Common Sewer Pipe Issues You Can Avoid

common sewer pipe in Atlanta, GA

While The Pipe Medic offers highly efficient pipe repair in Roswell, GA that can address your most pressing sewer pipe concerns, there are steps you can take to prevent these issues from happening in the first place.

Below, our pipe repair experts outline the most common sewer pipe issues we can help you avoid.


Clogs can make the sewer line burst if the internal pressure exceeds acceptable levels. Other sewer pipe problems that can be caused by clogs include unpleasant odors that linger around the home, slow drains, and even sewer backups. You can reduce the likelihood of these issues by being mindful of everything you put inside your toilet. If you hear unusual sounds such as gurgling noises coming from your pipes, consider calling us for pipe repair services.


With time, pipes will get old, deteriorate, become rusty, and just generally will become inefficient. While some sewer pipe materials such as PVC can last up to 100 years, you can consider a pipe replacement even if your pipes are only around 50 years old or so to ensure that your sewer pipes will function properly for years to come.


Leaks can cause quite a few other problems for your property, such as water damage, flooding, and mold growth. The best way to stop leaks before they even happen is to invest in regular pipe maintenance. This is also a good way to stay on top of any sewer pipe issue that might, for now, seem minor enough not to warrant prompt action.


A sewer pipe problem of this scale can look like it’s due entirely to accidents or bad luck. In fact, some sinkholes are due to aging pipes. But surprisingly, this is a problem that you can actually reduce the likelihood of. You can start by relying only on a reputable pipe repair company for all of your sewer repair needs. Sinkholes are primarily caused by shoddy workmanship such as improper soil compaction.
