Learning sewer line repair is needed isn’t news any homeowner’s wants to hear. However, sewer backup is a far worse situation, and the optimal goal is to receive the repair of your home’s plumbing in Arlington prior to backup occurring. Contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing today to schedule service and/or repair for drainage issues.
Being aware of the early warning signs can alert you of a developing drain or a sewer pipe issue, enabling you to receive a repair before disaster strikes.
- Slow drainage is an indication of a developing clog or other problem. When slow drainage affects every fixture, the issue is likely to be in the sewer pipe itself.
- Toilets often provide the earliest warning sign as follows:
- When flushing the toilet results in water coming back up in the sink, tub or shower, there is a high potential for a sewer clog.
- When another drain is in use, the washing machine for example, and bubbling occurs in the toilet or other drain, a potential sewer pipe problem is likely.
- Foul odors emanating from drains may indicate a dried out trap, this typically occurs in seldom used fixtures. Allow water to run to refill the trap. If the odor persists, contact a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Arlington.
Advanced Signs of Sewer Pipe Issues
When a sewer clog is present, it will continue to build over time until a sewer pipe blockage. As it enlarges, additional signs are likely to occur. Eventually complete blockage will occur. As the clog enlarges, you may notice the following signs:
- Puddles of water on the lawn may occur, and may or may not have a foul odor.
- Sewer effluent and increased moisture can feed grass, fostering unusually lush growth, and vibrant in color near the sewer lines.
- The increased moisture may cause depressed areas in the lawn.
- While a localized clog in the drain will slow or block drainage, problems in the sewer pipe can also cause the same slow drainage. However, when the sewer pipe is involved, the slow drainage is for all plumbing fixtures and appliances with drainage. Eventually, a complete blockage may occur, resulting in the backup of sewer effluent into the home. Therefore, it’s best not to wait until backup occurs. When all drains are slow, contact our plumbers for the repair of your home’s plumbing in Arlington.
