Knowing when to Call for Repairs
It would be nice if you could have monthly staff meetings with all of the appliances and systems in your home. That way, you would always know when there was a problem you needed to do something about. But as it is, you can’t see your sewer line or ask it how it’s doing, so how do you know when there’s a problem? Luckily, there are other ways to find out if there’s a leak.
Signs of Water Damage or High Water Bills: Leaks can sometimes be sneaky and stay where you can’t see them. But other times, you’ll be able to see stains on the ceiling or walls of your house. There might be puddles on your floor, wet spots on your carpet, or higher water bills. You can also check your water meter when all the water is off in the house to see if it’s still ticking.
Clogged Drains or System Backups: If you’re getting frequent clogs, there might be a problem in your sewer line. Another sign of sewer line problems is water backing up into your tub or other areas when you flush the toilet. Some sewer line clogs can come from roots growing into the pipes, so you’ll need a sewer line repair to handle that kind of damage.
Changes in Your Yard: Check for pools of water or lush spots in your yard. Unless the rain has only been falling on one part of your lawn, it probably means you’ve got a sewer line leak.
Should You Repair or Replace Your Sewer Line?
The decision to replace your whole sewer line is one that you shouldn’t have to make on your own. Our plumbers are friendly and know what’s best for your home’s plumbing, so they’ll give you the best advice you could ask for. We’ll help you decide if the problem is something that can be fixed.
Usually, if there is an issue in just one area of your sewer line like a clog or a root invasion, we can fix that one area with a residential sewer line repair. We’ll use drain cameras to find the exact location of the problem and then we’ll take care of it. Sometimes, your whole sewer line can become damaged from old age or bad piping materials and installations. We’ll recommend a replacement in these types of situations. Sometimes, these types of problems feel like they come out of nowhere, and it can be hard to prepare. That’s why we always offer financing to make big projects like this a possibility for your family.
What to Expect During a Sewer Line Repair
Sometimes when you need a residential sewer line repair, our team will have to dig a trench in your yard to get to the area that needs attention. The good news is that we don’t have to dig up the whole line just to find the problem. We’ll use our cameras to find the exact spot that needs help. We’ll only dig up that one area. Then we’ll put everything back in place and clean up the mess. We treat your yard like it were ours and try to do as little damage as possible.
