Septic Line Repair and Replacement

Septic Line Repair and Replacement

The functionality of any home’s infrastructure largely relies on properly operating drains, as they facilitate the entry and exit of water and other liquids. Equally crucial are your septic lines; issues must be swiftly addressed as soon as they arise. By doing so, you can avoid more expensive repairs, potential health risks from sewage leaks, and the considerable costs and inconvenience associated with a full septic system replacement.

Several factors can compromise the integrity of septic lines. The cyclical freezing and thawing of the ground, coupled with soil shifting, may exert pressure on the lines, leading to potential breaks. Septic lines also come with a finite lifespan, as aging materials gradually deteriorate. Frequently, issues remain hidden for an extended period until they escalate into major problems. Top of Form

Septic Line Repair and Replacement FAQ

How long do septic lines last in Northeast Wisconsin?

Various factors contribute to the lifespan of septic lines, including the quality of their installation, whether the system is receiving regular maintenance, water usage, soil conditions, and the proximity of trees to the septic system. Generally, septic lines can last up to 30 years. It’s recommended in most cases to replace your septic lines around the same time you replace your septic tank.

What are common causes of septic line failure?

Septic lines most commonly fail due to rupture or separation caused by the intrusion of tree roots; shifting, settling soil; or temperatures causing septic lines to freeze. They may also be crushed if driven over or damaged by the pressure of a clog.

Does homeowners insurance cover the repair or replacement of a septic line?

Homeowners insurance usually places septic systems within the scope of “other structures” coverage, which safeguards unattached property features like a garage or shed. The extent of coverage for septic line repairs is contingent on the terms outlined in your policy. While many standard policies tend to exclude coverage for repairs or replacements stemming from wear and tear, they may still cover damages resulting from unexpected events, like a fire. It’s recommended that you consult with your insurance provider for specific coverage details.

Is it possible to repair or replace septic lines during the winter?

Yes, septic line problems can happen any time of year. And while replacing septic lines in the winter can be challenging in Green Bay and Northeast Wisconsin due to the cold temperatures and snow, Greenway LS’ licensed team of excavators and repair professionals have the necessary training and equipment to perform septic line repairs and replacements in any season.

How do I keep my septic line healthy?

  • Hire a licensed drainage specialist to redirect rainwater and runoff away from your septic system, preventing it from being overwhelmed and ensuring effective wastewater treatment.
  • Never flush or pour “cloggers,” like grease or cooking oil, sanitary products, diapers, wipes, and paper towels, down toilets or drains.
  • Avoid using chemical drain cleaners as they will disrupt the balance of beneficial bacteria in the septic tank, impacting its ability to dissolve hair, grease and other cloggers.
  • Never drive or park heavy vehicles over a septic field as it could potentially damage the pipes and soil absorption area.
