How do you know when your sewer line requires repairing?
Sewer lines can become cracked or out of alignment for a number of reasons:
- Invasive tree roots
- Extreme temperatures
- Ground shifting
If a faulty sewer line is not dealt with immediately, it can ruin your pipes and result in sewage backingup through your toilets and even on your lawn.
The last thing you want is a sewer line emergency, here are a few things to suggest that your sewer line might be in need of repair:
- Slow drains
- Foul odors coming from the drain
- Foundational Water Damage
You may want to consider having your home inspected if you become aware of any of these issues. Delaying this can result in additional damage.
What are some signs your home may need professional drain cleaning?
To maintain your pipes in good working order and free flowing you need to have your drains cleaned on a regular basis. Professional drain cleaning may be required if any of the following issues are present:
- Frequent drain clogs
- Foul odors wafting up from your drain
- Water flooding in your basement or floor drain
We will eliminate any blockage and recover the full function of your sewer lines as part of our complete draining cleaning services. We have the experience and knowledge needed to find the blockage and purge it. We will help keep your drains free flowing for the longterm. No matter what is causing problems in your pipes, we can deal with it for you.
We can eliminate stubborn tree roots and other debris that have been attached to pipe walls using state-of-the-art hydrojetting services. This highly effective service can also refresh older pipes by removing calcium buildup that occurs with age. With our professional drain cleaning solutions, your pipes will end up like new and their lifespan will be extended.
When should you replace your water heater?
It can be tempting to put off replacing your water heater. There never seems to be a good time to do it. The typical lifespan of this unit is 7-10 years. If you have an older unit that is starting to show signs of failing, you might want to start thinking about a replacement. Installing a new, more efficient unit will help you spend less on repair bills that may begin to accumulate as your unit ages.
Signals it is time to replace your water heater:
- Poor water quality: Are you beginning to notice sediment or rest in your water? This is yet another sign that your tank is corroded, and that your water heater should be replaced.
- Lack of hot water: Has there been a change in your water temperature? Are you using up hot water too soon? There may be an fundamental issue with your water heater that requires a replacement. We will check out your unit and offer you a economical option.
- Leaking tank: If you see puddles near the base of the tank, this is a sure sign that the tank is leaking. This is often due to corrosion from sediments and minerals in the water. A leaky tank cannot be fixed with a quick repair. More often than not, you will need to replace your entire water heater. Don’t worry, we will help you find the best model that meets your needs and budget.
Is Trenchless Sewer Repair Right for You?
Should you decide you don’t want to dig out the sewer line to repair it you may be in luck. Many homeowners in the region opt for trenchless sewer line repairs. There are many benefits to trenchless repair. They include:
- Damage – If your sewer line repair is needed somewhere in your yard or below a building, digging to the repair will damage your lawn or basement. A trenchless repair may keep your gardening intact.
- Cost – Without having to dig to get to the pipes, you will save money on the repair.
- Time – Excavating is the largest part of a sewer line repair. Making a repair without digging can save a lot of time.
Signs you Definitely Need to Repipe
The idea of repiping your home can appear overwhelming. Therefore, many homeowners will continuously postpone repiping. However, there are a number of signs that suggest you probably should not put off repiping. Typical signs include water pressure issues, severe changes in the smell or color of your water, multiple repairs and frequent leaks. If you experience any of of these issues, you could consider repiping.
How to Prevent a Clogged Toilet
Among the most common plumbing problems in your home, a clogged toilet can result in major problems if left alone. Some ways to protect against a clogged toilet are as follows:
- Use a lighter toilet paper or use less toilet paper.
- Installing childproof locks on the toilet seat so that children cannot flush foreign objects.
- Flush twice if necessary.
- Place a small trash can next to the toilet for non water soluble items such as paper towels and diapers.
