Sewer Line Obstructions

sewer line obstructions

Sewer line obstructions cause serious problems with toilets and general plumbing. One common obstruction is tree roots.  The roots grow in search of water and moisture while unknowingly breaching sewer lines. This breach causes an obstruction leading to slow water flow and clogged toilets.

Landscaping

In the harsh Las Vegas heat, trees and shrubs are commonly planted in residential and commercial landscaping. Depending on proximity to drain and sewer lines, growing plant life spreads its roots searching for a reliable water source. In drought or water restriction months, the roots will move towards moisture, which is the sewer line where water frequently flows. This is the prime area for water and a great place for roots to grow. As pipes age, small cracks occur causing leaks. These leaks attract roots and may lead to serious underground damage.

Obstruction Removal

When sewer line obstructions occur, a professional plumber is needed. For severe obstructions, the pipe is breached and major water begins to leak underground. When a tree root actually penetrates the pipe, it will continue to grow and destroy the pipe.

When pipes burst, our team of trained professionals arrives to dig up the pipe for a replacement. In some cases tree roots can be removed without a complete pipe replacement. Our team provides the options that are best for each situation.

Detecting Plumbing Issues

A rise is in the monthly water bill is the first indicator of a water leak. When standing water or wet asphalt can be seen on a regular basis, this is also a good indicator. With superior technology, our team identifies water leaks before they become a major issue.

Superior Plumbing Las Vegas

Superior Plumbing Las Vegas is a full service, licensed and bonded residential plumber. With more than 30 years experience, our plumbers are expertly trained for any plumbing situation.

In Las Vegas, pipes can burst when temperatures heat up causing pressure to build inside the pipes. Once the pipe bursts, pooling water or gushing water is usually the result.  

Severe Heat Causes Problems

Severe Las Vegas heat dries out the land and dry soil is much looser than moist soil. Underground pipes have more room to shift and move around in land affected by extreme heat. This may lead to older, underground pipes breaking as they shift and move more than usual. While unlikely to happen inside a home, main underground pipes on their route from the road to your home can definitely mean trouble. Cutting back on water usage during extreme heat can help relieve pressure on the entire system and pipes.

We’ve put together a few Superior Plumbing Las Vegas tips to help reduce the chances of broken pipes:

  • Water early in the morning or after the sun has gone down
  • Follow the Las Vegas Valley Water watering guide
  • Keep areas around irrigation systems clean to allow water to flow
