There are parts of your home, even those that you depend upon daily, throughout the day, that you simply don’t keep at the forefront of your mind. If your sewer line is among them, don’t feel too badly about it. Most of us don’t really sit around wondering what type of condition our sewer lines are in. That being said, any problems with a sewer line are certainly a big deal, and you need to schedule your sewer and drain repair in Phoenix as promptly as possible.
Doing so, of course, means that you must recognize signs of trouble with your sewer line to begin with. We can help you to do just that. In today’s post, our drain and sewer line experts are going to share some information with you about why sewer lines may be damaged, as well as how you can spot any potential signs of trouble. If you have any questions or concerns, remember that the pros at The Sunny Plumber Phoenix are always here to help.
The Nose Knows
Considering the one function of your sewer line is to remove waste and wastewater from your property in a convenient and hygienic manner, it stands to reason that any problems with that sewer line are going to have a pretty serious effect on your property. One of the most easily noticed is a certain odor permeating throughout the air. We’re not going to get too specific, beyond saying that you’ll probably know it when you smell it.
If a sewer odor does start manifesting in your home or around the property, then you need to contact us right away. It probably goes without saying, but sewer leaks of this nature are not just, well, gross. They are also incredibly unhygienic and can do real damage to your property. When your nose sounds (smells?) the alarm, we should be the first ones that you call.
How’s Your Drainage?
You may think that sewage leaking out of the pipe is the only symptom that you’ll encounter when your sewer line is compromised, but that’s not really the case. A common cause of sewer leaks is the infiltration of tree roots into the sewer line. When that happens, serious backups can develop. If you are not able to drain the drains throughout your home or flush your toilet effectively, it could be due to just such an infiltration.
That means that you need to have those roots removed and that damage repaired ASAP. The longer that you wait, the worse the problem will get—and the greater the risk of a serious backup in your home becomes. Make the right choice, and don’t just try to dump a bunch of liquid drain cleaners down your plumbing fixtures. Our scour jet services and other offerings are much, much more effective and reliable. This is the type of situation in which the skill and expertise that trained professionals possess is a very hot commodity.
