Troubleshooting Sewer Line Replacements
How to Know If It Needs Replaced
While modern technology and improved design have reduced the need for water and sewer line replacements in recent years, the towns of Littleton and Denver installed many of their water and sewer lines decades ago. As age is the primary culprit in creating problems in home water lines, you should be aware of what signs there may be.
If you suspect you may need a repair or replacement, knowing what to look for is the key to making the right decision. So, how do you know if you need a sewer replacement?
First, it’s important to know that, although often used interchangeably, water lines and sewer lines are different. A water line refers to the piping that brings you the fresh water you use to brush your teeth or shower, whereas a sewer line carries the waste that is removed from your home.
You may need a main waterline replacement if your water drains abnormally slowly or you hear your toilet making gurgling noises. Gurgling noises are often the result of water line blockages.
You may need a sewer line replacement if you notice a particularly bad stench near and around where your sewer pipes are.
If you believe your water line or sewage line needs repair, there are often a wide variety of water main replacement methods, though the best option depends on your specific situation. Our team at Simply Sewers is happy to answer any questions you might have, and assist with any water line or sewer repairs.
Why Might Main Water/Sewer Lines Need to be Replaced?
When it comes to issues involving your water or sewer line, there are often a handful of main culprits that could be causing them.
Worn Down Pipes
One of the most common reasons your water or sewer line might have problems is simply the result of age. If you live in an older area of town, you’ll likely run into some pipe issues down the line.
Old pipe and lines often need to be replaced instead of repaired.
Clogged Lines and Pipes
If you notice your sink or toilet piping is becoming clogged or slow to drain, it could be the result of a blockage in the line. Not putting anything excessively large down the drain can help prevent this from happening.
Believe it or not, the roots of nearby trees can sometimes interfere with underground piping, particularly sewer lines. As tree roots expand many feet underground, they can interrupt or dislodge your water or sewer lines.

Is it my city's responsibility to replace my sewer line?
