SIGNS THAT IT’S TIME FOR SEWER REPAIR
If you want to avoid sewer repair in your home, pay attention to your home’s warning signs. Most homeowners probably know the function of sewer lines is to transport waste water from their home to underground sewer mains. After that point, we don’t really give much thought about it until a clog or slow draining situation occurs. However, homeowners who know what to watch for can help prevent sewer repair problems and avoid significant damage to their home before more expensive sewer repair or sewer line cleaning become necessary. Micro Plumbing Inc. has the sewer camera technology and expertise to come and evaluate your situation, giving you an accurate description of what the problem is. The following are issues to watch for:
- Slow or clogged drains and toilets
- Sewer back up in drains or toilets
- A gurgling sound coming from the drain or toilet
- Water around floor drain in the basement
WHAT CAUSES SEWER LINE PROBLEMS THAT CAN LEAD TO COSTLY SEWER REPAIRS?
A broken or clogged sewer line can happen in a number of ways, resulting in sewer repair needs.
- Tree roots are the first thing to look for and are usually the main suspect when it comes to sewer-line damage.
- Clay tile pipes that are older are most likely to be affected, but tree roots have the ability to penetrate PVC pipes or concrete lines.
- Foreign objects that should have not been put down drains or toilets can block the line and become lodged. Some of the most common items to clog drains in your bathroom are improperly disposed materials such as wipes and feminine products, hair and dental floss, and other beauty products. In your kitchen, food remnants and grease or oils may be the culprit. Regardless of what’s causing the clog, the build-up of sewage can lead to broken pipes and lines.
- Extreme temperature changes can seriously affect pipes, particularly in areas prone to freezing temperatures.
- General deterioration over time will cause collapsing, cracking, or breaking.
- Ground shifting or improper installation can also lead to your home needing sewer line repair or sewer line cleaning.
