A lateral line is an underground pipe that connects your plumbing to a municipal sewer system. When you’re are required to abandon your septic tank for a municipal sewer, H.L. Stoneberger can simplify the transition process by providing efficient, cost-effective new sewer line installations in Harrisburg and beyond. We take care of the whole process, from the initial excavation to arranging the final municipal inspection. Once your new system has been installed, we can help you keep it running its best with comprehensive repairs and regular scheduled maintenance.
Common Sewer Lateral Problems
Being aware of some of the sewer lateral problems common to Mechanicsburg-area homes or business can help you avoid the necessity for expensive or time-consuming repairs. Some of the frequent causes of sewer lateral issues include:
Grease buildup: By far the biggest cause of sewer lateral line breakdowns is the buildup of fats, oils and grease (FOG) in the piping. This can be prevented by properly disposing of cooking byproducts in the home or business — never flush oil, grease or other food down the toilet or sink.
Root intrusion: Tree and plant roots can intrude on sewer lateral lines, resulting in potentially serious damage. Don’t plant any new trees in the area of your sewer lateral, and if existing growth is threatening to intrude on your line, regular cleaning can prevent the problem from progressing to the point where extensive repairs are needed.
Worn pipes: Like all piping, sewer lateral lines can wear out over time. Aside from being diligent about maintenance and practicing proper FOG disposal, there isn’t much you can do to prevent time from taking its toll. A sewer lateral inspection can let you know the condition of your piping and whether or not you should begin planning for a replacement in the future.
