’s more likely that you’d be able to smell the issue before seeing it. If there is a foul smell and unusual puddles in your yard, it is likely that you may be in need of our Houston sewer pipe repair services. Don’t hesitate, contact us today!
    Draining Difficulties

    Draining Difficulties

    It sounds strange, but listen to your toilet. Blockages that occur in the main sewage line will cause drainage issues throughout your home. Toilets will make a gurgling noise as air gets pushed back up the line as waste attempts to drain.
    Water Damage in the Home

    Water Damage in the Home

    Everyone’s nightmare is water damage or flooding that can occur if a drain line leaks or breaks in the home. This may be as obvious as seeping water or if the break is small, it may present as mold spreading on floors and walls.
    If you see or experience any of the above issues, contact the Pearland TX sewer line repair experts here at Santana Bros. Plumbing immediately.
