What Are Common Sewer Line Issues?
Sewer lines from house to street are often out of sight and out of mind until an issue develops. The following includes some of the most common sewer line issues that require prompt, professional plumbing repair or replacement.
Clogged Sewer Line
Clogs can occur for many reasons but they generally show one or more telltale signs, including a bubbling or gurgling toilet, slow-flowing drains, and odor coming from the kitchen drain.
Bubbling Or Gurgling Toilet
This noise happens when air is trapped in the line and works its way back up to the toilet. It usually means there’s a blockage in the gas venting system.
FOG (fats, oils and grease), hair, paper products, and other and non-flushable items are common culprits behind a slow-flowing drain and clogged sewer line.
Odor From Kitchen Drains
Food residue, FOG, and other gunk regularly builds up around and/or in kitchen drains, causing foul odors. If the residue builds up inside the sewer line for a long time, sulfide gas is produced as the organic matter decomposes. This gas gives off a rotten-egg smell.
Broken Sewer Line
As with sewer line clogs, breaks in the sewer line can likewise occur due to a range of different causes. A broken sewer line usually features one or more of the following symptoms.
Higher-Than-Usual Water Bill
Unless your home or business is connected to a private water well, a higher-than-usual water bill typically signals an issue with the sewer line. Check for leaks caused by damaged seals around pipe joints.
Water Or Sewage In The Yard
If you see puddles of sewage or water in the yard, and there hasn’t been heavy rain or flooding recently, it’s probably a broken sewer line.
While sewage backup can indicate a clogged line, it’s more frequently associated with broken lines. Waste often backs up into a toilet or basement, but it could also back up into any drain attached to the plumbing system.

Commercial Sewer Line Repair
As a business owner, the last thing you want is a prolonged disruption of operations to your company. When you contact Sunshine Plumbing and Gas for commercial plumbing services in Gainesville or Ocala, we work quickly to fix any problem in the plumbing system. The traditional and trenchless methods are available for commercial sewer lines, and we can inspect your property and help you determine the best option.
Trenchless Method Repair
Also called cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP), the trenchless method of sewer line repair consists of making small access holes at the beginning and end of the damaged pipe. The new sewer line is then pulled through the existing pipe and connected to existing, undamaged pipe.
Residential Sewer Line Replacement
If the sewer line to your home requires replacement, call the plumbers in Gainesville and Ocala at Sunshine Plumbing and Gas for high-quality residential plumbing service. We use an in-line camera to inspect the line and find the root of the problem. Replacement is done either traditionally or with a trenchless method. The choice of method depends on the condition of the sewer line, how the lines are set up, and the home’s location.
Initial diagnostic plumbing tests for the sewer system will help us determine if and when a traditional sewer line repair is required. With a traditional replacement of sewer lines, a backhoe digs up the area around the sewer line and refills the area after the new line is installed.
