Services – Sewer Repair
Having to clean up after a damaged or clogged sewer line can be a nightmare, but luckily for homeowners, there are ways that you can prevent this disaster before it occurs. If you are experiencing the following issues, it may be time to contact us.
- There is no water in your toilet.
- You notice gurgling noises coming from your drains or toilet.
- Sewage backs up into your bathtub or toilet.
- You notice the smell of sewage coming from your yard, basement, or drains.
- The water in your bathtub drains at an abnormally slow rate.
The problems listed above are common signs of a clogged or broken sewer line. The backup and smell means that the sewage is not being channeled to the city line properly. Clogs or blockages can also be caused by invasive tree roots and other natural debris.
Consequences of Not Repairing Your Sewer Line
Your home’s sewer line is one of the most important parts of its plumbing system. The sewer line is essentially a large underground drain pipe that rids your home of wastewater by transporting it to your municipal wastewater system or a septic tank. If your sewer line is broken, clogged or damaged in anyway, wastewater will have no way to exit your home. This can lead to raw sewage backing up and depositing itself into your home or yard. Backups are not only unsanitary, but they can cost thousands of dollars to clean up, in addition to the cost of repairing the sewer line.
