Sewer lines can be a different problem. Sewer line leaks go undetected until there are visible signs of foundation damage. In areas with spacious soil, a leaking sewer line can cause heaving, which is when the slab swells enough to lift the building. Also another sign indicating a potential sewer line leak is a dome or raised section in the floor.
Repairing Sewer Lines
When there is a leaking sewer line, fixing it may require the services of a plumber because of the types of pipes used for sewer lines. Health-related issues involving exposure to human waste can be faced if the incorrect procedure is performed. Depending on the age of the home, the pipe may be cast iron, clay or PVC. Special rubber couplings are ideal for connecting different types of pipes but they are not recommended for use underneath concrete slabs. Rubber boots can deteriorate over time, especially when they are used outdoors
