Damaged Caused by a Broken Drain

Taking care of a damaged drain or broken sewer line is not something you should take care of immediately for the convenience of it. You should arrange for rapid repairs and services to preserve the well-being of your own health and home, too. The truth is a back-flowing or overflowing drain can ultimately cause a lot of harm if it isn’t addressed soon.

Problems that can be caused by a broken or ruptured drain include:

  • Water damage: Overflowing water can start to flood your property in a matter of minutes, depending on its source. The water damage caused can be extensive. Carpeting and flooring are the most susceptible to permanent damage if the problem is not fixed right away, but the walls and woodwork behind them can also be jeopardized. Furniture, electronics, and other personal items are also at risk, of course.
  • Foundation damage: If the foundation under your home is porous, then it can start to absorb excess water that has been left to stand. Too much absorption can cause the concrete to flex, swell, and crack. With a weakened foundation, the stability of your entire home could be weakened as well.
  • Health hazards and illnesses: Water damage from an overflowing water line or drain can trigger mold growth that releases unsafe spores into the air you breathe. Backflow from a broken sewer line can introduce hazardous wastewater into your home, creating a significant health risk. Depending on the layout of your plumbing system, it could even make wastewater mix with potable water.

Signs of a Ruptured Sewer Pipe

Not every sewer line rupture or clog will be immediately obvious. That does not mean they require services that are any less urgent, though. It just means you might need to keep your eyes open for subtle signs of a broken sewer line.

Your sewer line is likely ruptured if you notice:

  • Foul odors: Is an unplaceable stench lingering in your home? Does it get stronger in any room where there is a faucet, drain, or toilet? It is very likely that your sewer line is broken or clogged beneath your feet.
  • Frequent clogs: Clogs should not be so frequent that you can count the days with them. If different drains around your property keep clogging several times in a week or month, then there might be a serious issue deeper in your sewer system.
  • Wet spots in your yard: There should be no unexplained wet spots in your front or backyard. Puddles forming in the grass (that cannot be explained by rain or sprinklers) may indicate a sewer line problem. The same is true if you notice certain spots of your yard have suddenly become much greener and lusher than usual.

Septic Tank Cleaning

If your home isn’t connected to a sewer, it’s likely connected to a septic system or tank. Septic tanks are the most common non-sewer waste collection systems and they require pretty low maintenance. However, they still need regular pumping and service to stay functional. Zoom Drain of Philadelphia offers septic tank emergency pumping services when an issue arises without warning. To help keep your septic tank working properly, we recommend having it pumped every two to three years. When cleaning is done consistently and continuously, you could be saving several thousand dollars on a septic system replacement.
