A collapsed water or sewer line at your Bakersfield residential or commercial property can cause a major headache, but the professional team of experts at The Plumbing Doc is qualified and ready to help get your pipelines back in order.
The Causes of Collapsed Pipes
Collapsed pipes can cause a lot of expensive and time-consuming damage to your California home or business, so it’s important to understand some of the common causes of collapsed pipes:
Age. The age of your pipes is a major factor, because older pipes tend to be made out of less durable materials. These materials are more likely to deteriorate and increase the chance of a pipeline collapse.
Tree roots. Tree roots tend to grow toward pipes, especially those that are leaking water and other nutrients into the soil. If those tree roots invade the pipes, they weaken the structural integrity of the pipes and can cause them to collapse.
Soil. Corrosive soils can eat away at your pipes and form leaks and cracks. Over time, these leaks and cracks can grow and lead to collapse.
If you’re concerned about the age and condition of your pipes, call our friendly and knowledgeable technicians to schedule an inspection. Understanding the risk factors, conditions, and problem-areas of your pipelines can help prevent a collapse from occurring.
The Signs of Collapsed Pipes
Left untreated, your aging and damaged pipes could collapse. If you notice pools of water standing on your property, higher water bills, lower water pressure, musty or foul odors, or persistent clogs, you may have a collapsed pipe. Flooding from collapsed pipes could lead to serious structural damage, organisms and mold in the standing water could negatively impact your health, and the inability to use your water efficiently could reduce the effectiveness of your business.
Don’t let collapsed pipes hamper your life. Call your local plumbing experts to get the situation back under control.
